Easy Gluten Free Pizza Dough Balls

Easy, yummy gluten free pizza dough balls made with a very simple 3 ingredients yoghurt based dough and an even simpler basic no-cook pizza sauce!

If you’ve seen my last post {easy gluten free yoghurt pizza dough}, then this is very much the same, except turned into pizza flavoured dough balls instead!

I’ve tried my hand at all kinds of different pizza doughs since being gluten free. From long winded and complicated to super simple ones, some great and not so great, but I’m obsessed with this yoghurt based recipe now! I’ve already made it a couple of times in just the last few days alone. lol I don’t want to repeat everything I said in my previous post about it, but it’s basically such a quick and simple recipe to make, the dough is easy to handle and the result has a great texture and taste.

It’s also quite versatile and I can’t wait to incorporate the idea in different types of dough as well as playing around with it to see what ‘posher’ versions of pizza dough I can come up with.

But for now, here it goes in the form easy gluten free pizza dough balls! 🙂

Easy gluten free pizza dough balls

Difficulty level: easy

Preparation time: 5-10 mins (to make the dough)

Cooking time: 10-12 mins

Temperature: 200C (392F)

Ingredients

For the dough:

  • 150g (1 cup) gluten free self-raising flour (I used Doves Farm)
  • 145g (a bit less than 2/3 cup) plain Greek style yoghurt
  • 1 Tbsp (15ml) olive oil
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

Toppings:

  • Basic no-cook pizza sauce {recipe here}
  • Extra mature cheddar
  • Mozzarella (the semi-hard/low moisture kind that is often sold already grated)

Yields about 6 gluten free pizza dough balls.

Note: strained yoghurt (known as Greek style yoghurt) is a thicker kind of yoghurt and worked perfectly for this recipe. If using a more liquid/runny type of yoghurt instead, you may want to add a bit more flour than me depending on how the texture turns out.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C (392F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the pizza sauce. I just whip together a quick one with tomato purée, garlic powder, herbs, olive oil and water. {recipe here}
  3. Place all dough ingredients in a bowl and mix well with your hands until you form a ball.Easy 2 ingredients gluten free yoghurt pizza dough making process

    I’m trying the pizza version for the first time right now. Can’t wait to make the pizza pause. They’re kind of like little mini calzones. Thank you for sharing. It’s good to know there are others out there who are also trying to make living gluten-free easier!!!

    • Aww thank you so much, hope you liked it! I spend so much time researching and learning to cook in order to have a diet as ‘normal’ as possible, that I just felt I might as well add my own two cents out there. 🙂
