What is a gluten free pizza
You can use whatever pizza dough you like fore this pizza. But if you want to try a gluten free dough, I have added the link to my recipe in the recipe card below.
So you ask what is in gluten free pizza dough. It’s basically the same as in a basic pizza dough but one uses gluten free flour. Think of all purpose, buckwheat and so on.
Chickpea and coconut flour are gluten free flours too, but I wouldn’t recommend to use any of these. Simply because it won’t work for the taste and texture. All what I can say it’s if you’re curious about these types of flours please use no more than 1/4 cup in your pizza base.
So does pizza contain gluten? Yes, because often it is made from whole wheat or white flour. If gluten free is not a thing for you, just go for whole wheat or a prepared dough.
Of course, you can also use my recipe. Just ditch the gluten free flour and use whole wheat flour instead.
Anyways, whatever you chose, you only need one flour for the base. Not 2, 3, or 5 flours, which is often the case in many other recipes.
Have you ever asked how is gluten free flour made?
I could tell you it’s pretty easy. Think about almonds, just put them in a blender or food processor and process until you have a texture like meal.
That’s all, couldn’t get any easier as it is. So if you ever think to make gluten free pizza, all you have to do is combine buckwheat or gluten free all purpose flour, water, olive oil, baking powder, season with a pinch salt. Knead the dough with your hands and form it.
“Where can I buy gluten free pizza bases” is something you gladly don’t need an answer for.
Making it yourself is just so much easier, cheaper and approachable than buying.
What to feed a vegetarian at a BBQ?
This Vegetarian BBQ Pizza is the answer.
Not all BBQ sauces you can buy are naturally vegan. Most sauces, but please check the ingredients when buying to be sure.
For me, I make my own BBQ sauce all the the time. It’s a Buffalo Homemade BBQ Sauce and pretty easy to make.
Just melt the cocoa butter in a casserole. I know it might sound a bit uncommon but that is what makes the real butter flavor.
Add tomato paste, vegan Worcester sauce, maple syrup, apple cider and hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook for around 4 minutes on medium heat, done.
How to make this Vegetarian BBQ Pizza
Roll out the pizza dough on a baking sheet prepared with parchment paper. Put the BBQ sauce on your rolled out pizza dough.
Ad all the veggies like chopped zucchinis, onions, optional corn and minced garlic. Bake for 15 minutes at 410°F.
After baking, cut the pizza into slices. Put some vegan cheese sauce on top of it. This sauce is so pretty easy to make. Just blend cashews, vegetable broth, and tahini!
This makes an lip-smacking dairy alternative for lunch, dinner, or date night. So good.
Show off your excitement. Cheers, Florian.
