Gluten and lactose free homemade pizza - Glutén és laktózmentes házi pizza24

The family has always loved pizza. When I first found out I had celiac disease, I thought about how many delicious things we would have to give up. Then and there, 3 years ago, I also bewailed the pizza, one of the family favourites. Of course, in time I found out that this was not the case at all. 😊 I’ll never forget the joy of the first time I put it on the table gluten and lactose free. Having four children, there was never silence at family meals, although we never tried to be silent. But it was a good sign when I put something on the table and after a few minutes there was only silence.
These times I would say:
“Sooo?”
The answer was, “Mum, can’t you see? We are eating! It’s delicious! 😍 Even gluten free.” 😊

Ingredients for four persons

For the dough:
3.5 dl water
500 g gluten-free all-purpose or bread flour
50 grams of yeast or a packet of powdered yeast
1 tsp salt
1 teaspoon of sugar
2 tbsp olive oil

For pizza sauce:
5 cm leeks
100 ml concentrated tomatoes or ketchup
1 teaspoon of pepper
1 teaspoon marjoram
2 cloves of garlic

For the topping:
2 dl lactose-free sour cream or yoghurt
2 medium garlic cloves or 1 teaspoon garlic powder

ham to taste
sausage to taste
bacon to taste
200 grams grated cheese

Preparation

I put the ingredients in a blender and thoroughly kneaded them.

I coated the bottom of the pizza pans with oil, took the dough in four portions and flattened them with oiled hands on the bottom of the pizza pans. I set the oven to dogh-rise, for those who don’t have this program set the oven to 30-40 C, put warm water in the bottom of the oven and put the doughs to rise for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile I made the pizza sauce, I put a teaspoon of salt on the garlic. I cut the leeks into very thin slices and fried them in a little oil. I added half of the tomato sauce and stir-fried it all together, and mixed in the other half of the salted garlic.

I added the garlic tomato juice, spices and chopped tomatoes to the boiling sauce. My tomato puree was quite thick, so I added a little water to cook the tomato chunks. It is ready when it thickens nicely and the tomato pieces are no longer quite visible.

Half of our family is intolerant to tomatoes so I made pizzas with yoghurt topping for those who can’t eat tomato. I mixed sour cream with garlic powder. I chopped it up, prepared the ones I’d like to top the pizzas with.

After 20 minutes I took the dough out of the oven, it was starting to rise nicely.

I used three different flavours on one pizza. I slathered the pizza sauce first, then the toppings, then I sprinkledput grated cheese on the top.

I put it back in the oven to rise for another 20 minutes.

After the time was up, I set the oven to 200 degrees and baked the pizzas for 20 minutes. The one at the top was nicely browned by this time, I took that one out. I set the oven to toast (if you don’t have this program, set it to a much higher temperature) and the next pizza was baked in 3-4 minutes. I put the bottom two pizzas higher up on the pan holder, and toasted them, taking into account who prefers it toasted or less crispy.

Mindig is szerette a család a pizzákat. Mikor kiderült a cöliákia akkor elsőre azt gondoltam, hogy mennyi minden finomságról kell majd lemondanunk. Akkor és ott, 3 éve, elsirattam a pizzát, a család egyik nagy kedvencét is. Persze idővel kiderült, hogy ez egyáltalán nem igy van. 😊 Sosem felejtem azt a boldogságot, amikor először tettem az asztalra glutén és laktózmentesen. Négy gyerek mellett sosem volt csend a családi étkezéseknél, bár nem is törekedtünk erre. De az már jó jel volt, ha az asztalra tettem valamit és pár perc múlva csak a csöndet lehetett hallani. Megszólaltam ilyenkor:
– Naaa?
Jött is válasz:
– Anyuci nem látod? Eszünk! Finom! 😍 Gluténmentesen is. 😊

A pizzasütők alját bekentem olajjal, a tésztát négy felé vettem és olajos kézzel ellapogattam a sütők alján. A sütőt kelesztésre állítottam, akinek nincs ilyen programja az 30-40 fokra állítsa a sütőt, meleg vizet tettem a sütő aljára és betettem a tésztákat kelni 20 percre.

Közben elkészítettem a pizzaszószt, a fokhagymára tettem egy mokkáskanál sót. A póréhagymát nagyon vékony szeletekre vágtam, kevés olajon megsütöttem. Hozzáadtam a paradicsomszósz felét és összesütöttem, a másik felébe belekevertem a sós fokhagymát.

A forrásban lévő szószhoz kevertem a fokhagymás paradicsomlét, a fűszereket, az apróra vágott paradicsomot. Az én paradicsompürém elég sűrű volt, ezért öntöttem hozzá egy kis vizet, hogy a paradicsom darabok is megfőjenek. Akkor kész, ha szépen besűrűsödik és a paradicsom darabok már nem nagyon látszanak.

Gluten and lactose free homemade pizza - Glutén és laktózmentes házi pizza4

Gluten and lactose free homemade pizza - Glutén és laktózmentes házi pizza5

Mivel nálunk a család fele intoleráns a paradicsomra ezért joghurtos feltéttel készítem azoknak akik nem ehetik meg. Összekevertem a tejfölt a fokhagymaporral. Összevágtam, előkészítettem azokat amikkel a pizzák tetejét meg szeretném pakolni.

Három féle ízesítést használtam egy pizzán. Megkentem először a pizzaszósszal, majd a feltétekkel és megszórtam sajtreszelékkel.

Az idő letelte után 200 fokra állítottam a sütőt, 20 percig sütöttem. A felső tészta szépen megpirult ekkorra, kivettem. Beállítottam pirításra (akinek nincs ilyen program az vegye fel jóval nagyobb hőmérsékletre) és 3-4 perc alatt meg is sült a következő pizza. Az alsó kettőt feljebb tettem, igy pirítottam meg az utolsó kettőt is, figyelembe véve ki hogyan óhajtja, pirultabban vagy kevésbé ropogósan.

This is a ready-to-prepare main course. It can be stored in the fridge and you only need to start the steamer 40 minutes before consumption. It can be served with steamed rice or potatoes. It is gluten-free because of the filling, the recipe can be found here.

Ingredients

2 servings of the gluten-free meatballs
1 Chinese kale
side dish

Preparation

I made the filling according to the recipe. I took the leaves of the Chinese kale apart and washed them.

The leaves do not need to be cooked separately, as they will also soften by the end of the steaming process. I put a portion of filling in each leaf and rolled it up.

I put the stuffed leaves on the bottom layer and the sliced potatoes on top. This way the dish and the accompanying side dish are ready at the same time. I steamed it for 40 minutes.

Unfortunately, it’s not very pretty to serve, as the leaves of the cabbage tear easily, but you need the 40 minutes of steaming to cook the meat properly. The taste makes up for it, though. 😊 Serve with sour yoghurt to taste. 😋

Ez egy előre elkészíthető főétel. A hűtőben lehet tárolni és fogyasztás előtt 40 perccel kell csak a párolót elindítani. Párolt rizzsel, burgonyával fogyasztható. Gluténmentes a töltelék miatt, melynek a receptje itt található.

Hozzávalók

2 adag a gluténmentes fasirozottból
1 db kínai kel
köret

Elkészítés:

A tölteléket elkészítettem a recept szerint. A kínai kel leveleit szétszedtem, megmostam.

A leveleket nem kell külön megfőzni, mert a párolás végére azok is megpuhulnak. Egy-egy adag tölteléket tettem a levelekbe és föltekertem.

Sajnos nemigazán lehet szépen tálalni, mivel a káposzta levelei könnyen szakadnak, de kell a 40 perces párolás, hogy a hús is elkészüljön a forró párában. Az íz viszont kárpótol. 😊 Ízlés szerint savanyú joghurttal, tejföllel tálalhatjuk. 😋

I don’t make it very often, although my husband loves it. He has a sweet tooth, so anything made with sugar is good. 😋 Luckily it’s easy to make it gluten and lactose free. In Hungary it’s served as a main dish, here in Belgium it’s more like a cake stuffed in buttered pastry.

Ingredients for 4 portions

250 g rice
1 liter lactose-free milk
sugar to taste for the rice
1 packet vanilla sugar
4 eggs
50 g gluten and lactose free pudding powder
sugar to taste for the pudding
1 liter milk
butter to grease the baking dish
2 tablespoons gluten-free breadcrumbs
apricot jam

Preparation

I cooked the rice in the milk with, adding the sugar and the vanilla sugar. When it was ready, I took it off the heat and let it cool for at least half an hour.

I added the yolks of the eggs to the rice and mixed it well. Then I whisked the whites until stiff.

While it was baking, I made the vanilla sauce. The important thing is to mix the pudding powder with more milk than prescribed, so it will be thinner and will flow better than the usual pudding.

You can make it in advance and just bake it in the oven later. It goes with any side dish, this time I served it with rice. Gluten and lactose free because I used my béchamel sauce recipe.

Ingredients for 3 portions

3 chicken breasts
400 grams cauliflower
2 portions of my béchamel sauce
salt to taste
pepper to taste

Preparation

I cut the excess off the cauliflower and washed it. I salted and peppered the chicken breasts.

Chinese chicken with sesame seed, gluten and lactose free

Chinese chicken with sesame seed, gluten and lactose free

Chinese chicken with sesame seeds gluten and lactose free7

We really like tasty, special foods, including Chinese stuff. In the old days, when we could eat gluten-containing foods, I used to make a lot of sesame chicken. Sometimes on Sunday afternoon I would just start cooking it and of course there was not a piece left. It’s also true that while all four of our children were living at home with us, there was no chance of any food being left over. 😁
We had to use starches during a 2020 food challenge. That’s when I remembered that I hadn’t yet made my sesame chicken recipe gluten-free. So the time came, this recipe was born, gluten free. The boys tasted the result, and said … hmmm yummy… 💖 pure orgy of taste.😊 😅
One very important thing to say, I had no idea how the original was made. I was just looking for the flavors we used to get at our favorite Chinese restaurant. 🙈

Ingredients for 3 portions

3 chicken breasts
2 tablespoons gluten free flour for the meat
12 tablespoons gluten free flour
7,5 tablespoons corn starch
7 grams baking powder
3 eggs
a little lactose free milk to taste

For the coating:
6 heaped tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons sambal
2 tablespoons of paprika cream
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame seed oil
2 tablespoons water
gluten free sesame seeds to taste

Preparation

It takes longer to describe the ingredients than to prepare the dish. 😉 I cut the meat into larger cubes and mixed them with 2 tablespoons of flour. I mixed the rest of the ingredients into a batter, a bit thicker than if I made pancakes.

Chinese chicken with sesame seeds gluten and lactose free1

Chinese chicken with sesame seeds gluten and lactose free2

I prepared the coating (you can substitute the sambal with another paprika product, I had this one at home and it had a slightly spicy flavour which was great). I put everything except the sesame seeds in a saucepan. I let it simmer for a few minutes so the sugar melted, the flavors mixed nicely, and it started to thicken. Then I added the sesame seeds while stirring. I brought it back to a boil.

Chinese chicken with sesame seeds gluten and lactose free3

I heated the oil. I don’t usually set it to maximum, on my induction cooking plate it’s on setting 7 (of 9). I rolled the floury meats in the batter. I didn’t let any of the batter drop from the piece, but put it quickly into the hot oil, so the batter remained thick. I turned it a few times while it was cooking. I put the coating back on the fire, and when the meat was ready, I put it in.

I rolled each side in the hot, thick mixture then I put it in a bowl. As the meat cooled, the the coating became firm like a crust. This happened because of the starch added to the flour. I served it with rice this time. 😋

Stefania slice

Stefania slice

Stefania slice 10

Princess Stefánia Klotild Lujza Hermina Mária Sarolta (1864-1945) was the daughter Palatin Joseph’s youngest daughter – who became the Queen of Belgium – and was married at a young age to Franz Joseph I’s son, Rudolf.

After Rudolf’s suicide, the dowager heiress fled the Viennese court, began travelling and then married Elemér Lónyay, a landowner, with whom she lived happily in the castle of Elemér Lónyay, who was later made a count by Charles IV.

She was famous for her philanthropy, and it was under her patronage that the National Stefania Association, the predecessor of today’s Hungarian network of nurses, was founded in Budapest. The couple fled to Pannonhalma to escape the Second World War. Stefania died there.

While living in Hungary, she grew to love the country and its cuisine, and even enriched the Hungarian gastronomy. The main dishes she created, such as Stefánia-style slice, roast and risotto, all have in common that they contain boiled eggs in some form.

The Stefánia slice is delicious when warm with any kind of side-dish and when cold with a salad or in a sandwich.

Ingredients

2 servings from my meatball recipe
3 boiled eggs
6 slices of bacon

Preparation

I mixed the ingredients for the meatballs according to the recipe, while boiling the eggs until hard. I greased a heatproof dish with baking butter.

Stefania slice 1

Stuffed portobello mushroom heads 8

We love Portobello mushrooms. They don’t have a distinctive mushroom taste, so even my husband eats them, though, he’s not a fan of mushrooms. They don’t collapse when baked, they stay juicy. I just stuffed them with my favorite meatloaf. It can be made in advance, so when guests arrive, you just turn on the oven.

Ingredients

2 portions of meatloaf (see recipe)
4 Portobello mushrooms
8 slices of bacon

Preparation

I mixed the meatball ingredients as usual. I divided the filling in two, spreading one half evenly at the bottom of an oiled ovenproof dish.

I divided the rest of the filling into four parts, formed them into meatballs and shaped them to the mushrooms. I coated the mushrooms with 2 bacons and put them in a preheated oven at 200°C for 30 minutes. If the bacon doesn’t become brown, roast on a higher heat for a few more minutes.

Gluten-free meatballs7

This is a basic recipe that you can eat on its own with a side dish, but you can use it as a filling for many other main dishes. I mix it up and it’s ready to cook. I cook what I can in a wok, because it needs only 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil in the bottom, not much fat. I named it gluten-free because of the breadcrumbs that go into it are gluten-free.

Ingredients

300 grams of minced chicken breast
salt to taste
pepper to taste
2 crushed garlic
1 egg
3 tablespoons gluten-free breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon of paprika cream

Preparation

I mixed all the ingredients thoroughly.

Gluten-free meatballs1

Gluten-free meatballs2

With wet hands, I shaped them into even balls and then flattened them with my palm, because it needs less fat to cook them like this. You should only cook them on a medium heat, because on high heat the outside can burn but the inside can still stay raw. I turned them several times, and I cooked them for about 5-5 minutes on each side.

Gluten-free meatballs3

Gluten-free meatballs4

I put them on a napkin to absorb the excess fat from the meatballs.

You can serve them hot with any kind of side dish or salad, but they are also delicious cold, in sandwiches. A great addition to cold dishes.

Chicken with garlic and marjoram & mushroom dressing

Chicken with garlic and marjoram & mushroom dressing

I got some messages saying no one taught them how to cook, please help. If you don’t mind, I’ll share the “educational” recipes here. I remembered that when I started to share my recipes, one of my daughters asked me to write it like I was teaching them how to cook. Then, over time, it turned out that their Spanish, Italian and Belgian friends were visiting the website for my recipes, especially for the gluten-free and lactose-free ones. Behold automatic translation. 😁 I’m not a chef, just a mom, so don’t expect extraordinary things from me. But you can expect tricks you can use when cooking. 😊 This recipe is not only for experienced ones.

Ingredients for 4 servings

8 boneless chicken legs
3 cloves of garlic
salt according to your taste
pepper according to your taste
marjoram according to your taste
vegetables according to your taste, this time I used mushrooms
1 tbsp rice flour
2 tbsp lactose-free sour cream or yoghurt
50ml cooking cream or vegetable cream
some cooking oil

Preparation

1. The first important thing they asked me was how can I roast the meat to golden-brown while it’s crumbly inside. The trick is that you must heat up the cooking oil. It must be hot, not only warm. This time I used cooking butter, and you can see in the picture how it’s boiling because it’s very hot. That’s what I put the chicken meat in. Then I salted and I peppered it.

2. It took only a few minutes, then I turned it. I also salted and peppered this side (I always use freshly ground pepper, because it’s more tasty) then I sprinkled marjoram on the top. After a few minutes, I checked if the other side cooked to golden-brown as well. Then I lowered the temperature, but only so much that it was still baking. I poured about 100ml of water under it. I chopped the garlic into small pieces and I added it. It simmered under a lid for 40 minutes.

3. In the meantime, I cooked the rice, but you can make any other side-dish. You can find the rice in my recipes. After half an hour, I put the mushroom next to it, you can use any other vegetable. After 40 minutes, I took out the finished chicken. I mixed rice flour in the still moderately cooking liquid, added the sour cream and the cooking cream. I boiled it and it’s done.

4. When served, the golden-brown-cooked meat looks very nice, and it’s a surprise that it’s crumbly inside, not dry. If you make it the other way around and you steam the spicy meat first, it is very difficult to cook the meat to the right color at the end because it can quickly become over-cooked.

Enjoy!
