My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

This pizza crust is very good, hearty and crisp.  I love making extra pizzas to keep in the freezer. For a fast and simple pizza crust, I always make this simple crust. We also love this one made with frozen bread dough, and this one made with refrigerated pop pizza dough,  and this one made with Bisquick baking mix.

Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

1 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup soy milk or water, more if necessary
2 tbsp olive oil or unsweetened applesauce

Combine the flour, baking powder, and seasonings. Stir in the soy milk and oil. Knead the dough until smooth. Cover with a clean towel and let sit for 10 minutes. Press or roll the dough into 2 thin pizza crusts on a foil lined baking sheet. Prick all over with a fork. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes or until set. Top as desired then bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until the toppings are hot and the edges are crisp.
*  If desired, freeze before baking the second time. Wrap in plastic wrap, then in foil, then place them in a Ziploc bag. To prepare, remove the pizza from the freezer, place on a foil lined baking sheet, then bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes or until hot and crisp.
