Kick that take away craving by making your OWN pizza that tastes great and lets you add all your favourate toppings without the extra cost!
- 140 grams brown rice flour (1 cup)
- 60 grams tapioca flour (1/2 cup)
- 40 grams arrowroot starch (1/3 cup) or ¼ cup potato starch.
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1 tablespoon gluten free baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup light tasting oil
- ¾ cup filtered water
- ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- toppings of your choice
The Raw Food Coach recommends toppings such as: spinach, feta or goats cheese. sundried tomatoes, olives, pineapples, peppers, fresh basil and garlic or chili flakes
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and wet in a separate bowl. Combine.
- Mix and form into a ball. Flour your baking mat and roll out dough. Bake for 12 minutes. The crust should be on a mat and then placed on a rack to bake. (If you don't like using silicone baking mats, roll out the dough on parchment paper and then bake on a baking sheet).
- After the crust bakes for 12 minutes, transfer crust from the mat to the cooling rack to cool.
- Build the pizza. See our dairy free tomato sauce recipes in our recipes section or facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/TheRawFoodCoach/ For dairy free cheese use gostd, sheep or feta cheese. Vegan cheeses are also available in health stores. Keep the crust on the rack. After piling on your topping, bake another 10-12 minutes (on the rack). The longer you bake the harder the crust will get, so be careful. We like the texture at the 12 minute mark.
- Remove crust from oven and allow to cool on the cooling rack it was baked on. When cool, transfer to a cutting board (or cut on a mat)
1. If you make the crust too thick it will have a biscuit texture. Go for a thin crust for a more traditional texture.
2. Caution: don't let the dough sit too long in the bowl after you combine the ingredients, as it will start to "grow" from the apple cider vinegar and the baking powder and get really soft. Add as much flour as your need to roll it out. The more flour you add, the more it will come together for and you'll be able to roll it out.
3. You can add spices and flavours to the dough, such as garlic granules. oregano, Italian Seasoning, onion granules, etc.
