Introducing the delectable Gluten-Free Halloween Ghost Pizza!
- 18 ounces of gluten-free flour mix with yeast
- 2 ounces of pizza tomato sauce
- 2 ounces of fresh mozzarella
- 2 or 3 black olives
- 1 tablespoon of EVOO
- A pinch of salt
Tools and Equipment:
- Non-stick baking pan
- Parchment paper (especially if your baking pan isn't non-stick)
- Conventional oven
- Mixer (not mandatory but highly recommended)
Begin by dissolving a pinch of salt in a small cup of water (you can use some of the water for the recipe). Place the gluten-free flour mix in a bowl and gradually add the rest of the water mixture while stirring. A mixer is recommended for this step, but if you don't have one, you can start with a wooden spoon and then transition to kneading with your hands. Continue by adding the extravirgin olive oil to the dough and knead it vigorously.
Once the dough is ready, wrap it in plastic film and let it chill in the fridge for a few hours, preferably 4 to 10 hours. When the dough is sufficiently chilled, sprinkle some of the flour mix onto your work surface and start kneading the dough with your hands. Using the tips of your fingers, gently spread the dough into a round shape. If you only have a rectangular baking pan (we'll forgive you this time), try to spread the dough evenly across its surface.
Next, spread the pizza tomato sauce over your pizza using a spoon. Create ghost-shaped mozzarella slices and place them on the pizza. For the finishing touch, cut small pieces from the black olives and use them as eyes for your "ghosts."
Preheat your oven to 400°F and bake your Gluten-Free Halloween Ghost Pizza for approximately 15 minutes or until the crust turns a delightful golden brown. As the mozzarella melts, it will give your ghosts a delightfully eerie appearance!
Indulge in the spooktacular flavors of your Gluten-Free Halloween Ghost Pizza and enjoy a frightfully good time with your loved ones this Halloween.
