Pizza Dough
1 Caputo Gluten Free Flour (1 kilo / 1 bag)
3 ⅓ cups cold water
5 tsp salt
5 tsp olive oil
2 ¼ tsp Rapid Rise instant yeast (1/4 oz packet)
Toppings
1 ½ oz goat cheese
1 tbsp honey + more for drizzling
¼ cup chopped pistachios
½ cup fresh blackberries
Tools 
Stand mixer 
Pizza stone 
Small bowl 

  1. Start by preparing the dough: Mix yeast and water together in the bowl of a stand mixer affixed with the dough hook attachment. (Alternatively, you can use a hand mixer with dough hook attachments.)
  2. Add flour to the mixer and mix on low for about 1 minute.
  3. Once combined, increase speed to medium and mix for 3 minutes. Stop the mixer and scrape down the side of the bowl.
  4. Add salt and mix on low for 1 minute then increase speed to high and mix for 2 minutes.
  5. Stop mixer, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the olive oil.
  6. Mix on low for 1 minute then increase speed to high for 2 minutes.
  7. Final product will be tacky/sticky, like frosting.
  8. Cut into 4 equal size (400 grams) balls and wrap in plastic wrap. (Oil your hands when handling the dough, it helps the dough not stick.)
  9. Refrigerate for 8-24 hours, to let the dough form.
  10. To prepare the pizza, preheat oven or grill to 415°F.
  11. Dust a large baking sheet or pizza stone with cornmeal or flour. Shape the pizza dough into a large circle, place on the prepared stone, and bake for 5-7 minutes. (Alternatively, you can grill over hot coals.)
  12. Combine the goat cheese and honey in a small bowl and mix until smooth.
  13. Remove the crust from the oven (or grill) and spread with the goat cheese mixture. Top with the blackberries and return to the oven for 10-12 minutes, until the crust is golden and the blackberries have softened.
  14. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with chopped pistachios and drizzle with honey. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
