These Cheesy Gluten Free Pizza Buns are so quick and easy to make. They’re soft and fluffy just like a regular Pizza Bun. The recipe can be thrown together in under an hour and uses only simple easy to find Gluten Free Ingredients.

One of the reasons that I use rice flour in most of my recipes is because its so inexpensive. You can find it for $1.00 a bag at Asian Supermarkets or in the import sections at Larger Grocery Stores. It’s also very versatile and doesn’t have a weird after taste like a lot of other gluten free flours do.

Some people already have a GF Flour blend that they prefer using or just want to use up. In this case, just replace the rice flour and potato starch with it. Be sure to stir in a little at a time because the measurements may be slightly different. The dough should be as stiff as traditional pizza dough but will break much easier. If it breaks just press the dough back together with your fingers.

I use both traditional and instant yeast together when making gluten free dough. While experimenting with different methods, I tried using both yeasts together and what resulted was the softest, Gluten Free Dough I’ve ever had.  I’ve made it this way ever since and it always turns out amazing. It tastes so good, you’d never know its gluten free.

We like to slice the buns down the center and fill with more pizza sauce and cheddar cheese, then put them in the oven until the cheese melts. They’re seriously addictive.

Note: Rice Flour can vary from brand to brand. I’ve found that measurements can be different depending on the brand you’re using. The Thai brand which has red writing on the bag tends to be ground finer and can take more than the Indian rice flour that I get at Superstore. Both brands work wonderfully but there is a slight difference in the measurements, as I mentioned. Because of this, I like to add the flour a little a time until the consistency is right.

  1. Unfortunately I am allergic to the ascorbic acid in instant yeast. I wonder if I skipped the instant yeast but added a teaspoon of vinegar if that might work? Can’t hurt to try! Your recipes look great!
