Gluten Free Pizza with Mozzarella, Olives and Anaheim Peppers

Gluten Free Pizza with Mozzarella, Olives and Anaheim Peppers
Serves 2
This pizza uses the gluten free recipe posted previously here. The recipe makes enough dough for 7-8 pizzas and can be refrigerated for 7-10 days. Make it in advance and just pull off a baseball size lump to create your pizza in just 20-25 minutes.

  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
  2. Prepare and measure all the toppings in advance.
  3. Dust the surface of the refrigerated dough with rice flour and cut off a 1/2-pound (orange-size) piece. Dust the piece with more rice flour and quickly shape it into a ball; this dough isn’t stretched because there is no gluten in it – just press it into the shape of a ball. You will need to use lots of rice flour to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands or the work surface, but avoid working lumps of flour into the dough.
  4. Sprinkle rice flour onto a 14-inch square piece of parchment paper. Flatten the dough with your hands into an even circle, sprinkle generously with more rice flour, cover with a 14-inch piece of plastic wrap, then roll the dough between the parchment and plastic wrap to produce a 1/16- to 1/8-inch-thick round. Peel away the plastic wrap, leaving the crust on the parchment paper
  5. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce over the surface of the dough.
  6. Scatter the mozzarella over the surface of the dough, then the basil, olives, pepper, and Parmigiano-Reggiano, if desired. Drizzle the pizza with about a teaspoon of olive oil. No further resting is needed prior to baking.
  7. If you have a pizza stone, slide the pizza and parchment directly onto the stone, otherwise a cookie sheet or pizza pan will do. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Take a peek at the bottom of the crust – if you’d like it to be browner, slide the pizza and parchment off the stone and directly onto the oven rack for a couple of minutes. (Parchment paper will turn black, which is fine.)
  8. Allow the pizza to cool slightly on a rack before serving, to allow the cheese to set.
