How to Make Homemade Pizza (Top 8 Free)

Disclaimer: I was offered Namaste Foods products in exchange for my honest review. 

Nearly everyone loves pizza (except my cousin’s daughter. smh.). If you have dietary restrictions, it can be hard to find pizza you can order. Even if you can find a gluten-free crust, some people have to worry about ingredients such as dairy or soy. Pre-made crusts tend to contain either gluten and/or soy. Luckily, there’s a company that’s got you back when it comes to homemade pizza. Namaste Foods offers a variety of foods that are free of the Top 8 allergens. What are those allergens? Gluten, dairy, soy, wheat, potato, peanuts, tree nuts, & casein. Namaste Foods is certified gluten-free and Kosher. Most of their products have also been approved through both the Non-GMO Project and Whole Grain Council. Another really cool note: this brand is family-owned and women-operated. Yaaaaaas.

If you’ve never made your own homemade pizza crust before, you might think it’ll be a little daunting. Not so (at least in this experience; it was our first time making crust ourselves)! Namaste Pizza Crust Mix makes it super easy to make homemade pizza. Upon opening the bag, you’ll be greeted by a delicious aroma of spices and herbs.

Homemade pizza (Top 8 allergen free) is easy to make with Namaste Pizza Crust Mix. Click To Tweet


1 tsp oil

1 1/4 c water

1 1/2 cups of Namaste Pizza Crust Mix

Pizza or Tomato sauce (or whichever sauce you desire)

Dairy-free shredded cheese

Topping(s) of choice


Heat oven to 450 degrees F.

Spray pizza pan with non-stick spray.

Combine 1 1/2 c pizza crust mix with 1 1/4 c water and 1 tsp oil.

Beat with electric mixer for 3 minutes. Note: batter will be similar to cake batter consistency.

Scrape batter onto pizza pan  and spread with spatula.

Pro tip #1: It is *very* important to spread batter at least 14″ and no more than 1/4″ thick. Use less batter if necessary.

Bake for approximately 20 minutes on lowest rack.

Pro tip #2: For a crispier crust, flip crust over after initial 20 minutes for an additional 20 minutes.

Pull crust out and apply sauce and toppings.

Bake additional 10-15 minutes.

Let cool and serve. Then, you’re ready to devour like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

Pro tip #3: If pizza crust is soggy, place pizza on a cooling rack for 4 minutes.

  1. I have never heard of Namaste Pizza Crust Mix. The way you made the pizza look pretty simple and doesnt consume that much of hassle. It looks delicious with so many good ingredient.

  2. Isn’t that just so cool and I love the name of the product. Have you tried using the pizza dough in a wood burning oven Sam? We have one of those fancy Spanish Chiminea’s that we always use to make our pizzas (the hubby is fussy about his crust, he likes it to taste woody 😀 )

    • I love the name of the company too! I haven’t tried making it myself that way, but I’ve been to a few restaurants that use a wood burning oven. I haven’t used a Spanish Chiminea before, but that sounds great! 🙂

  3. I love making my own pizza, especially when there is a wooden oven around, so that I can bake it the traditional Italian way. I didn’t try the gluten-free mix for the base before but it sounds like a great option for people with dietary restrictions.

  4. I’m a pizza obsessor! I’ll eat it even if it makes me ill.. which I gotta stop doing, this looks like the perfect alternative! I once made a pizza with a cauliflower base…er… It was interesting. Not very pizza-ry 🙁

  5. I’m working on cutting carbs this year but glad to know that this is gluten-free pizza! It looks incredibly delicious and perfect homemade healthy treat for the entire family!

  6. This homemade pizza looks delightful and tasty. My kids will totally love this for sure. Will try this recipe for our family movie night.

  7. I’m very thankful i don’t have a problem with Gluten, however I do think it is really cool that bloggers like you are spreading the word on those that are unable to eat gluten are still able to enjoy their favorite foods.

  8. The pizza looks so delicious. The recipe sounds good along with the step-wise pictures. I am definitely going to try this on the weekend, what could be better than homemade pizza!

  9. We love pizza at home! As we are Italian, I prepare home made pizza at least twice per month, but it is not like this one.It is great to know there are options for people with diet restrictions!

  10. I hope I can make my own pizza at home next time too… I can’t do that now because I don’t have a baking oven. And my mum doesn’t like pizza (i love them though~)
