Gluten Free Fry Bread/Tortillas

Adapted from


  • 2 c. Gluten-free all purpose flour (or 2 c. White rice flour)
  • 2 tsp. Xanthan gum or Guar gum
  • 1 tsp. Gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 c. Warm water



  1. Add the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix the ingredients thoroughly.
  2. Add the cup of warm water to the bowl and mix the dry ingredients into the water by hand until its an even mixture.
  3. Separate the dough into 8 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Place all but one of the dough balls back into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap until you’re ready to work with them.
  4. Sprinkle a clean, flat surface with a bit of GF flour and then roll your dough ball into a roughly circular shape and get as thin as possible.  I like to cut mine out with a large cup or bowl to get a perfect circle.  You can also break out the cookie cutters and get some really fun shapes!
  5. Throw the bread/tortilla onto a hot griddle (I use a cast iron griddle on medium heat with just a smidge of sunflower oil) and let it cook approximately 1-2 minutes or until it has started puffing up and the bottom side is developing those lovely brown spots. Flip the  bread/tortilla and cook the other side until is toasty as well.
  6. Slide the cooked bread/tortilla onto a covered plate to stay warm and repeat from step 4 until you’ve cooked all 8 tortillas.
  7. Serve these warm with your favorite filling!
