Gluten Free Pizza Crust

January 8, 2010

I found this recipe and adjusted it some, It called for Sorghum flour which I didn’t have and whole milk so I traded the sorghum with coconut flour and the whole milk with cream and water.  I have  not been  particularly fond of the garbanzo bean flour in some other things but you can’t taste it in this recipe  i think I would maybe trade out for more coconut flour if I were to do it again b cause bean flour gives me gas. 

I haven’t done this recipe again since because I’ve been lazy so I have trying the prepackaged mixes.  The Namaste stuff is really intensely spiced.  I like to taste the pizza toppings not just the crust :-).  I tried another, I think arrowhead, that was a pain.  The last couple times I used the Bob’s red mill and it has worked well.  I cook it well done then I can freeze cooked pieces and reheat right out of the freezer for a quick meal without the crust being soggy.

This is a good recipe though I really liked it!

You can see how the dough is soft and has to be pressed  into the pan with wet hands

Pizza Crust

3/4 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup white rice flour
1/3 cup garbanzo bean flour
1/3 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon xanthum gum
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 cup cream 1/4 cup
1/4 cup plus 1 tsp. Warm water
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 teaspoons raw sugar or dehydrated cane juice
2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

Place all the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl.
Mix warm water, sugar and yeast let sit for a couple minutes then add cream egg whites and olive oil and mix well.

Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients

Transfer dough to a sweet rice sprinkled pan or olive oil greased (my personal preference) pan. Oil hands with olive oil and press dough (which is sticky ) into the pan.

Bake crust only for 10-14 minutes

Add desired toppings and return to the oven to bake until the cheese is a golden brown.

Makes 2 – 10 in crusts or 1 12 in inch thick crust

I made it in one 11X16 cookie sheet
