We’ve made my gluten free (GF) pizza crust with our favorite Italian flavors. Now, we’re heading to the Far East for a flavor explosion and some serious Delicious Medicine. The best news on this fantastic flavor journey; no oven required. Put your frozen Gf crust right on the grill.
Thai Inspired Crust
- 1-1 1/2 Cup gluten free Thai Beer room temp, add slowly (I use Singha)
- 2 tsps Agave or sweetener of your choice
- 2 tsps Dry Yeast
- 3 cups GF all-purpose flour
- 2 tsps Non-Aluminum Baking Powder
- 2 tsps Ground Flaxseed
- 2 tsps Salt
- 2 1/2 tsps Baking Powder
- 1/4 cup Sesame Oil *plus 1 Tbls for proofing bowl
- 1 Tbls Chia Seeds, bloomed in 1/4 cup water
- 1 Tbls Toasted Sesame Seeds
- Cornmeal for your second kneading (optional)
Pour one cup beer into the bowl of your stand mixer or large mixing bowl. Stir in Agave or sweetener of your choice. Sprinkle yeast over top and allow to bloom.
Place paddle attachment on mixer and start on first speed position. Slowly add flour and remaining ingredients, working all ingredients together. Add more beer as necessary to bring dough together.
Change paddle attachment to your dough hook. Knead dough for about six minutes or until smooth and dough will stretch without breaking. The dough should be plump and slightly sticky. Oil clean bowl with remaining sesame oil and roll dough ball over in bowl to coat completely. Cover with damp kitchen towel or plastic wrap and place in the warmest area of your house until dough has doubled, approximately one hour.
Uncover and punch down dough, divide in half and knead with a little bit of cornmeal on your counter. Roll out, place on pizza stone or sheet pan and bake 8 minutes. Pull from oven top, continue to bake for 15 minutes and serve. Or, cool, wrap and freeze.
Peanut Pizza Sauce
- 3 Tbls Coconut Milk
- 1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
- 3 Tbls Rice Vinegar
- 3 Tbls Tamari or Soy Sauce
- 2 Tbls Honey
- 1 Tbls ketchup
- 2 cloves Garlic, minced
- 2 tsps Ginger, peeled and grated
- pinch Red Pepper Flakes
- Pinch White Pepper
Whisk everything together and use as your pizza sauce or sauce for a noodle bowl or salad.
