Here is my go to Pizza Crust Recipe, The only fails I've had were using old yeast, so now I make sure I use good yeast and the freshest possible. I have made this about 20 times and my non-GF part of the family says its just as good as anything else and doesn't taste like cardboard. I also add herbs to the dough like Basil, Oregano etc.
I have not made this in the Kamado Akorn (still new to Kamado) yet but it works like a charm in the oven so on the grill seems like no problem at all, this recipe works like a charm.
Tried and True Gluten-Free Pizza Crust
Found on allrecipes.com
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup gluten-free all-purpose baking flour (I use Bob's Red Mill only or if in a pinch I use Cup4Cup)
3/4 cup cornstarch
2/3 cup lukewarm water (I usually add a bit more to get the right consistancy)
2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin powder (I don't bother with this at all)
1/2 teaspoon agave nectar (I use Honey instead)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line pizza pan with aluminum foil; grease with vegetable oil.
Combine flour, cornstarch, water, dry milk powder, yeast, vinegar, salt, gelatin, and agave nectar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; mix on medium speed until combined and dough is very runny, about 3 minutes. (more like thick pancake mix) *** I also let rise about 15 mins or so
Spread dough over lined pizza pan with wet or oiled fingers.
Bake in the preheated oven until the underside of the crust is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven; flip it on the pizza pan. Remove aluminum foil.
Add your toppings, cook til it's bubbly delicious on top, maybe about 7 mins. Enjoy
Hello everyone, I just got an Akorn for Father's day. The kids really want pizza. I ordered the Chargriller heat diffuser and a pizza stone. Is this correct? Set the diffuser up and place the stone on the cast iron rack above the diffuser? Or does the diffuser pull double duty and I should return the stone?
I saw video of people without diffusers setting their stones on bricks which is why I thought both would be a good idea. We got the Akorn for $120.00 from a classified ad with 40 lbs of lump charcoal, a cover and a looftlighter so I had a bit of folding money left over for accessories.
Finally got up the courage to try a hot and fast pizza cook this weekend. Have been studying for the past week on how to make this happen and results were great! Made a 70%, 24 hour dough and Sunday night I got the LG24 as hot as I’ve ever had it and settled in nicely around 600°. Homemade sauce from ingredients all grown and canned from our home garden and pepperoni, ham and bacon (and pineapple on mine, love it or hate it, I love it). The whole process was really easier than I thought. Already planning the next cook and how to improve. Thanks for looking!
