Quick and easy cornmeal pizza crust

Last night I find myself craving pizza but seeing as I have a wheat intolerance, I couldnt just call up Dominos for delivery. So when I get a pizza craving I have to make my own from scratch, which I normally dont mind, but with my boyfriend is out of town and me cooking for one, I didnt really want to take the time and make a mess just for a slice of pizza. Unfortunately the hankering for a pizza wouldnt go away so I decided to try something different from my typical pizza dough recipe. I put a twist on a traditional sope recipe and the result was the quickest tastiest little cornmeal crust youve ever had.

Quick Cornmeal Pizza Crust


  • 1 cup masa
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbl spn olive oil
  • Salt
  • Italian seasonings (basil, oregano, thyme, garlic, etc)
  • Preheat oven to 425. In a bowl mix the dry ingredients then add the olive oil and slowly add in the water until it is a thick dough consistency (should feel like play dough). Roll the dough into a ball and take a rolling pin* and smooth it to about 1/4 inch thick crush. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet, bush lightly with olive oil and pop into the oven. Allow it to bake until the edges are crispy and the center slightly soft.

    Thats it your done! Top the pizza with whatever you like and pop back in the oven for a few more minutes to cook. Easy huh? All in all it should take about 5 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to cook before youre enjoying a delicious homemade pizza. This recipe will yield enough for one or two personal sized pizzas.

    *bonus tip! If you dont have a rolling pin take a cub and lightly flour it and use that instead!

      Hey there, just wondered if it was difficult to figure out that you had wheat intolerance? I am going through this at the moment, and while tested negative for gluten still think I have a wheat intolerance.

        Well I would definitely talk to your doctor about it and get their opinion. What I did was to eliminate wheat 100% from my diet for about 3 months….I noticed less bloating, stomach pain and fatigue so I just kept up with it. Ive learned since then I can have little amounts of wheat (soy sauce, light fried food, etc) but if I have too much I definitely feel the repercussions.

        Hope that helps!
