1bag cup4cup gluten free pizza dough flourit comes with yeast
1cupwaterwarmed for about 30 seconds in the microwave
2heaping tablespoons of cornstarch mixed with 3 tablespoons of waterthis is the egg replacer
For the pizza:
2cupsshredded mozzarella cheese
1tablespoongrated Pecorino Romano cheesejust enough to sprinkle all over
1tablespoonolive oil and more for the crust
Fresh ground pepper
Pinchof kosher salt
Make the dough according to the instructions on the bag. Use the cornstarch water mixture instead of an egg for egg free. Mix the cornstarch and water in a small bowl until thin and watery, it will be thick and tacky at first. Follow instructions on the bag. The dough will need to be refrigerated for one hour before using. You can also use a pre made gluten free dough, if you prefer.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
The bag will tell you how to spread the dough over the pan. Once your dough is spread over the pizza pan, sprinkle about 2 cups of the shredded mozzarella over the plain dough, leaving the edge of the dough without cheese for the crust. If you like lots of cheese, you can always add more. Set aside.
Put ¾ cup of ricotta into a small bowl and set aside.
Dice up the one clove of garlic into tiny little pieces and add to the ricotta cheese. Add some fresh ground pepper and a pinch of kosher salt; mix with a spoon to combine.
Dollop 6 heaping tablespoons of ricotta mixture all around the pizza, about 5 around and one in the center. If there is any extra just dollop all around. Sprinkle the grated Pecorino Romano over the top of all the other cheese.
Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil in a circular swirl motion over the cheese on the pizza, working from the outside in. Like this:
Pour a little olive oil into a tiny bowl and using a silicone brush, brush the edge of the crust with the olive oil. If you don’t have a brush, dip a paper towel into the olive oil and gently rub the oil onto the crust.
Bake in the oven for about 15 min until the edges of the crust begin to get golden and the cheese is fully melted. Enjoy!
