For the Woman Who Needs a Quick Meal
So as I’ve already mentioned, I’m not one of those women who loves to cook. I’m always looking for ways to cook more efficient, budget friendly meals. And although we don’t live a perfectly Gluten Free lifestyle, we do try to limit gluten in our household. So about a year an a half ago my husband and I came across the Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix, 16-Ounce (Pack of 6) at a local grocery store. We decided to give it a try and ended up liking it so much that we began ordering the six-pack through Amazon (see link above). Soon homemade pizzas became a regular staple here at the Huck household. And the best part is that it takes 30 minutes or less to make.
What You’ll Need:
To use this product and make delicious pizzas all you need is: Olive Oil, 2 eggs, water, a box Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust (each box makes two crusts), Corn Starch and then the toppings of your choice.
Warning: the dough does come out very sticky. It’s not the kind that you will be able to toss around or even roll. I would suggest using a bit less water than instructed and having plenty of Corn Starch on hand. I typically spoon portions of the mix onto pre-greased pans, sprinkle liberal amounts of Corn Starch, and then flatten with my hand until I get the desired shape.
Pizzas I’ve Made:
Although I used a tomato sauce at first with my pizzas, I’ve since switched to using olive oil and garlic as my based. Then I cut large, fresh tomato slices and put them all around the crust, giving my pizza that tomato flavor. I also like to add fresh basil for most pizzas that we make. Then I top with cheeses, meets and veggies of our choice.
Pictured you’ll see a traditional tomato, mozzarella cheese, and basil pizza next to one topped with basil, mozzarella cheese, feta cheese, artichokes, and finely chopped chicken (I put a breast in my ninja for a bit). Usually I add Kalamata olives to the latter pizza but I was out this evening.
Another recipe we’ve done, using the same pizza crust, is a BBQ base with cheddar cheese, pineapple, bacon, and a variety of meats. All of the pizzas have turned out quite tasty and this has become a common meal in our household for family gatherings and informal entertaining.
I hope you enjoy and let me know what pizza creations your family comes up with 🙂
