Gluten Free Vegan Pizza

My original gluten free vegan pizza recipe is up on Your Zen Life, a brand new website by Phoebe Tonkin and Teresa Palmer! Click here for the recipe :)


  1. Hi Sasha!

    I made your gluten free vegan pizza for my family and everyone loved it! The only question I have is, when the time comes to form the dough into a ball, it was way too crumbly and wouldn't stick together. I ended up adding water and olive oil to make it form into a ball. Do you have any suggestions for this?

    Thanks so much!


    1. Hi Kristen! So glad you guys liked it! Sorry that the dough came out crumbly :(, but nice move with the water and olive oil addition!

      Next time you can try using a stand mixer bowl (instead of mixing manually) to combine dry ingredients. Then add in the olive oil, vinegar, and flax/water mixture. Blend on low until soft ball forms. The dough should be very soft. If it is still crumbly, I would recommend just what you did... slowly adding (spoonfuls at a time) water and a touch of olive oil. Keep stirring until the dough ball can stick together. Use your hands to "mush" it, it may take some time and maneuvering but it will eventually form. I hope this helps!! :)


    2. AND one more option: instead of the flax/water mixture, you can substitute with 1 tablespoon active dry yeast. In a small bowl, stir honey into 1-1/2 cup warm water. Add yeast and stir gently. Set aside for 5 minutes until it starts foaming. Then, continue as normal, combining your dry dough ingredients, and then adding olive oil, vinegar, and the yeast mixture. This dough should come out nicely. Keep me posted :) xoxo!
