Corn And Rice And Gluten Free Pizza Crust?

Recommended Posts

All of the talk of arsenic in rice is really starting to worry me, since both of my small children also have celiac. Between the pastas, the flours, and just plain old rice, we live on rice!  I really need to start reducing the amount we eat, and since pizza is their favorite food, I thought I would start out by trying to find a crust recipe (or mix) that doesn't use rice flour or corn because I am also corn sensitive.  Does anyone have such a recipe? And in general, what are the other good sort of all purpose gluten free flours out there, that can take the place of rice flour?  Preferably something not terribly expensive.  Sorghum?  I'm not too familiar with it.

Against the Grain makes a decent pizza crust. Here are the ingredients: Tapioca starch, milk, eggs, non-GMO canola oil, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese. I have no idea what the proportions are but it seems the cheeses are what holds it all together. There are also several recipes online for pizza crust made with cauliflower and cheese.As a matter of fact, there are a lot of recipes that use grated cauliflower instead of flour. One of these days I'm going to make some biscuits that way.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

Here is a recipe for an easy pizza crust that seems to good to be true, but works very well.  I found it on some random blog a long time ago, I like the flavor of quinoa a lot and this holds up well, it is not too chewy.

 

Quinoa Pizza Crust

1C quinoa, rinsed, soaked 8-12 hours and then rinsed again

1 ¼ tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

¼ C + 2 Tbsp. water

 

Combine all ingredients in food processor and run 2-3 minutes until smooth. 

 

Spread on a pan lined with parchment paper that has been sprayed with olive oil.  Do not put it straight on the pan, it will stick like crazy. 

 

Bake 20 minutes at 425 F.  Add toppings, and then bake 5-10 minutes until done.  Makes enough crust to cover a half sheet pan.
