Pizza for Dinner...

Pizza is a very rare thing at our house! Being gluten and dairy free we don't eat pizza...Elsie has never tasted before even! "Glutino" does make a GF/CF spinach pizza that we have tried before...but it has soy cheese and no it just isn't "real" pizza. Today I made a GF crust from scratch...and topped the pizza with lots of sauce, peppers, onions, spinach,pepperoni and mozzarella flavored rice cheese. It was so good! The cheese tasted no different than regular mozzarella! This is something we will certainly be having again!
We topped the pizza with fresh Parmesan...and Elsie had to grate her own!
I think Elsie enjoyed her first pizza! I have plans to make several crusts,bake them and put them in the freezer so we can have pizza more often!

I will share the recipe for those who want to try...I found the recipe online...but I don't remember what site...
*1 Tbsp yeast
*1 1/2 c. warm rice milk
*1 tsp sugar
**mix together and let rest until bubbly...meanwhile mix together the following:
*1 1/3 c. Brown Rice Flour
*1 c. Cornstarch
* 2 tsp xantham gum
*seasonings...I added Italian, garlic powder and sea salt
**add 2 tsp olive oil
and 2 tsp cider vinegar to the yeast mixture...mix well and pour into flour
** Mix all together and press into oiled pizza pan. Be sure to oil fingers when pressing into pan! I always bake the dough almost all the way than add toppings and finish baking...Enjoy...this is the best!

mmm, looks really good. i'll have to add this recipe to my file.

i think elsie is going to love to both cook & bake - since both you & jon enjoy it so much and allow her to "help" with the food prep already. i think that's great.

i adore her big eyes...
