FLOURS NEEDED TO MAKE THE PASTRY FOR THESE GLUTEN FREE PIZZA MUMMY’S
In all of my recipes there are measurements in grams. It is way more accurate. Consequently, you need a kitchen scale to make this recipe and they are very cheap and affordable. There are 3 types of gluten free flours in the blend, with psyllium husk and flax seed for a binder. You must know that there is no advantage in chilling this dough before or after rolling it out.
HOW TO MAKE GLUTEN FREE PIZZA MUMMY’S
Preheat the oven to 425°F and cut out some parchment paper for a large cookie sheet.
Weigh out the flours, baking powder, sugar, salt and pepper.
Whisk together the psyllium husk, flax seed, water, butter and oil.
Mix the dough and roll it out on parchment paper, into a large rectangle shape.
Cut the dough into rectangles and cut strips of dough for the bandages
Spread on the pizza sauce, cheese and any other favourite pizza toppings
Carefully lift and lay the bandage strips on top of the filling, followed by the olive eyes.
Brush the pastry with melted butter or an egg wash. Season the top of the mummy’s with extra salt and pepper, before baking them for 25 minutes, or until the top of is golden brown and crispy.
