There was a time when I was paying a little over $2 a piece for a frozen gluten free personal sized pizza crusts. This drove my thrifty side mad so I was forced to find an alternative. I wanted something easy that require few ingredients and could be in the oven to prebake in 15 minutes or less. I tried a couple recipes but the one I liked best was this one. I leave out the sugar and I use plain white rice flour.
I like to add a lot of seasoning. Cracked pepper is very good in pizza crust. This dough is not doughy. It has almost a slimy quality to it, but it is just sticky enough that spreading it with your hands (as suggested in the recipe) is no good.
|I prefer to use just white rice flour rather
than a gluten free mix.
|The dough should have a consistency
of thick mashed potatoes.
|I use a silicon spatula to spread the dough.|
The finished crust is dense but not hard and has a good flavor. It is a thin crust pizza. If you like a crunchy crust you can bake it longer before adding toppings.
|Poking the crust with a fork keeps it from puffing up. I do this about 5 minutes after it has been in the oven. Be sure to generously grease the pan, or it may not come off.|
