Simply gather all of the necessary ingredients for this decadent treat and follow the instructions below.



  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water (100°F)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons apple juice
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons powdered gluten-free egg replacer
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon canola oil
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pound gluten-free pizza crust mix
  • Confectioners’ sugar for finishing


  1. Combine warm water and yeast in a small bowl; set aside 5 minutes.

  2. Combine apple juice, applesauce, sugar, egg replacer, salt, oil, and cinnamon in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix until well combined.

  3. Add pizza crust mix, 1/4 cup at a time, until soft dough forms (you will not use all of mix). Turn dough out onto a work surface dusted with remaining pizza crust mix. Knead until dough is no longer sticky but still soft.

  4. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness, and cut into 2×3-inch pieces. Set aside at room temperature for 20 minutes.

  5. Pour enough oil into a deep-sided pot until it reaches 2 inches up sides; heat oil over medium heat to 350°F.

  6. Lightly press beignets to flatten slightly.

  7. Add a few beignets to oil; fry until golden brown on both sides, turning once.

  8. Remove from hot oil with a slotted spoon and place on a baking sheet lined with paper towels.

  9. Dust with a generous amount of confectioners’ sugar before serving.
