PIZZA CRUST

This is transcribed from an enclosure that used to be in the Gluten Free Pantry French Bread and Pizza mix.

1 box GFP French Bread and Pizza mix (w/ enclosed packet of yeast)

1-3/4 cups lukewarm water or milk

1 tsp cider vinegar

1 Tbsp sugar or honey

1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup olive oil (or melted butter)

2 eggs plus 1 egg white

Preheat oven to 450F.

Lightly oil two 12-1/2 x 1" round pans. In a bowl, combine yeast and pizza mix.

In a separate bowl, beat eggs for 3 minutes. Do not stop mixer, slowly add the pizza mix and continue mixing for one minute. Add the sugar and salt and continue mixing for 1 minute. Add the oil and keep mixing. Add the vinegar to the water to dilute in a small bowl and add to the mix. Keep mixing for 2 minutes.

Spoon into an oiled pan.

Cover the pan with plastic wrap. For best results, let rise 35-40 minutes. Brush entire surface lightly with olive oil. Beginning with sauce of your choice, layer desired toppings on crust. Bake for 15-17 minutes (to desired brown color and top crispness).

Yield: 2 pizza crusts.

We prefer a thinner crust, so we make three crusts instead of two. Those that we bake and store are baked for 10 minutes initially (with the oil applied), and then refrigerated. When we take them out of the fridge and top them, we then bake them for another 10 minutes or so.

Peter, you are truly a fount of knowledge and wisdom. Will pass this recipe on to Hub, as he is the designated pizza maker.

Hi Karen,

have you had a look at the Pizza Making Forum ? there is a Gluten Free Section.

Plus look at the Monthly Challenge (this month March) is to make a Pizza without a dough crust.

There's been interesting entries, Rice based crusts, Sweet Potato Crusts, Sausage meat and rice flour crusts. Look at off-topic foods they have some gluten-free Entries that don't pertain to Pizza .

Best Regards,

My SIL gave me a recipe for a cauliflower crust. She has made it & said the teens liked it. I saw one I copied on this site for one made of cheese & more cheese (a lot fat option ;) ). Thanks, I'll check it out.

I tried a crust made w/ cheese and it was just okay. It got completely soggy w/ toppings. I'm now a huge fan of Namaste pizza crust mix that I just found in my health food store (I live in rural Arkansas and gluten-free options in stores are mighty slim). One bag makes 2 pizzas, but you can measure out just 1 crust's ingredients. I spread it out on parchment paper on top of our Pampered Chef pizza stone and the resulting crust is PERFECT... thin and crispy!!!
