Favorite Thin GF Pizza Crust

This is an easy pizza crust for gluten free folks. It is a very thin, soft crust that blends especially well with pizza flavors. It is wonderful cold too. I use to make this for my son once a week and he would take the leftovers in his lunch.  Every one else in the family liked the leftovers too, even the non gluten free family members.

GF Thin Pizza Crust                   Serves about 6
Preheat oven to 400.
1 1/2 tsp dry yeast granules
About 1 cup warm water, 110-115 degrees
1 tsp sugar
2/3 cup rice flour (brown or white)
1/3 cup potato starch flour
1 Tbsp potato flour
1 1/2 tsp melted shortening (Spectrum is a brand I use)
1 tsp salt

In a mixing bowl add sugar and 1/2 cup of the warm water, sprinkle yeast over water and stir in. Let sit for a couple minutes until yeast bubbles.
Add all the other ingredients and 1/4 cup of remaining warm water.  Mix dough well adding final amount of water as needed until the dough has the consistency of a nice cake frosting that would spread, not run.  All water may not be needed. It actually varies every time I make it oddly enough.
Grease a 10" x 15" baking sheet with edges. Pour batter into pan and spread with a spatula, forcing the batter up the sides of pan if possible.
Precook crust for about 5-7 minutes. Let cool down a few minutes and add sauce (Easy Pizza Sauce) and toppings of your choice. Return to oven and bake for about 20-23 minutes. Times may vary.

Slice up some pizza and have a wonderful treat!  (You will need to use two hands to hold it.)

A few steps:

 Pour pizza dough onto a greased pan. Precook 5-7 minutes.

Add sauce and all your favorite toppings.

If you add a little cheese on top it will help hold the ingredients in place. Vegans can use Daiya Mozzarella.

Bake for 20-23 minutes to make sure dough is completely cooked. It will still feel soft.
