Gluten Free Pizza Crust

"This is a great pizza crust that you can hold in your hand and bite into, as opposed to most GF crusts that you have to eat with a fork. It has a great consistency and tastes like the real thing. For those not familiar with gluten free baking, this will not have the same consistency as a regular dough while you are making it, but trust me it will cook out just like a regular crust."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Add the water, olive oil and eggs and mix well.

Step 5

Pour the mixture on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and top with another sheet of parchment paper.

Press the dough down and shape into a 14 to 15 inch round trying to maintain the same thickness throughout. (You can do this with your hands or a rolling pin).
