Wheatless: King Arthur Pizza
This is one item in a gluten-free product line from an old favorite company of mine: King Arthur Flour.
I followed the directions and made 4 personal-sized pizzas. The dough was a bit difficult to work with because it was so very sticky - almost like frosting. You have to pre-bake them before topping.
It stood up to a heavy application of toppings: 3 cheeses, mushrooms, chicken, pepperoni, fresh tomatoes, peppers, onions - and three different underlayments: olive paste, BBQ sauce, and pesto.
The bottom was nicely browned, but the texture of the crust was more light and shortbready than crunchy and crispy (like I like it). However, this is exactly how Dan likes his pizza.
No weird aftertastes or rice flour grittiness to detract from the experience. I froze the spare shells.
