GF Pizza for All Blood Types

The hardest thing for me to give up on the blood type diet was pizza.  No matter how many months go by, I still miss it so.  I've tried just about every gluten free pizza there is and find they taste like cardboard.  Plus most are still cheats anyway.  So after much experimenting, I think I finally have a keeper.


Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups rice flour
  • 1/3 cup green bean starch
  • 2/3 cup ground flax seed
  • 2 1/2 tsp dry active yeast
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbls sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbls olive oil
  • 1 cup warm water (about 100°F)

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients and sift.
  2. In a small bowl, add yeast to warm water.  Let stand for 2 minutes.
  3. Beat eggs and olive oil into warm water.
  4. Add water mix to the dry mix and combine with a fork.  As it gets more difficult to mix, wet hands and knead mixture until well combined (it is really important that your hands stay wet or the dough will stick to your hands).  The dough is going to seem too wet.  It should be this way.
  5. Ball the dough as best as you can.  Cover the dough and let rise for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Using wet hands, spread dough onto a lightly oiled pizza pan or cookie sheet.  You will have to rewet your hands several times.  
  7. Bake the dough for 7 minutes at 425°F.
  8. Remove dough from oven and cover with your favorite toppings.  Return to oven and bake for another 15 to 18 minutes.
 If you've never heard of green bean starch,arrowroot flour might work in its place.  I buy it at an Asian market but I have also found it on Amazon.Hope you enjoy this pizza as much as we do!
