Gluten Free Pizza
The usual birthday meal demands at our house involve lots of gluten free pizza. Since we don’t have pizza often (it’s a lot of work no matter how easy to you make it), it’s always a treat. This recipe should make it as easy and fast as possible, since all the kneading is done in your bread maker! This recipe makes 2 large pizzas. Since I’m cooking for a family of nine, I usually double the recipe!
3 large eggs
1/2 cup olive or grapeseed oil
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 cups rice flour or gluten free oat flour
1 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons yeast
3 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 teaspoon salt
More cornstarch, for dusting
Combine the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and pour into the bread-maker pan. In the bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add to pan.
Put the bread-maker pan in the bread-maker and select your regular cycle. As soon as the ‘knead’ part of this cycle is done (about 1 hour), remove pan from bread-maker.
While dough is still kneading, grease two large pizza pans and cover a clean surface with cornstarch.
Pour dough on floured surface and knead it out until it is fairly manageable. Divide dough into two parts and spread one part onto each pan.
Let dough rise for 45 minutes to an hour. While it is rising, prepare your pizza toppings.
When the dough is done rising, decorate the pizzas with toppings and put them in the oven.
Cook at 350 degrees F for about 45 minutes, until crust is golden brown.
For our pizza sauce we use 2 lbs ground beef cooked with 1 can tomato paste and 2 tablespoons pizza seasonings. Then we top the pizza with olives, peppers, pineapple, and mozzarella cheese.
