I am fairly certain that everyone likes pizza. Speak up if you are a pizza hater. The trick is bringing our love of pizza together with our commitment to healthy eating. The very best way to do that is to Make Your Own. And if you are on a gluten-free diet making your own is probably your only choice.
Regardless of wonky shapes the pizzas were fantastic! Smoky and crunchy and perfect. Like we had a campfire supper in the house.
Gluten-free dough needs to be pre-cooked, so we (and by we I mean Ken) cooked them, then flipped and cooked a bit more. Then we loaded them up with toppings and cooked until the cheese melted. Ken said he will cook a little bit less next time. The trick to grilling dough is to brush oil on the grill and the dough. We used grapeseed oil.
We also baked a few of these pizza’s in the oven. Not nearly as tasty as the ones from the grill. I don’t recommend this as oven bake recipe.
Jeanne at Four Chickens, grilled some pizza too and her recipe is also gluten-free
I also tried a gluten-free pizza dough mix. Which isn’t exactly Make Your Own but I was at my mom’s and she doesn’t have the flour and starch selection I do.
This is me making Bob’s Red Mills gluten-free pizza dough. While it was very tasty, it was super sticky and I had to press it into place with wet fingers.
I followed the instructions on the bag. It also needed a few minutes to pre-cook.
I don’t have a great gluten free from scratch recipe yet. Still working on it.
My best pizza dough recipe is a glutenous one, so I’ve haven’t used it in some time. It can be made in a food processor or a stand mixer. I’ve even made it by hand too.
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour (you can use whole wheat or spelt), 1 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp, salt, 1 package of quick rise yeast. Mix this together. Add 1 1/4 cup of hot water and 1 tbsp oil. Mix until ball forms. Divide into 2 balls on a floured surface and let rest. I roll them out in rectangles to fiy my cookie sheets. This is enough doung to fill 2 sheets.
Bake at 35o until bubbly and delicious.
And one for the Bread Maker Pizza Dough
1 cup beer or water, 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp salt, 2 2/3 cup of all purpose flour, 1 ¼ tsp yeast, 2 tbsp cornmeal for dusting your pan if needed.
Measure first 6 ingredients into baking pan in order.
Select dough/pasta setting. Press start. When complete remove dough from machine on to floured surface. If necessary, knead in enough flour to make dough easy to handle. Grease pans (2 12-inch, 1 14-inch or 1 15 x 10), sprinkle with cornmeal (optional). Roll out dough and place on pans. Top pizzas as desired. Bake @ 425F for 15-25 minutes or until edge of crust is golden and cheese is bubbling.
Makes 1 large, 2 medium or 4 personal size.
And lastly toppings.
My favorite is caramelized onions and sausage.
