I started some polydough! My spin on Paul's polydough is a double batch of his recipe with some instructions mixed in from Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon: 8 cups warm water, 8 tablespoons APC vinegar, 2 tablespoons sea salt, 1 cup coconut oil, and enough of whatever gluten-free flours are immediately on-hand to get a doughy consistency (e.g. oat flour, coconut flour, quinoa flour).
I learned that the differenece between batter and dough is that batter moves more like and liquid and sticks to the sides of pans, whereas, dough sticks to itself more. Then, I will let the dough sit for at least 24 hours (maybe longer).
This is mixing the ingredients:
This is the batter consistency. I realized I needed to add more flours to get this batter to become dough.
And now, it's dough!
I added some more oat flour and quiona flour along with water and APC vinegar after 24 hours. Now, I am going to wait 48 hours of fermenting before I use the dough.
I put the toppings on the vegan and gluten-free pizza I'm making with the polydough. I put olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, tomatoes, onions, and garlic on it.
This is the crust being made.
These are the toppings being put on the pizza.
Being at 3000 feet above sea level, I am baking the pizza at 375 Fahrenheit for 50 minutes. This is the finished pizza and it being put in the oven.
This is the finished pizza out of the oven, and it being sliced. Kind of like the bread that I tried making, the pizza crust ended up being dense and crumbly. It came out more of like shortbread or cornbread with pizza toppings on it.
I made a personal pizza today! I used Paul's Poly Dough recipe but scaled it down to a 1/8th recipe. It was the perfect amount. For toppings I used some homemade tomato sauce, dried oregano, ground venison, bell peppers, garlic and mozzarella cheese.

Making the sauce from scratch.
We used a pizza stone in an oven. I'm getting the dough prepped. I cooked it for 5 minutes before putting on the toppings.
Toppings on, pizza into the oven at 425F for another 20 minutes.
Perry is pleased with the first pizza!
The only evidence that I actually made 2 pizzas because we ate the other too fast!
