Gluten Free Pizza Dough Recipe


Gluten Free Pizza Dough Recipe

We are going to a pizza party a plane ride away in Burlington, Vermont, so I am packing up premade pizza "dough" mixes to take with me so we can enjoy gluten free pizza at the party after skiing! The first  photo above is of the "pizza dough mixes" I am taking. Although you can buy Udi's pizza dough--and it is pretty tasty once you put toppings on it--I prefer this chewy, flavorful homemade crust.

PIZZA MIX:
Whisk together the following dry ingredients in a plastic bag or glass container
  • 1 1/3  cup Authentic Foods brown rice flour
  • 1/3  cup tapioca flour
  • 1/3 cup potato starch flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon xanthum gum
In a SEPARATE snack size ziplock put:
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 packet yeast.
_______________________________________________________________________________
DIRECTIONS:

Put
  • 3/4 cup very warm water (100º F to 110º F) in a bowl.
Sprinkle the contents of the small ziplock
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 packet yeast
over the warm water and let yeast "proof" for 5 minutes till bubbly

Pour "pizza dough mix" into a large bowl.

Add
  • proofed yeast
  • 2 large egg whites-at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Mix all together until combined.
Divide in 4 pieces for individual pieces and press into 8 inch rounds. For a larger pizza, press and flatten on parchment on a baking tray with your finger tips and a little flour. Or you can roll if you prefer. When the pizza is flat (about 1/8 inch thick) with a slightly thicker crust, cover with a layer of saran wrap. Let rest for 30 minutes. Then bake in a 450º F oven for 10 minutes.

When pizza crust is done, remove and you can put toppings on and rebake with toppings another 10 minutes.
