Pati's Lil Italy ! Gluten /Soy/Dairy-free pepperoni pizza

                                                                     Pati's Lil Italy !
                                             Gluten /Soy/Dairy-free pepperoni pizza


  • 1- 1/2 cups of Gluten /dairy /soy -free pizza dough mix 
  • Gluten -free pizza sauce 
  • Italian herbs
  • Turkey pepperoni
  • 1-tsp of Canola oil
  • 1- 1/4 cup of water 
  • Gluten /dairy /soy -free mozzarella cheese 
  • garlic salt 
  • Gluten /dairy /soy -free butter
  • olive oil 
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F


                                           I like this brand Namaste Foods Pizza crust mix 
                           because it also has a layer of flavor by adding Italian seasoning .
                                                       Add 1- 1/2 cups of pizza crust mix
                                                                   in a mixing bowl

                                                         Make sure you measure precisely .
                                      Leveling off excess flour with the back of a butter knife.

                                                               Add 1- 1/4 cup of water
                                                                to the pizza crust mix .

                                                           Add 1 tsp of canola oil to the mix .

                                                                Stir with a wire whisk until
                                                           the mix is well combined .
                                                      Then get out a mixer and blend for
                                                  another 3 minutes  and the crust mixture
                                                will look like a cake batter consistency .

                                       Spray your pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray.

                                              Pour pizza crust mixture on to the pizza pan.

                                         Spread evenly all over the pan forming a circle.
                                                       It should roughly be 14'' wide .

                                          I then lift the pan and drop it on the counter
                                                        to let out any air bubbles.
                                                  Place in the oven on the lower rack.

 Bake for 20 minutes.

I picked fresh herbs from my herb garden.
Italian parsley
Italian Oregano
I  washed and paper towel them dry .
                                                       Love the smell of fresh herbs!

                                                                  Italian Oregano
                                                         I pulled the leaves from the stem .

                                                                   Italian parsley .
                                                   Place all basil leaves on top of each other .
                                                   Roll all together and julienne the leaves. 

                                                           Bunch all the herbs together .
                                                                      Chop finely .

                                                         I like Del Grosso Pizza sauce
                                                                      All natural 
                                                                    &  Gluten -Free .
                                                                  Pizza crust is done
                                                         Ready to take out of the oven .
                                                       Let cool for a few minutes .

                                               Top pizza crust with the pizza sauce.

                                           Spread  the pizza sauce in circular movement

                                                all the way around to almost touching
                                                                     all the edges.
                                                               Sprinkle the chopped herbs
                                                               scattering  over the pizza.

                    I like to use Daiya dairy/soy/gluten-free mozzarella style cheese.
                                The package states it melts and stretches like real cheese .

                                         Sprinkle mozzarella style cheese all over pizza .

                                                             Add pepperoni...
                            I like to use Hormel Turkey Pepperoni with 70% less fat.
                                          Place all around the pizza so every slice of pizza
                                             will have 2-3 medallion of pepperoni.
                                                               Looks pretty good to me .....
                                           I like to use Earth balance natural buttery spread.
                                                             Dairy /Soy & Gluten-free!
                                                         Mix 1 teaspoon of buttery spread

                                                         with a sprinkle of  garlic salt .

                                           Place in the microwave for about a minute
                                                                   until all is melted .
                                                 Mix together with a Silicone Pastry Brush.

                                                  Brush the melted garlic buttery spread
                                                 all around the edge of  the pizza crust.

                                                            Drizzle olive oil over the pizza .

                                                                    Back in the oven

& bake

                                                            for another 10 minutes.

                                               Pizza is done ready to cool before slicing.

                                                              Now for the test ..............

                                                           1st bite is pretty good !!!!
                                                               Yep... I wanna another piece !
                     Not bad for a Gluten/Soy/Dairy -free pizza !!!!
           Now I can experiment with different sauces & toppings!
