Hello friends! I hope you are well and cooking up something yummy?
Gluten-Free Phyllo Dough Chat
I am sharing another gluten-free phyllo dough recipe with you guys. One of the many pleasures I have of being a chef and a food blogger is to be able to formulate recipes for those who have dietary needs or health concerns. I think for almost 4 years now I wanted to create a gluten-free phyllo dough recipe that actually tasted good. Not one that had the cardboard-like texture, or simply one that I couldn’t even roll out to a proper phyllo dough texture.
So, practice makes perfect. I realized after years and years of trying to perfect GF phyllo dough, it then came to me what some of the secret ingredients are.
First off a good blend of gluten-free flour is a must. Here in the USA, we have a few I like and of those, I suggest the Jules All Purpose Gluten Free Blend. (Now by no means will I say I’m a g.f. pro so you may disagree with my products.) Second, eggs and yeast really help bind this dough and make it come together. If you have ever tried making gluten-free dough, well sometimes it will come out very hard, and you can’t even roll it out because it literally is hard as a rock. So, I find that the right flour, eggs, and yeast are the top ingredients to make this recipe shine.
I want to credit this lady in Australia for the beautiful photos and for trying out two kinds of gluten-free phyllo dough recipes I made. Now she recommended an Australian gluten-free brand which is called “Ardor Food Co” flour. I haven’t tried it but I will take her word for it.
@her.locket.cooking thank you for making these beautiful spanakopita dishes!! You did an excellent job of both recipes but featured here in the photos is the second gluten-free recipe she tried. Many thanks for your beautiful photos!

Gluten-Free Phyllo Dough Recipe #2
- 1-1/3 cup lukewarm water
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1 teaspoon dry yeast
- 2 eggs at room temperature
- 3 1/2 cups of All-purpose GF flour blend (I like Jules blend)
- Pinch of salt
- In a small bowl whisk together the yeast, 1/3 cup of water, and honey. Let it sit until bubbly.
- On parchment paper sift the flour and salt. Add flour to a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add the yeast, water, and eggs. Mix until a dough forms. Cover dough inside bowl and place in a warm place until doubled in size. Approximately 1 hour.
- On a large work surface with cornstarch roll out the dough until it’s super thin almost translucent. Cut the dough into square sheets, and then use sheets to make savory or sweet pies.
