    Amazing Pizza Crust (Gluten-Free)

    This recipe comes to us from Carol Fensters cookbook: Special Diet Solutions.

    1T gluten-free dry yeast
    2/3 cup brown rice flour or bean flour
    ½ cup tapioca flour
    2 tablespoons dry milk powder or nondairy milk powder or sweet rice flour
    2 teaspoons xanthan gum
    ½ teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin powder
    1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
    2/3 cup warm water (105 deg F)
    ½ teaspoon sugar or ¼ teaspoon honey
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    1 teaspoon cider vinegar or ¼ teaspoon unbuffered vitamin C crystals cooking spray

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

    In medium mixer bowl using regular beaters (not dough hooks), blend the yeast, flours, dry milk powder, xanthan gum, salt, gelatin powder and Italian herb seasoning on low speed. Add warm water, sugar (or honey), olive oil, and vinegar. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. (If the mixer bounces around the bowl, the dough is too stiff. Add water if necessary, one tablespoon at a time, until dough does not resist beaters.) The dough will resemble soft bread dough. (You may also mix in bread machine on dough setting. ) Put mixture into 12-inch pizza pan or on baking sheet (for thin, crispy crust), 11x7-inch pan (for deep dish version) that has been coated with cooking spray. Liberally sprinkle rice flour onto dough, then press dough into pan, continuing to sprinkle dough with flour to prevent sticking to your hands. Make edges slightly higher to contain toppings.

    Bake the pizza crust for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Spread pizza crust with sauce and toppings. Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until top is nicely browned.

    Preparation time: 45 minutes

  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    This recipe comes to us from Mireille Cote.
    1 cup coarsely grated carrots
    3 tsp. minced fresh basil or 1 tsp. dried basil
    ½ cup gluten-free cottage cheese
    2 ½ cups cooked brown rice
    1/3 cup gluten-free flour mix
    1 cup canned tomato sauce
    2 Tbsp. finely chopped onions
    1 ½ (6 oz.) cups shredded gluten-free mozzarella cheese
    For the crust, place the carrots in a strainer. Place unopened can of fruit or vegetables on top to squeeze the excess liquid from the carrots. Let drain for 20 minutes, then pat dry with paper towels.
    In a large bowl, stir together the cottage cheese, flour, onions, and 1 ½ teaspoons of the fresh basil or ½ teaspoon of he dried basil. Then stir in the carrots and cooled rice.
    Spray a 13x 9 baking pan with no-stick spray. Spread the crust mixture in the bottom and about ¼-inch up the sides of the pan. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes. Then broil 4 inches from the heat about 2 minutes or until the crust is browned, without burning the carrots.
    Spread the tomato sauce on the crust and top with the cheese.* Then sprinkle with the remaining 1 ½ teaspoons of fresh basil or ½ teaspoon dried basil. Bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and light brown. Slice and serve.
    *To jazz up this pizza, scatter 1 cup of chopped cooked vegetables over the tomato sauce. Sprinkle with the cheese and bake as directed. Broccoli, artichoke hearts, carrots, cauliflower, peppers, onions, and mushrooms are good choices. Makes 8 servings.

    1 cup brown rice flour
    2 cups white rice flour
    6 teaspoons xanthan gum
    ¼ cup plus 2 teaspoons sugar
    1 ½ teaspoons salt
    1 1/3 cups nonfat milk powder
    1 package dry yeast
    2 large eggs, beaten
    1 ¾ cups warm water
    ¼ cup melted butter or margarine
    Mix all together and place in bread machine at regular setting for bread and begin the baking process. (On my machine, after about 30 min. there is a beep to tell you it is time to add things like nuts, fruit, etc. to breads.) At this time I take out the dough. It is very sticky!
    Grease and flour two pizza pans. Divide the dough in half and roll out on pizza pans. Make sure to use lots of gluten-free flour on your hands and on the dough as you roll it. (I actually just use my hands, not a rolling pin). Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 min. or until browned.
    Take out and put on ingredients. Bake again until cheese bubbly. This looks and tastes just like regular pizza and freezes well in individual pieces.

    This recipe comes to us from Susan Mullikin.
    4 cup shredded zucchini, drained and squeezed dry (I wrapped it in a dish towel and twisted it)
    2 cup cooked rice
    1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese
    1 cup parmesan cheese
    2 eggs
    1 lb. ground beef
    1 med. onion, chopped
    1 ½s cup spaghetti sauce
    1 teaspoon oregano
    ½ teaspoon salt
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    Combine zucchini, rice, cheeses and eggs. Press into greased 15 x 11 pan. Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes until it sets and is lightly brown. In a pan, brown the beef with onions then drain the fat and stir in sauce and spices, and spoon over the top of crust. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake @ 400F for 15 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

    2 cups white rice flour

    2 teaspoons xanthan gum
    1 teaspoon sugar
    ½ -1 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 1/3 cup very warm water
    Mix dry ingredients. Add water and oil and mix well. Pat onto 13 greased pizza pan. Bake at 425F for 15 - 20 minutes. Remove from oven and top with favorites. Return to oven and bake until done (Microwave variation for freezing: Shape dough into 6 rounds. Cook as above but cook on rack until crusts are browned. Cool, top , & freeze in Ziploc bags. Microwave to reheat toppings & melt cheese.)

    Thank you — I'm not feeling super-chuffed about it at the moment. I don't feel ill! I've never had a brain MRI and I hope never to need to, but I've seen the white lesions all over my partner's brain when he was scanned (not for coeliac disease) and it's terrifying. I hope I don't have those! I'd never heard of that in coeliac disease, though I've heard of the ataxia. I'll ask for b vitamin tests… I worry about those anyway, because two of the medications I'm on also have a bad effect
    Sorry, yes, vast genetic component in all of them; what I meant was that there are people in my family with equally severe ASD and bipolar type problems to me, who don't have digestive issues, and vice versa. I'm not ruling out interactions, though; I'd be very happy if the fatigue and fuzzy thinking lifted a bit, though I guess it's unlikely to go altogether, as there are big differences in energy and cognition depending on what bipolar meds I'm on. For preference, I use an erythritol+sucr
    “Understanding Less Than 20 Parts Per Million (PPM) It is a common misconception that foods labeled "gluten-free" can or do contain zero parts per million (ppm) of gluten. At this time, no validated tests are able to accurately detect gluten at zero. Less than 20 ppm is an amount that has been deemed safe by celiac disease experts for MOST people living with the genetic autoimmune disease. In 2011, Beyond Celiac Scientific/Medical Advisory Council Member Dr. Alessio Fasano of the Cente
