What is gluten free pizza crust made of?

Namaste Foods Perfect Flour Blend is made of sweet brown rice flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot powder, sorghum flour, and xanthan gum. I always use Namaste Perfect Flour Blend when making gluten free pizza crust from scratch! Brown rice flour adds a little bit of a nutty flavor, making it taste a little more like traditional dough. The Namaste flour blend creates a consistently good pizza dough every time!
Is gluten free pizza crust healthier than regular crust?
If you’re a person living with diabetes, a gluten free pizza crust may be a better option compared to a traditional pizza crust. But, not because of the gluten.
