Pillsbury Gluten Free Pizza Dough!

22 Sep

Ok, so I haven’t posted in awhile… It’s definitely not due to a lack of crazy meal attempts just a lack of time to write about them. However, while this pizza is busy baking

I figured I could take a few minutes to share my obvious blunder so you don’t repeat it!

Well to begin with the directions say to grease your hands and the baking sheet before pressing out the dough and baking it. Easy enough right. Wrong! My go to oil currently is coconut oil. Unfortunately, coconut oil solidifies below 76 F. So as I attempted to press this cold clump of dough out into a nice flat disk on my cutting board it solidified the oil beneath it and stuck. I was pressing it out on my plastic cutting board thinking I would be able to slide it off onto my hot baking stone that was warming in the oven. Bad idea…

Luckily, I was using one of those very thin flexible plastic cutting boards. So to get the pizza crust off the cutting board I placed it on my glass top stove which always heats up slightly when the oven is on. By the time the oven was preheated I was able to remove most of the crust fairly easily but not without ripping it in half. I put it on the baking stone and pieced it together the best I could and baked it for a few minutes then put on the toppings and cooked it the rest of the way. I like to use a Mexican Cheese blend on my pizza along with Turkey Pepperoni and black olives.

Unfortunately, I don’t think I cooked it long enough during the initial baking process for fear of burning it. While it was very tasty the dough was slightly under done, soft and gummy instead of the firm texture you would expect from a thin crust. I will assume this was my error and try this pizza crust again without the coconut oil. Have you tried this gluten free pizza crust yet? What toppings do you prefer on your pizza?
