Gluten Free Bacon and Scallop Pizza ~ Copycat Recipe British Beer Company

Gluten Free Bacon and Scallop Pizza ~ Copycat Recipe British Beer Company

After being on a Gluten Free Diet for 15 months,, last May on our Anniversary we decided to go out for dinner. I found out that the British Beer Company has a great Gluten Free Menu. I got this pizza. It was delicious. I have been wanting to to make it myself. Here is my Copy Cat Version.

Homemade Gluten Free Dough ~ Bob's Red Mill Pizza Crust mix:
1 Pkg. (16 oz) Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust ~ Whole Grain Mix
1 ½ cups Warm Water 110*
2 Eggs – Room Temperature
2 TBSP Olive Oil
Yeast Packet (Enclosed)

Pre-heat oven to 425*. I use a pizza stone..heat that in the oven for 30 minutes
Using a KitchenAid Mixer:
In the large bowl of the mixer combine water and yeast. Stir/whisk to dissolve. Let sit for 5 minutes.
Mix 2 eggs and the Olive oil ~ Add to the water ~ Yeast mixture.
Blend briefly with the paddle of the KitchenAid Mixer.
Add the Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix again using the paddle and blend about a minute. Scrape the bowl. Leaving dough in the bowl, split the dough in half. Using warm water on your hands will make it easier to manage the dough. Cover with Plastic wrap and a towel. Rise for 20 minutes.
Grease 2 Pizza pans. My pans are 12". Using wet hands, spread out the dough to cover the full pizza pans,, making an edge/crust.

Bake on the pizza pans without toppings for 7-9 Minutes. (I did not do this step the video). Remove from oven. (***SEE FOOTNOTE***)

What I did was. After I spread out the Dough I topped it with:
Desired amount of Pizza Sauce.
Sprinkle on desired amount of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
I also added a little bit of Shredded Asiago Cheese (Optional)
Bake for 10 Minutes on Greased Pizza Pans.

In the mean time I had a Pizza Stone warming up in the oven.
Remove the Pizzas from the oven then Top with:
Clean and dried off 12 0z. Bay Scallops lightly sprinkle with Salt.
Add desired amount of Black Pepper and Garlic Powder
Place the Scallops on top of the Cheese.

In a Frying Pan,, fry up 1# of Bacon. Drain on paper towel then crumble into pieces.
Sprinkle the Bacon on top of the pizza.
Remove the Pizza from the Pizza pan and place on the Pizza Stone. If you do not have a pizza stone you can continue baking it on the Pizza Pans. I only have one Pizza Stone. While one is baking.. I remove the other one from the Pizza Pan and place it on a wire rack so it does not get soggy.

My Pizzas each took 25 Minutes to bake on the Pizza Stone.
I slide my pizzas back onto the Pizza Pan and cut them into slices,, then placed the slices on a wire rack so they do not get soggy. This Pizza can be Frozen. Make sure it is completely cooled before wrapping in Plastic Wrap. Defrost and heat up on a Hot Pizza Stone for about 10 minutes.

I wanted to experiment with the dough this time, so I did not Pre-Bake the Dough and it came out fine. However if your not comfortable doing what I did,,, then Pre-bake it without the sauce for 7-9 minutes then add the Toppings and follow the rest of my recipe.
Most recipes do call for Pre-baking the dough. I was curious if it would bake and it did.
