20 Best Gluten-Free Pizza Recipes

When it comes to pizza, people have varying preferences. There are those who like thin crusts or thick crusts, lots of toppings or minimal toppings, tomato sauce or pesto sauce, condiments for dipping like mayo or ketchup, and much more in between. The beauty of pizza is that it’s so customizable and family-friendly – and you can never have too many gluten-free pizza recipes to make everyone happy!

At the Academy of Culinary Nutrition we like to keep our pizza gluten-free and dairy-free, as well as experiment with alternative crusts made from root vegetables, cauliflower, potatoes and winter squashes. Pizza traditionalists may recoil in horror at these crusts, but you’ll never know how delicious they are until you try them – and they allow you to enhance your pizza with nutrition.

You might be wondering how to possibly make a delicious pizza without cheese. We either opt for pizzas that are cheese-less or, if that just won’t do, try one of these 22 Best Dairy-Free Cheese Recipes. As for toppings, vegetables or meat are classics but remember you can also add sliced pears, pineapple, tempeh, or nuts and seeds.

There are heaps of crust, sauce and topping combinations you can try – get started off with these gluten-free pizza recipes.
