Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Mix-in-a-Jar ~ Free Printable Recipe Kit

I have been on a mix-in-a-jar mission this last year. It is so convenient to make dozens of each of your favorite recipes while you have out all the ingredients along with your measuring cups and spoons. Clean up one time instead of twelve! Place your dinner provisions in your pantry and spoil yourself to a future evening of ease in the kitchen! Today we are sharing a gluten-free pizza mix in a jar recipe:

To make the pizza crust mix in a jar ~ 

Place inside a quart-sized jar the following ingredients:
  • 3 c. gluten-free flour blend 
  • ½ tsp. xanthan gum (if your gf flour blend doesn’t include it)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 ½ tbsp. sugar
Stir ingredients together inside the jar. Place lid firmly back on jar and give it a good shake for a final blend. The mix is now complete. Simply label and attach the following directions to the pizza mix or use our shortcut labels (fee printable here) once you master the recipe. Store in the pantry until pizza night!

To prepare the pizza ~ 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Combine the following ingredients in a glass measuring cup or small bowl:
  • 1 1/4 c. warm water (about 110 degrees, you don’t want to kill yeast so not too hot)
  • 1 tbsp.  yeast (we use Saf-instant yeast)
  • 1 ½ tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. light olive oil (or your favorite cooking oil)
Stir gently and let mixture sit for 5 minutes to allow yeast to activate.

~ Next, pour the "pizza mix" into a medium sized mixing bowl. Add the yeast mixture (once it sat for 5 minutes). Stir together until combined using a wooden spoon. 

~ Press dough onto lightly sprayed round-sized pizza pan.  Dough will be very sticky so oil your hands (splash some olive oil onto them and rub hands together) and quickly press out your pizza dough to evenly cover the pan.

~ Let dough bake for 20-25 minutes until starting to look golden on the edges (cracks may appear but that is fine). Then add your pizza sauce and toppings. Put back into oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes until cheese is hot and bubbly.

~ I let our pizza sit for a few minutes before cutting in order to let the cheese set a bit prior to serving (but that is your choice). Enjoy!

Our printable HERE shares what to put in your quart/liter jars, the directions to make the actual pizza, the round labels to fit on your jar lids and a quick version of the directions to paste onto the jar. We reuse the lids each time we refill the jars so that we don't need to continue printing up new ones. I hope you enjoy this gluten-free pizza crust recipe. It was altered slightly from this original recipe (and made into a mix by yours truly) should you like more details of the actual pizza making process.
