Yummy Gluten Free Pizza Crust & Sauce

I really love this pizza crust recipe because it tastes great and it's really easy.
The pizza sauce recipe is the most incredible pizza sauce I've ever tasted!

2 1/4 teaspoons rapid rise dry yeast
3/4 cup warm water
2 teaspoons brown sugar
2/3 cup white rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon cider vinegar

Add the yeast and brown sugar to the water, and stir to dissolve the yeast.  Set aside.  Measure all the dry ingredients and put in a medium size bowl. Add olive oil, vinegar, and yeast water.  Stir with a fork until a ball forms.  The dough will be soft.  Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until about double in size (20 minutes).  Stir down the dough.  Spread dough with hand until very thin, making sure you close up any tears or holes in the dough.  (You may want to flour your hand a little, using either featherlight or sweet rice flour.)

Spread with pizza sauce.  Place mozzarella cheese on top and and toppings of your choice.
Bake at 375┬║ for 15 minutes.


Pizza Sauce

Put these ingredients in a blender and blend:
½ cup celery, sliced
½ cup green onion, chopped
1/3 cup green pepper, chopped
½ teaspoon garlic powder or 2 garlic cloves
¼ cup water

Put 1/4 cup of blended mixture in a large bowl.
Then add:

2 cups canned tomatoes, slightly blended
2 6 oz cans tomato paste
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
Blend.  

Mix well.  


Note:  I usually double the 2nd half of the recipe.  I add 1/2 cup of the green blended mixture, and double the rest of the ingredients.  (I use a quart of my whole tomatoes, etc.)  It makes a huge batch.  I use what I need and freeze the rest for pizza another day).
