Gluten Free Pizza

I know you are going to love this gluten free, egg free pizza crust recipe from Lungomare's Executive Chef Craig because a good gluten free crust is hard to find. Chef Craig has been converting a lot of his recipes to gluten free with his favorite, Cup4Cup gluten free flour. This crust is crispy and keeps the crispiness whether you make a really thin crust, or a thicker crust. Top it anyway you like, with sauce, or as shown with Fontina cheese and vegetables.

You can find this and many other gluten free chef recipes on my website at www.fearlessdining.com

Notes

If you would like this pizza to be vegan, you can use Daiya dairy free cheese instead of regular cheese when topping the pizza.

Gluten Free Shopping Tip

Ingredients like olive oil, shallots, mustard, cream, stock, and butter will help bring French flavors to your cooking.

Gluten Free Cooking Tip

French cuisine is renowned for slow-cooked sauces, however a quick pan sauce will do just as well; after sautéing a piece of meat or fish, remove it from the pan, deglaze with brandy or wine, finish with a touch of butter or cream and voilà!
