Gluten Free pizza crust and breadsticks

I’m finally writing down my favorite gluten free, super easy pizza crust recipe.  I discovered it after talking to a coworker that was doing Weight Watchers and watching all the points.  I do care about eating well and healthy, it is ease and simplicity really matter most with my family of 5. So when she mentioned the crust recipe was only 2 ingredients, I was intrigued!

Equal parts flour and greek yogurt.  Yep, that’s it.  Easy right.

For a personal pizza:

  • 1/2 cup (2.75 oz) EB AP Gluten Free Flour
  • 1/2 cup (2.75 oz) Greek Yogurt

For the recipe in the video:

  • 1 pound 9 oz EB AP Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 pound 9 oz Greek Yogurt
  • and a bit of water to get it to all stick together (may or may not be needed)

I wanted to recreate breadsticks I loved while in college at Bowling Green State University, go Falcons! I marinated 2 chicken breasts in a garlic seasoning for, well longer than I anticipated.  It was going to be several hours and it turned into several days because, ah well, life, global pandemic, 3 kids at home, running a small business. Well, we’ll just go with life.

The breadsticks were great.  Very tasty and flavorful.  However, they are time consuming, and as I mentioned I like simple.  So after 4 breadsticks I switched to a pizza crust.  Just as flavorful and reminded my husband and I of our college days but oh so much more simple.

Pizza a al Pisanello’s in Bowling Green, Ohio

  • Preheat oven to 425
  • Roll out dough into a rectangle. I had enough to fill a 1/2 sheet pan. Use a fork to poke holes in it.
  • Par-bake for 10-11 min.  This means to give it a head start, cooking it almost all the way, but not quite.
  • Add olive oil
  • garlic seasoning
  • grilled chicken
  • broccoli
  • fresh mozzarella (and other cheese you might have in the fridge)

Bake for 10-14 min until the cheese is melted and everything looks done
