The Best Gluten Free Pizza Crust

What you need: 

1 cup sorghum flour
3/4-1 cup gluten free oat flour (can blend whole oats to make flour)
1/2 cup potato starch
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon yeast
garlic powder, to taste, optional
Italian herbs, to taste, optional
3 tablespoons ground flax (I used golden)
4 tablespoons water
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/2 cups warm water
1/2 cup warm nondairy milk (I use soy)
corn meal, as needed

What you do: 

1. Mix first 6 ingredients in bowl (through yeast). Add garlic and herbs, if using; set aside. In another bowl, mix flax with the 4 tablespoons water.
2. Add oil, agave, lemon juice, warm water, and milk. Preheat oven to 410 degrees F. Pour wet ingredients in bread machine. Add dry ingredients.
3. Set on pasta/dough setting. Sprinkle pizza stone with corn meal. When done, place on prepared pizza stone. Spread over pizza stone. (it looks more like thick muffin batter)
4. Bake for 20 minutes, or until close to done. Add toppings, put back in oven for 15-20 minutes, until done.

Good recipe!  I tried this for the first time today and we really enjoyed having pizza again.  It was really funny, though, when I took it out of the oven after 20 min. it was all puffed up very big.  After it cooled a little it fell down.  I cut a few holes in it and put it back in the oven for 5 more minutes, but should have made it 8min.  It was a little doughy.  After i put the toppings on, I cooked it 15 min.  The Daiya vegan cheese was melted nicely and the mushrooms were done perfect.  I plan to post photos soon.  I didn't have a stone so I just used a pizza pan and coated it with corn meal.  Perfect.  Thanks for the great recipe!
