art-of-slow-pizza-dough-igYou asked for it! The Art of Slow Food is now selling their raw, sourdough pizza dough. Each dough ball makes a 14″-16″ sized pizza. Find them in the refrigerator or freezers sections of carrying retailers and markets.

About the Dough

  • Made with spring water, psyllium husk, ground flax, sorghum flour, tapioca flour, natural levain (wild yeast) and sea salt
  • Good for 21 days in the fridge, 3 months in the freezer
  • Remove dough from fridge and let it reach room temperature
  • Dough will be workable, easy to roll but a bit more sensitive to tearing than gluten dough
  • Roll out with a dusting of gluten-free flour or between two pieces of parchment paper
  • Crust can be par-baked for 3-5 minutes at 450˚F or for 7-10 minutes all dressed, until cheese browns
  • Par-baked crusts can be frozen until needed.

About the Sourdough

This is extra-special gluten free bread: fresh baked, rustic, soft, chewy and easily digestible sourdough! Using natural wild levain and a base of psyllium husk, flax and water, the dough is fermented for 12-18 hours to allow phytic acid breakdown and real flavor development. The bread is then baked on a stone to create rustic loaves with appealing crust.

The Art of Slow Food  does not use common gluten-free ingredients such as xanthan gum, agar agar, potato starch, rice flour or other high-starch ingredients. The bread is made with only 7 simple, organic ingredients, in order of predominance: Spring water, psyllium husk, ground flax, sorghum flour, tapioca flour, natural levain (wild yeast) and sea salt.

As a result of slow fermentation, the carbohydrates and starches in the bread are broken down, creating a light, soft digestible bread. The psyllium husk and ground flax act as a digestive aid and provide a soft, chewy texture without gluten or added starches.

Sourdough selection includes Toasted Sesame, Plain, Kalamata Olive, Rosemary Poppyseed and on occasion, Cranberry Walnut!

Their sauerkraut is made the traditional way – fermented for a minimum of 3 weeks in traditional German crocks and never pasteurized. Enjoy a number of varieties that are versatile and go well with any meal – sandwiches, salads, stir fries, soups, eggs or sausages. Sauerkraut is a highly probiotic food, and is best used to accompany meals to aid in digestion.

Sauerkraut selection includes Dilly Kraut, Cortido Kraut and Chimichurri Kraut.
