Hi Missy,

I bought your book after reading few recipes and I am trying to find your pizza dough recipe... Thanks!

Dear Lori,

Here's my recipe for Gluten Free Pizza Crust from my book, Sneaky Chef to the Rescue. 

Enjoy in good health!

GLUTEN-FREE PIZZA CRUST

As I’ve said before, the true taste test for a good GF product is whether non-GF kids like it too. That also solves another problem for mom, since she can finally make one recipe for the entire family and not single out her allergic child with a separate recipe. My Sammy, who fortunately is not allergic to gluten, proclaimed “oh, yeah, that’s delicious” when I asked her to give this a try – and that was even before I added the sauce and cheese!

Makes one medium pizza crust

1 tablespoon olive oil
½ cup Chickpea Puree (see Make-Ahead Recipe below)
1 large egg
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon each oregano, onion and garlic powder
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese (*substitute rice or soy cheese if dairy allergy)
½ cup GF flour (such as garbanzo flour or rice flour)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and brush the olive oil in the center of a baking sheet.

In a mixing bowl, combine Chickpea Puree with the egg, salt, oregano, onion and garlic powder, and Parmesan cheese. Add the GF flour and mix until well blended. Lightly oil your hands then remove the mixture from the bowl and shape into a large ball.

Place the dough on the oiled cookie sheet and, using the palm of your hand, press the dough with the palm of your hand into an imperfect, rustic flat circle or oval shape. Don’t cover the entire baking sheet. Spray the top side of the dough generously with oil.

Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from oven and save (wrapped in foil) in the refrigerator for use within 3 days or proceed to make pizza immediately.

Make-Ahead Recipe #8: Chickpea Puree

1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas* (garbanzo beans)
2 to 3 tablespoons water
  *If you prefer to use whole beans, soak overnight and cook as directed

Rinse and drain the chickpeas and place them in the bowl of your food processor. Add 1 tablespoon of the water, then pulse on high until you have a smooth puree. If necessary, use a little more water, a tiny bit at a time, until the mixture smoothes out and no pieces or full chickpeas are visible.

This recipe makes about 1 cup of puree; double it if you want to store another cup. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or you can freeze 1⁄4-cup portions in sealed plastic bags or small plastic containers.
