Homemade pizza dough – so worth it. Even if it is gluten free, nothing beats made from scratch.
I made this Gluten Free Sausage & Pepper Pizza for two reasons: one, I had leftover sausage from my GLUTEN FREE MEXICAN SAUSAGE PASTA; and two, I had purchased two different types of gluten free pizza mixes that were sitting in my pantry. It was time to try one of these mixes. I chose to try the DOMATA. When making any gluten free type bread, you end up with a smaller rise. For my pizza dough, that is a plus. I prefer a thin crust and this gluten free flour creates a super thin crust. Hello Italy.
The dough is super easy to put together. Simply mix with water. No need, or should I say, Knead. I could pass on that pun. The dough and water does need to be mixed together. I used a dough hook in my mix master. The other lesson to share is to know that you should try to par-bake the dough before adding the toppings. The instructions on the Domata box do not say to par-bake but baking the dough just a little, will keep the crust crisper because it will not absorb the liquid from the tomato sauce.
One of the amazing things about this gluten free sausage & pepper pasta is how easy and quickly it comes together. I had made the sausage the day before. So I simply needed to cut my onions and peppers. I had pizza sauce in my pantry. So my prep time was like 2 minutes. It took longer to par-bake my crust. Whether or not you eat gluten free or not, you will want to try this super crispy crust.
The building of the sausage & pepper pizza.
Gluten Free Sausage & Pepper Pizza
- 1 Whole Sausage sliced
- 2 Cups Gluten Free Flour Domata
- 1 Cup Water
- 1 Slice Red Onion
- 1 Slice Yellow onion
- 1/4 Whole Bell Pepper - red, yellow & green
- 3 Tbsp Pizza sauce
- 1/4 Cup Mozzarella
Begin by mixing the dough and water in a stand mixer. Mix until it is fully combined and pulls away from the sides of the mixer. Remove from the mixer and knead on a floured surface. Form into a ball and let rest for a couple of minutes.
Roll out the dough and place on a pizza screen. Par-bake in a 400 degree oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and begin adding ingredients starting with the pizza sauce. Spread evenly and next add the cheese. Finally, add the onions, peppers and sausages and place in the oven. Cook for 8 minutes or so.
Serve and enjoy!
