  • 4 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

For pizza crust:

  • 3/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup white rice flour*
  • 1/3 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/3 cup sorghum flour
  • 1 teaspoon xanthum gum
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast, from 1 (1/4-ounce) package
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

For topping:

  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, coarsely grated (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano, finely grated (about 1 tablespoon)
