I love pizza, don’t you?
Pizza is part of the typical American diet and something I did not want to give up once we went gluten free and started cleaning up our diet. There are a few good ready made pizza’s out there, but if you are a gluten free family of four going to Domino’s for gluten free pizza is almost as expensive as steak since The Bear can eat a whole pizza himself. Domino’s pizzas are a treat we indulge in when they have their 50% off deals though, they are really tasty! The Mellow Mushroom has pretty good gluten free pizza too. On my list of need to try is Little Aussie Bakery and BJ’s Brewhouse.
At home we have been experimenting with different crusts and I thought I would share the one we tried last week. Mama’s Pizza Crust Mix from Gluten Free Mama was a hit at our house. We bought ours through Azure Standard which does monthly drops around town (check them out here). The taste is good, but what I really like about it is the texture. The crust is soft and is similar to “real” pizza crust once it is cooked. The dough is really sticky when you first make it and at first I wasn’t sure if it would turn out.
The Muskrat is an expert crust maker so he put together the crusts and after it set and baked for 12 minutes I added my homemade pasta sauce, cheese and toppings, baked it for another 14 minutes and it was done. I need to remember to take photos of the process next time but here is the big boys pizza – it has organic hamburger meat added to the homemade sauce, cheese and pepperoni (I forgot to buy olives at the store, sorry Handsome!). The Bear and I eat plain cheese.
I also cut it before I took a photo so I don’t think I will win any food photography awards anytime soon. Something I have begun doing is making my own sauce for spaghetti, I make a huge batch and then freeze 2 or 3 pint mason jars of the sauce for pizza the next week. Fast and healthy because my sauce is filled with yellow squash, zucchini, organic spices, etc.
Have you tried any gluten free pizza crusts? If so which ones did you like or dislike?
