Soaked Gluten Free Pizza Crust

In my family’s opinion, you can never eat too much pizza.

We have been known to enjoy it many different ways: thick, thin, personal panwhole wheat (I don’t enjoy this one!), grain-free“almost” real… but this was my first attempt at a soaked crust.

Why soaked, you may ask? I may tell you.

All grains contain a certain amount of a little enzyme inhibitor call phytic acid. This basically makes it so that you can never fully digest the grains you eat, leaving them floating around in your gut, slowly tearing up your intestinal lining.

Sounds fun, right? Not so much. 

But after just 7 hours of soaking, the phytic acid in most grains is significantly reduced, making them more easily digested, as well as releasing more of the grain’s nutrients and upping its vitamin content.

So, in this family, we try to soak our grains as much as possible. Especially oats. They happen to be some of the hardest grains to digest!

  1. 2 c. gluten-free oats
  2. 2 c. buckwheat groats
  3. 1 c. water kefir (learn how to make it here)
  4. 1 c. water
  5. 1/4 c. olive oil (or coconut oil)
  6. 1 t. salt
  7. 1 t. baking soda
  1. Place oats and buckwheat in blender and pulse until ground. Pour into large ceramic or glass bowl (don't use metal!) and add remaining ingredients except the baking soda. Cover with plastic wrap and set on the counter for at least 7 hours. When the dough has sufficiently soaked, preheat oven to 425° and grease two cookie sheets or circular pizza pans. Stir in the baking soda and scoop one half of the dough onto each prepared pan. Using plastic wrap or well greased hands, evenly spread dough to edges of the pans. This will make two thin crusts. If you enjoy thicker crusted pizzas, you might want to make just 1 1/2 pizzas. Top with desired sauces, meats, veggies, cheeses, etc., and bake for 12 minutes. Enjoy!
