Hi vinnie, and welcome! :D

I use this recipe, which was posted here by member hangininthere. My non gluten-free husband and I love it--it's easy to put together, and tastes really good.

'New York Style' Pizza Crust

Makes one 16" pizza crust or two smaller crusts - foldable floppy and not crispy.

2 tablespoons rapid-rise yeast

1 1l3 cup warm milk

1 teaspoon sugar

1 1l3 cup brown rice flour--(I use white rice flour)

1 cup tapioca flour--(I substitute half cornstarch and half potato starch, due to a tapioca sensitivity)

2 teaspoons guar gum--(I substitute xanthan gum)

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons gelatin powder

2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning--(I omit this)

2 teaspoons olive oil

2 teaspoons apple cidar vinegar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk and sugar.

In separate large bowl, blend together dry ingredients.

Stir in yeast mixture.

Add oil and apple cider vinegar.

Mix well.

Pat onto buttered and floured sheet - sprinkle flour on top of dough before you pat down, to avoid sticking to hands.--(I don't sprinkle the flour, I simply use a piece of plastic wrap between my hands and the dough to flatten out)

Rub olive oil on top of patted out dough.

Bake plain untopped crust for 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and add toppings.

Return to oven and finish baking for another 20 minutes.

I would also reccomend going on french meadow bakery's website and ordering. They send you 6 par baked crust each in there own foil pans. The best crust I have found! This is the brand Uno's Pizza orders from.

This recipe comes from Julie, one of the contributors on "Mennonite Girls

Can Cook". This is absolutely the best gluten-free pizza crust we've ever

had; in fact, it's better than many of the wheat-based crusts we've had,

too!

White bean flour may be purchased from Bob's Red Mill and Barry Farms

websites. It is not at all strong-tasting like Garfava flour or garbanzo

flour.

Ingredients

2 cups brown rice flour

1 cup tapioca starch

3/4 white bean flour

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/3 tsp. oregano

1 1/2 tbsp. xanthan gum

1 tsp. vinegar

1/3 cup olive oil

2 eggs plus one egg white

1 3/4 cup warm water

2 tbsp. sugar

1 tbsp. honey

1 tbsp active dry yeast

Directions

Add sugar and honey to warm water...sprinkle yeast over top and "proof"

until foamy. Beat eggs, oil, vinegar in bowl of heavy duty mixer; add

proofed yeast. Mix all dry ingredients together well, add to liquid in

bowl. Mix until blended , then turn mixer on high and beat for 4 minutes -

you will see (and hear) the consisency of the dough change.

The dough will be sticky, but using a spatula turn it out onto a clean

surface sprinkled with sweet rice flour (or tapioca starch). Using as

little flour as possible knead the dough gently until you can handle it .

It should be a very soft dough.

Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper. Using your hands pat the

dough out and form it into pizza shapes, making the edges higher and

thicker. Place pizza crusts on pans and let rise in warm place for about

45 minutes.

When pizzas have risen, bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Remove from oven,

spread with pizza sauce and desired toppings and bake at 400 for another 20

minutes.

Hi- we haven't had much luck with homemade crusts but we've found a frozen crust that we really like. Its by Gramma's not sure if that's the full name, but it is a frozen crust that we bought at Fresh and Natural in Shoreview, MN. I would guess you could google it and find other places that sell the gluten free crust.

We have had luck with purchasing gluten free pizza when we are out to eat! Yeah! ZPizza chain serves gluten free pizza and you can pick the toppings. We've also just learned that Davanni's will top your gluten free pizza crust for you. It tastes sooooo much better than doing it at home. Call ahead or email the Davanni's in your area. Then all I did was bring in the crusts and pick out our favorite toppings and they made them no problem!

Of course you do end up paying more for your pizza b/c you've already paid for the crust and then you have to pay for a pizza that's the same size at Davanni's but as a gluten free treat it is soooo worth it. Boy I'm hungry for one right now! :P

If you don't feel like making your own from scratch, chebe pizza crust that you can get at some health food stores or online is a crust that you just add eggs, oil, and milk. It's a very thin cracker crust that most kids will like ( I like it when I don't feel like going to all the work). Plus there is minimal ingredients since your daughter was just diagnosed so no xantham gum, guar gum etc which may help until she gets used to the diet.

My 3 yo was just diagnosed a few weeks ago too. I've been making really basic pizza for my kids using a taco-sized corn tortilla, tomato sauce, cheese and pepperoni. Bakes in 5 minutes, so its a fast dinner. Both the kids actually like it, even my picky older one.

Our whole family just had gluten-free pizza for dinner tonight....we love the "Kinnikinnick" brand and it's super-easy. It's a frozen crust, you just put on your fav toppings then bake for 15 minutes. You can order it directly from their website, or I get it from our local health food store. Kinnikinnick also has IMHO the best gluten-free white sandwhich bread-I toast it though. Pre-made, so EASY when you're busy with the kids.......also donuts (YUMMY!) and waffles. If you don't have a local health food store that carries it, order online and they do not charge an arm and a leg. All their products are dairy free too, in case you need that.

We tried pizza crust but what seems to work best for us is to get a slice of gluten free sandwich bread (we use whole foods one) and spread some pizza sauce and sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top and put in the toaster oven for 10 minutes. We also like the gluten-free pantry and 365 pizza crust mixes for something more elaborate.
