2. Gluten Free Recipe: Ham-and-Swiss Quiche
Because it's Reader Request Week, I'm whipping up recipes you told me you wanted to learn how to make. We got so many requests for gluten-free dishes, so I had to stop and ask myself: If I cut out gluten, what foods would I miss the most? Flaky pie crust topped the list! So today I'm making a quiche with a great gluten-free pie crust. Everyone will love it! Sarah's Tip of the Day: To start, roast some onion slices with olive oil and thyme (they will add big flavor to the filling later). Then, make your pie dough by using gluten-free all-purpose flour (this is a great product because you only need to buy one thing at the store, rather than a bunch of specialty flours to make your own mix), salt, butter, an egg, and ice water. You'll be filling this crust with beaten eggs, milk, ham, Swiss cheese, and those roast onions. Watch the video and I'll show you the secrets to rolling and baking a gluten-free pie crust. Once you master this technique, you can transform any pie into a gluten-free version!
3. Gluten Free Pizza
In case you’re unfamiliar with the history of the Pizza Margherita, the original version was made in 1889 by Chef Raffaele Esposito to honor Queen Margherita during her visit to Naples. The tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, were meant to represent the colors of the Italian flag. There’s really something to be said about simplicity. This was my second attempt at making pizza crust since becoming gluten free. The recipe itself is very simple.
