RE: Gluten Free Bread/Pizza Crust (Follow-Up #3)

Did you have a problem patting the dough out? If so, cover the dough ball with a sheet of plastic wrap to make patting it out easier and you can get it as thin as you want it. I agree - add some xanthan gum - if you can tolerate it. The chia and flax will also help in a similar fashion if you can't use xanthan gum, and may need to add more flaxmeal.

I made this paleo (and gluten-free) recipe into 5 small crusts yesterday and put them in the freezer for individual pizzas. I found the recipe on-line and I use them for my friend when we have a pizza night (she is diabetic and watches her carbs), but hubby likes them too for a lunch pizza.

2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese (I used Olive Garden Italian 4-cheese mixture)
1/2 c. almond flour (I used homemade from making almond milk)

Mix together. You can make one large pizza crust in a large non-stick pan, but I made mine using 1/2 c. of the mixture in a small pan. Pat the mixture into the pan and heat on medium heat until it begins to set and brown. Once set, work your spatula around the crust while it finishes cooking. Flip and brown the other side. Cool on a rack. It will crisp-up while cooling. Top per usual and bake in a 400-degree oven until the toppings are heated through and any cheese used is melted.

I have not made a gluten free pizza dough, but have made gluten free pie and pastie doughs. I would try adding some xantham gum (sort of does the job of gluten, use 2 tsp per cup of flour) and then letting the dough rise (you have the yeast, the xantham gum will help it retain the gas and thus rise). Should make a lighter crust.

Gluten Free Bread/Pizza Crust

posted by: cookie8 on 01.30.2013 at 11:04 am in Cooking Forum

I made pizza yesterday and couldn't find a gluten free recipe that really caught my eye so this is what I came up with (approximately)
1 cup water
2 tsp yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup br. rice flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 tbsp ground flax
1/4 cup ground chia

So, while it was good, it was very dense. I guess I could add some more spices and make a cracker bread. Do you think you could get a lighter (at least a less dense) bread using these items? Thanks.

Oh oh, family party and newly diagnosed Celiac

posted by: eandhl on 12.03.2011 at 04:07 pm in Cooking Forum

We have many family members with restrictions and seem to work around it okay for gatherings. Generally for this occasion I have meat lasagna, veggie lasagna, this one is also done low fat, 1 tossed and one cabbage salad. Various appetizers. Daughter is newly diagnosed with Celiac disease (gluten free) and we are just starting to learn. Any ideas what I can make for her that will sort of go with above?

What keeps soapstone darker longer. . .The answer! ! !

posted by: florida_joshua on 10.24.2007 at 04:47 pm in Kitchens Forum

So I did a little test to answer the question.

The products:

Clapham's Beeswax Salad Bowl Finish
Bee's Oil
Regular Mineral Oil
Mystery Oil

First a brief discription (my opinion)

Clapham's: It is a paste, inbetween a wax and a liquid. Goes on easy and feels amazing after you put it on. On the touch catagory it is the best of the bunch.

Bee's Oil: It is a wax. A little harder to get on but if you heat it up it would be easier. Has stay power. This is at the top when it comes to keeping the patina on the stone.

Regular Mineral Oil: Needs no discription. It's easy to apply. Would keep a bottle around for those lazy days. Feels oily compared to the wax or paste. That feel goes away quickly though (whithin a hour or two if you wipe it down with a rag).

Mystery Oil: It is a liquid similar to the mineral oil. Not so crazy about the warning lable. Feels a little bit more oily than the mineral oil at first. Seems to react similar to the mineral oil. In my opinion I would rather use the mineral oil just because of convienience considering the warning about it being combustable.

The proof:

This is unoiled stone.

I then oiled it twice more over the next 2 days and waited 4 days to see what we had. Here it is.

The mystery oil evaporated the quickest, then the mineral oil, contiuing on to the clapham's, and finally the Bee's oil.

I could continue the process but I do believe that you will continue to see the same results. Over time I think you wouold spend less time applying with the wax products but I would keep the mineral oil around for quick touchups or lazy days.

This test also gives people a good idea of how soapstone will react when it is installed in their home. This process of oiling and or waxing lessens with time. Each variety of soapstone can react differently as well. This means some stone evaporates the oil or wax products off quicker and or slower. Some people leave it unoiled some oil it often. Some like it inbetween and only oil it sometimes. . . So it really is up to the owner to choose how the stone fits your lifestyle. I still have not figured out how describe to someone who does not know about soapstone in one or two paragraphs. I know it sounds cheesy but I feel it's an experience. If you don't touch it, feel it, live with it, you'll never really understand it.
