Every year my family packs up and lives in a Southern California hotel room for 4 weeks for my husband’s job. To some this may sound like a dream come true; eating out every day, housekeeping makes your bed and enjoying 75 degree weather when it’s in the teens at home. There of course are some perks, but after about 7 days the novelty wears off. Especially when your trying to eat gluten free & corn lite. My daughter and I do not feel very good by the end, but now we are finally home and I’m back in my kitchen trying new recipes and cooking with whole food again.
My 2 year old just discovered that she likes pizza. However, being that she has a corn intolerance getting pizza at a restaurant is tricky. The only restaurant I know she can eat pizza without any issues is California Pizza Kitchen. But the regular dough at CPK is not gluten free and the gluten free dough has corn in it. When we are home I want to make something everyone can eat; pizza dough that is gluten free and corn free, not to mention tastes good! Tonight I adjusted a few ingredients to my old gluten free pizza dough recipe to make it corn free while still maintaining a consistency that is easy to roll out just like the gluten filled kind. I must say, I am pretty excited about this new recipe!
Gluten Free & Corn Free Pizza Dough (Thick or Thin Crust)
Prep Time: 15 min Rest/Rise Time: 30 min Bake: 400 degrees
- Mix that together and set aside for 5 min
- Mix all ingredients together loosely and pour in your yeast mixture
- Knead until all ingredients are well incorporated
- Cover with a few kitchen towels and let rise in a warm place for 30 min.
- Dough should not be sticky, it should ball up smoothly
- Once the dough has rested and slightly risen sprinkle counter with extra GF flour and roll out.
I like to make mini pizzas for my family because everyone likes different stuff. This recipe will make about 4 thin crust personal pizzas or 1 large pizza.
- Spray or grease your baking pan
- Par bake the crust for about 3-5 min. then add toppings and bake for 10 min. or until golden brown.
Now you can safely say….tonight is pizza night!
