- 5 Gluten-free Pizza Without Yeast
This Gluten-free Pizza recipe is very unique where the pizza base is made with the batter and not with the dough! It's an easy, healthy and tastier version of regular pizza.
I have made this with Barnyard millet (Sama rice) which means you can have it during fasts too just by omitting onions. And the best part is that it is gluten-free!
If you to make it vegan, then use the sauce and toppings as in this Vegan Pizza
Gluten-free Millet Pizza At my Place
In my hunt for millet recipes, I came across this recipe and found it unique as well good. Something worth giving a try. So, just went ahead with minor tweaks here and there in the original recipe. I used the Barnyard millet. I tried it with other millets too but Barnyard millet gives the best result! so, I would recommend that only.
The method of making this recipe is very unique. The pizza base is made with a batter, unlike dough in the usual cases. I have taken this recipe from here but have tweaked it a lot. Like, I neither used all-purpose flour or baking soda as mentioned in that recipe. This is because I wanted to make it gluten-free and without using any chemicals. It was a trial. And if I tell you frankly, while making this for dinner I had kept a second option ready as I was too unsure of the outcome. But believe me, it was liked so much by everyone that, that second option got its due the next day only.
I had my inhibitions while trying it. But will share just one line that would say all, my son commented that I should make it regularly and that it was too good.
The Best thing about this Pizza, apart from being easy to make is that it is very light to eat. There is no feeling of heaviness after eating it.

How To Make Gluten-free Pizza Without Yeast
- For making this pizza, use any millet. Like I used Barnyard millet.
- Soak it for a minimum of 4 hours, though more the better.
- After that grind into a fine paste.
- Thereafter, make pancakes with this batter.
- These pancakes will be the pizza base.
- Now, don't jump to conclusions after reading this line. You need to give it a try to believe me. You can make this pancake, a thicker one or a very thin one, if willing to have thin crust Pizza.
- Using this pancake as the pizza base, apply pizza sauce, cheese and veggies and bake in the oven. Seriously, the taste is too good!
Step By Step Recipe
- Rinse Barnyard millet in water by changing water several times till you get clean water. Soak it for at least 4 hours.
- Once soaked well, drain all the water and grind it to a fine paste.
- Mix tapioca flour in this batter. Add salt.
Tip: If you do not have tapioca flour, then grind Sago pearls (Sabudana) finely and use it.
- Make the batter of flowing consistency, just like the Dosa batter.
- Heat a skillet. Grease it lightly, pour a ladle full of the batter. Drizzle little oil all around and cook on medium flame. One side remains white like this only, but it's fine. It's not uncooked.
- After about a minute or so, flip it and cook it lightly from the other side too. Cook it very lightly as it will be getting cooked in the oven too.
- Once lightly cooked from both the sides, keep it on a wire rack.
- Cook all the pancakes like this.
- This pancake is to be used as the pizza base.
- So, preheat your oven at 200 degrees for 10 minutes.
- Take one pancake or say pizza base.
- Apply pizza sauce. Put cheese and veggies.
- Cook it in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes till cheese melts.
- Serve with love, juice optional.
