This weekend my love and I had a couples night and we made gluten free pizzas. I was a little worried because it is very difficult to find a tasty crust that has no wheat. One of my girlfriends luckily found an amazing recipe that actually tastes good! So I thought I would share with all my wheat allergy followers and of course those who want to cut gluten out for the health. (This crust recipe is not my creation sadly, recipe link ). The recipe for the crust is in Portuguese and English below.
1 e 1/2 xícara de polvilho doce
1 e 1/2 xícara de farinha de arroz ou creme de arroz
1 colher de sopa de açúcar
1 colher de chá de sal
1/2 xícara + 1/4 de xícara de água morna
10 gramas de fermento Biológico
2 ovos levemente batidos
3 colheres de sopa de azeite extra virgem.
Ligar o forno em mais ou menos 250°C.
Hidratar o fermento e o açúcar com 1/4 da água morna, então deixe esta mistura de lado enquanto você começa a fazer a massa.
Em uma vasilha grande coloque a farinha, polvilho, sal, 1/2 xícara de água morna e os ovos levemente batidos. Depois de colocar os ingredientes, misture tudo.
Quando os ingredientes estiverem misturados, adicione o azeite e a mistura feita anteriormente que estava de lado, aí então misture mais um pouco.
Agora coloque a mão na massa e misture tudo até que ela fique uniforme. Quando ela estiver lisa e uniforme, sua massa estará pronta 😀
Unte a forma de pizza com um pouco de azeite, e estique a massa na própria forma (na espessura que desejar)
Quando a massa estiver esticada, coloque um pano limpo sobre ela e deixe descansar por 20 minutos
Após os vinte minutos de descanso, é só pre-assar a massa por mais 10 minutos.
Agora é só preparar o recheio da sua pizza e colocar no forno por mais ou menos 20 minutos ou até que o queijo esteja bem derretido!
Bom apetite 😀
1 and 1/2 cup of sweet tapioca flour
1 and 1/2 cup of rice flour or rice cream
1 table spoon of sugar
1 tea spoon of salt
1/2 cup + 1/4 cup of warm water
10 grams of biological yeast
2 lightly beaten eggs
3 table spoons of extra virgin olive oil
Switch on the oven at about 250 ° C.
Moist the yeast and sugar with 1/4 of the warm water, then leave this mixture aside as you begin to make dough.
In a large bowl place the flour, tapioca flour, salt, 1/2 cup warm water and the eggs, lightly beaten. After putting the ingredients, mix everything.
When the ingredients are mixed, add the olive oil and the previously made mixture that was on the side, then mix a little more.
Now put your hand in the dough and mix everything until it is even. When it is smooth and uniform, your dough will be ready. You may need to add flour if it is too sticky.
Grease the pizza pan with a little olive oil, and form the dough into a circular shape to fill the pan (to the thickness you desire).
When the dough is stretched, put a clean cloth over it and let sit for 20 minutes
After the twenty minutes rest, pre-bake the dough for another 10 minutes.
Now just prepare the filling of your pizza and put in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the cheese is well melted!
In the photos within this post I made one of my favorite types of pizzas. I started with a layer of tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, sliced tomatoes, shredded chicken that was precooked, then finished it with basil and oregano. It was so delicious!
We also made a very Brazilian pizza… a dessert pizza. I have never had a pizza with cheese, chocolate and strawberries on it! I was very weirded out and quite skeptical, but I tried it…. and loved it! I could not believe how good it was! If you have never had, I insist that you try.
