We wait for the kids to come home or have a reason to make pizza and every time we do it’s delicious!
It brings back memories of the kids growing up and asking for pizza night. I’d make the dough, and each person would get their own ball of dough to create their own pizza! They’d roll it out, form it, par bake it, then put the toppings on and bake again! We all loved our time together and the yummy pizza
The white pizza crust (& the one my kids love) was an overnight rise and it worked out great!
2 cups fine white rice flour
(+white rice flour for kneading and 2-3TBS for end of mixing process)
2 cups Tapioca flour ( I love to use half tapioca starch /flour and the other half Expandex tapioca starch. It makes for such a fabulously stretchy and fluffy crust!!
3 1/2 teas xanthan gum
1 teas salt
4 egg whites
3 TBS shortening in 1/2 cup hot water
2 TBS fast acting yeast
1 TBS sugar
1 cup warm water
Add sugar and yeast to 1 cup water and mix.
*Add dry ingredients to stand up mixer
*add egg whites
*next add shortening and water
*add yeast when has at least doubled in size
*Mix until smooth (about 3 minutes)
*Add a tiny bit (~ 1 TBS) of white flour at a time to mixture until dough pulls away from the sides of mixing bowl.
*Scrape the dough out and place into into a bowl a bowl sprinkled with rice flour. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, placed in the refrigerator overnight.
*Preheat the oven to 400°
* knead the dough into a ball
*roll to the shape you want
*place in the oven for 7 minutes (a minute or two longer if you have a very thick crust)
* remove the crust(s) from the oven and place your sauce and toppings on.
*Put back into the 400° oven for at least 10 - 15 minutes and until the cheese is golden brown.
This recipe should make at least 2 decent size pizza crusts depending on the thickness, possibly 3 if you prefer thin crust pizza!
On my YouTube channel, Glutenfree and Me, I have this recipe which I posted many years ago and I also have up my "Alternative" pizza crust recipe which uses a variety of healthy high protein flours!
