Okay guys this was almost another fail. I'll show you pictures at the end. You might wonder why I would attempt another GF thing like this, so closely on the heels of the GF cinnamon rolls that almost made me forget what day it was (Christmas). Well, it's from the Simply Gluten Free Magazine my sister gave me this fall (the fall baking special) and almost everything in this magazine that I've tried I have been really pleased with. And, I had bought the stuff for pizza a while back and never made it yet. AND the two GF pizza dough mixes I have bought and thought were okay (just okay) were $6 for one and $10 for the other (both of them made two crusts each). And premade GF pizza? Don't even bother. Pizza Hut has a GF pizza that will do in a pinch (like if everybody else in your family is getting pizza and you don't want to just watch them eat) but the one in our town closed. All these things are the driving force behind me trying this recipe. First the recipe, then the pictures, so I can share my thoughts at each step without interrupting the flow of the recipe...
Gluten Free Pizza Dough
1 ½ cups gluten free all purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 ½ tsp xanthan gum
1 tbsp active dry yeast
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
½ tsp kosher or fine sea salt
½ tsp sugar or honey
2 tbsp olive oil
2/3 cup very warm water (about 110*)
Preheat oven to 425.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with whisk attachment. Mix on low until combined. Scrape down bowl once. Turn mixer to high and mix for 3 minutes.
Dust work surface generously with GF flour. Knead dough a few times until it is smooth and no longer sticky. Press dough into pizza pan or baking sheet (use a rolling pin if needed).
Bake for 10 minutes.
Add toppings and bake an additional 18-25 minutes.
Ok so after I combined all the ingredients in the mixing bowl and mixed it on high for 3 minutes, this is what it looked like:
