Herbed Pizza Crust -Gluten Free

This pizza crust is delicious and holds together very nicely. It is not like those gritty, hard gluten free crusts you find in grocery stores.

1/3 cup milk at room temperature
3 1/2 tablespoons warm water
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon dry active yeast
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1 1/2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoon millet flour
2 tablespoons potato flour
2 tablespoons potato starch
2 tablespoons tapioca flour
1 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Fit a stand mixer with the paddle attachment.
Place the milk, water, melted butter, sugar, salt, egg and yeast in the bowl of the stand mixer and mix on low speed for a few seconds until well blended.
Whisk together the remaining ingredients and add to the wet mixture; mix for 5 minutes on low speed (2 on my stand mixer), scraping down the sides after about 2 minutes. (This should have the consistency of a thick muffin batter.)
Coat a 12 to 13 inch  pizza pan with butter or bacon fat, spoon the batter onto the pan using a sturdy spatula and spread the batter evenly over the pan right to the edge, then push it a wee bit away from the edge to form a slight lip.
Place in a warm draft free place and allow proofing for 30 minutes.
Top with your favourite sauce and toppings and place in a preheated 350 degree Fahrenheit oven on the middle rack and bake for 30-35 minutes, until bottom of crust is golden brown.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes and remove from pan.
Slice with a pizza cutter.

 *Please keep in mind that not all dried herbs and spices are gluten free so check the labels to make sure the brand you are using is gluten free. The same applies for prepackaged store-bought items, check the labels to be sure. If in doubt, call the toll free number on packaging to be safe and to make your cooking/eating experience is truly gluten free.
