"This pizza crust is delicious and holds together very nicely. It is not like those gritty, hard gluten free crusts you find in grocery stores. The Prep time includes the rising time."

Fit a stand mixer with the paddle attachment.
Place the milk, water, melted butter, sugar, salt, egg and yeast in the bowl of the stand mixer and mix on low speed for a few seconds until well blended.
Whisk together the remaining ingredients and add to the wet mixture; mix for 5 minutes on low speed (2 on my stand mixer), scraping down the sides after about 2 minutes. (This should have the consistency of a thick muffin batter.)
Coat a 12 to 13 inch pizza pan with butter or bacon fat, spoon the batter onto the pan using a sturdy spatula and spread the batter evenly over the pan right to the edge, then push it a wee bit away from the edge to form a slight lip.
Place in a warm draft free place and allow proofing for 30 minutes.
Top with your favourite sauce and toppings and place in a preheated 350 degree Fahrenheit oven on the middle rack and bake for 30-35 minutes, until bottom of crust is golden brown.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes and remove from pan.
Slice with a pizza cutter.
