Yeast Pizza Crust (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
2 cups white rice flour
1 package Red Star yeast
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 teaspoon sugar
½ -1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Mix dry ingredients. Add water and oil and mix well. Pat onto 13 greased pizza pan. Bake at 425F for 15 - 20 minutes. Remove from oven and top with favorites. Return to oven and bake until done (Microwave variation for freezing: Shape dough into 6 rounds. Cook as above but cook on rack until crusts are browned. Cool, top , & freeze in Ziploc bags. Microwave to reheat toppings & melt cheese.)
