Updating this as it recently become possible to rotate sections and thus also individual pages in Google Docs.

There are two ways how to change orientation of just a single page in the document:

  1. On page that already exists and which you want to change orientation of single page select something and go to File -> Page Setup and you should see selection box Apply to. Here select Selected content and choose desired orientation.

  2. This option is very similar to MS Word and allows to change properties of entire section. Create section break starting on new page Insert -> Break -> Section Break (Next Page). Then you can use Format -> Page Orientation or File -> Page Setup and choose section you've just created in the Apply to selection box. Choose desired orientation.

First option basically does same thing as second, behind scenes creates a new section and then applies orientation for that section.

If you don't see options above (particularly Apply to selection box) it might be because you are using corporate Google Workspaces/Apps with conservative new feature rollout policy and this feature wasn't rolled out to you yet. I tested above successfully on bare GMail account.
