Grain Free Pizza Crust

Our Spynx cat Inka, trying to be helpful while
my hubbie replaces the part in my oven.
 In celebration of my stove finally being fixed, I decided to make pizza. I whipped up a batch of regular yeasted wheat pizza dough for my boys (they still occasionally eat wheat), and then I made this lovely grain free pizza for my hubbie and I. This is more of a technique post than an actual recipe, but the link to the recipe for the "dough" can be found here.  My grain free bread dough is very versatile, and makes a pretty awesome pizza dough. It does require pre-baking as it doesn't have the elasticity of a regular wheat dough. I baked it on a large pan lined with parchment, topped it and then finished it up on my pizza stone in a hot oven. Yes, an extra step is involved, but to have a grain free pizza that you can pick up and eat with your hands...totally worth it!

Grain Free Pizza

1 batch of Grain Free Sandwich Bread, NOT cooked!
Toppings of choice

Preheat oven to 400F (put pizza stone in while preheating if using)

Mix batter for bread as per directions in the recipe. Instead of baking in bread pans, spread out evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet with an edge preferably. I find one batch nicely fills my pan that measures about 18"x 13". 

Bake for 15 minutes or until firm and starting to show some browning on the edges. Remove from oven and using parchment, lift off and set aside on wire racks until it is cool enough to handle. 

 Top with your favourite pizza toppings.

 Slide pizza peel under pizza, and carefully transfer into oven onto hot pizza stone***.

A Pizza Peel makes taking a whole pizza out
of a hot oven so much easier!!

 Cook for another 12-15 minutes or until the toppings are nice and hot and your cheese is melted, bubbly and starting to brown. 
Serve right away! (leftovers are awesome in lunch boxes!)

 ***(alternatively, slide pizza back onto baking sheet and bake in preheated oven if you are not using a pizza stone)
