No rise pizza crust… this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

Pizza crust is one of the easiest things to make. Just know that you’ll make something better (and better for you) than any greasy pizza place can put on your plate. Your family will love it, your kids can help and you’ll serve it with a clean conscience. The picture below is Brent, making his “this tastes sooo good” face.

2 cups flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten Free)
2/3 cup water
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp molasses or whatever sugar you prefer
1 tbsp Italian seasoning

optional (any or all)

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp onion powder

1/2 tsp chili powder

2 tbsp flax meal

Put everything except the baking soda in a bowl and mix thoroughly. This is a great job for kids, but personally I put this task to my favorite set of big strong man hands. The dough should separate from the sides of the bowl and form a ball easily. At this point, mix in the baking soda.

Use your hands to work it into the metal pizza dish or a lightly oiled metal baking pan.

You might need a little more flour to form it into a nice ball and get it into the pan. Cook at 400F/200C for 10 minutes or until the crust begins to brown.

We added peppers, soy sausage, mushrooms and fresh basil over pasta sauce with Daiya mozzarella on top.

Add toppings and cook another 20 minutes until the ‘cheese’ melts. Try not to add too much topping or the crust won’t cook all the way through.

This should make your friends, family and you happy. Use whatever toppings you like and enjoy!

This is Christie and Brent, signing off.
