  • 3. Cup Gluten free all-purpose baking flour
  • 1/2 Cup Flaxseed Meal
  • 1/4 Cup Arrowroot Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Potato Starch
  • 2 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Yeast
  • 3 1/2 Cups Warm Water
  • 1/4 Cup Olive oil


  1. In a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, add the yeast to all the dry ingredients. Mix slightly. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the liquid and the oil. When all the liquid is absorbed, let the mixer run for another minute. When the dough has come together, place in a bowl and cover with a towel. Let the dough rise for 2 - 5 hours overnight. It will not double in size like the gluten breads will.

    Next, lightly flour a piece of parchment paper. Cover with a towel and let rise for another hour.

    While the dough is rising, turn your oven on to 450 degrees and heat a pizza stone for 45 minutes. When ready to put the bread in the oven, add a broiler tray filled with a couple inches of water in the bottom of the oven.

    Slide the parchment paper with the dough on to the pizza stone. Cook for 45 minutes. Allow the bread to cool a little.

    Serve and enjoy!
