Okay, so this may seem off topic. But I’m doing a post about pizza today. Reason being I’ve been wanting to do a post about this particular pizza crust for weeks and I finally got a good shot last week. I also thought that people need some ideas for dinner prior to Thanksgiving so that they have the energy to do all the shopping and cooking this week!
I’ve been making this pizza crust for several weeks now and I really enjoy it. My husband has confessed (a few times) that he misses the yeast-y gluten-free pizza dough I used to make. I agree, it was tasty and tasted just like the real thing.
But since going grain free, yeast free and sugar free, the pizza crust I’ve been making marches to the beat of a different drum…
But it really is delicious in my opinion. And if you can’t have yeast or grains or sugar, it is really a great alternative.
The best part of the recipe is it is so easy! No waiting for it to rise. No kneading. Only four ingredients!. Just mix and pat into a pan and then bake it. It’s is feasible to make the whole pizza for dinner in 45 minutes depending on what toppings you use. But you can also make the crusts over the weekend, prebake and then freeze them for later if time is an issue for you during the week.
I originally got this recipe made with hazelnut flour here. But I used almond flour instead and I really like the texture. I’ve also used almond meal and it also worked well. It tasted more like a wheat crust.
This time I used the pizza stones that my mom gave me at least a year ago. They are little so you have to make little pizzas. The recipe made three small individual sized pizzas and the picture above is of the last piece before it got eaten for lunch the next day.
The pizza stones did make a difference I have to say. It was a bit crispier but still “chewy” on the inside. It had a great texture to it.
To get the recipe, visit the Grain Free Foodies blog. The only thing I did differently was change the flour to almond flour.
Enjoy and have a blessed and beautiful Thanksgiving this week!
