Gluten Free, Yeast Free, Vegan Pizza!

MMMMMM we LOVE pizza! This was the start to JPS birthday weekend and it started off pretty awesome indeed!

Pizza dough:
1 cup potato starch flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup brown rice flour 
1/2 cup white rice flour
teaspoon of salt
teaspoon of xantham gum (or guar) (optional)
1 tablespoon baking powder
5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3/4 cup of water 
1. Mix and sift together dry
2. Add half a cup of water and all the oil to dry mix. Stir unti combined, then knead, and form into a dough ball, adding more water as necessary. (Note: this won’t be stretchy like wheat dough. It will be more like pastry dough.) Only add as much water as you need. Too much and the crust will be crumbly.
3.  Flour pizza stone/pizza tray with rice flour. Put the ball of dough on your pizza stone/tray.
4. Press it down gently forming a flat ball working it out to form the perfect crust. Make crust twice as thick and I vote a couple inches deep. This pizza stuffed JP and I but not enough for left overs, a very imperfect size indeed so next time we'll double it and eat it twice :)

Brush with EVOO and bake for ten minutes on 420 degrees Fahrenheit.

Now lets make some pizza sauce! This is very important when you make this pizza sauce do not put it all on the pizza or JP won't eat your pizza! It was way too much sauce, he and I had to take some off. 

Pizza Sauce: 
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 4 fluid ounces warm water 
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
  • salt to taste
  • Add some chunky tomatoes maybe if you like

I used rice cheese for dairy free :)
We topped our pizza with spinach peppers and Oregano. It was sooooooo delicious and the sauce was nice and spicy!

Bon' Appetite! Enjoy!
