Yep, this month, the Daring Bakers took on pizza! But, not just any pizza. This pizza recipe comes to us from Peter Reinhart’s “The Bread Baker’s Apprentice”. Our hostess with the mostess this month was Rosa of Rosa’s Yummy Yums. This may be your basic pizza dough, but it is far from ordinary!
For myself, I was quite disappointed when I read this month’s challenge. Not because I didn’t think it was a challenge, but because I thought it was a challenge I could not succeed at. You see, I have tried making GF pizza a number of times. It always gave a very sticky dough that was nearly impossible to spread out into the pan. Once it was baked, it was nearly impossible to get off the pan. Then when it came to eating it, well…let’s just say cardboard may have been easier to eat. Horrible experiences. So, my search for pizza crust continued. Until now. This pizza crust was fantastic. It wasn’t as good as your regular gluten-filled pizza crusts, but it was really, really good. The flavour of it was fantastic, it was slightly chewy, but held it’s shape amazingly so that you could eat it with your hands. I am so, so happy with this recipe! If you’re GF and craving pizza, please give it a try. The flavour of these flours is fantastic!
The crust from this recipe wasn’t that great, and it was a lot of work. Check my other recipes for easy, delicious gluten-free pizza crusts.
Creamy Alfredo Pizza
- 1/2 pint heavy cream
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 Tbsp cream cheese
- 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1-2 cloves minced garlic
In a saucepan, over low heat, mix the cream, butter and cream cheese, stirring constantly, until melted and well-blended. Mix in Parmesan cheese and garlic. Continue to cook and stir 15 minutes, or until Parmesan is lightly browned. Spread over the pizza crust.
My toppings for the pizza were:
fried sliced chicken breasts
slices of red onion and sliced fresh mushrooms, fried together with the chicken
Top with mozzarella & Parmesan cheese before baking. Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley after it is out of the oven. Delicious!
