The bakers at Wholly Wholesome opted not to bother with traditional pizza dough. Instead, their first foray into Italian pies is certified gluten-free. In fact, Wholly Wholesome Gluten-Free Pizza Dough is vegan and “Produced in a Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Egg, Soy, Nut & Casein Free Environment”.
We actually love my homemade gluten-free, dairy-free pizza crust recipe, so I have high standards for the store-bought versions. That said, Wholly Wholesome definitely delivered on flavor. We had three taste-testers and all agreed: scrumptious!
Wholly Wholesome Gluten-Free Pizza Dough and Crust are One in the Same
But like with the gluten-free pie shells, there were a couple of baking caveats. I followed the directions to top and then bake. It yielded a very under-cooked crust, even with a few extra minutes of baking time. I definitely recommend pre-baking the pizza dough, at least for 5 minutes. The parts that were exposed didn’t rise at all. If you roll it thin, expect it to stay that thin – though it may rise a touch more if pre-baked.
That said, it might be worth just picking up a Wholly Wholesome Gluten-Free Pizza Crust, which is their pizza dough pre-baked for you.

Great taste, rise and bake could be better
The taste is delicious, but we bought the dough, and it just didn’t want to rise or bake through properly. I think I would try the pre-baked pizza crust if I need a gluten-free pizza crust again.
