Jim was talking about missing pizza, and I do know that some local pizza franchises will make pizza with a gluten-free crust. But frankly, we love to make a home-made pizza. It was an easy meal to make for me, and a great way to use up some leftover ingredients. I would make the no knead bread dough, let it sit and rise, then roll it out as a crust and throw sauce and toppings on.
Unfortunately, can't do that anymore. But Jim will miss that. We found a pizza crust mix at the Bulk Barn the other day and bought some of that to try. I gave it a go tonight.
I mixed it as per the instructions and it makes more of a batter than a dough. I spread parchment onto the baking sheet, oiled it and spread the batter out in a thin disc, and baked it as per the instructions.
Actually, it came out not bad. It rather had the texture of a thick tortilla. It was not light and fluffy like a bread crust, and there was no crispiness, but not bad.
I sauced it, topped it, and baked it until the toppings were melted and browned/
It was not bad. Jim did not love it the way he loved the pizza before, but he was happy that he did have a pizza option. Besides, it's the toppings that really make the pizza, right? In this case, onions, mushrooms, cheese, and bacon. The second one had red onions, bacon, and pineapple.
I will be on the lookout for other things to try, but this may be a good quick go to for future meals!
