Crispy and Chewy Rice Flour Pizza for Vegetarians

Crispy and Chewy Rice Flour Pizza for Vegetarians

This is a delicious yeast-free pizza crust made with sweet rice flour, giving it a crispy yet chewy texture.
I made it with vegetarian toppings but feel free to change them if you like.

Ingredients: one 20 cm pizza

Pizza Crust
Rice flour
75 g
Baking powder (aluminium-free if possible)
1/2 teaspoon
Beet sugar, etc.
1 teaspoon
a pinch
Olive oil
1/2 tablespoon
50 ml
Pizza sauce (Recipe ID: 1261037)
4-5 tablespoons
Sake Lees Cheese Slices (Recipe ID: 1214930)
2 slices
Corn kernels
3-4 tablespoons


1. Mix all of the pizza crust ingredients together well and gather the dough into a ball. Knead and then roll out into a circle on top of a baking tray lined with baking paper.
2. Add the pizza sauce, the sake lees cheese and the corn kernels onto the pizza in that order and bake for 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 220°C.
3. How to make the pizza sauce: Heat up 1 tablespoon of oilve oil and 2 finely chopped cloves of garlic until they become fragrant in a frying pan. Finely chop an onion and add it in. Stir fry the onion.
4. Next: Add 400 g of the tinned chopped tomatoes to the pan and simmer for 15 minutes on a low heat. Add 1 teaspoon of dried basil and 1 teaspoon of dried oregano. Add 1 tablespoon beet sugar to finish.
5. If you heat up tofu mayonnaise (Recipe ID: 1229507), it becomes like cheese! Nut cheese (Recipe ID: 1261856) has a sweet flavor and is delicious.
6. Sake lees cheese melts quite easily so best to spread it on thickly when using it for pizza. This is a picture of sake lees cheese and nut cheese on toast.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to try making a vegetarian pizza with sake lees cheese. It won't upset your stomach no matter how much you eat.
This recipe is also good for those with egg, dairy, and wheat allergies as the pizza contains none of these ingredients.
