Pizza Dough
0

14 posts in this topic

I love making homemade pizza dough, but often don't have time to do it right before dinner. Will it turn out ok if I make it a few hours ahead of time? I wasn't sure if it would rise too much with the yeast. If ok, should I refrigerate it or let it sit at room temperature before baking?

Also curious...can I freeze the dough? If so, should I pop it in the freezer right after mixing it, then let it sit at room temperature for a little while after thawing? I know I could bake the crust and freeze, but I think it would be nice to bake the dough when eating sometimes.

Thank you!

Holly,

I make mine, bake and then freeze. I'm not sure how the unbaked dough would freeze, thaw and rise, but once baked, the shells freeze great. This is the recipe I use. My DH says its the best crust he's ever had. I've also made flat bread out of it and foccacia. I make the crusts personal size so everyone can make their own.

I make the pizza crust from Bette Hagamn's book called "The Gluten Free Gourmet Cooks Fast and Healthy"

I saw the recipe posted on here too but I forgot where. :(

I make an extra crust. Bake it about 12 minutes. Let it cool, flip it out of the pan to cool the bottom of it. Then wrap and freeze it. Then another day its ready, just thaw it, top and bake until toppings are hot and cheese is melted.

I think you could prebake a crust part way, then put it in the fridge. Later in the day, take it out, top and bake.

Holly,

Have you tried Carol Fenster's recipe for pizza crust? I found it online at Recipezaar dot com--recipe number 44487. works perferctly each time and is quite tasty. Even my non-gluten-free husband loves this. when it is too hot to use the oven for pizza, try covering the pizza with foil and cooking it outside with the gas grill. Best of all, you dont have to wait for this dough to rise like regular pizza dough.

The recipe is also on the back of Bob's Red Mill Garfava flour. You can substitute the brown rice flour for Garfava flour for a healthier alternative.

This is the BEST pizza recipe, hands down.

I pre-bake it (not too brown), flash freeze it. Then I use the foodsaver to get the air out (or you could squeeze the air out of a ziplock freezer bag). When I'm ready to use it then I cook it --without thawing with sauce and cheese.

Rachelle,

That looks like a good pizza crust. I don't have chickpea flour. What would be a good sub? Any flour? I do have garfava flour, which I was thinking would be close. BUT...I have one daughter who seems to think all flours leave an after taste (well - at least the sorghum - which I totally don't taste)...so I am thinking garfava is a stronger flavor? Could I use potatoe starch? Millet?

Also, do you think I could use water for the milk? Or would that totally change it? I thought about subbing rice milk - but that might lend a sweet taste, I am not sure. I would probably be okay with it, not sure about my 2 daughters. (yes, have 2. One seems to notice aftertaste on stuff, the other doesn't - but thinking both of them would notice the rice milk).

Thanks!

Dawn

Hi Dawn,

I never use the chickpea or garfava flour, I don't like the taste either. I use my own flour blend-I posted it on the cinammon roll thread-for the flours listed. I think you can also use water for milk (whatever kind of milk you want). I know the bread recipe I use says you can use either. I find this recipe to be pretty forgiving, it's always turned out right no matter what kinds of substitutions I make-and I tend to make a lot...

Hi Rachelle,

Thanks for the answer on the flours. I just noticed the recipe uses eggs. I am currently avoiding eggs (have eliminated them and have not done a challenge yet to see what effect they are or are not having).

I am thinking the egg would help with chewiness, holding it together? I am not sure if egg replacer would work in pizza dough - I am fairly new at using it. Do you think it would work? I am wondering if maybe I should try the egg replacer and also use a tsp of unflavored gelatin? Not sure if I need the gelatin - because I am not totally sure of what the purpose of the egg is.

Thanks,

Dawn :unsure:

I don't have any experience with the egg replacer, but I would think it would be fine to use. Someone else who reads this might have more info. I've never used the gelatin either... Sorry ;)

Thanks for the links purple! :lol:

I did make this recipe tonight with modifications so thought I would post. I used Ener-G egg replacer and water (instead of eggs). In place of the chickpea flour, I used brown rice flour. Next time I would like to sub out some of the flour for a little bit of millet. I might even try using some gelatin - but making my crusts a little thicker next time would probably help it be a bit more chewy.

All in all I think it came out well. I pre-baked them for about 15 minutes (they were still not crisp on the bottom and I was worried they wouldn't be done enough to top and bake again - but no worries - it was fine). I put parchment paper on top of my pizza stone and then put the dough on the paper. I spread with a metal spatula (what I would use to ice a cake). It was easy to spread on the parchment as it stuck to the paper (didn't lift up). I was able to get nice circles. (I didn't know what a baking peel was - referenced in the recipe).

I might try adding a small amount of spice to the crust the next time as well as trying something like rice milk or hemp milk (I don't know what hemp milk tastes like - but I need a bland milk sub so as not to flavor the crust). OR I might try brushing the crust with garlic butter - that would be really good and might add that little bit extra I am looking for. Also, I would like it to be just a bit thicker than mine turned out, so will spread a bit smaller in diameter.

After topping one of the crusts, I baked for almost 20 more minutes at 400. The crust was light brown, crispy on the bottom. Overall, it was a success! One of the better crusts I have made and very easy as well. I will be making more tomorrow for my freezer. :P I just need to adjust to pizza without cheese now - or try a non-dairy cheese -which just does not sound appetizing.

Kinnikinnick Foods makes an excellent gluten free pizza dough. If you ask your local grocery store (go straight to the manager) to order them, they will. Harry's Farmer's Market carries them. Kroger orders them if I ask.. They are frozen and they come in 7 inch or 10 inch. They don't taste like cardboard.

Thanks Josh! I have actually tried Kinnickinnick's crust - and I like it. I have a small stock pile in my freezer. :lol: For some reason it is not a favorite of my girls. They comment on the sweetness of the crust. :( Kinnickinnick gets my endorsement too for a purchased gluten-free product.

I do notice the sweetness as well, but overall it was the best I had found. I probably prefer it over the ones I have made from scratch, though my girls like my scratch ones. Go figure. ;) I think if I add some italian seasoning or brush my scratch ones with garlic butter - they might edge ahead of the kinnickinnick ones for me though - since they are soft and a little chewy and a little thicker.

Yea, I tried to make my own, but it wasn't as good as the Kinnikinnick Foods crust.

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy. View the full article
    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
