A simple Gluten Free Pizza Base using rice as the base.
I'm so happy to be back with my Sunday Supper crew this week. I've been absent for about 3 or 4 weeks now. So I was thrilled to be able to participate and join my peeps this week.
Our theme this week is "free for all" which had us pick dishes that were free from something specific to our diets. I thought this was a cool idea. While I'm not eating completely gluten-free, I do dabble with recipes. I'm gluten sensitive but don't have celiac. I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome which flares up on occasion, usually when I'm trying to do some travelling or get to see a flick. Never fails I swear.
When I think of going gluten-free completely I get wickedly bummed thinking I'd have to give up pizza. It's so cool to know that's not necessary. You can still eat pizza when you follow a GF diet. There's GF flours on the market now. I'm hoping to pick up some flour next time I shop state-side. In the meantime I thought I'd whip up a rice crust pizza. I always have leftover rice in the house. I make stir fry quite often so when I do I always make extra rice. That way I have leftover rice for dishes like this. You can use any GF rice you have in the house. Most are, but make sure yours doesn't contain anything that breaks the rules before you make this.
It's simple to make and tastes great. A nice, healthy GF option for people. I hope you enjoy it.

Gluten Free Pizza with a Rice Base
For the Base:
- 3 cups cooked rice make sure it's gluten free
- 2 eggs slightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon butter
- ½ cup shredded cheese like mozzarella
- Salt and Pepper to taste
For the Toppings:
- ¼ cup Pizza Sauce ensure it's gluten free
- 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese shredded
- ¼ cup green peppers
- ¼ red onions sliced thinly
- ¼ cup white onions sliced thinly
- 1 garlic clove sliced thinly
- Parsley to taste
For the Base:
- Heat up your leftover rice, you need 3 cups.
- In a large bowl mix your rice, eggs, butter, shredded cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well until it comes together into a smooth mixture.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Scoop the mixture into 4 piles on the cookie sheet. Use a spoon (or your hands) to shape the piles into circles of equal size, and width. Make sure you press it together tightly. Smooth the edges.
- Place in a preheated 450 degree oven and cook for 7 to 8 minutes.
Putting it all together:
- Remove the crusts from the oven.
- Top them with the sauce.
- Top with cheese.
- Top with whatever optional toppings you desire. I did one with plain cheese. One with only green peppers. One with red and white onions and garlic. And one with everything.
- Place back in the oven for another 5 to 7 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and place on plates.
- Serve with a big old GF smile!
