G-Free Tortillas or Pizza Crust

I wanted to share with you this delicious flour we tried when we had our HyVee “G-Free” birthday party last month.  The dietician shared a recipe that can be used for either tortillas, OR pizza crust.

Plus, its super simple – love that!

The Domata flour was from Hy-Vee.  It was $13.37 where we live, for the 4lb bag.

Gluten Free Flour Tortillas

(makes 8 tortillas that are gluten and casein free)

– 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour mix

– 1  1/2 tsp. xanthan gum

– 2 tsp. organic sugar

– 1 tsp. salt

– 1 cup warm water

* Add dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly with hands

* Add cup of warm water to bowl and mix in dry goods with hand, until it is no longer dry

* Separate the dough into 8 pieces and roll each piece into a ball.

* Sprinkle a clean, flat surface with a bit of rice flour and then roll your dough ball into a roughly circular shape.  If these are tortillas, make them thin as possible.

* If this is a pizza crust, oil up hands and spread crust into desired shape.  Bake for 10 minutes at 350, then remove – and add toppings as normal, then bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

* If this is for tortillas, throw thin shapes onto hot griddle with oil and let cook 1 minute or until it has started puffing up, and making some brown spots, flip and cook other side.

* Slide cooked tortilla onto a waiting plate and repeat until all are done.

Enjoy!
