On Sunday as my youngest son and his girlfriend were back home after there final Uni exams. I decided to make some gluten free yeast free pizzas for lunch.
Following the instructions on the back was very straight forward.
I used both packets of Isabel’s Naturally free from pizza base mix, which makes four medium size pizzas. The dough came together very easily and just needed a knead until the dough was silky and pliable.
I divided the dough into four equal portions, and rolled out using a little corn flour into pizza shapes. I’m sure with practise I can make them look slightly neater. But for my first attempt they weren’t too bad. The Pizza’s then went in a hot oven for 5 mins on each side, using good non stick pizza trays.
I used a mix of tomato puree and passata to make the tomato base. The advice on the back was to avoid a tomato sauce with too much moisture. After 10 mins in the oven, we all added our own favourite toppings. mozzarella, basil, italian salami and ham and cheddar cheese. We all had fun decorating our pizza’s . The family’s pizza’s turned out much better than mine.
I do like my cheese, so mine was definitely cheese heavy.
We all drizzled basil infused olive oil on our pizza’s . They looked good enough to eat already!
The pizza’s went in a hot oven for a further 10 mins or so. We watched them carefully, checking they did not burn around the edges.
Success! the pizza’s came out looking amazing and smelling terrific.
Without prompting the family said that thought they tasted as good as regular pizza, if not better! Strong words from two Uni students who have sampled a few pizza’s in their three years. Both said they would choose to make them again. Result! Much nicer not having gluten pizza’s and flour in the house.
I have stock piled lots of boxes of Isabel’s pizza mix’s in my pantry for the future . They will be great for the occasional treat supper or quick tasty lunch.
Can definitely recommend.
