Dominos Gluten Free Pizza Crust


In the spring of 2012, Dominos added a gluten-free pizza to their menu to cater to pizza lovers who follow a gluten-free diet. While this particular pizza dough is certified to be gluten-free, minute traces of gluten could be transferred to the pizza dough as there is no “gluten-free designated workspace” in Dominos’ kitchens.[1]. While this should not pose a problem for diners who have mild gluten sensitivity, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness suggests that sufferers of celiac disease use caution while eating this meal at the restaurant. Using this Dominos Gluten Free Pizza Dough recipe in your own kitchen, however, will eliminate the risk of gluten contamination. Sufferers of celiac disease can once again enjoy homemade pizza by using this crust and carefully choosing their toppings.

Dominos Gluten Free Pizza Crust Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups lukewarm water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 ounce (1 packet) active dry yeast[3]
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 4 cups gluten-free flour
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum[4]
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt[5]

Dominos Gluten Free Pizza Crust Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Farhenheit.
  2. Prepare 2 pizza pans or baking sheets by greasing them or lining them with parchment paper to prevent the pizza crust from sticking.
  3. In a small bowl, combine water and sugar and mix until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add yeast and set aside for approximately 10 minutes, until the yeast is foamy. [5]
  4. Slowly add the olive oil and cider vinegar to the yeast mixture and stir.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sea salt, and xanthan gum. Once combined, make a hole in the center of the dry ingredients.
  6. Add the yeast mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until well-combined.
  7. Continue to add flour until the dough is firm enough to be shaped. With a serrated knife, cut the dough in half, making two balls of dough.
  8. On a flat surface that has been liberally floured, roll the dough out to the desired size and place it on a greased pizza pan or cookie sheet.
  9. Place the pizza dough in the oven and bake for 5 minutes or until the dough is firm. [6] Repeat with the second pizza dough.
  10. Once your pizza crust has been “parbaked”, it is either ready for toppings or to be wrapped and frozen for future enjoyment.
  11. Bake your topped pizza for an additional 7-10 minutes, or until the toppings are cooked to your liking.

Comments

  • Xanthan Gum, which is made from fermented corn sugar, is used as a thickener or stabilizer. It helps baked goods and breads stay together. Another stabilizer that can be used in place of Xanthan Gum is Guar Gum, which is derived from beans.[7]
  • Certain flour manufacturers have begun offering “gluten-free” flour. You can purchase gluten-free flour in most grocery stores. You could also create your own gluten-free mixture using a combination of rice flour, tapioca flour, sorghum flour, and amaranth flour.
