Disney Parks cater to different food allergies. For those guests who want to enjoy the deliciously fried fluffy clouds of dough at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory, there is a gluten-free choice! We’ve covered the classic recipe here, and today we are sharing this Gluten-Free Beignet recipe from Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort.


1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp warm water (100ºF)

1 1/2 tsp dry active yeast

1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp apple juice

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

3 tbsp sugar

2 1/2 tsp powdered gluten-free egg replacer

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp 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 for 5 minutes.
  2. Combine apple juice, applesauce, sugar, egg replacer, salt, oil and cinnamon in the bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment. Mix until well combined.
  3. Slowly add pizza crust mix until a soft dough forms – you will not use all of the mix. Place dough onto a surface coated with pizza crust mix. Knead until dough is soft but not sticky.
  4. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness and cut into squares. Set aside at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  5. Pour oil into a deep-sided pot until 2 inches in depth, heat over medium heat to 350ºF.
  6. Lightly press beignets to slightly flatten.
  7. Add a few beignets to oil and fry until golden brown on both sides turning once.
  8. Remove from oil and place on a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Repeat with remaining beignets.
  9. Dust with a generous amount of confectioners’ sugar before serving.
