Gluten Free Pizza Night!

Brad and I had such a relaxing weekend. Saturday, we lounged around the house watching TV and debating what yummy meal we wanted to make on Sunday, while a roasted chicken was cooking in the oven. The chicken smelled delicious and we couldn't wait to reuse it for another dish. After debating, we settled on PIZZA!! I've had a pack of Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Dough mix. It was about time I used it.

We popped over to the grocery store to pick up some toppings and couldn't wait to get to cooking. We decided to head out during the day Sunday to watch some football so before we left I prepped the dough.

1 16 oz package of Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix (3 1/4 cups)
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 eggs
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 yeast packet (enclosed in mix)


1) Preheat oven to 425°F.
2) In a large bowl, combine water and yeast. Let stand a few minutes. Add eggs and oil to mixture and blend briefly. Add GF Pizza Crust Mix and blend about a minute on medium speed, until combined.
3) Leave dough in bowl, split in half, cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise 20 minutes.
4) Place dough on greased pizza pans. Using wet hands, spread out dough to cover the full pizza pan. Bake without topping for 7-9 minutes.
5) Remove from oven, cover with favorite sauce and toppings. Bake for 15-18 minutes.

The dough kit makes two 12-inch or one- 16-inch pizza crusts. Dough can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and store in plastic bag. When ready to bake, take dough out of refrigerator and allow to rest 30 minutes. Spread dough onto greased pizza pan and bake as directed.

I prepped the dough and tossed it in the fridge while we went out for the games. When we came was pizza time!! While our chicken was roasting on Saturday, I tossed in a head of garlic for roasting. For my pie, I spread a thin layer of olive oil on the crust then smeared the roasted garlic, followed by loads of mozzarella, chicken a little more garlic and a balsamic glaze. It was absolutely amazing!! I loved every last bite.

Brad opted for a more manly route and started with a thin schemer of tomato sauce, followed by mozzarella, chicken, cut up chorizo, red onion and a few dollops of BBQ sauce on top. I have to say, as much as I'm not a fan of BBQ pizza, I did enjoy a bite of his.

We were both very pleased with the taste of the crust as well! If you hadn't told us it was gluten free, we wouldn't have known. It was just as great as any other home made dough. We both give Bob's Red Mill's dough an A+!!! We will definitely be buying it again. It's so much fun to play in the kitchen together, especially when the end results is pure deliciousness!
