Preheat oven to 220°C.

Mix all the ingredients for the pizza base together. Use electric beaters on the slowest speed to blend. Continue beating slowly for three minutes. Add a little more water if the dough is too stiff.

Grease a baking sheet or pizza pan. Sprinkle rice flour over the dough and press into the baking sheet from the centre outwards. Keep sprinkling with rice flour to prevent sticking. Fold the edges over slightly to form a rim. Bake for 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven, spread with a thin layer of tomato paste and scatter over your toppings. Sprinkle with cheese and return to the oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
