Daring Bakers: Pizza

October's challenge was hosted by Rosa of Rosa's Yummy Yums, in memory of Sher, who passed away in July. I really appreciate the opportunity all of the Daring Bakers had to remember Sher, and the contributions she made to the blogging community.
Now, the challenge to making this pizza crust was to learn how to stretch it by tossing it in the air. For all of us gluten free bakers, I know we were all thinking the same thing: Get Real! No gluten = falling apart. So this is a challenge where I did what I could, which was rolling and patting out the dough by hand. I made my favorite homemade sauce on the stove and moved right along.

The original dough recipe came from “The Bread Baker’s Apprentice” by Peter Reinhart. Of course, I made plenty of changes to make it gluten free, but it is not so difficult. I also added some Italian herbs to the dough, just for kicks :)

We love pizza around here, so this challenge was nice, especially since it is something that I make on a semi-frequent basis anyhow.
Our toppings included Chicken, Onions, Spinach and Cheese.

Man, I've loved seeing so much gluten free pizza all over the gluten-free-blogosphere this past month. Yours looks so delicious! Congrats!
