New Pizza Crust! Wheat free, egg free

Nathan found and perfected his homemade pizza crust. I will admit, it is yummy if you like a thin crust. I was currently using a flat bread recipe for Gage’s pizza crust. I was ok but really tasted like flat bread and not pizza crust. So, we decided we would try Nathan’s new recipe using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free all purpose flour.

1 envelope of dry yeast

1/2 teaspoon sugar

3/4 cup lukewarm water

1-3/4 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free al purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt.

Pre-heat oven to 400

1. Combine the yeast, sugar and water. Mix then let sit for 8 min.

2. Combine the flour and salt.

3. Pour the yeast mixture into the dry mixture.

4. It’s not like dough usually is. I don’t knead it like Nathan’s original recipe.

5. Wipe crisco or oil on a pizza pan or cookie sheet.

6. Spread the “dough” around on the sheet in a thin layer. Then bake until the edges are browning.

7. Top with toppings then bake until done.

You can top the dough then bake it but it comes out a little chewy. I have also baked some then threw it in the freezer to have on hand. Thaw it for about 10 min. on the counter then top with toppings and bake it.

Who doesn’t like lobster?

Since Charlie’s last scope in June we have reintroduced all types of beans and mustard. So far so good. Next on his list is lobster. He has been so excited to try lobster. I don’t know if it’s because it’s a different animal or if it’s because he gets a new food.

I purchased a lobster tail at the grocery store and we cut it into 4 big chunks. This way we could try smaller portions and keep the trial under control.

We started off with one bite and then waited 15 minutes. You have no idea my anxiety when we do these tests. Is it going to go okay?  Is he going to swell up like a balloon and have an anaphylactic reaction? Will it be a more delayed reaction after he’s had a few bites? I just stare at him the whole time with the emergency bag open and ready.

I have never seen him so excited about anything!

After the first 15 minutes was up we offered him another bite. This time he wanted to dip it in butter. Then we wait, another 15 minutes. We did this two more times until he ate the whole chunk.

A few days later we gave him another chunk. We let him eat the entire chunk in one sitting.

Still no reaction.

Looks like as of now lobster is back on the menu for Charlie!
