Review: Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Well it’s a different Good Friday this year…pandemic, everyone is to self isolate and home quarantine, so we decided to make homemade gluten free pizza!

I had a package of Bob’s Red Mill in the pantry. I followed the directions as per the bag. Simple ingredients needed: warm water, eggs and oil. It was easy to mix. * I did add a sprinkle of Italian seasoning to the dough just for added flavour. This is what it looked like just before covering to let rise:

After the 20 minutes (I left mine longer). As I was busy cooking bacon, chopping mushrooms; …prepping to top the pizza!

This is what it looked like after letting it rest:

I took my time with spreading out the dough and heavily greased my hands with butter. I decided to place a sheet of parchment paper over top of my pizza stone. I sprinkled corn meal over the paper.

I found the dough easily spread out over the stone/paper. I tried hard to make a thin crust.

I did not follow the recommendation to bake the crust for 7-9 minutes before putting on sauce and toppings.

I immediately just put sauce and toppings on. I preheated the oven to 425F. I baked for 25minutes and it came out lovely.

It’s a nice crust!

Easy to make!

The crust does have a very yeast flavour – so I do find adding a seasoning (such as Italian seasoning) to the dough helps.

But it is nice to make a homemade pizza every once in a while.
