Monday night cooking experiment

I’ve had some tomato sauce in the fridge for a little while now that I have been meaning to use up.  I decided that a great way to do this would be to make a gluten-free pizza!  The only problem is that I didn’t feel like spending $8 to get gluten free pizza crusts at the grocery store.  So I decide to make one myself.  I tried looking up recipes online but I couldn’t find any that had ingredients I already had at home.  Thus, to my experiment…

I have a bag of Pamela’s gluten free baking mix (it makes delicious waffles and biscuits by the way) so I just mixed some of that with some water to make a simple dough, added spices, and spread it out on a cooking sheet with olive oil.  It is sort of starting to look like a gluten free pizza so we will see what happens.  I am a little worried that the dough will be too plain.  I may try adding an egg or some butter to it next time.

I’m a little worried this is going to taste like cardboard, but here goes nothing…

Tastes like pizza to me!!!!!!  Plus having it with a Canadian gluten free beer (brand is Glutenberg) doesn’t hurt either.  Hooray for pizza and beer.  Green’s gluten free beers are still my favorite but I do like that there are new ones for me to try here.  Plus, Green’s is a Belgian brand so it’s not really a fair fight.

    Looks pretty good to me. Did you write down the recipe so that you can reproduce the dough???

    I just mixed the baking mix with water until it was a good consistency then added “italian spice,” rosemary, sage, and thyme. Cooked it at 450 for about 10-15 minutes, then added sauce and cheese and cooked for another 10-15 minutes.
