A lot of people who find out that they can no longer have gluten in their system get devastated thinking they have to dodge bread for the rest of their lives. We all love bread. What would life be without bread? It’s something I just can’t do without. However, even the most sensitive to gluten can still enjoy his or her bread. Just go for the gluten-free one! And no, you need not endure the tasteless ones. Here’s a recipe.
Question by Herp: Can you make gluten free pineapple buns?
My friend has celiac disease and therefore she can’t eat gluten. She really likes pineapple buns and before you get confused pineapple buns as buns with pineapples there is not even the tiniest trace of pineapples. These are pineapple buns http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMmX3psVu7w . Is there any way to change the recipe so there’s no gluten?

Kristi’s Soft Buns (Gluten Free!)
Ingredients Serves 6 servings
4 ozs pineapple juice
1 cup water (120 degrees f)
5 tbsps brown sugar (separated)
2 tbsps active dry yeast
1 cup potato starch
3/4 cup masa harina
3/4 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup rice flour
1 tbsp xanthan gum
5 tbsps butter (separated and melted)
1/2 tbsp salt
flour for dusting
1Combine pineapple juice and water. Add 2 tblsp brown sugar and all of the yeast. Stir to combine. If you put the yeast in too soon, the mixture will be too acidic and it will kill them, so be careful. Be sure your yeast is proofing before moving forward.
2Combine flours, starches and gums in the work bowl of your favorite mixer. Add salt, remaining brown sugar and 2 tblsp butter. Combine. Add egg and combine. Last, add yeast slurry and combine until dough starts to climb the paddle. Switch to your hook and knead for 8-10 minutes on medium.
3Using approximately 5 ounce portions, portion out your dough a piece at a time onto a floured work surface. Work just enough flour into each piece to be able to work it without it sticking to you and work each into a ball. Place the balls on a baking sheet or in a baking dish and squish them until the are about 1/2 the height of the “ball.”.
4Cover with a moist towel and allow your buns to rise for at least 90 minutes. Set your oven to 350°F.
5Brush on remaining butter and sprinkle on any toppings you like. I like sesame seeds. Bake uncovered for about 50 minutes or until they are showing really nice color and both the tops and bottoms look done. Allow them to rest for 15 minutes to set their insides.
6Slice down the middle and have a sandwich. After all, you deserve one. 🙂 These are also nice toasted.

Question by jesusfreak_200513: Easy gluten free pizza recipe?
i need an easy gluten free pizza recipe that i can use for my little sister who got diagnosed w/ Celiac disease and can no longer eat regular pizza. We don’t like driving to the health food store a few towns away to get the mix so please HELP!!!
Answer by Cister
Take a look at this site. Lots of ideas for your little sister. Give her my best:
1 tablespoon gluten-free dry yeast
2/3 cup brown rice flour or bean flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 tablespoons dry milk powder or non-dairy milk powder*
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin powder
1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
2/3 cup warm water (105 degrees F)
1/2 teaspoon sugar or 1/4 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In medium bowl using regular beaters (not dough hooks), blend the yeast, flours, dry milk powder, xanthan gum, salt, gelatin powder, and Italian herb seasoning on low speed. Add warm water, sugar (or honey), olive oil, and vinegar. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. (If the mixer bounces around the bowl, the dough is too stiff. Add water if necessary, one tablespoon at a time, until dough does not resist beaters.) The dough will resemble soft bread dough. (You may also mix in bread machine on dough setting.)
Put mixture into 12-inch pizza pan or on baking sheet (for thin, crispy crust), 11 x 7-inch pan (for deep dish version) that has been coated with cooking spray. Liberally sprinkle rice flour onto dough, then press dough into pan, continuing to sprinkle dough with flour to prevent sticking to your hands. Make edges thicker to contain the toppings. Bake the pizza crust for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Spread pizza crust with your favorite sauce and toppings. Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until top is nicely browned.

Squeeze all the liquid from the spinach and add to the onions. Add 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, the oregano and the lemon zest. Raise the heat to high and cook until all the liquid is gone, about 1 minute. Take off the heat and let cool whole preparing the chicken.
Butterfly the chicken breasts by laying each one flat on a cutting board, placing one hand on top and with the edge of a sharp knife parallel to the cutting board, begin cutting down the length of the side of the breast. Carefully slice the breast in half width-wise almost to the other edge. Open up the chicken breast like a book.
Add the feta (if you are using it) to the spinach and stir to combine. Stuff each chicken breast with one fourth of the stuffing, letting it overflow at the edges. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a rimmed baking dish and place the stuffed breasts on the baking dish, squeeze the lemon juice over and top with the chopped pistachios. Top the pistachios with a good pinch of salt and pepper and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Place the halved tomatoes on the other baking dish and drizzle with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, add 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Toss to coat.
Put both baking dishes in the oven and roast for 20 minutes or until the juices of the chicken run clear. Top the chicken breasts with the roasted tomatoes.
