Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger
I have big plans for my “debut” at the Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger Event hosted by the Book of Yum. Pizza is the recipe for me!
I picked a blogger who I’ve enjoyed getting to know during What’s for Dinner Wednesday’s and with whom I’ve had a couple laughs over the difficulties of trying to feed kids. If you ask my husband though, it’s harder to feed me. I’m sure Brian at Fire and Salt has a few tales of his own and can understand my husbands lament since he blogs about his gluten free journey on behalf of his wife’s celiac.
I did manage to make Brian’s pizza crust but right off the bat I broke the “cardinal” rule and made a change to the recipe. Hopefully Sea will forgive me since I’ve got three growing boys and one who is not supposed to be growing! I doubled the batch! That’s a heck of a lot of egg whites, whew and fishing all those shells out, I’m a terrible egg cracker.
Anyway I’m a rule breaker. There I’ve said it I broke the rules and I’m begging forgiveness.
Brian’s post for the crust/bread is very detailed and full of pictures I like that because I’m a visual learner. Look Brian, we properly proofed the yeast!
As you can see, I enlisted some help. Thing 1 thoroughly enjoyed his supervisory roll and even got to help with the crust.
Brian’s recipe intrigued me because he had a solution for making the pizza crust look like it’s wheat counterpart with a nice rolled edge and all. Why didn’t I think of that? All this time I’ve been rolling and squashing, flattening and fluffing like crazy trying to get something with an edge that wouldn’t let all the goodies spill off in the oven. Brian solved it for me with a recipe to boot!
I will be in touch with the Firefigher Blogger to see if he has suggestions for adjusting the recipe for my dry dry climate but other than being a tad dry (I’m sure due to the vast difference between Seattle by the sea vs. arid intermountian Idaho) I was very pleased with the outcome and despite my hopes of having extra pizza for lunch on day two, the boys and I polished two pizza’s off in one night.
Thanks Brian and thank you Sea for allowing me to participate in all my rule breaking glory!
Ta da! She’s a beauty!
