LA PIZZA

I don't want to talk about the Oscars. If you watched, great (rah!). And if not, well...there's always next year. And then there's Google--you can just search last night's winners if you're really curious and/or want to be able to carry a conversation at the water cooler this afternoon. (Ahem) Instead, I want to share a recipe. It's not my own, it's from Bob's Red Mill. But most importantly, it turned out really well and was delicious, too! The recipe is for Gluten-Free Pizza Crust and uses a garbanzo-fava bean flour mix. It's a must-try.




Gluten-Free Pizza Crust
thanks to Bob's Red Mill

1 tbsp. gluten-free dry yeast
2/3 cup garbanzo-fava flour mix
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 tbsp. dry milk powder
2 tsp. xantham gum
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. unflavoured gelatin powder
1 tsp. Italian herb seasoning
2/3 cup warm water
1/2 tsp. agave nectar
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. cider vinegar
cooking spray


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a medium bowl, mix first eight ingredients (dry)  on low speed using regular beaters. 


2. Add warm water, agave, oil, and vinegar. Beat on high for 3 minutes. Add water if dough is too stiff. The dough will resemble soft bread dough.


3. Put mixture onto 12-inch pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle extra flour on the dough, then press the dough into the pan.


4. Bake the crust for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, top with your favourite add-ons, and bake for another 20 to 25 minutes.


Try This: I actually did not use either the dry milk powder or the gelatin powder, and the crust still turned out great!


For toppings, I used pesto, fresh ricotta cheese, roast asparagus, caramelized onions, and spicy garlic sausage--what are your favourite pizza toppings?


Oh yeah, you could also just purchase Bob's Pizza Crust Mix.


Ah, yes. And for the record, I did watch the Oscars (while, of course, R and I enjoyed this delicious pizza). 


Bon app├ętit!
