Delight in a fresh from the oven pizza with your favorite toppings on a this traditional chewy, bready crust. Made with our Bread Mix.
- 1 bag (3-1/2 cups) Pamela's Gluten-Free Bread Mix
- 2-1/4 tsp active dry yeast or 1 yeast packet 7g (enclosed in 19 oz mix)
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1-1/2 cups warm water
- Optional: Add 2 tsp Italian herbs
- Optional: Add 1/2 cup grated cheese to dough
Yield: Two 10-12 inch crusts, or 3 to 4 smaller personal sized crusts
Use a HEAVY DUTY STAND MIXER with whisk attachment. Combine dry mix, yeast, oil, and water (eggs are not used) and mix on medium for 2 minutes. Pour 1/2 dough onto a heavily greased or parchment-covered baking sheet (for added texture, sprinkle the surface with cornmeal). To spread the dough into a crust shape, use oil on your hands and dough to keep it from sticking. Let rest one hour.
Preheat oven to 375°. Bake for 25-30 minutes on the lower rack, then add sauce and toppings. Continue baking for 10 minutes, until toppings are hot and melted. The pizza dough will puff when baking. CRISPIER PIZZA: Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes on parchment on a preheated pizza stone in the center of the oven, add sauce and toppings, then continue baking until toppings are hot.
FREEZING: Partially bake crusts for 20 minutes, wrap after cooling, then freeze. Remove from freezer, add sauce & toppings, then bake in preheated 375° oven for 10-15 minutes.
#1. Ready-made pasta sauces make a quick pizza sauce and come in a variety of flavor combinations.
#2. Try adding seasonings or cheese to the dough for interesting flavors.
