Gluten Free Pizza with the Cuisinart #Alfrescamore Pizza Oven

Shares

Making good gluten free pizza crust has been so much of a challenge we don’t even attempt it any more. That is until we received the Cuisinart Alfrescamoré Outdoor Pizza Oven. With fall here in Maine, we have put away our outdoor furniture so we brought the Cuisinart Alfrescamoré Outdoor Pizza Oven complete with Pizza Peel, Pizza Stone, & Pizza Guide to my sister’s house for a little pizza party.

In the spirit of full-disclosure, I’ve partnered with Cuisinart Alfrescamore and received a product demo and premium items as part of my participation. However, no payment was given or expected for posting about the program, and as always, all opinions are my own.
 

My husband and Brother-in-law set up the Cuisinart Alfrescamoré Outdoor Pizza Oven while I made some fresh gluten free dough. The Cuisinart Pizza Oven assembles in less than 10 minutes without tools.

I am not sure why but when we make gluten free pizza in our oven the crust always seems to have the taste and consistency of cardboard. When we tried the gluten free pizzas made with the Cuisinart Alfrescamoré Outdoor Pizza Oven no one could tell that they were gluten free! I think the champion is the pizza stone and constant flow of heat cooking the pizzas.

 I only wish that we could justify using the Cuisinart Alfrescamoré Outdoor Pizza Oven year-round, because it’s for use outdoors only we will be putting it away for the winter soon. Designed to replicate the perfect pizza environment created by a read brick oven, the Cuisinart Alfrescamoré Outdoor Pizza Oven provides pizzeria quality pizza with wood fired flavor- anywhere, any time.

You can make more than just pizza with this oven, and I’d been challenged to create a three course meal using the Cuisinart Alfrescamoré Outdoor Pizza Oven. I failed the challenge but now that I have tried it I can see myself making cookies, smores, tartlets, and so much more using this amazing outdoor cooking tool!
 
The oven runs on propane. We just used a small propane tank which made it as compact as possible and it was easy to find a corner of the table to set it up on. You can get a stand and hook it up to a big proane tank and it wont take up any table space! I would have loved using this year round when we lived in Texas!

We made 2 different pizzas, the first with onions, mushrooms, fresh basil, and lots of cheese and the second with pepperoni and onions. They were both a big hit. Spreading the cornmeal on the pizza peel before creating our pizzas was absolutely necessary. The dough would stick to the peel and fall apart. I am so glad I got the corn meal tip though because it added a nice little crunch and texture to the bottom of the crust.

For those looking for a gluten-free pizza dough, we use and love Pamela’s gluten-free flour. The recipe we followed was directly from their packaging and at http://www.pamelasproducts.com/pizza-crust/

Ingredients:

2 cups Pamela’s Pizza Crust Mix
2-1/4 tsp or 7grams active dry yeast
1 cup plus 2 TBSP very warm water (110°optimum)
2 TBSP oil
For dusting use Pamela’s Pizza Mix, rice flour and/or corn meal

Directions:

MIXING:

Scoop and level pizza mix in dry measuring cup, don’t pack. Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment or mixing by hand, combine dry mix, yeast, water and oil. Mix on medium for 15 to 30 seconds until dough is completely combined. Dough will look sticky. Scrape down dough in bowl into a ball, lightly oil the top, cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 to 2 hours, or until doubled (dough can be put into refrigerator overnight and baked the next day after warming to room temperature).

FORMING:

Pizza dough needs gentle handling. Dust parchment paper or pizza peel with extra Pizza Crust Mix, or rice flour (use cornmeal if desired; cornmeal adds flavor and texture to the crust). Scoop out 1/2 dough for one 10” pizza crust. Use oiled fingers or lightly dust pizza dough with rice flour, and gently pat into pizza crust. For a fatter crust, pat dough out leaving a large edge for crust. For very thin crust, roll or pat out using second sheet of parchment on top of dough. Dough can sit and rise or bake immediately.
