    Bake the crust for 8 to 10 minutes, until it is just beginning to turn golden brown. Remove it from the oven and let it sit for a few minutes until it deflates.

    Top with your favorite gluten-free pizza toppings. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes longer, until the crust becomes golden brown. Serve warm.
