Gluten Free, Yeast Free Gourmet Pizza

Thanks for sharing!

Everyone loves pizza! Unfortunately, people with food allergies often have to avoid it!

By now you know that I am gluten intolerant, but you probably didn’t know that I also have other food allergies. After keeping a food diary I have discovered that I am also allergic to corn, bananas, kiwi, onions, garlic and peanuts. Other things that I tend to steer away from are yeast, soy and dairy. I notice that I just feel better when I ingest minimal amounts, or none at all. Therefore, since I do have so many issues with food, I am always modifying recipes and using ingredients I know are ‘safe’ for me.

Now, more than ever, there are more and more gluten-free products on the market. This makes cooking and baking so much easier. One of my new favorite recipes is this gluten-free, yeast-free gourmet pizza.

gluten free pizzaI made the pizza crust with King Arthur’s gluten-free baking mix. To make an extra large pizza crust I used 3 1/2 cups of the baking mix and just enough water to make it into a dough that was stiff enough that I could pat it out into a 10 1/2″ by 15 1/2 ” baking pan. I sprinkled a little extra baking mix on the dough as I smoothed the crust into the bottom of the pan. This kept the dough from sticking to my hands as I ‘worked’ the dough.  *To make a deep dish crust simply use more baking mix and add just enough water to make into dough or use a smaller pizza pan.  Baking time will vary.*

Spread the tomato mixture over the crust. I thought that perhaps this would have a super strong tomato flavor but it was actually the perfect blend.

gluten free pizzaI topped the tomato mixture with slices of cooked Canadian bacon, hamburger and nitrate free bacon.
Next, I added chopped red peppers and sliced fresh mushrooms.

We couldn’t wait for this to cool a little so we could eat it!
