If you’re a fan of McDonald’s Big Macs (or have always wondered what one tastes like) this gluten free Big Mac pizza is the pizza for you. With a copycat Big Mac sauce, beef mince and lettuce, this pizza tastes exactly like a Big Mac! Prior to being diagnosed as Coeliac early last year (wow it feels weird saying last year – Happy New Year everyone!!) a Big Mac meal was our go to at Mcdonalds and pizza has always been one of our favourite meals. It made sense to figure out a way to combine the two.
Asides from being delicious, and pretty nostalgic to our gluten eating days, this gluten free Big Mac pizza recipe is extremely straightforward and easy to follow. The recipe also consists of ingredients which we would class as staples in our home. Anyway, let’s get to it, introducing to you our gluten free Big Mac pizza recipe.

If you’d like to see exactly how to make the gluten free Big Mac pizza watch the video tutorial above. We always recommend watching the video tutorial at least once prior to attempting this recipe so you can see exactly how the mix should look throughout each step of the process. When you’ve watched the video and are ready to make the gluten free Big Mac pizza the written instructions are below.
- Preheat your oven to 210 degrees Celsius (approximately 410 degrees Fahrenheit).
- Mix the flour, yoghurt, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt together in a bowl with a spatula until the dough can be brought together in a ball. Bring the dough together into a ball and set it aside. Please note, that the dough should not be overly sticky, you should be able to handle it without getting into a mess! If the dough is sticky, add some more flour.
- Dice the onion and pickle into small pieces. Set these aside.
- Mix the ketchup, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, salt and pepper together in a bowl.
- Once mixed add the diced onion and pickle into the sauce. Mix them through and set the sauce aside.
- Prepare a pizza tray, cover it in baking paper and lightly sprinkle it with flour.
- Now go back to the dough ball. Place the dough ball onto the prepared baking paper and sprinkle some flour on top of the dough ball.
- Using a rolling pin roll the dough out into a circular shape. In between rolls I like to use my hands to push along the edges, ensuring the dough maintains a circular shape.
- I like to have a clearly defined crust on my pizza so I then go around the edges of the pizza and fold over the dough slightly.
- When happy with the shape and crust of the pizza, put it into the oven and cook for 10 minutes until the base starts to colour slightly.
- While the pizza base is in the oven cook the mince in a frying pan on the stovetop with a pinch of salt until the mince is fully cooked. When fully cooked turn the heat off and set the mince aside.
- Once the pizza base is out the oven spread the tomato paste onto the base with the back of a spoon.
- Then top with the cheese and mince meat.
- Place the pizza back in the oven until the cheese is fully melted and the pizza is cooked.
- Once cooked take the pizza out of the oven, top it with lettuce and drizzle the Big Mac sauce on top.
- That’s it, the pizza is now ready to serve! Congratulations, you’ve successfully made a gluten free Big Mac pizza.
