Gluten Free Pizza

Recommended Posts

Before being diagnosed about 2 weeks ago I would sell my soul for Pizza Hut Supreme Pan Pizza. I love it so much. SO MUCH. I was wondering if you guys had any recipes for really good pan pizza crust or pizza sauce. I heard you have to drown gluten free pizza crust in sauce because it all gets absorbed. I love pizza so much. How do I get that oily and greasy, deep fried taste of pizza hut? Please help? lol

Uhm, ah, what does this stuff taste like ? :o:ph34r:

If you want a crust that is sort of grease- crusted, you would lay a lot of olive oil down in the pizza pan first, maybe sprinkle with some gluten free cornmeal, then put the dough in it to bake until almost done. THEN you would put the toppings on it to finish it off, but you'd spread the top surface of the dough first with olive oil, then add the sauce, cheese, and toppings, then run it under the broiler again.

Alternatively, you could use a dedicated cast iron pan for gluten free cooking, and preheat it w/ olive oil, then add your crust, then it would bake/fry, but getting the pizza crust into the hot oiled pan would be a little tricky. You can preheat the pan on the stovetop burner. But that is another way to get a crispy fried bottom crust.

I hear you, Booghead! I used to love Pizza Hut Supreme Pan Pizza, too, but now make my own. It's not Pizza Hut but it's good and and it satisfies my pizza cravings but I don't make it greasy. Takala has given you some good suggestions for that. And no, you don't have to drown a gluten-free pizza crust in sauce. The only time I had trouble with that was when I used gluten-free Bisquick for a crust.

You might want to check this recent pizza crust thread and see if you can find a recipe that appeals to you.

The most palatable crust I've found is the pizza mix by Chebes, which a local health food store sells for less than $3, & the gluten-free mall carries it. There are a few gluten-free bloggers that have recreated the mix by using tapioca flour, etc., but I haven't tried that yet. If you check the ingredients on pizza sauce, they should be great. There's an organic one the I like available locally.

Get one of those holy pizza pans at Wal-Mart. $12.

SUPER SUPREME PIZZA

A feast of pepperoni, ham, beef, pork sausage, Italian sausage, red onions, mushrooms, green peppers and black olives.

I pasted that from Pizza Hut's web site, it should all be safe, but check ingredients. Just remember that when you're making pizza everything is in little bits, so unless you have other plans for those toppings, I'd trim it down a bit.

I had an unfortunate former marriage to someone who owned a pizza parlor, so I've had a LOT of pizza. My favorite is sausage, mushrooms and onion on a thin crust with lots of cheese. You can cook pizza in the oven (follow directions on the Chebe package) or grill it, it's yummy.

I'm not doing corn. Here's how I make pizza.

Make Chebe mix according to directions. Once rolled out(or patted, if you don't have a rolling pin), use a soup spoon to apply pizza sauce, and use the back of it to smooth it over the crust. You want to see some white on the crust, don't put the sauce on too thickly. Scatter your minced/chopped ingredients on the crust. Top with freshly shredded mozzarella cheese and some grated parmesan cheese. Drizzle a little olive oil over the top. Add S&P and Italian spices if desired and bake or grill per pkg. instructions.

I don't even bother reheating the leftovers, eat 'em cold. There's an older thread about pizza if you search, so maybe somebody has a better recipe than this one, but I'm really happy with this one.
