The easiest way to bake gluten free breads and pizza

If you think back into the not too distant past, gluten free breads were a challenge to find. Thankfully, it’s much easier to source these days and gluten free mixes mean you can even bake gluten free breads easily in your own home.

We include Glebe Farm’s White Flour and Seeded Brown loaf mixes in our gift hampers because they produce the most wonderfully soft flavour-filled loaves. They  taste good at any time of day. No surprise then that each bag contains enough to make four loaves.

The Mix
Glebe Farm bread mixes are gluten free because the more traditional wheat flours have been replaced with gluten free rice flour and potato starch. The mixes are also free from methyl cellulose, GMOs and other chemical additives, making them a sound healthy choice.
The baking couldn’t be easier either.
 
Baking: Bread machine or Oven Bake?

The mix is prepared for bread makers and ovens – so you can choose which every method suits you.

Of course, if you’re invited Paul Hollywood around for afternoon tea, you might want to kneed and prove in the traditional way. But for everyday, a loaf made in a bread maker tastes just as good as it if were oven-baked.

For even great flexibility, you can choose whether to make a yeast or non-yeast loaf too.

So how about pizza?
