  • 2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

1/6 of crust (calculated without toppings) equals 142 calories, 2 g fat (trace saturated fat), 1 mg cholesterol, 223 mg sodium, 30 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 4 g protein. Diabetic Exchange: 2 starch.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the tapioca flour, milk powder, xanthan gum, gelatin, Italian seasoning, vinegar, oil, salt, sugar and 2/3 cup brown rice flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining brown rice flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 12, 2013

We made this tonight for the first time and the kids loved it! We have only 2 members of the family that are gluten free, but everyone said it was the best we had made so far. I did substitute an egg for the gelatin as the other reviewers suggested and it turned out soft on the inside and crusty on the outside! I didn't have any dairy free powdered milk so I substituted part of the warm water with warm rice milk. It tasted great! We also had to double the recipe to feed our 6 person family. I will definitely be keeping this recipe and using it frequently. Thank you!

YES!! Finally a GF pizza crust I like. The only change I made is I used buttermilk powder instead of dry milk and also an egg instead of the gelatin because thats what I had on hand. Turned out great, even my son who isn't crazy about GF foods loved it!

Thanks for a great recipe.

MY REVIEW

I didn't have gelatin the first time I made this dough, so I added an egg. It turned out very well. I was pleased with how it rolled out. The second time I made this dough I added the gelatin and it didn't turn out as well. It was tough to work with and dry even though I added a little more water. It seems that the wet to dry ingredient ratio is wrong. I will make this again, but with the egg instead of the gelatin.
