GF pizza....yum!

I made GF pizza tonight. This was the third time I did this, but I wasn't really happy with the crust I used the 1st two times. This time, I used Gluten Free Pantry's French Bread and Pizza Mix. It made way too much for 1 person, so I took the other half of the dough and made French bread.

Gluten Free Pizza

1 package Gluten Free Pantry's French Bread and Pizza mix

Pizza toppings of your choice (all veggies for me)

1 small can tomato sauce

Dried oregano

Garlic powder

Onion powder

Dried basil

Good mozzarella

Parmesan Reggiano

Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Make the entire package of French bread and Pizza mix. Split it in half; grease a loaf pan and put half in it to rise for 40 minutes (follow the oven directions on the box). Grease a cookie sheet and dump the other half of the dough on it.

Rub your hands with olive oil and press out the dough on the cookie sheet until it is at the thickness you prefer for pizza crust. Pop it in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes so that it is just starting to brown. Remove from the oven.

Pour the tomato sauce in a saucepan and add the oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder to taste. Heat through and then turn the burner off.

Grate enough mozzarella to cover your pizza dough. Spread the pizza sauce over your dough and then add your toppings (I used onion, green pepper, and tomato). Sprinkle the mozzarella on top. Grate some parmesan on top of the mozzarella and then sprinkle a little basil on top of all the cheese.

Bake until cheese begins to brown (about 10 minutes).

Serves way more than one, depending on how thin you make your crust.

On a somewhat side note, Baby loves pizza and we can't leave it laying around anywhere or he will go to town on what he finds (i.e. getting up to get a drink, you set your plate on the end table by the couch where you were sitting. You come back and there is a black and white beast licking the plate).
