Emerils Gluten Free Pizza

On Tuesday at 8:30 est on Green Channel. Emeril showed us how to make a gluten free pizza.
Here is the recipe

Emeril's Gluten-Free Pizza Dough, White And Red Pizzas
Recipes Courtesy of Emeril's Food of Love Productions, 2008

Yield: 2 16 to 18-inch pizza crusts

1 cup water (105 – 115 degrees F)
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 1/2cups white rice flour
1/2 cup soy flour
1/2 cup rice flour
2 cups tapioca flour
2/3 cup instant non-fat dry milk powder
3 teaspoons xantham gum
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup hot water
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 egg whites at room temperature
Vegetable oil spray

Preheat the oven to 400ยบ F. Combine 1 cup of water (105 – 115 degrees

F), 2 tablespoons active dry yeast and sugar. Let the yeast "bloom" in

the water. Liberally spray two large baking pans with vegetable oil

and set aside. Combine the white rice flour, soy flour, rice flour,

milk powder, tapioca flour, xantham gum and salt in a bowl of a

standing mixer with a paddle and set on low. Mix the flour well and

then add the olive oil with the remaining 1/2 cup of water, slowly

pouring into the bowl. Add the egg whites slowly until the mixture is

well incorporated. Add the yeast mixture and increase the speed to

high and continue to mix for 4 minutes.

Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and evenly divide into two

balls. Place one of the dough balls onto each pan. Place a plastic

glove or a plastic sandwich bag onto one of your hands and spray some

of the vegetable oil onto the gloved hand. Using that hand, gently

press each dough ball into a 13-inch circle about 1/4 inch thick,

leaving the edges a bit thicker to prevent sauce from dripping onto

the pan. Set aside for 10 minutes to rise.

Place the dough into the oven and let cook for 5 minutes. Remove from

the oven and top with your favorite sauce (recipes below) and

ingredients. Place back into the oven and continue to cook until the

crust is golden brown and crispy, 10 to 12 minutes longer. (Note: if

the baking pan is not liberally greased, the dough will stick. If this

happens, use a flat metal spatula to separate the dough from the

baking pan.)

For the White Sauce Pizza:
Top the Gluten Free Pizza Dough with:
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups part skim ricotta
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 cup crumbled ricotta salata

For the Red Sauce Pizza:
Top the Gluten Free Pizza Dough with:
1 cup your favorite marinara sauce
1 cup grated mozzarella
1/2 cup basil leaves, torn
1/2 cup cubed fontina

This recipe was featured on the Gluten Free Episode of Emeril Green.

7 Wonka: check label. Gluten will be listed as wheat, rye, barley or oats Wonka Statement: Thank you for contacting us. Your comments regarding Nestli & Wonka. Products are very important to us. In regards to your inquiry, there are eight major food allergens, including milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts (such as walnuts and almonds), soy, wheat, fish and shellfish. Labeling regulation requires that all ingredients added to products be listed in the ingredient statement. For these eight major allergens, Nestli ensures that they are labeled, regardless of the amount or whether a supplier may have added it to their ingredient. It is the responsibility of Nestli to ensure that these ingredients are properly labeled by their common or usual name in the ingredient statement. We want to help our consumers avoid inadvertent ingestion of their specific allergens of concern by accurately informing them about the product ingredients and by following Good Manufacturing Practices in our factories. All factories using a critical allergen as an ingredient must take all reasonable precautions to avoid cross-contact of products that do not normally contain these allergens and products that do not carry a specific mention in the ingredient statement. These precautionary measures include efficient cleaning of production lines and equipment And strict separation of materials that may contain critical allergens. If an allergen does not appear on the ingredient statement, then it has not been added to the product and the likelihood of cross-contamination contact is so extremely low that the risk is insignificant. We have also attached a copy of our gluten-free confection list. We hope you find it helpful. We appreciate the opportunity to be of service to you and hope your inquiry was handled to your satisfaction. Nestli Confections & Snacks Gluten Free Products: This information includes products, which, to the best of our knowledge, do not contain wheat, rye, or barley/malt ingredients. The list may not be complete subsequent to the date of issue due to formula changes and new product information.

Roben Ryberg's Biscuits

Roben Ryberg's Biscuits (Gluten-Free)
This recipe is a sampling from a new cookbook tentatively titled The Gluten-Free Baker by Roben Ryberg, scheduled for publication in the spring of 1999.

Roben Ryberg: This dough is great fun to work with. My kids like to play with the scraps. This dough is quite soft, and so are the biscuits.


1/3 cup shortening
½ cup potato starch
¾ cup cornstarch
1 ¾ teaspoon xanthan gum
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon sugar
¾ cup milk
½ teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 375 . In medium bowl, blend all ingredients. Mix very well to remove any lumps. Dough will be quite soft and a bit sticky. Roll or pat our dough on a lightly floured (cornstarch) surface. Dough should be about ½ inch thick. Cut out biscuits with 2 ½ inch cookie cutters. An inverted glass will also do the job. Place biscuits on lightly-greased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned.

Makes 6-8 large biscuits.
