I buy the Arrowhead Mills Gluten Free Pizza Crust. I've found to be great, but it is extreamly sticky. I actaully end up putting baggies on my hands covered in Pam spray so I can actually spread the crust out onto a pan.

There is a frozen pizza dough , Gillians, I believe. It is great to have on hand when everyone else would like a pizza. The key is massive toppings. :)

I like the Kinnikinnick pizza crusts. They are in the frozen foods section.

Though, I'm lucky enough to have a gluten-free baker in the area, so I usually buy our crusts from her. =)

The other day I tried Gluten-Free Pantry's French Bread/Pizza Crust and made a 10 or 12 inch pizza.....it was AWESOME!!! I just topped with Prego 3 Cheese & mozzerella cheese. DS said it tasted like pizza hut. I think that the only thing I would change is that I would add some italian seasoning and parm cheese to the crust mix. :)

I have found Kinnickkinick's(sp?) to be pretty good... definitely not bubbly and chewy like traditional pizza crust due to the lack of gluten... but... with the right toppings... still pretty tasty!

I am using a recipe that I think I got from this site that has bean flour and unflavored gelatin in it. I think it is really good; I usually make it with chicken and honey flavored barbecue sauce.

Found the recipe: (I like it enough that I've stopped looking for anything better. :)

1 T gluten-free dry yeast

2/3 cup garbanzo bean flour

1/2 cup tapioca flour

2 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp unflavored gelatin powder

1 tsp Italian herb seasoning

2/3 cup warm water (105 degrees)

1/2 tsp sugar or 1/4 tsp honey

1 tsp olive oil

1 tsp cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In medium mixer bowl using regular beaters (not dough hooks), blend the yeast, flours, xanthan gum, salt, gelatin powder, and Italian herb seasoning on low speed. Add warm water, sugar (or honey), olive oil, and vinegar. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. (If the mixer bounces around the bowl, the dough is too stiff. Add water, if necessary, one tablespoon at a time, until dough does not resist beaters.) The dough will resemble soft bread dough. (You may also mix it in a bread machine on dough setting.) Put mixture into greased 12-inch pizza pan, using buttered hands. Make edges slightly higher to contain toppings.

Bake the pizza crust for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Spread pizza crust with sauce and toppings. Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until top is nicely browned.

Another vote for Kinnikinnick. I had it for the first time last night and it was fantastic!
