Home Made Gluten Free Pizza Crust
Gluten Free Pizza Dough and Crust
1 package yeast (approximately 1 tablespoon)
¾ cup milk (room temperature)
½ cup potato starch (not potato flour)
¾ cup corn starch (not corn flour)
1 tablespoon xanthan gum
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup shortening
You can almost taste your pizza!
Preheat oven to 375⁰F.
In a small bowl, combine yeast and milk. Stir to dissolve and set aside.
Combine all dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Cut in the shortening until pea sized crumbs appear. Slowly add in the milk and yeast mixture. Mix well. Dough will look wet, thick and pasty but it is quite workable if you spray your hands with non-stick spray or keep your hands damp with cold water. This dough is quite soft.
Roll or pat dough onto a lightly greased baking tin or pizza pan. For a thick crust, pat out dough to ¼” thickness or if you prefer a thin crust, pat dough out to ⅛” thickness. A 12” circle will produce a hand-tossed thickness – somewhere between not too thick and not too thin.
Top the pizza crust as desired. Bake 15 – 25 minutes until crust is lightly browned. Slice and serve hot.
