Yes, this Instant Pizza base uses just 6 ingredients including salt and water. No oven or fancy equipment is needed. So what are the Ingredients used?

Ingredients used in Instant Gluten-Free Millet Pizza

Millet Flour

I make this gluten-free pizza with different millet flours. I like to use barnyard, ragi flour, and jowar flour. I also use buckwheat, water chestnut, or quinoa flour to make this pizza. However the last there are not millets but grains. 

If you like to try this Barley Flour Vegetarian Pizza, which uses another healthy flour and now whole wheat. However, this barley flour pizza is not gluten-free.

Pumpkin or Sweet Potato Puree

I have used pumpkin puree in this recipe. This is for binding the dough as it is difficult to bind the gluten-free flour. It also adds a nice crunch to the base. Typically potato flour or starch is added to gluten-free breads, here I am adding the potato or pumpkin puree directly. One can use normal mashed potato too.

How to make Pumpkin Puree

I know pumpkin is not in season currently but I had a batch of pumpkin puree stored in the refrigerator from my fresh garden harvest. If you want to check how to make and store pumpkin pure, check this post

Baking Powder

I have used this to give it a little rise and also for the base to get crisp. Be sure to use 100 percent certified gluten-free baking powder.

Other Ingredients

Salt is used for flavoring, and water to make the dough. Oil is used for greasing the dough and cooking the base.

Is this Gluten-free Millet flour pizza Vegan?

The base is vegan and hence it makes it a Gluten-Free and Vegan Pizza. The whole pizza is not as I have used cheese.

    ½ Cup Pumpkin Puree
  • Slowly add the water and make a semi-stiff dough.

  • One can roll it without the parchment paper directly on a rolling board.
  • If required use a cookie cutter or a round disc to shape the pizza base.
  • Cooking of pizza base
  • Heat a cast iron pan or a nonstick pan.
  • Let it get warm.
  • Once warm, grease the pan with oil.
  • Now gently add the base to the pan.
  • Cook the base on a slow to medium stove.
  • Once it appears slightly dry from the top, brush a little oil.
    2-3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Flip and cook on the other side, by applying some oil.
    2-3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Cook on both the sides until they are 90 percent done.

Assembling pizza

  • Once the base is 90 percent done, spread the base with pizza sauce.
    4-5 tablespoon Pizza sauce
  • Top it with veggies of choice and cheese.
    ½ cup Cheese, Vegetables
  • Cover and cook on a slow stove until the cheese melts and the base is crispy.
