Dont know what day it was, but it was a Gluten free pizza for dinner. I accidentally prepared the dough with rice flour. I said ouch to myself and nevermind as well. So I quickly decided to create a recipe with the ingredients at home and let the dough rice with rice flour. I let the dough rise and yes did it rise. I felt elated. And dinner was Archana's Gluten Free Rice Flour Pizza - with roasted vegetables and feta cheese. Children Loved and I was happy it was super healthy!
And yes it is a wheat and gluten free pizza crust that is perfect for those with allergies.
I retried this recipe with a different twist as I had comments from a few that it did not turn out well. On the day I made it, it was hot out of the oven and was perfect. A lot depends on the type of rice flour you use. In india fresh rice flour is readily available in the market.
If you dont eat potatoes, you can also had tapioca flour (2 cups rice to 1 cup tapioca flour), as they will add to the softness of the crust. I added potatoes the second time, but the first time around it was an accident.
Hope you enjoy some of the modifications and enjoy eating gluten free. Although you have to understand that making pizza from rice flour is not as easy. Some recipes use xantham gum, may be you can try using some gum to add to better texture.
