Gluten Free Pizza

Not all pizza is Italian. The stuff they call pizza in America is really not true pizza. The recipe you will see below is more like what they serve in the Italian Romanian area.
2 cups rice flour
1 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 tablespoons yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon double-acting baking powder
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons applesauce
Approximately 2 1/2 cups warm water (make sure dough is pliable and very moist)
Mix ingredients with floured hands. Knead very gently until all mixed together. Spread good amount of cornstarch on large, smooth surface.
Divide dough into 4 even balls. Place each one far apart on floured surface. Lightly sprinkle cornstarch on dough. Rub cornstarch on heavy rolling pin. Roll each dough ball into 1/2” thick circle. Place on large, baking sheets that have generous amount of corn meal sprinkled on them.
Spread spaghetti sauce or creamy garlic sauce on top of crust. Put any of these toppings on:
Sliced olives
Sliced and olive oil sautéed garlic, onion and bell peppers
Fresh tomato slices
Chicken strips
Italian sausage
Salt pork
After placing any or all toppings on there, put generous amount of mozzerella and parmesan cheeses on top.
Bake for 30 minutes (or until crust is golden brown) at 400 degrees.
