Gluten Free Pizza pg3
And finally, we come to…
4) Gluten free pizza dough mix from scratch, a little more work but worth it! Our good friends at Bob’s Red Mill offer a mix that is super easy and makes perfect dough. You can mix it in a bowl and let it rise old school or you can cheat like we do and use the breadmaker’s dough setting. Either way, you’ll have enough dough for two 12 inch pizza pies in a jiffy.
When making the gluten free pizza dough, it tends to be a little sticky so have some Bob’s Red Mill all-purpose GF flour handy to keep things floured-up. Also, a little extra virgin olive oil never hurts either. This is by far the best GF dough we’ve tried, but it is also the most work. The dough can be made up in advance and refrigerated (short periods) or frozen for later use. In addition to great pizzas, the GF dough makes wonderful calzones and stromboli, so zip through the deli and the produce isle, get the freshest toppings you can find and go crazy. We’ll have some great calzone and stromboli ideas coming soon to the recipe section so stay tuned.
A little bit of planning goes a long, long way in the GF world. Make pizza night a semi-regular event so that you can spend time together in the kitchen making personal pizzas. And best of all, your gluten-sufferer won’t feel like they have been banished to Nopizzaland the next time they have to pass on ‘regular pizza’. That’s because they know that GF pizza night is just around the corner and their favorite GF pizza is heartier and more wholesome than any pizza that arrives at your door in 30 minutes or less.
You'll know that you’ve passed GF Pizza 101 when non-gluten suffers prefer your GF Pizza over other 'regular' pizzas.
