Best Ever Homemade Pizza

We love pizza! Because I have food allergies and can't eat regular flour, I have to make my own pizza crust. Soon after we were married I started experimenting with different recipes. This recipe is definitely the best! It is the quickest, easiest and tastiest! I originally got this recipe from Crystal at Money Saving Mom but I've made a few changes.

Pizza Crust:
1 T. dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105-115 degrees)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp vegetable oil (I use olive oil)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp (each) oregano, basil, & rosemary (if you don't have separate spices, you can substitute Italian seasoning)
2 1/2 cups flour

Dissolve the yeast in water. Add remaining ingredients except flour. Mix well. Stir in flour & knead until dough is smooth. I just knead directly in the bowl, but you do it on a floured surface as well.

Press dough onto a greased pizza stone or pizza pan. Add your favorite toppings. Be creative! You can use pretty much anything. This is the combination we like best: pasta sauce, pepperoni, cooked & drained sausage, peppers, onions, mushrooms, and mozzarella cheese.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until crust looks crispy and slightly browned. Enjoy!

What kind of flour do you use in the recipe? I'd like to pass this onto my MIL since she can't eat flour either, but I'd like to know what mix/replacement flour type you like best in this dough.
