This was by far the best pizza and the best pizza crust I have made. It was mouth watering. Everyone out there that will try this will love it! Guaranteed! The dough makes enough for the 1 large square, hand tossed thickness, pizza pictured above, or, 2 thinner 12"rounds.
The Dough Ingredients
1/2 cup brown rice flour
3/4 cup soy flour
3/4 cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup warm water
1 teaspoon sugar (proofing yeast)
1 package of active dry yeast
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of Half and Half
2 eggs (room temperature)
1 red onion (diced)
2 breast of chicken (cooked and diced)
BBQ sauce (your favorite gluten free BBQ sauce)
Green Onion (diced)
Start by whisking all the dry ingredients for the dough together in your stand mixer bowl. Make a well in the center of the bowl for the wet ingredients.
In a separate bowl mix the vinegar, olive oil, and half and half. Set this aside to curdle.
In a separate bowl mix together 1 teaspoon of sugar, the yeast, and 1/4 cup of the warm water. Set this mixture aside to "bloom" or proof the yeast.
Now mix the eggs, yeast (proofed), and the milk/oil mixture along with the remaining half cup of warm water into the dry ingredients using dough hooks. Here is a video showing this step and the dough consistency. I find visuals help.
When dough is mixed, liberally oil hands with the olive oil and spread the dough into the desired shape and thickness into an oiled pan.
Bake the crust for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. It will puff slightly.
Add the BBQ sauce and spread it thinly over the crust leaving a ridge around the outside edge clean. Use your favorite or make your own (when using store brands read the label carefully).
Next add a sprinkle of cheese.
Next add the diced red onion and the cooked chicken and top with cheese
Bake again for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. When it comes back out of the oven sprinkle with diced green onions. Serve and enjoy the best gluten free BBQ chicken pizza you ever tasted. I guarantee it!
