Pizza Night Take 3
As I've said in earlier posts, I am constantly searching for the perfect gluten free pizza. Pizza was one of my favorite meals before my Celiac diagnosis and the craving gets pretty strong.
This past weekend I was in Charlotte for my sister's baby shower. In addition to the aforementioned donuts, I also found a gluten free pizza dough at Earth Fare.
However, this was not a pizza dough mix. Nor was it a pizza ready made crust. This was a gooshy, pliable pizza dough BALL. The company is Gillian Foods, which I had never seen. I was very anxious to try it.
So my first dinner back was pepperoni pizza...homemade! My boyfriend Parrish worked as a pizza thrower in high school, so I left the dough shaping to him. The dough wasn't as "wet" as other...glutenous doughs, but it wasn't as dry as bag mixes. We topped it with Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce, Organic Valley Mozzarella Cheese, and Hormel Pepperoni Slices. Yum!
It turned out pretty good. It's no Pizza Hut thin crust, but it's the best I've had so far. Next time I'll try brushing the crust edges with olive oil to crisp it up a bit, but overall it was a pretty good dinner! Served with a glass of red wine, even better!
