Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Pepperoni Pizza
I adapted Cooking with Isaiah's Perfect Pizza Crust to make this tasty pizza. Cooking with Isaiah is one of my favorite cook books and it is a great gift for the holidays for anyone who is gluten free. Here is a link to the Perfect Pizza Crust recipe which was posted on Just A Pinch.
Silvana Nardone, who wrote Cooking with Isaiah suggests rolling the dough--but I like to press the dough on parchment with well floured fingers until it is flat. This gives a pizza shape instead of flat shape. I flatten the dough on parchment and then I cut the edges of the parchment so it is the same size as the pizza to prevent the parchment from burning in the 450 degree oven on a pizza stone.
Since only one of us can have cheese we opted for a pizza with pepperoni and mushrooms. The pepperoni and sauteed mushrooms give the pizza a rich, satisfying flavor so you don't notice there isn't cheese. I like to serve the pizza with fresh basil, dried oregano, red pepper flakes and garlic salt.
