Pizza Crust

Makes: one pizza crust

Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Oil-Free, Yeast-Free, Vegan (of course!)

This pizza crust is extremely easy to to make because it only has four ingredients and it only takes about 14 minutes to bake! It may sound a bit odd to add yogurt to your pizza crust; however, the yogurt gives the crust a nice tang and a wonderful consistency! Additionally, yeast is not needed in this crust thanks to the probiotics from the yogurt mixing with the baking powder!

Ingredients:

  • One and 1/4 of a cup of teff flour, plus extra for spreading (see instructions)
  • One and a half tsp. of baking powder
  • 1/2 of a tsp. of salt (I recommend pink Himalayan salt)
  • One cup of plain, unsweetened vegan yogurt (I used Kite Hill)

How to make:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the teff flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add the yogurt to the mixture and mix it in until the dough is homogeneous.
  5. Dust your hands with a small bit of teff flour, then roll the dough into a ball.
  6. Place the dough onto the lined baking sheet, and spread the dough out until it covers the entire sheet. (You may need to re-dust your hands a few times to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands.)
  7. Once the dough is evenly spread out on the baking sheet, place it into the oven for about 14 minutes, or until it has turned brown and has crisped up.
  8. Take the crust out and add your desired toppings.
  9. Bake your pizza until your toppings have cooked to your liking.
  10. Enjoy!
