Description

This dish came about for having a few random ingredients that I wanted to use up. It tasted great and thought it was a good little idea for a quick lunch so thought I would share it with you all. I used the Warbuton’s mini gluten free wraps, Sacla’s free from basil pesto and Violife’s dairy free cheddar style cheese.

Enjoy!

Description

I absolutely love pizza, and while I’ve found a lot of restaurants serving good gluten free bases I miss the cheese as I haven’t come across one that offers dairy free cheese yet. The gluten free bases I’ve tried have always been thin crust so I thought I would have a go at making the Chicago style deep dish pizzas.

Note: the recipe for the pizza sauce makes a lot of sauce but it is handy to keep in the freezer for future use

Enjoy!

For the base:

  • 180ml water, warmed in the microwave for 30 seconds

  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons of sage
  • 460g fresh, ripe tomatoes
  • 2 x 400g tins of chopped tomatoes

Method

pizza

To make the pizza dough:

  • Mix the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl
  • Stir in the olive oil and water
  • Beat with a dough hook on an electric blender for 5 minutes or knead by hand
  • Cover the bowl with cling film
  • Leave in a warm place for one hour

For the pizza sauce:

  • Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to the boil with the lid on
  • Simmer the sauce for 30 minutes and then remove the lid and cook for another 30 minutes stirring occasionally
  • The sauce should be thick but still juicy
  • Top the pizza and freeze the rest for future pizzas

To assemble the pizza:

  • Preheat the oven o 200 oC
  • Split the dough in half and roll out each piece of dough to about an 8″ diameter circle
  • Line 2 shallow pie tins with the dough, I used the tinfoil disposable ones
  • Fill the bases with the pizza sauce, sprinkle on the grated cheese and top with whatever you fancy
  • Bake in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes
  • Remove from the pie dish and serve immediately
