How to Make Tasty Pizza While on a Candida Diet - Yeast-Free, Sugar-Free Humus Pizza

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 125

First, begin by making the crust. You will need only 2 cups flour (I used unbleached un-enriched organic white flour), 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2/3 cup milk, and 6 tablespoons oil (or 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons) {I used coconut oil.}

I began by combining all of the dry ingredients and whisked them together. I then added the egg, the milk, and then the oil and whisked until the dough began to thicken. I then kneaded the dough for a little to disperse the coconut oil.

Then, I left the dough in the bowl while I chopped up vegetables, but it is not necessary to let the dough set because the dough does not rise - I did not even cover it.

I chopped up two large carrots (but I might suggest two medium because I ended up with a lot of carrots), 1/2 a medium sized red onion, three cloves garlic (I love garlic, so I don't know if that would be too much for your taste or not; use your best judgment), 1 tablespoon ginger (ginger - and garlic - are very good especially if you are on a candida diet), and about 1/2 cup red cabbage.

Now, everything was all ready and all I had to do was put it all together. I rolled out the dough on the counter by placing flour on the counter, then pressing the dough down on it, then flipped it over to coat both sides. I rolled the dough out to be very thin, and it coated the bottom of a cookie sheet quite perfectly. (I did have to cut some dough off the top and bottom to fit it in the corners, and I even still had a tiny bit of dough left, which I froze to use another time once all of my tiny leftovers accumulate to make enough for one whole batch.) I did use a new stick free pan, and I did not even spray it, and still the pizza did not stick; however, I might suggest greasing the pan.

For the hummus, which was used as a replacement for tomato sauce, I used a simple, original flavored store-bought hummus (although you can easily make your own, or use any variety). I spread a slightly thick layer of hummus on the rolled out dough now in the cookie sheet. Then I shredded probably about 1 cup of medium cheddar cheese on top and proceeded to sprinkle the chopped vegetables onto the pizza. Then, to top it off, I sprinkled it with a little garlic powder and garlic salt (which I mistakenly thought was garlic powder, and advise to use only garlic powder).

I decided to also, to use some elk meat, since my husband likes meat occasionally, I put small chunks of meat on half of the pizza. They were already well cooked and came out slightly over cooked, so I would advise, if you wish to use meat on your pizza, to use slightly undercooked meat.

To bake, I placed it in the preheated oven of 375 degrees and set the timer for 13 minutes. Once the timer went off and I returned to check on my pizza, I pulled it out of the oven and began cutting it into 12 pieces and soon discovered that the middle was still uncooked. So I placed it back in the oven for another 6 minutes after which it was entirely done and ready to eat.

I choose to try my pizza with a little bit of sour cream, and it was delicious; I had a few bites without sour cream, then one bite with sour cream, and the whole meal was scrumptious. The crust was slightly flaky and quite moist rather than a previous yeast-free dough I had made. My husband and I only ate 1/2 the pizza that night, and refrigerated the rest. We then had the leftovers for breakfast the next morning, and they were still yummy - I would say not as good as the first night, but still good.

I hope you try this recipe, for I really enjoyed the outcomes, and with it there are many variations you can use with it. You can try a different type of hummus - I just bought some new sweet potato and a new avocado hummus. You can also vary the type and amount of vegetables you use. You can even take cheese sticks and stick them in the crust - I have done that with a different pizza recipe and it was scrumptious - and you can even try using a different cheese; I want to try making a pizza with feta cheese. Let you imagination go wild, and enjoy.
