GF & DF Frypan Pizza

I have been making frypan pizza for years, using a recipe from the book that came with my electric frypan.  Ever since my husband has been gluten free I have been making a gluten & dairy free version of the pizza.  I think after much trial and error, sometimes getting it right and not being able to replicate it; I think I finally have the recipe just about right.  This recipe works well for my 26cm round frypan that I use on the stove.

Not my pizza but gives you an idea of what a frypan pizza is like.

GF & DF Frypan Pizza

  • Servings: 2
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 1 cup GF flour
  • 2tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • sprinkle salt
  • 40g butter
  • 1/3 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • extra oil for brushing pan
  • tom paste or pizza sauce
  • preferred toppings
  • dairy free cheese


  1. Combine flour, baking powder, xanthan gum  and salt.  Rub in butter until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  2.  Add in milk and oil, mix to form a soft dough.  Add more flour or liquid if necessary, so that the dough can easily be spread on the pan.
  3. Press dough into lightly oiled 26cm  cold frypan.
  4. Spread with tomato paste or pizza sauce
  5. Top with preferred toppings.  Sprinkle with grated cheese.  Cover frypan.
  6. Heat frypan on medium heat for about 8-1o minutes or until base is golden & the cheese is melted.


Alternatively:  Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until combined into a soft dough, then proceed from step 3.

I use Bio cheese (which is a coconut cheese that melts well and tastes like cheese).

Our preferred toppings are GF ham, GF salami sticks, tinned pineapple, pizza topper herbs and cheese.  We also like adding cooked chicken if we have any.  It is fairly basic but I then add things like mushroom, capsicum & avocado to mine after it is cooked or serve it with a salad.

Have Fun, Work Hard, I Love You

Recently I watched an interview with Tim Elmore  (on the D6 Days Online Conference).  First of all he was talking to parents of athletes but he also gave a lot of great general parenting advice.

He gave advice on what to say before and after watching your children play sports.  I had heard the what to say after the game previously – “I love to watch you play”.  This is great advice and something to remember for after watching your children perform whether on the sporting field, or a music performance, or at debating, etc.  Tim suggested that before the game you say “Have fun.  Play hard.  I love you.”  For more about this you can read an article from Tim Elmore here.

It struck me that this is not only relevant before a performance but a version of this could be said every time we drop our kids somewhere.  I was particularly thinking about before we send them to school.  So often it is a rush in the morning and I can be giving last minute instructions in the car or making sure my son knows how he is getting home in the afternoon.  However if I simply say something like “Have fun. Work hard.  Love you, mate.” as I drop my son at school or the bus stop I’m sure it will boost him emotionally as he starts the day.  When my kids go out I often do say “Have fun” or “Have a good day” but I think adding the other parts could be beneficial.

What do  you think?

Do you say anything special to your children when they leave for school or other activities?
