Reclaim Pizza Night With 5 Clever Gluten Free Pizza Crusts

Don’t let your gluten-free lifestyle get in the way of fully enjoying pizza night. Try these clever grain-free solutions and never be relegated to just picking the toppings off the crust again. Because you’re better than that.

1) Cheesy-Crust Skillet Pizza

This recipe turns the cheese on the pizza into the crust itself. So genius. Watch the video to see how easy it is to make with a non-stick pan. Top it any way you want, but use a light touch so the thin crust doesn’t fall apart.

2) Chef John’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Funny how cauliflower’s evolved from that creepy white vegetable mom made us eat to a low-carb master of disguise. Here, it’s combined with egg and cheese to form a crust you can top at will. And its solid 5-star rating tells you it really works. Community member Julie Scriver says she adds Italian seasoning mix to the crust—read her complete review to get all her tips, including how she manages to make it without a food processor.

Still others simply used their favorite meatball mixture for the crust. Watch the video, then give it a try.

Okay, so the directions say to slice the zucchini into rounds, but lots of people went rogue and cut the zucchini lengthwise into long zucchini boats. A boat full of pizza? Sign me up for that cruise.
