Persimmon Pudding

Persimmon Pudding

Many of you landing on this page today are probably looking for our gluten free version of the Finnish Pulla. Time just did not allow us to develop yet another yeast-based bread recipe. We hope to deliver this sometime in the new year.

Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Our latest creation is a vegetarian gluten free pizza, using Bob’s Red Mill pizza crust mix. A video including the recipe, is viewable in our You Tube account. In our opinion, this pizza is as good, if not better than any wheat based fare. Try it for yourself, and tell us what you think. We prefer a thin pizza crust, which means that you will need to take some time pressing out the dough. Do not even think about twirling this dough over your head “Italian-style.” Gluten free pizza crust does not lend itself to acrobatic heroics, unless you enjoy pizza crust all over your ceiling, and all over you.
