There are a lot of gluten free pizza crusts on the market today. But who needs a pizza crust when you can have a yummy gluten free potato crust? If you’re anything like me, you LOVE potatoes. They’re incredibly versatile – evidenced by their unlikely substitute as gluten free pizza crust!
Easy Gluten Free Pizza Crust
This takes a little bit of prep work, as you must bake the crust first, before topping with your desired pizza toppings. But trust me, the extra step is totally worth it!
What pairs well with potatoes? The toppings possibilities are endless. Broccoli cheese? Sausage, onions, and peppers? Fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil? This potato crust is just waiting to be your blank canvas for any time of pizza you can imagine.
We love fresh tomatoes, so we grabbed a bunch of different types from our garden. There is nothing like a fresh, ripe tomato from your garden. We sliced the tomatoes thin and salted them, and let them sit while we prepared the crust.
Gluten Free Potato Pizza Crust Recipe
For the potato gluten free pizza crust, you will need:
- 2 cups grated raw potatoes (firmly packed)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 c grated onion
- Olive Oil
You can also substitute pre-shredded hash browns from the frozen section of your grocery store (assuming the ingredient list is gluten free).
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Spray a 9 inch pie pan with olive oil spray.
Place potatoes in a colander and add the salt. Let the potatoes sit for 10 minutes, and squeeze out all the excess moisture – you want your potatoes as dry as possible to get them crispy.
Mix potatoes, egg, and onion gently.
Pat the mixture firmly into pie pan. Build up the sides of the pan to form an outer crust.
Bake the crust for 30-40 mins or until golden brown. For a crispier crust, brush the crust with olive oil after 20 minutes.
Take the crust out of the oven and let cool
Gluten Free Pizza Recipe: What To Do With Gluten Free Pizza Crust
Once you’re ready to build your pizza, preheat the oven to 375.
I took my salted tomatoes, tossed lightly with some olive oil, and layered them onto the crust. I then sprinkled some fresh parmesan over the tomatoes. I ripped up some fresh mozzarella and placed it on the tomatoes in big chunks. Afterwards, I dotted the pizza with gently torn fresh basil.
Stick the pizza in the oven and make until the cheese is melty and golden.
Oh boy, I could hardly wait for it to cool before digging in. The verdict? This potato crust is super crispy – even the next day! The gluten free pizza crusts I’ve tried in the past have been doughy, so this was a nice change.
The toppings were simple and let the fresh tomatoes shine, but you could really put anything on this pizza. The possibilities are endless! So go crazy and enjoy your new found potato crust freedom!
