Most cheeses are gluten-free...I have replaced traditional pizza with this...it is sooo good!
Try Vans Gluten free waffles...use the waffles like bread to make a sandwich...I did this for years
Vitacost carries Edward's and Sons Organic Gluten free coconut flour. I have had great results with it. I also purchase my almond flour from their. FunFresh Foods California Almond Flour Gluten free. Lots of people use honeyville.com or nuts.com. Just don't use Bob's Red Mill. For what ever reason it does not turn out well.
3/4 cup almond flour 1/4 cup coconut flour 1 stick chopped frozen butter 1/4 cup erythritol powdered 5 drops stevia
Cut butter into flours, till it forms a ball. I usually just press into pan. You can roll between parchment paper.
Bake 375. About 20 to 25 minutes .Golden brown.

Be careful of frutose added in ingredients, it mostly derived from corn.
I like the pre-mixed gluten-free flours available from Azure Standard (Azurestandard.com).
(I also buy GF brown rice pastas from Azure)
The Allergy Free Cookbook (ISBN 978-1-60553-071-0) does offer a GF, Egg-free pizza crust, but it calls for xanthan gum (I'd leave it out, I think you'll be fine, it only calls for 1/2 tsp of Xanthan gum.

Xanthan gum is corn based, thank-you I did not know that. I do make my own baking powder by combining 1 to 2 of soda and cream of tarter. Cream of Tarter is a by product of grape processing. The 1-2 formula has no filler so takes 3/4 tsp for each tsp needed. Flax is a no for me and I use the E-Nergy brand of egg replacer. [The flax formula strained and thined works well as a hair gel.] I will look at our library for the Bette Hagman books. Thank you, each added bit of knowlege makes cooking easier. Beth

Hrm, this could take some experimentation.
For the flour I suggest taking a gluten free recipe and altering it in the following ways: flax seeds (ground or flax meal) with warm water for eggs. (I believe it is 1Tbs flax to 2 Tbs water, but you may want to check on the flax bag to make sure) sorghum flour instead of rice flour. tapioca starch or potato starch (NOT potato flour) instead of corn starch make sure that you use guar gum instead of xanthan gum if very intolerant as xanthan gum is made from corn--some people tolerate it, others don't. Make sure that any baking powder you use does not contain corn starch as a thinner.
As for recipes, I suggest starting with Bette Hagman's books--The Gluten Free Gourmet series.
Good luck, and feel free to toss me an email if you need any specifics, or if things aren't turning out quite like you would like. Baking for special diets is difficult, to say the least, and takes a lot of experimentation to get recipes where you want them. Keep trying! --Heather
