Gluten-free winter veggie pizza uses a surprise ingredient for the crust
Do you have a gluten intolerance or just want a simple recipe for a gluten-free pizza crust? Not only is this crust super-easy, but it's also delicious.
This fun recipe doesn't use a bunch of gluten-free flours to create this crust. Instead I used boiled potatoes that are combined with rice flour and tapioca starch, which yields a perfect pizza crust without that cardboard box taste.
