Gluten Free Tortilla

Child 3 is now gluten-free. This has caused his world to crash since he believes one of the major food groups is taco pizza. Taco pizza for him is a tortilla shell with pepperoni and cheese dipped in ketchup. So to appease his poor belly, I tried my hand at homemade tortilla shells.  I originally found a recipe on, which is my go-to gluten-free all-purpose flour. However, the recipe calls for shortening which I do not use. Here is my version with  my oh-so-professional picture! HAHA!!

Gluten-Free Homemade Tortilla

3 cups Namaste all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. sea salt
3/4 cup cold butter cubed
3/4 cup chicken stock

Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter and add hot chicken stock. Allow to cool in fridge and then portion into about 10 balls. Flatten with a tortilla press and further roll out using a rolling pin. Cook on a pan sprayed with coconut oil about 2 minutes on each side.

These do not fold nicely like a flour tortilla shell, however, the farmer thinks they'd be soften if we steamed them. The kids made taco pizzas out of them and liked them.
