Ingredients

  • CRUST
  • 2/3 cup rice flour (white or brown)
  • ½ cup sweet sorghum flour
  • ½ cup tapioca starch
  • 2 Tbsp. almond flour
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, cut in pieces
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. cold water

  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • Instructions

  • Crust
  • In a large bowl combine dry ingredients. Cut in the butter until the whole mixture has a rough, crumbly texture leaving a few larger pieces of butter
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and water. Add to the flour mixture and stir until the dough comes together. Shape the dough into a disc, wrap it and chill for just 20 minutes
  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Line your counter with parchment paper dust with gluten free flour and put your dough on top, sprinkle with some more flour. Roll out into a circle to fit your tart pan. Press the pastry onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom
  • Toppings
  • Spread ½ cup of mozzarella cheese over the bottom. Scatter over half the basil. Top with tomato slices
  • Mix olive oil and garlic and brush the tomatoes with the oil and sprinkle with hot chili pepper.
  • Scatter over the other half of the basil and top with remainder of the cheese. Bake for 20 minutes
  • Serve immediately with scattered fresh basil leaves
