vegan & gluten-free pizza dough

This is a wonderful free-from dough for creating your very own perfect homemade pizzas. It's a really fun activity to do together, enabling your children to learn how to play with food and make something they can be proud of that tastes YUM!

Ingredients:

  • 1½ C warm water
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • ½ C oil (I use olive oil)
  • 3 Tbs ground flaxseed 
  • grind of salt
  • 3 C gluten-free strong flour (I use Doves)
  • 1½ tsp fast action yeast

Method:

  1. Add all the ingredients to your mixing bowl in the order provided above, then combine. I use the dough hook on my kenwood chef to knead the sticky dough for about 15 minutes.

  2. Then place in a warm spot and leave to rise for a couple of hours - the dough will double in size. When the dough has been rising for an hour and a half turn your oven on to 200°C.

  3. Once the dough has doubled punch it down and knead it again for another 10 minutes. Split the dough (it stores brilliantly in a tupperware box in the fridge for a day or two!). 

  4. Prep your baking trays with baking paper, you will need to add flour to the baking tray and cover your hands with flour too as the dough is sticky. Press the dough over the paper to the size you desire to create your pizza base

  5. Cover the base with your tomato & basil sauce, then your fave toppings - you can see I went for olives, artichoke and hot red peppers. Sprinkle your free-from cheese over the top. Your oven should have reached 200°C by now.

  6. Pop the pizza into the middle of the oven to bake for 12 minutes. Enjoy
