At my son’s birthday party this year, one of his friends had a gluten allergy. My son and this friend┬áhit it off the minute they met and go back and forth across the street to each other’s houses the minute they get home from school each day. I love making sure that I have a few snacks on hand for his friend, including some better snacks like meals. Because boys at this age are always eating and if they get creating or making something, stopping to eat has to happen…now. So I always make sure that I have something more substantial on hand for both of them.

This gluten free personal pan pizza has received a stamp of approval from both boys. This recipe made three so I usually freeze them and take them out when needed. Since I’ve already cooked them, I just place them in the microwave and they are ready in a minute or two. Perfect amount of time to make a meal for growing boys.

Gluten Free Personal Pan Pizza


  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 cups tapioca flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, water, yeast and vinegar. Stir until mixed well and then set aside to proof the yeast.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form on medium speed. (This will take several minutes).
  3. While the eggs are mixing in another bowl stir together the tapioca flour, brown rice flour, xanthum gum, salt and baking powder.
  4. Turn the mixer to low and stir in the yeast mixture. Slowly add in the flour mixture and continue mixing on low until combined. Turn the mixer to medium and stir an additional one minute.
  5. Note: The dough will not form a ball like traditional bread dough but will be more of a thick batter. You may also need to use the whisk attachment to get the egg whites to stiffen and then switch to the beater attachment or bread dough hook to stir the dough.
  6. Lightly grease two to three 8 to 9 inch cake pans with two tablespoons of oil (in each pan). Divide the dough into two to three equal portions and press dough into the pan. (Yes, it will be difficult. You can use a rolling pin to roll it out alittle bit first on the counter before placing it in the pan and pressing it to fit the remainder of the pan).
  7. Allow the dough to rise for 45 minutes, then bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. (The dough will not be cooked). Remove from oven, top with toppings and bake at 350 degrees for an additional 20-25 minutes or until dough is cooked in the center and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  8. Serve immediately or allow pizza to cool, place in an airtight Ziploc container and freeze. To reheat, microwave for 1-2 minutes.
