Gluten Free Turkey Pizza Crust (Lower Carbs) – Mini or Large

The most flavorful gluten free pizza crust you can imagine that is high in protein and lower in carbs than you expect from a pizza crust. That's what gluten free turkey pizza crust is all about!

Ingredients:

    For a Mini Pizza:
  • 1/4 pound ground turkey (Costco Organic)
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice flour + 1/2 tablespoon for dusting (or gluten free oat, sorghum, or millet flour)
  • 1/16 to 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • Guten free pesto sauce (Classio*)
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (or Follow Your Heart or Daiya for dairy-free), to taste
  • 2-1/2 slices uncured gluten free pepperoni (Columbus), sliced in half

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. On a dinner plate or paper plate, knead together the ground turkey, brown rice flour, garlic powder, and salt. Pat out the mixture into a 6-inch circle. Pat the top with half of the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of flour, flip it over, and pat the other half with the remaining flour. Transfer the patty to a pizza pan or baking sheet.
  3. Bake on the center rack of the oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove crust from the oven and top with your favorite sauce and toppings. Place back in the oven and increase the heat to 450ºF. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove and serve immediately.

Tips

*I don't care for Classico pesto sauce, mostly because it contains no nuts. Most pesto sauce brands contain pinenuts or enough Parmesan cheese. However, Classico makes a good start. I stir in some superfine almond flour and additional Parmesan cheese. Alternatively, you can add some sauce to a food processor. Then add almonds or pine nuts and Parmesan and process until pureed. Continue to add a little of each until it reaches your desired flavor. Add additional olive oil as desired. I enjoy the flavor of almonds more than pine nuts. You add whatever you wish.
