Gluten-Free Pizza!!

IMG_2027Pizza!  Actual pizza and all gluten-free and shit, too!  I got this recipe off of sorghumcheckoff.com, modified it just a bit and it tasted really close to normal pizza you get from all those little places I haven’t been to in so many years.  I didn’t have a pizza pan so I just used a baking sheet, so the edges aren’t exactly even but looks aren’t everything!  It tasted great!

Ingredients:

1 1/3 cups sorghum flour – gluten-free, of course

2/3 cup tapioca flour – also gluten-free

4 tsp baking powder

2 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp cream of tartar

2 tsp xantham gum

1/2 cup butter

2/3 cup milk

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients – flours, baking powder, cream of tartar, sugar and xantham gum.  Stir until well combined. Add the butter a little bit at a time, mixing until it’s crumby.  Add the milk and mix until you have a dough ball.  On a cutting board, put a little flour and kneed the dough until it no longer sticks to your hands.  If you need to add more flour, go for it.

Place the dough on your pan.  I didn’t grease my baking sheet and it worked fine.  Flatten the dough either to the edges of your pizza pan or into something that resembles a circle – or just a general oblong shape, like I did.  Brush with some butter.  Bake for 12 minutes.  Remove the pizza, top it with sauce, cheese, whatever it is you want – as you see, I did just cheese and pepperoni with a little pizza sauce – and bake it for another 10 minutes.

The original recipe called for 10 to 15 minutes after topping it but I found ten made a pretty crispy crust in my oven.  It didn’t need any more time.  I may try this recipe out with some cornflour instead of sorghum and see what happens!
