4 egg whites at room temperature

Place all dry ingredients in mix master and mix together. Prepare yeast in warm wate. With mixer running add oil or butter 1 tablespoon at a time, giving each time to incorporate

Add 1 egg white at a time. Add milk.

At this point, flour mixture should resemble wet sand. Pour yeast water in and let mix for a minute or so. If too wet, slowly add more rice flour 1 tablespoon at a time.

Dough should be able to be handled, like a regular yeast dough. Dump onto a generously greased pizza pan and place mixer bowl over top, so dough can rest for a while.

Gently push dough out from middle toward edge of pan. Place crust in a preheated 425 oven and bake for 12-14 minutes before topping with your favorites. Place back in oven for 12-14 minutes to finish.

We always par-cook our veggies and fully cook meat before topping on pizza. This recipe makes an extra large crust. It can easily be cut in half for 2 medium or second crust can be frozen for another day! Grease bowl before placing dough into freeze.
