Stevens Ultimate Neapolitan Gluten Free Pizza Crust is crispy and perfect for any toppings. It’s one of those recipes that you will go back to over and over again because it’s just *that* good (and crowd pleasing!)
Everyone loves pizza right? My family certainly does! At least one day a week, I always need a last minute meal plan where I don’t have to rush to the grocery store but can still produce something filling that will make everyone happy. This pizza crust fits the bill. Pull the crust out of the refrigerator, let it rise, bake it and boom – you have a great meal. Bonus: If you’re making the dough from scratch, all of the ingredients are items you can pull out of your pantry!
What Makes This Recipe Different?
It is crispy and yeasty and will fool even the biggest gluten free skeptics. If you have tried before, then you know it is DIFFICULT to get crispy and yeasty dough for a gluten free crust. After a LOT of messing around I have finally found the ultimate recipe. The biggest finding in this entire experiment though, is to have a piping hot oven and a pizza stone/unsealed ceramic tile. You get the pizza stone/ceramic tile hot while the oven is preheating, then precook the crust on the hot stone/tile. Take the semi-cooked crust out, add ingredients, and continue cooking until everything is melty. This creates a no-fail strategy to ensure crispy and delicious crust every time. You’re welcome.
Can You Make This Crispy Crust Ahead of Time?
YES! You can keep this ultimate gluten free dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Pull out the amount that you need, let it rise and continue with the instructions from there.

Tips and Tricks for Stevens Ultimate Gluten Free Pizza Crust
- THIS RECIPE CALLS FOR AN OVERNIGHT SITTING TIME. This is a great dish to make the night (or week) ahead of time and then pull out to rise and bake when you’re ready to eat it.
- Use a pizza stone or ceramic tile! If you go the ceramic tile route, make sure it isn’t sealed. The seal can contain lead! We like this pizza stone here. The reason why you use a pizza stone, is it heats up with the oven and allows the crust to start cooking immediately. This helps to ensure a crispy crust over and over.
- If you enjoy a little spice, add some hot sauce to your red sauce. YUM – it adds spice without over-doing it. SO GOOD.
- Store this dough in an airtight container for up to two weeks for super easy meal ease!
- Keep it lite! You don’t need a plethora of ingredients on your pizza, I usually brush my sauces on and while I’m not stingy with cheese, I use it in moderation. High heat will cook and or melt ingredients rather quickly, too much cheese will quickly melt and run off.
