Pizza bites, dairy-free

Before allergies this was a favorite recipe.  Then I was told that the girls were allergic to eggs.  There was no way to recreate this without eggs.  After a while, the girls still weren’t healthy and we were told that the eggs had likely been a false positive, but now we needed to eliminate gluten and dairy (even though they tested negative for allergies to those).  We’ve all learned that allergies are a tricky situation.  

 

Anyhow, the girlies have been bugging me for pizza.  You can find plenty of gluten-free pizza crust recipes, but not really dairy-free.  What’s pizza without cheese?  I’m working on it.  

In the meantime, I quadrupled the recipe and substituted 1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes for the cheesy flavor.  Pizza sauce on the side made it a hit.

Flax Focaccia revisited

The boy, my 18 year old son, says that he prefers the batch that was baked with the egg replacer.

That particular batch did not rise and came out the thickness of flatbread.  He said that the successful batch felt like too much bread for his sandwich.  

The precious pumpkins also tasted the flat batch and preferred it.

Flax fococcia bread for sandwiches

I used this recipe.  It worked nicely and was super simple.  I give it 4 out of 5 stars.  The only thing this recipe is lacking is affordability.  It takes 5 eggs and 2 cups of flax meal to make enough bread for 6 sandwiches.  That’s a tad on the expensive side for a family of 6 and sometimes 7 people.

I’ll definitely make it again, though just because it was so fast from start to finish.  

15 minutes prep and 20 minutes in the oven.

What I learned?  Egg replacer does NOT work in this recipe.  You HAVE to use real eggs.  Image
