Tapioca (Gluten free) Pizza Crust Fast2eat

This 3 ingredient-gluten-free pizza crust is the best. It’s Fast & easy to make, without having to get out a food processor and does not require a yeast dough, where we need to wait for more than 1 hour to eat. This recipe also does not use cauliflower or any vegetables.

  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbsp Milk
  • 7 tbsp Tapioca starch


  • In a small small bowl add the whole egg and milk, and Whisk until well combined.
  • Then add in the Tapioca flour and continue mixing until smooth.
  • The dough should be liquid.
  • Preheat a lightly oiled (with Cooking Spray) Non-stick Frying Pan. Pour the dough and cook over low heat.
  • Light Brown on both sides.
  • Preheat oven to 450 F (230 C). When the crust is done you can top with your favourite sauce and toppings*.
  • Bake the pizza for roughly 5-10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
    I prefer to use the Counter-top Oven than the big stove one. It’s time and energy saver.

Tapioca flour is extremely common flour for gluten-free cooking and one that I’ve used in many other recipes. For that matter, tapioca flour is sometimes considered to be the best performing gluten-free flour out there. It’s really smooth, soft flour that feels much like cornstarch. It’s made from the ground roots of the cassava (also called yuca) plant and it’s gluten free for those of you that care about that. It is actually a type of starch, rather than what we would typically consider to be "flour". As a starch, tapioca flour tends to be extremely low in nutrients. But, it is also low in calories and has no sugar or gluten, which are all key advantages. In terms of flavour, tapioca tends to be mild, with a slightly sweet taste. This makes it a good complement to many different types of food and is another reason why you find tapioca flour used over and over again in recipes. The low calorie count also makes this an especially good flour for people who are trying to lose weight or simply decrease their calorie intake.
Tapioca Starch/Flour is actually easier to find than you might think. You can find Tapioca Starch/Flour on Amazon, for a relatively good price – or, check the gluten free isle of your well stocked local grocer. You can also find tapioca flour at Asian and Latin American markets as it’s used in a lot of their cooking, and also at health food stores and places like Whole Foods where you can find a good selection of wheat flour alternatives.

Hi! Easy recipe and pretty good pizza. I didn’t brown the crust enough in the pan for a crisper thin crust. Next time I will! Thanks!

Hello Gregory,
I really appreciate your comment.
I am glad you liked it. I also love it. It’s almost a family tradition for the weekends here. Simple Fast gluten-free and delicious.
If you don’t brown it, the tapioca texture will be a bit “gooey”. I like this “gooey” texture, but some people will think this is kind of weird.
