This is ds' pizza using ingredients that he has gained this year (food challenges). It uses Namaste Foods pizza mix for the crust. The toppings are homemade tomato/marinara sauce; spinach, olives, onions, Daiya cheese (dairy/soy free), jalapenos...
I found a box of the pizza crust on clearance at Walmart. How did you make these? Did you follow the regular pizza crust instructions then wrap the dough around little smokies? My son has never had pigs in a blanket, so these would be a fun treat.
It was pretty yummy! It was a little underdone and the apples were a tad crunchy bc we were running late to pick up a friend when it was in the oven. I still need to figure out which tweaks made the gf crust workable! I've tried a number of different recipes and keep coming back to my tweak "regular" recipe. I managed to get the bottom rolled out and into the pan w/ little issues. The top split when I tried to flip it off the parchment, but I it wasn't "stuck" and flopped off as I flipped!
I am in the process of adding it into KFA's recipe collection. I did a crust of Orgran's chocolate cookies, butter, and sugar. Baked at 350* for 8 minutes. Then set aside. Made ganache, added it to crust, and chilled for 30 minutes. Then I melted some raspberry jam and poured that over the chocolate and covered with fruit. The ganache never got hard. It was creamy and yummy!
French Toast and Pancakes: Verdict - Meh x 3 Mixing it - I didn't want to mix up the entire pouch. After some looking along the website I found you could mix it up in smaller batches if you have a device that can blend a smaller amount of liquid. I did 4 tsp and 1 cup water and blended with a stick blender. The smell is quite strong! Pancake: I thought I could then hand blend the prepared product into my pancake batter. It did not blend in completely. I saw yellow bits and bobs throughout.
LOL! Very carefully. Actually, it is pretty easy. I piped on some swirls and then used the Viva paper towel method to smooth it. Do you know this method? It is dreamy. You let buttercream set up for a couple minutes (but not crust), and then you use a Viva paper towel to smooth out the imperfections. It has to be Viva, because it is the only non-patterned paper towel.
The cake part is just a gluten free/nut & tree nut free mix. Then I used another gluten (and etc) free cookie mix to bake cookies to even fill in the spaces between cupcakes. Then I used Betty crocker vanilla frosting with red food coloring for the "sauce." The pizza crust was marshmallow fondant (Kraft marshmallows and sugar) colored with a little yellow food coloring and some coco powder rubbed on to give it a real crusty look. The "cheese" is grated white chocolate from Vermont Nut...
P.S. You can definitely omit the coco powder from the pizza crust if your daughter is allergic. Is she allergic to white chocolate? I have been told that white chocolate is not technically chocolate. Hope it's okay for her.
I have never made cherry pie before but I wanted to try for the 4th of July. My son is allergic to wheat, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts. I am a bit intimidated about making a pie crust since it needs to be wheat free.
Wheat free crust is tricky. Its hard to roll out. I use my usual recipe - 1 cup flour to 1/3 cup shortening. I add my water by feel. I use the brown rice flour mix in the recipe collection. The key I found was to chill the dough at least an hour. Without chilling, I couldn't roll it out. Its still delicate but I roll between parchment. That way I can move it around.
Thank you for sharing these tips and recipes! When I have to make one in a rush--I put a box of Enjoy Life soft baked cookies (gluten, dairy, egg, nut free) into a bag and smash them up...then I just press them into the pie plate! The snickerdoodles are great as a base for pumpkin pie!
My gf dough has to sit in fridge at least a few hours. I just try to make it the night before. If I have all my sides done Wed, I can bake my pies Thurs. No one is coming for dinner, so I don't have to "entertain".
In my experience: 1.5 tablespoons potato starch = 2 tablespoons cornstarch Arrowroot is more of a one-to-one substitute, but arrowroot doesn't work well with dairy products -- since you avoid dairy, that shouldn't be an issue.
@coutureee - here are some other substitutes for corn . I use different starches depending on what I'm doing. That link has the different options and substitution rates as well as where they work best or don't work well.
