    Makes: 1 pastry crust

    • 225g (8 oz) wheat gluten free self raising flour (Doves Farm)

    Prep:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

    1. Mix all the flours and dry ingredients together, so they are well combined.
    2. Add the egg and enough water to bind the mix together. Add the water very slowly, a little at a time, don't make the mix too wet.
    3. Turn the mix onto a floured work surface and knead the dough for at least 2 minutes.
    4. Now have a cup tea while the pastry rests.
    5. Roll out the pastry on a well floured surface and use as per your recipe.
    6. Do not overcook this pastry. It will not go a golden brown colour but will stay light in colour. This is normal.


    This pastry also freezes very well.
