Disclaimer: I was offered Namaste Foods products in exchange for my honest review.
Nearly everyone loves pizza (except my cousin’s daughter. smh.). If you have dietary restrictions, it can be hard to find pizza you can order. Even if you can find a gluten-free crust, some people have to worry about ingredients such as dairy or soy. Pre-made crusts tend to contain either gluten and/or soy. Luckily, there’s a company that’s got you back when it comes to homemade pizza. Namaste Foods offers a variety of foods that are free of the Top 8 allergens. What are those allergens? Gluten, dairy, soy, wheat, potato, peanuts, tree nuts, & casein. Namaste Foods is certified gluten-free and Kosher. Most of their products have also been approved through both the Non-GMO Project and Whole Grain Council. Another really cool note: this brand is family-owned and women-operated. Yaaaaaas.
If you’ve never made your own homemade pizza crust before, you might think it’ll be a little daunting. Not so (at least in this experience; it was our first time making crust ourselves)! Namaste Pizza Crust Mix makes it super easy to make homemade pizza. Upon opening the bag, you’ll be greeted by a delicious aroma of spices and herbs.Homemade pizza (Top 8 allergen free) is easy to make with Namaste Pizza Crust Mix. Click To Tweet
1 tsp oil
1 1/4 c water
1 1/2 cups of Namaste Pizza Crust Mix
Pizza or Tomato sauce (or whichever sauce you desire)
Dairy-free shredded cheese
Topping(s) of choice
Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
Spray pizza pan with non-stick spray.
Combine 1 1/2 c pizza crust mix with 1 1/4 c water and 1 tsp oil.
Beat with electric mixer for 3 minutes. Note: batter will be similar to cake batter consistency.
Scrape batter onto pizza pan and spread with spatula.
Pro tip #1: It is *very* important to spread batter at least 14″ and no more than 1/4″ thick. Use less batter if necessary.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes on lowest rack.
Pro tip #2: For a crispier crust, flip crust over after initial 20 minutes for an additional 20 minutes.
Pull crust out and apply sauce and toppings.
Bake additional 10-15 minutes.
Let cool and serve. Then, you’re ready to devour like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
Pro tip #3: If pizza crust is soggy, place pizza on a cooling rack for 4 minutes.
