?_Lehmann: gluten-free pizza dough

Does anyone know of a supplier of frozen gluten-free pizza dough? A friend of mine was just diagnosed with this allergy and I would like to accomodate her and others like her but I don’t have the storage capacity or time to make my own gluten-free dough.

here’s one link…

pricey tho…

consider making a pizza using a corn tortilla…

Thanks for the link. But you aren’t kidding about pricey.

Some quick math…

To keep my current food cost on a medium pepperoni pizza (15.05%) I would have to charge $45.92 for the gluten-free version.

Here is a recipe from and article we did a few issues back…the article is at http://www.pmq.com/mag/200703/article.php?story=celiacs

I will also include a link for two about pizza and celiacs

Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Recipe
3/4 cup brown or white rice flour
1/3 cup potato starch
1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons guar gum
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon oil

Mix all dry ingredients - rice flour, potato starch, sugar, guar gum, yeast, sea salt and oregano. In an electric mixer bowl, combine water, vinegar and oil. Slowly add dry ingredients. Beat at medium speed for 3 minutes. Shape onto pizza pan. Bake in a 400-degree oven for 10 minutes.

Sauce
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
1 large garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 large tomatoes, peeled
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black peppercorn

Cook onion, green pepper and garlic in olive oil in saucepan until tender. Add rest of ingredients, breaking up tomatoes. Heat to boiling. Cover; reduce heat and simmer to desired thickness, about 20 to 30 minutes.

Yield: about 2 cups.

Assembly:
12-inch gluten-free crust
2/3 cup homemade sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
1 1/2 cups coarse chopped mushrooms
1 cup ground pork, precooked
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil

Place prebaked crust on a baking sheet. Lightly grease the pizza crust with olive oil before putting toppings on so they don’t seep into the crust.

Spread sauce on crust and build the pizza by adding cheese, precooked ground pork or other meat, cheese, mushrooms and spices or toppings of your choice.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 375 degrees.

(Note: Instead of baking, the pizza can be grilled. First, grill the crust alone on medium heat, then put on a work surface with grilled side up and assemble the pizza. Then grill on low heat for 7 minutes.)
