Well as I promised and finally writing this blog about home-made Allergy Friendly Pizza
My boys so been begging for pizza for sometime now , and due to my diet being restricted as was still feeding my princess I havent been allowed Dairy ..... These homemade pizza's are Egg Free , Nut Free , Wheat Free , and one of the Pizza bases is Dairy free which in turn you can make a complete allergy friendly pizza , we had chosen to use Cheese on ours this time round.
Now have to admit the dough for the pizza was a boxed one and we make it up and top pizzas ourselves.First one is one called Macro Gluten Free - pizza dough mix straight on the shelves at Woolworth's and costs around $3.25 and makes one pizza base. In this one there does have a dairy part to it so if you have a Dairy allergy please avoid. The other mix was the Laucke Flour - Easy Bakers this one does contain soya but no Dairy you can also make rolls , bread , and other things with this one it comes with 2 separate packets in the box and costs around $5.50 and again on shelves at Woolworth's, With this one you also have to weigh the amount of flour used we added equivalent to double what the box suggested and it was awesome , this brand and box is the one we use at moment to make our bread in our bread machine and turns out fantastic ( will do blog with photos of our bread later).
So this night we made these with our boys started with mixing up the dough , with the Easy Bakers one we tend not to follow the amount of water it says we slowly add till we get the right consistency making such not too wet.As for the Macro brand follow the amount of water added. Water is the only think you add oh unless you want to add some herbs.
From here Use a pizza Pan and press dough out or if you choose use a rolling-pin to round out a bit then on the oiled pan , we use Rice Bran oil. You can also choose to line it with baking paper.
Once dough is flattened in the pan depending on your pan we had one with holes at the bottom so than this one would be right to add topping then place in oven.On the other hand the other one of ours doesnt so we place the base in the oven till slightly cooked then take out of the oven then top with toppings of choice.
As above we top with Tomato paste and keeping in mind some kids like ours can not have too much high Salicylates or high MSG foods ( Tomato being one of the highest to both) so this is a treat.
Then the fun begins with adding all your toppings such as Ham as in our photo ( do keep in mind if you have a Dairy allergy that Deli ham can have a preservative that is derived from Dairy) GERNS is normally the safest.
And then Pineapple as we were making Ham and Pineapple Pizzas
We also added Shallots to our pizza instead of onion as onion is high natural food chemical too - Salicylates now our pizza is ready for cheese as long as you don't have a Dairy allergy , other wise you might want to add an alternative topping.
There you have it one of our Allergy friendly Pizza ( as long as you don't have dairy allergy or change to alternative)
This is our finished Pizza and certainly was a hit with the kids , so just because we have allergies doesn't mean we have to miss out quite the opposite as this way you are sure of what ingredients that show up on your pizza as well as with no added flavours etc so the purest you can get and have the family time and joy of making it together.
So get creative and make all sorts pizzas , such as BBQ chicken by using a BBQ sauce with the least amount of added things and also one from a factory that doesn't may contain etc and use chicken breast that you can quickly diced up and fry in pan and add fresh to your awesome pizza.
So when you are stuck for a meal to have as a treat of fun family time think about Pizza you will enjoy it....
I do apologise for this promised blog being a bit delayed , hope this has been worth the wait for you all
