Gluten Free White Pizza Sauce

gluten free white pizza sauce recipe

Are you team red or team white when it comes to pizza sauce?
Truthfully, for me, most of the time I am team red. But there are times when you just can’t beat a white pizza sauce.
Seriously folks!
2 years ago when I was in Toronto visiting friends we took a day trip to Niagara Falls. Wow! Truly spectacular. Really, it is a must see.
On the way back from the falls we went to Niagara On The Lake to grab lunch and the restaurant stated that they had really good gluten free pizza.
I was blown away, not so much from the gluten free crust but from the pizza toppings themselves. It was, sad to say my first time having a white sauce pizza and it was so darn good!
I have been meaning to replicate the pizza myself and share my own recipe with you all.
The toppings I used were baked shredded hashbrowns, lots of crumbled bacon, mozzarella and Gruyere cheese and a bit of pepperoni and of course the creamy white pizza sauce.

I also used a frozen Udis gluten free pizza shell but you can always make your own pizza dough which is usually what I do when we are having pizza. But we always know, don’t we busy moms, that it’s okay to use a pre-made pizza shell too!

I used 2 whole garlic cloves in my recipe because I find the extra sauce stored in a jar in your fridge infuses more of the garlic into the sauce without overpowering it for your next pizza night!

Gluten Free White Pizza Sauce

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 whole peeled garlic cloves
  • 3 glutenfree flour blend (I used Compliments glutenfree flour blend available at Safeway and Sobeys)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream

Instructions
 

  • In a small saucepan melt the butter on low heat.
  • Add the glutenfree flour and whisk.
  • Slowly add the milk and whisk very well until smooth.
  • Add the garlic cloves and the whipping cream and whisk.
  • Let sauce simmer for 5 minutes whisking the sauce occasionally.
  • Remove from heat and pour inside sauce into a jar and store in the refrigerator.

Gluten Free Pizza Spirals

gluten free pizza spirals recipe
Looking for an easy appetizer recipe?
Or to switch it up on pizza night?
If you have not tried my latest pizza dough recipe you really should. This dough is terrific!
After it has risen and you place it on the counter it is a great dough to work with and to me, feels like a pizza dough from pre-celiac days.
This dough stores really well in the refrigerator too. After it has risen for a few hours, you can cover it with saran wrap and keep in fridge for 3-4 days.
Take out 1/3 for a small pizza or 1/2 for a medium one. Place dough in a oiled glass bowl, cover with saran wrap and a tea towel and let it naturally warm up for a few hours.
Once it has warmed up and risen again you can use the dough.
I used 1/3 of the risen dough to make these spirals.

A few weeks ago the gluten free company Udi’s contacted me and asked if I would participate in their campaign called #EatDrinkBeMerry.

If you are gluten free I am sure you are familiar with their products. They make a variety of gluten free baked goods from muffins, cookies, bagels to bread.
I received a box full of their products and got to work on a new recipe.

In the box were their gluten free pizza crusts and while I normally would make a savory pizza with them I thought I would come up with a sweet dessert pizza recipe.
How does apple crumble pizza sound?
This recipe is dairy free too!

On a previous cookie post I had shared a recipe for vegan caramel and being that I had a bit of caramel left in the refrigerator and apples in the fruit basket I knew what I was going to make with Udi’s gluten free pizza crust.
Once you have made the vegan caramel this pizza recipe is really easy to make.

Gluten Free Pizza Dough

gluten free pizza dough recipe
Fall has arrived in Calgary.
It is one of my favorite times of year for you feel like baking, the leaves are changing colors, thanksgiving is coming and of course it is pumpkin time.
This week is yyc pizza week in Calgary and I was asked about 6 weeks ago if I would participate in a Calgary blogger challenge.
This would be my first participation in a blogger competition and I was both excited and nervous. I knew I would make a gluten free and dairy free pizza but I also knew I had not developed a really good gluten free pizza dough recipe yet.
This was my challenge!
I started by working on a gluten free naan dough recipe. Naan is a leavened flatbread mainly used in Eastern households and is a thin dough that is typically cooked in a frying pan.

gluten free fried naan
gluten free fried naan



I was very pleased with the gluten free naan that I had made but felt the dough might work even better as a pizza dough.
I set out to play in the kitchen with this new dough recipe and was thrilled with how it turned out.
Is PIZZA a staple in your house?
Did you give up on gluten free pizza once you couldn’t have gluten anymore?
Well you are in luck. This pizza dough recipe is really good and I know you will love playing with this dough at home.

This recipe is also dairy free. To be clear, dairy free to me is NOT using cow milk. I have 2 kids who cannot do milk dairy but they can do goat and sheep. If you cannot tolerate sheep and goat you can feel free to substitute the non-dairy product of your choosing.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Fruit Pizza

gluten free fruit pizza recipe

Here is the 3rd of 4 new easy recipes I promised you. I have already shared recipes for gluten free dairy free carrot cake as well as gluten free dairy free brownies.
Today’s recipe is for Gluten Free Fruit Pizza. Have you ever had a fruit pizza? It seemed when I had been playing with the recipe that either you grew up eating fruit pizza like myself, or you had never heard of it.
Fruit pizza was a summer dessert I had as a kid, but it was also a dessert I made for my own kids.

For other recipes your kids will love, click here.

Truly, I have not had fruit pizza since my diagnosis of Celiacs over 7 years ago. Silly really, that I have not tried to make a gluten free version. Maybe I needed to become a better gluten free baker to be able to come up with a recipe.#

gluten free fruit pizza recipe

Not only is this recipe gluten free, I decided to make a dairy free version too. What surprised me, as well as the folks who got to sample my first couple of fruit pizzas, is that no one could tell that it was dairy free. To me, that is a great feeling of accomplishment as a recipe developer.
I love to hear comments such as: “I didn’t know it was gluten free.” “Really, there is no dairy in here?”
There are 2 parts to this recipe:

  1. The gluten free pizza crust is a sweet cookie dough that you can bake the day ahead.
  2. The creamy dairy free filling that you spread over the pizza crust and then top with an assortment of fresh fruit.

I find it easiest to bake the pizza crust on a simple aluminum foil pizza pan, found at the grocery store.

Gluten-Free Thai BBQ Chicken Pizza

gluten-free thai chicken pizza


Do you love pizza?
Well, I do.
In fact, homemade pizza is a go-to, last minute, forgot to take meat out, oh my what to make for supper option.
I’ve posted a few recipes for gluten free pizza crust on my site:

gluten-free thai chicken pizza
gluten-free thai chicken pizza
gluten-free thai chicken pizza
gluten-free thai chicken pizza
gluten-free thai chicken pizza

I also have gluten free pizza crust recipe that I like to use from the cookbook Cooking for Isaiah by Silvana Nardone.
I think it is good to switch things up sometimes. That also happens if you realize you have run out of rice flour and/or eggs. I like to have a few good options available to me, so that I do not feel frustrated. With switching things up in mind, I wanted to try a new gluten free pizza recipe.
I knew that my hubby wouldn’t love this pizza, he likes a simple ham and pineapple pizza but really a pizza that uses regular pizza sauce is his preference.
There is nothing wrong with that, and most of the time I follow that guide.
While, sneaking in things like baby kale, proscuitto and buffalo mozzarella.

When my kids were teenagers we used to eat at Boston Pizza a lot, one of the boys favorites was a thai chicken pizza.
I thought I’d experiment with those flavors while of course, making it gluten free.

The crust I used for this pizza was my gluten free quinoa pizza crust but what I think is also important is sharing my how-to techniques I use to make a great gluten free crust.
A pizza stone for me is a must. It’s not about buying the most expensive one, it is just about using a pizza stone.
You also must preheat your pizza stone in the oven before adding the crust.
That to me is extremely important and then thus leads to a great pizza crust.
So here is what I do for pizza crust:
I preheat the pizza stone in a 425 degree oven while I am making the dough.
I cut a large piece of parchment paper the size of the pizza stone and roll the dough on the parchment.
Remove stone from the oven and place the parchment/dough on the stone.
Put the stone back in the oven and bake for 8 minutes.
Carefully remove the parchment from under the semi-cooked dough.
Bake for another 3-5 minutes, depending on size of your pizza.
Remove pizza dough from oven and quickly spread sauce plus toppings/cheese on pizza and bake in oven for 10-15 minutes.
Remove cooked pizza from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing.
When I follow these techniques I find now that I have the best gluten free pizza crust.
Now that you have the techniques for making a great gluten free crust here is the recipe for the Gluten-Free Thai BBQ Chicken Pizza.
Give it a try, I really enjoyed the twist on flavors.

Gluten-Free Thai BBQ Chicken Pizza

  • 1-2 cup leftover cooked chicken meat, shredded

The Difference Between Gluten-Free and Wheat-Free

gluten free muffins
gluten free cupcakes
gluten free heart pizza
gluten free buttermilk pancakes

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions on both the blog and our Facebook community about the difference between a wheat-free diet and a gluten-free diet.
I felt I needed to elaborate on the answer to this question. It is a longer answer than can be said in the comment section.
First off, I am gluten-free!
I was diagnosed with Celiacs disease 5 years ago, and thus a strict gluten free diet is my new life plan.
With my diagnosis came mixed reactions to packaged gluten free foods and a desire to bake really good gluten free foods. (That’s what Wheat Free Mom is all about: just because you’re gluten-free, DOESN’T MEAN your food should taste anything less than delicious!)
That is how this blog happened. I was frustrated at times and so happy at times and wanted to share this with you all.
When I found a gluten free recipe that tasted so good, I wanted to weep, and sharing these with others has been a blessing for me. I knew others were out in this world like me.
They too, wanted to make a warm batch of gluten-free muffins….

A chocolate dessert to wow your company (gluten-free cupcakes)…

A savoury gluten-free pizza

A pile of gluten-free buttermilk pancakes for Sunday morning

So I started the blog Wheat free Mom with my son back in August 2009. (Crazy how far the blog has come!)
Why wheat-free and not gluten-free?
Simply: gluten-free mom was taken and so I became Wheat Free Mom.

Gluten-Free vs. Wheat-Free

First off, they are NOT the same.
Gluten is the protein found in many grains including wheat, rye, barley, spelt and oats.
Celiacs disease is a medical condition, an autoimmune response to gluten.
If you have Celiacs disease even a small amount of gluten is harmful. It damages the surface of the small intestine resulting in poor absorption of nutrients (protein, fat, vitamins and minerals) which are necessary for good health.
The treatment for Celiacs disease is a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet for life!

What is Wheat-Free?

Basically… avoiding all products that list wheat as an ingredient.
Some ingredients are obvious, such as wheat, wheat bran and whole-wheat.
Less obvious ingredients are couscous, bulgur, semolina, durum and kamut.
Rye, spelt, barley and Oats are wheat-free but not gluten-free.
My recipes are all gluten free, which means they are also than wheat free.
Most wheat-free recipes contain some sort of gluten so they are NOT gluten free.
A food labelled “wheat-free” is safe for someone with a wheat allergy, but NOT for someone with celiacs disease or gluten sensitivity.
This is why it’s INCREDIBLY important that you take time to educate yourself on the differences AND the various ingredients to watch out for. It’s also a great reason to focus on non-processed foods and to cook for yourself as much as possible so you can ensure your meals are going to be clean.
I feel like I’m getting long winded in answering the question.
Simply: Gluten-free will be wheat free BUT wheat free will not be gluten free, unless it is labelled gluten free.
For me, I have a medical condition called celiacs disease, and for the rest of my life I will be following a gluten free diet. I am extremely sensitive to gluten so I am very careful where I eat and what I eat.
I appreciate all the discussion lately about wheat-free and gluten-free and I hope I’ve answered some of the questions. Again, I am not a doctor so please consult a doctor regarding your health issues.
Our bodies are all unique and what one person can easily digest is not necessarily the same for someone else.
Ask questions and seek professional medical help if you are having any health issues.
Lastly, again, ALL recipes on Wheat Free Mom will be both gluten and wheat free.
P.S. Congratulations to Kristin who won the latest giveaway!

Portobello Mushroom Pizzas

Portobellow Mushroom Pizzas

Portobellow Mushroom Pizzas

Have you tried portobello mushrooms? They are those really large mushrooms you see in the grocery store and wonder, “What can I make with these?” 
Well, I discovered a fantastic use for those large hearty mushrooms. Hollow them out and you can basically stuff them with anything you want. As for me, I want to make pizza!
I’m still living a low carb gluten free lifestyle and was craving pizza the other day. I’ve seen recipes on the web for cauliflower crust pizzas but I didn’t have any cauliflower in the house but I did have portobello mushrooms and thought I’d play with them. I am so happy I did1
Portobello mushrooms are very low in calories (18 calories), low in carbs (3 g.), and have a small amount of protein (1.8 g.). They also provide niacin(vitamin B), folate and selenium (an antioxidant). What do those numbers mean? For me, it means I can still follow my low carb plan,  but also enjoy pizza again.
They are also naturally gluten free, just fill them with gluten free pizza ingredients. To tell you the truth, these mushroom pizzas are so delicious you won’t miss the flour pizza crusts. Really!

Gluten-Free Cheeseburger Pizza

Pizza Dough. Great tasting gluten free pizza dough. Gluten free pizza dough that makes the whole house smell like fresh baking. I think I may have found a good one. On Friday I posted that I have been making a lot of sauces lately, one of which was barbecue sauce (that will be posted next week) and for supper tonight I thought I would experiment with a yeast pizza dough and make a cheeseburger pizza.
To me, homemade pizza is a quick and easy last minute supper. If I have not taken any meat out of the freezer, I can easily whip up a pizza out of ingredients I have in the fridge. I am happy with the quick rice flour pizza dough I had already posted, but again, wanted to play with a yeasty one.
This recipe makes 2, 12 inch pizzas. Well tonight there was only my son David and I, so I baked the other dough for 10 minutes in the oven and will freeze it for future use.
Yep, that easy.

Gluten Free Yeast Pizza Dough

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • 1/3 cup tapioca starch
  • 2/3 cup potato starch
  • 1 tsp psyllium husk powder*
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tbsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp unflavored gelatin
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups milk heated to 110 degrees

Instructions
 

  • Mix dry ingredients all together in a stand mixer.
  • Heat milk, and add milk, oil and eggs to dry ingredients. Mix well and then beat for 1 minute.
  • Divide dough into 2 portions and place dough onto 2, greased 12 inch pizza pans.
  • (I was only making one pizza so I did one pizza dough on parchment lined pan and one on a reg pizza pan. The parchment lined pizza went on a pizza stone after an initial cooking phase)
  • Wet your hands to spread pizza dough.
  • Allow dough to rise in a warm location for 30 minutes (I warmed mine in the oven)
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Pre-bake your crust for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
  • Go ahead and top with various toppings and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!


Gluten free girl, Shauna recently wrote that adding psyllium husk powder helps for gluten free recipes. Psyllium is high in fiber, bulks up in water, provides structure, and holds moisture in the crumb for gluten free baking. I found it did help the dough hold its shape better.

Gluten Free Cheeseburger Pizza

Ingredients
  

  • Lean sirloin hamburger (1/3-1/2 pkg)
  • 2 shallots chopped
  • Sliced red and yellow pepper
  • Homemade barbeque sauce (recipe on future post)
  • Buffalo wing hot sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella and sharp cheddar cheese

Instructions
 

  • Fry up hamburger and shallots in a frying pan.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Top pre-baked pizza dough with barbeque sauce.
  • Top barbeque sauce with buffalo wing hot sauce (amount varies depending on your spice level)
  • Top with cooked hamburger mixture.
  • Top with peppers and then top with shredded cheeses.
  • Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes.
