“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

Gluten Free- Night Shade Free- Dairy Free Pizza......
So I started to experiment....
I came up with a pizza sauce that I like. I could not tell it wasn't tomato based.... and neither could my family.
I used 1 small beet, roasted and shredded. 1 small carrot shredded. I sauteed the carrot in some olive oil until it was tender, and added the beet and all these spices.
(all to taste)
I put it all in a blender and blended it to death. :) And added water for better consistency.... ( to make it more spreadable)
The Pizza dough is easy.....
1 1/3 cup hot water
a packet of yeast
1 tsp sugar
mix all together and let it sit.
Add.... 1 tsp xantham gum
to 2 cups of brown rice flour and 1 cup of tapioca flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 TLB sugar
Mix all together.... and knead until very well kneaded...
about 5 minutes by hand....
Roll in olive oil and cover to let sit and rise
Spread in well greased pizza pan.
bake at 400º for about 10 minutes.
Add sauce, any toppings you like (that you can have)
and then add Rice Cheese.
I like the Mozarella rice cheese. It is very good.
Bake at 400º for about 20 minutes or until everything is nice, hot melted and the crust is duly browned. :)
I have not had pizza since last September because of a Night shade issue... ( no tomatoes, potatoes, or peppers of any kind ( except pepper corns) no eggplant, or paprika)
This was so fun to have once again! :)
I really love experimenting!
If you try it, drop a line and let me know! :)
