Tailgating w/ Homemade Pizza and Meyers Elgins Sausage Giveaway

When I go tailgating I like to bring out of the ordinary food that you would not generally bring . Like Gluten Free Pizza that I either assemble at the Stadium or Pre-assemble at home then cook in foil on the grill.
However I always make the dough ahead of time at home.

Gluten Free Pizza Dough Ingredients
2 ½ Teaspoons Dry active Yeast or 1 envelope Red Star  Active Dry Yeast
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 cup warm water
2 teaspoons Sugar
2 cups potato flour or favorite gluten free flour
1/4- 1/2 cup potato flour for kneading an rolling depending on moisture in air.
Cooking Spray

Pizza Ingredients
Gluten Free Pizza Dough ( Listed above)
1 cup of your favorite Pizza sauce or marinara sauce
2 Cups of Mozzarella cheese.
Meyers Elgin Sausage sliced

TIP of The Day: If you don't have any shredded Mozzarella Cheese at home and you have string cheese use that and use shred it in your food processor.

Stand Mixer
Dough Hook
Stand Mixer Bowl
Glass Bowl
2 Kitchen towels one for stand Mixer the other for greased glass bowl.
Rollin Pin
Large Chopping Block
1Piece of Nonstick foil or 1 Cookie Sheet
1 Grill

Take Yeast and 1 cup warm water and combine.

Let rest for 10 min  until creamy.

Next Place Dough hook on Mixer

After 10 minutes have passed add 2 cups flour, Olive Oil, Sugar and turn on mixer.  Cover with towel so you do not have flour all over kitchen.

Run until stiff dough forms

Spray Glass bowl with cooking spray and place dough in.

Cover with a towel or saran wrap and let rise and double in size, this takes about a half hour.  I generally place in a warm oven. I have a old Gas oven so it generally always is warm inside.

After dough  has doubled in Size.

Flour a clean surface or Chopping Block with flour and add Extra flour don t forget to flour Rolling pin before you start to roll out dough.

Roll the dough out on a flat surface then spread sauce on top of dough.

Next add toppings I sliced up some of Meyers Elgin Sausage and some Pepperoni with some black olives.

Next Add Cheese then wrap up in foil for easy transport.
Cook on nonstick  foil or on a lined cookie sheet .

Bake at 400 for 10-15  minutes in covered Barbecue Watching  making sure it does not burn

Slice up and serve to your fellow tailgaiters

Bon Appetit and Enjoy
