Allow mixture to sit in warm place to rise 10-15 minutes.
Grease pizza pan (I use a cast iron skillet) and dust with sorghum flour and a pinch of salt sprinkled over pan. Coat your hands in olive oil before pressing dough into pan. Cook for 12 minutes. Add toppings and cook for 12 more minutes.

Pizza below is made with my pesto recipe, my crust recipe, hormel turkey pepperoni, large slices of red onions, cornstarch free feta cheese and corn free mozzarella. It’s great with grilled chicken too!
