I can now cross one thing off my “to bake” list – pizza dough! With this gluten free thing, it seemed like the perfect time to tackle it!
Gluten-free pizza dough
- 2 1/2 cups gluten-free pizza and pastry flour (we used Orgran brand)
- 7g sachet dried instant yeast
- Pinch salt
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Sift flour into a bowl. Add yeast and salt. Stir to combine. Make a well in the centre. Add water and oil. Mix to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in a lightly greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Stand in a warm place for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until dough has doubled in size.
- Using your fist, punch dough down. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Divide dough in half.
This makes 2 pizza bases, which you can save for later use! perfect when its tough to feed yourself gluten free!
Now, it is certainly not the prettiest thing, but it was quite tasty! I just need to get a smaller rolling pin so I can spread it out properly!
I topped it with ham, tomato, spinach and mushroom – with Feta on my side and tasty cheese on Bens. (He hates feta!)
