Best Ever New York Style Pizza made with a gluten-free crust. The wide slices of thin, crispy crust foldable pizza, just like the authentic New York-Style Pizza, are insanely delicious. The gluten-free pizza is topped with freshly made pizza sauce flavoured with basil, oregano, thyme and garlic, and plenty of grated mozzarella cheese.

Add extra toppings if you wish, and this will undoubtedly be one of the best gluten-free pizzas by far.

What is a New York-Style Pizza?

The famous New York-Style Pizza is a thin crispy crust pizza that is foldable, cut into large pieces, and the toppings are tomato sauce, grated mozzarella cheese, and then your favourite toppings.

The more the better, because they sink in the melted cheese. When making Italian pizza, the cheese topping goes on last. If you haven’t tried a New York-Style Pizza before, you haven’t lived….honestly, it is so good!

NY-Style Gluten-Free Pizza Crust,

Classic NY style pizza crust is made with a yeast dough and takes time to make. In this gluten-free pizza recipe, the dough is leavened with baking soda, and the entire pizza takes only fifteen minutes to put together and fifteen minutes to bake.

This means you can have a crispy gluten-free pizza ready to enjoy in thirty minutes. Who needs a take out?

How is this New York-Style Gluten-Free Pizza made?

I love this gluten-free pizza dough recipe because it is super easy and takes very little time. To make the gluten-free dough, first, whisk the dry ingredients. Then add the wet ingredients, and using a spatula, mix until you form a ball of dough – total time, about one minute.

The gluten-free pizza dough is soft and a bit sticky, and it needs to be rolled out. The best way to do this is between two sheets of plastic wrap and a little sprinkling of flour.

Once the dough is rolled out, the top sheet peels off easily, and the dough is transferred using the other sheet onto the pizza pan.

The NY style pizza has a slightly raised edge around the perimeter, which is made by pressing the edge towards the center until it is slightly raised.

pizza sauce, the details,

The pizza sauce flavour is essential to get the most flavourful NY-style pizza. The sauce is made with herbs, garlic, a splash of olive oil and if you like some heat, red pepper flakes. The sauce is simmered for four minutes, and it’s ready. The store-bought pizza sauce doesn’t come even close to this simply made NY-style gluten-free pizza sauce.

The interesting thing about New York-Style pizza is the toppings. In most pizza recipes, the final topping is typically the cheese. However, this does not apply to New York-Style pizza or Chicago style pizza. The first layer is the pizza sauce and then the mozzarella cheese.

Then, all the other toppings. Often the NY-style pizza has only the tasty pizza sauce and the grated mozzarella cheese. Today I used five toppings, the pizza sauce, cheese, onions, mushrooms and gluten-free pepperoni. The pizza turned out outstanding.

What to do with leftover pizza?

Having any leftover pizza is highly unlikely. If you have a slice or two, preheat the oven to 400 F and reheat the pizza for six minutes. The pizza will be just as delicious. If you love Italian food, check out these gluten-free Italian recipes for inspirations!
