Gluten-Free Pizza Crust — Batter Version: If there is one gluten-free recipe nearly everyone can appreciate, it is a great tasting pizza crust.
This gluten free pizza crust is created using a batter-type approach. It's very simple to make, and is created in a cast iron fry pan (or similar) on the stovetop and in the oven. This is a softer variety crust, though it has ample crispness around the edges and surface.

Heat oven to 400°.
Add one tablespoon olive oil to each 8" cast iron skillet. Heat skillets on stovetop.
Split the batter between two heated 8" cast iron skillets. Cook on low heat until bubbles start to form on top of dough.
