Units Scale



  • 2 cups (around 250g) Bob’s Red Mill gluten free all-purpose flour (this flour has no thickeners or leaveners)
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons Bob’s Red Mill xanthan gum
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine grain kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup (or up to 1 cup) warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil for brushing


  • 1/3 cup BBQ sauce
  • 6 ounces Colby Jack cheese, shredded (*vegan cheese may be substituted)
  • 1 cup diced cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup diced onion
  • salt/pepper
  • feta crumbles *
  • chopped cilantro, to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 450 F.
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder,  xanthan gum, and salt together in a mixing bowl. Measure out a cup (250ml) of warm water. Slowly pour 2/3 cup water into the dry mix, stirring as you pour. Depending on the type of flour you use, you may need closer to 1 cup water to create a soft sticky dough. If the dough is too dry, add a bit more water, 1-2 tablespoons at a time.
  3. Place the dough out onto a floured surface and form into a smooth ball. NOTE: Gluten free flour has no gluten protein, so you won’t need to knead it much. Next, roll the dough out into a 10-inch circle, then smooth out the sides.
  4. Place the dough into a greased 10-inch cast iron or pizza pan. Pat it out to the edges with your fingers. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil on top. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. After 10 minutes, remove crust from the oven and spread 4-6 tablespoons of BBQ sauce on top. Follow with a layer of shredded Colby cheese, then a layer of arugula, red onion, and sliced cherry tomatoes. Spread them out evenly. Add a little feta cheese or cheese of choice over that.
    Bake for an additional 8-10 minutes or until crisp and golden. For a crispier crust, broil for the final minute.
  6. Remove pizza from oven and allow it to cool for 5 minutes, then garnish with chopped cilantro, salt and pepper.
  7. Slide pizza out of the pan to slice or slice in pan and serve.


  • Freezing dough – You may freeze the dough ball wrapped in wax paper for up to 1 month. Allow to thaw out overnight in fridge before rolling out flat and baking.
  • *vegan parmesan and/or shredded cheese may be substituted.
