Gluten Free French Bread (Pizza Dough)

1/4 cup flax meal

2 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons yeast
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
3 egg whites, beaten slightly
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
melted butter, for brushing (optional)
1.In the bowl of a heavy-duty mixer, place flours, xanthan gum, salt and flax meal. Whisk to blend.
2.In a small bowl dissolve the sugar in the water, and add yeast.
3.Wait until the mixture foams slightly, then blend into the dry ingredients.
4.Add the butter, egg whites, and vinegar.Beat on high for 3 minutes.
5.To form loaves, spoon dough onto greased and cornmeal-dusted cookie sheets in two long French-loaf shapes or spoon into special French-bread pans.

7.Cover the dough and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, 20 to 25 minutes.

9.Remove from pan to cool.
If you're not in the mood to cook, the Barro's on Mill and Baseline has a decent GF pizza, too. You can check your local Barro's to see if they have GF.
