Cornmeal Crust Pizza

Here is yet another recipe adapted from  Mennonite Country-Style Recipes & Kitchen Secrets by Esther Shank.  It is one of my favorite cookbooks.  Of course, I have to modify recipes to be gluten free, and I often modify them to be healthier, but many of the recipes are just the kind of thing my family loves.

My family has come to expect and anticipates having pizza on Friday nights, but sometimes I just don’t have time to prepare it.  A quick crust pizza such as this cornmeal crust is never the same, but it’s better than nothing so they settle for that.

Once you adjust your thinking and don’t expect it to be a “real” pizza, it’s quite good.  I’m sure some toppings would make it even better.  This just happened to be one of those evenings when I was satisfied to put something edible on the table.

Cornmeal Crust Pizza

Combine the dry ingredients by whisking them together in a medium bowl.  Add the milk and oil and stir well.  Press the mixture into the bottom of a sprayed jelly roll pan using your hands or a spatula.  Press it up the sides of the pan a little to contain the toppings.
Combine the tomato sauce, Italian seasoning and garlic powder, or use a premade pizza sauce. Spread this over the crust.  Top with some shredded cheese and whatever toppings you choose.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

Yum!! This looks perfect =D. I love cornmeal, and it would be perfect inside a crust!
This would be a hit in our house. We love corn meal and corn meal crusts. I can see this being a success . I just printed it. I was planning pasta tonight but now I have a decision to make.
Oh, that looks divine...yum!
This does sound good. You're right, you have to get past that "it doesn't taste like pizza" thought, and then it's yummy! I love cornmeal in baked goods, especially something crusty like this.
I'm so excited to find your website. My husband's step-father was diagnosed last year with celiac disease and he and his wife are still having trouble trying to find good recipes to fix. I am compiling a list of recipes for them to have and so they'll have yours. This will also help me out when I cook for them. Thank you so much!
This looks like a good recipe. Will have to try it.
Your teacup description with the music box is interesting. I had never heard of a teacup with one. Thanks for stopping by again!
nice recipe!
it looks so yummy!
