Homemade pizza (With the help of Laura Strange’s blog My Gluten Free Guide – The essential gluten free guide to food, travel and life (mygfguide.com))
I have been looking everywhere for a great gluten free pizza dough recipe, when I stumbled across Laura Strange’s blog. It is the best pizza dough I have tried. It was very easy to make and very delicious to eat. I will list the ingredients for the dough below, but for full instructions please click the link above that will take you to Laura’s blog. I also make my own pizza sauce.

1tsp caster sugar
160ml warm water8g dried active yeast (gluten free)
170g gluten free plain flour – plus extra for dusting
50g tapioca starch ( sometimes called tapioca flour)

1.5 tbsp olive oil
For the tomato pizza sauce:
500g carton of tomato passata
4 shallots (you can use a medium size onion if you wish)
A splash of red wine
2 tsp of garlic granules/ or 1 clove of fresh garlic
1 tsp of dried oregano
1 tsp of dried basil

For the topping use what ever you like for my pizza I had salami, Parma ham, olives and cheese.
Method for pizza sauce:
Chop the shallots into thin slices add, a splash of olive oil to the saucepan and add the shallots on a medium heat. Once the shallots are translucent add the sugar, herbs and garlic then mix for 1 minute. Add the passata and red wine and cook for about half an hour on a low heat until the sauce has reduce and thickened. Leave to cool.
