When it comes to ordering gluten free pizza in Shrewsbury when you have Celiac disease or are gluten intolerant, you may have limited options. Of course we have you covered here at Mangia Brick Oven Pizza, but sometimes you want to make your own. That’s why we want to help.
Traditional pizza dough is made of grains that contain gluten (Wheat, rye, oats, barley), which is an essential part of the pie, and even tomato sauce can contain gluten. Most meat, dairy, seafood, fruit, and vegetables are naturally gluten free so the dough is the main ingredient you need to change.
Making Gluten Free Pizza
It all starts with the dough. There is gluten free flour out there that you can use as your base, but there are a few things you need to keep in mind:
- It won’t be as elastic as traditional dough so make sure you don’t try to stretch it out as much
- Make sure you set your oven to a lower temperature
- Gluten free dough needs a slower bake to achieve the right consistency
Next up is the sauce, which if bought from the store, may have gluten due to preservatives or additives found in it. You can actually make your own sauce pretty easily if you want. Our Shrewsbury pizza restaurant takes time to ensure our gluten free pizza is just as delicious as our traditional options!
Once you have your sauce and dough out of the way, it’s pretty much fair game for you in terms of toppings and cheeses. When it comes to toppings, just make sure you are using fresh vegetables and meats. Frozen vegetables and seasoned meats may not be gluten free. When in doubt, always check the list of ingredients to see if there is some gluten product included. That’s all you need to know when it comes to making a delicious gluten free pizza at home so give it a try!
