Best Ever Gluten Free Deep Dish White Pizza

Gluten Free Deep Dish Chicken Pizza

On last week's episode of the Great British Bake Off, the contestants tackled hand-tossed pizza. Admittedly, with gluten free pizza, it'd be pretty difficult to hand toss it since there's no gluten in it to give it the stretchyness it needs. So instead, this is a tried and true recipe for deep dish gluten free pizza. You'll absolutely love it! The recipe is for a chicken-based white pizza but you should use the toppings you like best--anything and I mean anything will taste delicious on this base and you won't even believe it's gluten free.

5 Bonfire Night Gluten Free Dinners

These five gluten free meals are perfect for serving on Bonfire Night while you watch the fireworks!
5 Gluten Free Meals for Bonfire Night

Bonfire Night, the 5th of November, Guy Fawke's Night -- no matter what you call it, it's the perfect time for getting together with friends and family under a blanket of stars on a chilly autumn night and watching the fireworks overhead. Add in a warming bowl of something hearty and delicious and you're all set for celebrating in style! 
 
Bonfire Night is one of my favourite nights of the year--we love to drive around, seeing all the glowing bonfires and watching the fireworks over the city from the comfort and warmth of our car. We usually pick the highest spot that overlooks the city, park our car and watch the fireworks explode, filling our tummies with snacks and hot drinks. The night usually begins with a hearty meal at home beforehand and we're suckers for something warming and filling and inherently autumnal.
 
Below you'll find 5 of the best gluten free comforting meals to enjoy on Bonfire Night. I've also included my favourite indulgent gluten free sticky toffee pudding brownies and a super easy recipe for lactose free pumpkin spice lattes you can make at home and fill a flask with before you head out! Remember, remember, the 5th of November!

Gluten Free Portuguese Custard Tarts

For years I've seen Portuguese custard tarts in shops and restaurants and could never bring myself to try them. It was something about the perceived texture of them that put me off. It's such a shame because these little treats are absolutely incredible! They're easy to whip up but look as if they take an absolute age.

A note on the texture: they've got the feel of crème brûlée! Infact, that's essentially what these tarts are: mini crème brûlée in a flaky pastry crust. There's nothing to worry about, just whip up a custard base like for homemade ice cream and you're all set to go! I've stuck with the traditional approach and added in a pinch of cinnamon and made mine out of puff pastry as they'd do in Portugal. But you could use shortcrust pastry if you can't find ready made gluten free puff.

Now, the contestants on Great British Bake Off made their own puff pastry from scratch, which you can certainly do yourself, but be warned, making gluten free puff is crazy enough to drive you insane. Even the shop bought gluten free puff pastry can be difficult to handle!

Gluten Free Dairy Free Chocolate Lava Cake

Y'all. Lava cakes or molten cakes are absolutely amazing and they're often the star of the dessert menu at restaruants and you know what? They are incredibly easy to make! You'll especially love these as there's not too much sugar, and they're gluten free and dairy free-oh yeah!

Lava cakes are the most dramatic cakes -- you cut into it and they ooze rivers of hot molten chocolate like lava. The trickest thing is making sure you delicately remove them from the baking molds because the slightest knick and they'll gush too soon, ruining the dramatic moment. I served ours with a dusting of icing/confectioner's sugar and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but these are yummy with fresh fruit or custard or whipped cream, too.

Oh and you know what? You can totally make these the day before a big party or event! All you need todo is make them as the recipe states. After they have cooled for 10 minutes, wrap them in plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate. Then, when you are ready to serve, remove the cakes from the ramekins or molds and onto a plate and microwave for about 30 seconds - watch it carefully, too long and they'll start to ooze!
