I like "New York Style" pizza crust as well as average regular crust.

I prefer a crispy thin crust. Medium-thick crust is ok, but it's usually not crispy and I'd rather not eat that much bread. I prefer the pizza taste to be focused on toppings.

Now that I'm grain-free, I make my own pizza crust from besan (chickpea flour) and flax seed meal. It has to be thin crust. The flavor of besan is strong and so a thick layer of it is almost inedible for me.

Homemade hempseed and macadamia nut crust.

NY style, it's flexability and often huge size means I get to take longer to eat it, thus more enjoyment. :lol:
Peppering seasoning on it makes it like a secondary mini pizza.

I like "thin-and-crispy"! I also like the cheese-filled kind, but it's too much to eat, at-one-time----cuz, like someone else said, I wanna concentrate on the pizza / toppings part----SO, what I do is, remove the pizza crust-end, and take them home and have them as "mozzarella sticks", with sauce, at a later time.

@ starkid: Since you're "grain-free", I thought you might like to try this pizza crust recipe that I have (it's thin and crispy):


Quote:
Cauliflower Pizza Dough


INGREDIENTS

1 pound cauliflower florets
2 eggs

PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a food processor, process cauliflower until finely chopped.

In a microwave-safe bowl, cook cauliflower for five minutes or until tender. Place cauliflower in a towel, and squeeze out excess water so it is completely dry.

In a bowl, mix egg and cauliflower until well-combined.

On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread cauliflower dough out until it resembles a pizza round. Bake for 40 minutes.

Top however you want and bake in a 450°F oven for 7 minutes or until cheese and toppings have baked.



Makes 1 pizza round

^ Sounds interesting. I wonder what it tastes like. Have you tried it yourself? I'm trying to be gluten free, too.

I never pay attention to the crust of pizza. I think I like any pizza as long as the toppings are good. But then I guess if the crust is horrible, I'm sure I won't like it. I think any good crust is acceptable. Someone (an Aussie woman who spent some time in Italy) told me that the real Italian pizza crust is thin. What we call pizza here in Australia is really non-pizza.

Deep-dish is best ... for just one piece. But, unless you want your entire meal to be bread-based, thin-crust is best. That is my opinion, anyway.

Hi, jk1!!

YES, I HAVE tried it!! It's a little like..... If you can imagine if you could UNFOLD a "crunchy taco", and put PIZZA toppings, on there----BUT, that's only after you cook it, the FIRST time. After you put sauce, cheese, and whatever else, on there, and cook it, AGAIN, it softens-up----'cept for the end-part (the outer part----the part farthest from your mouth! LOL).

Yeah, I think I've got a gluten problem, cuz my skin is almost like sandpaper----and, has gotten WORSE since I started eating Whole-wheat!!

Always nice talking to you.....

I tried to make a vegan version of the cauliflower crust pizza a few weeks ago. It was a disaster. I boiled the cauliflower (for a bit too long, most likely), and couldn't get all of the water out. After I pulled it out of the oven, it was a gooey mess, and it just tasted like wet cauliflower.

I like regular crust the best. I grew up on regular crust and it brings back the happier memories from my childhood.

Thanks, Campin_Cat! I copied and pasted the recipe into a Word file so that I can try it sometime. I actually don't have a food processor. I'd first have to get one. Maybe eating that crust itself without anything on it might be nice?

It's very hard to be completely gluten free as it's in many things and they are usually tasty things.

You're quite welcome!!

Actually, if you have a blender, and the blender has a "fine" speed, as so many do, nowadays, you could use that----just stir it (with the blender, OFF), if you need to, to make sure all the bits are getting-down, to the blade----and, don't put the whole pound in there, at once.

Also, if you have a strainer (NOT colander----I'm talking about close-knit wire mesh), you can scrape the cauliflower florets over it, and get a good result. It would take about a year-and-a-half, but it would be worth it, if you're anxious to try the recipe (as I often am, with a new one)----plus, it would save you the cost of a food processor, if it was determined you didn't like the crust.


Maybe eating that crust itself without anything on it might be nice?

It IS----it's almost like eating chips ("crisps" to Brits)----but, be careful, they're VERY sharp!!

It's very hard to be completely gluten free as it's in many things and they are usually tasty things.

Yes, and also, gluten is in alot of toothpastes, OTC medications, etc.----alot of "hidden" places.



@starkid: I'm so sorry it didn't work-out for you----maybe, try ONE more time, using THIS recipe?
