Reminiscent of a loaded baked potato, this gluten free pizza is topped with sliced potatoes, crumbled bacon and dollops of sour cream. The traditional crust (not flatbread) is recommended for this topping combination. Note: This crust is not parbaked before toppings are added.
Gluten-Free Pizza Tips:
Baking pizza on a preheated pizza stone produces a superior texture and taste. For a makeshift stone, turn a large baking sheet upside down and place it on the lowest rack of the oven to preheat. Slide the flatbread and parchment onto preheated baking sheet and bake as instructed. Alternatively, bake the pizza in a round pan on the lowest rack of the oven. After baking, remove the pizza from the pan and slide it onto a wire rack to cool. Leaving the pizza in the pan produces a lot of steam that can make the crust soggy.
