The Art of Slow Food meets dietary limitations or preferences of all kinds – gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan & sugar-free – food that isn’t complicated or unpronounceable.
You 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 Ferments
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.
