Pizza Crust Recipe

I made this recipe for the first time last week. I don’t even have to made more pizza this week, we saved the rest in the freezer. It freezes well. I did not feel deprived of eating real pizza when with this recipe!

OH, I remember from years ago because I really don’t try to make yeast wheat-free breads, but I found in making this recipe that wheat-free yeast recipes are best made with the help of a STAND MIXER.

I’m new at this and I believe you have to click on the title “Pizza Crust Recipe” to go to the recipe and the blog where I got it. I am also copy/pasting the recipe below…

Karina’s Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Recipe

I’m finally happy with a gluten-free pizza crust. It’s the best gluten-free dairy-free pizza crust I’ve eaten. These particular flours bring superior flavor and a perfect pizza crust texture. Slightly golden crisp at the edge, with a tender, flexible middle. Not too thick and not too thin. You can hold a slice in your hand and bite.

Ingredients:

1 cup tapioca starch
1 cup sorghum flour
1 cup potato starch
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup GF millet flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
3 tablespoons organic light brown sugar
1 1/4 cup warm water (between 110 – 115ºF)
1 teaspoon organic light brown sugar
1 packet (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1/4 cup good olive oil
1/4 cup beaten organic free-range egg whites (or egg replacer for two eggs)
1/4 teaspoon light tasting rice vinegar

Instructions:

Grease two 12-inch pizza pans and dust lightly with gluten-free flour. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flours and dry ingredients.

Proof the yeast in 1 cup warm water with a pinch of sugar.

Add the proofed yeast to the dry ingredients. Add the oil, eggs and vinegar.

Beat the dough until smooth and sticky. Add the remaining 1/4 cup water if you need to. The pizza dough should be creamy smooth and not too thick- it’s not sturdy like typical bread dough. It almost borders on batter.

Using a silicone spatula divide the dough in half. Scoop each half onto the center of a prepared pizza pan. Using clean, wet hands press down lightly and flatten the dough to create a thin, even pizza shell, with slightly raised edges. You’ll have to rinse your hands more than once to do this. Take your time to smooth out the dough with wet palms. Have patience, Bubela. You will be rewarded with a lovely crust. Promise.

Set the pizza shells in a warm cozy spot to rest and rise a bit- about 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

When the oven is hot, place the two pizza pans side by side on the center rack (if your oven is too small to accommodate both pans on one rack, you’ll need to use two racks; rotate the pans half way through baking time to avoid overcooking on the lower rack).

Bake for ten minutes till golden.

Remove from the oven. Preheat the broiler.

Brush the pizza shell with extra virgin olive oil. Season with sea salt and fresh garlic. Sprinkle with Italian herbs.

Top with your choice of fresh vegetables and herbs.

I used:

Fresh baby spinach leaves and basil
Roasted eggplant slices
Sliced fresh tomatoes
Vegan “mozzarella” cheese
Italian herbs (dried oregano, marjoram, parsley, rosemary, thyme)
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil all over the top

Broil briefly to melt the cheese, 4-5 minutes. Don’t over cook.

Cook time:20 min

Makes two 12-inch pizzas

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s
    simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari.
    Exceptional Blog!
