    Zucchini-Crust Pizza (Gluten-Free)

    This recipe comes to us from Mireille Cote.

    3 ½ cup coarsely grated zucchini
    salt
    3 eggs, beaten
    1/3 cup gluten-free flour mix
    ½ cup grated gluten-free mozzarella cheese
    ½ cup grated gluten-free parmesan cheese
    1 Tbsp. fresh basil, minced
    salt and pepper to taste

    Salt zucchini and let stand 15 minutes to draw out moisture. Squeeze the moisture out really well. Combine zucchini with remaining ingredients and spread onto a medium pizza pan that has been well oiled. Bake at 350 F for 25-30 minutes until surface is dry and firm. Brush top with oil and broil under moderate heat for 5 minutes. Top with desired pizza toppings and bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes. Cut into squares.

  • 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 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

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.

    1 cup gluten-free flour ½ cup Argo or Kingsfords corn starch 1 teaspoon baking powder ¼ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon xanthan gum Seasoning – pinch of parsley, oregano & parmesan cheese. ¾ cup milk ¼ cup Mazola corn oil 1/3 cup prepared gluten-free pizza sauce (I buy a small 8 oz can of tomato sauce and add spices such as basil, oregano, garlic powder, black pepper or whatever youd like, stir it up right in the can and use that). 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese (I always use way more than that) Favorite toppings Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In medium bowl combine rice flour, corn starch, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum, and spices. Stir in milk and corn oil to form a very soft dough. Spread on cookie sheet to form a 10-inch circle, ¼-inch thick. (I use my Pampered Chef round pizza stone.) Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until lightly browned around edge. Remove from oven. Spread sauce over crust; sprinkle with cheese. Add pepperoni, sausage, green peppers, onions, whatever youd like. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Makes 6 servings.
