Oh, I see. Thank you. I'm an old guy, so I guess I'm not in such a hurry. The term "pop" is not part of my regular working vocabulary. I mix enough for two pizzas and just save half in the fridge for the next day or two.

What does it mean to "par cook" it?

Do you keep it in a ball after it rises and then store it?

Sorry I'm late to answer. Didn't have my notifications set.
Yes, I just keep it in a ball and refrigerate it. It needs to come to room temperature before you use it. That's not such a big deal unless you are in a hurry: just flatten it partly and then let it warm before really forming it.

Also, did I say "double batch"?! I meant that I make a half batch and then save half of that. My wife and I cannot eat huge quantities of pizza, even if it is gluten free. Here's how I make the pizza:

I bought an 11" square cast iron griddle without a handle that just fits into my toaster oven. I get it warming up at 425 and then make the pizza. I mash the dough out on a floured (yes gluten-free flour) board, drizzle on some olive oil to give it that nice Italian flavor, then put some sliced onions, tomatoes and tasty cheese (not mozzarella) on it. Some cooked bacon or other smoked meat gives it a wood-fired flavor. Then I grease the griddle with some coconut oil (best vegetable oil to use on cast iron that I have found) and slide the pizza onto it. It cooks hot and fast and tastes great. Top with some fresh basil and grated parmesan if you have it.

I go for the straight up pig on a bone just like my grammy always made. That's it, someone took a pig, killed it, cut off it's leg and turned it into a ham. BAM! Christmas dinner. Zero gluten worries there, not that I don't read the package but it's pretty hard to screw up pig in plastic.


We raised pigs (for our own consumption only!) when I was a kid. Man, I am glad I don't do that anymore! But if you live in or near the country there are probably butchers around who will butcher a hog and take a percentage of it instead of money - then they sell the meat. It's one way to get unprocessed pork (beef, too) and at a good price if you buy a lot at once and freeze it. I think many of the smaller outfits can even give you "provenance" on your meat - who grew it and if it is "organic", grass fed, etc.

Decaf coffee does not have gluten We asked him where he got that info and he didn't give us an answer.
