Making Gluten Free Pizza

Gluten Free Pizza

It's not super easy to find a good gluten free pizza.  We love to make pizza as a quick and easy meal from time to time.  And, we wanted to share with ya'll one of our favorite combinations. 

NY is famous for their pizza.  And, myself, being from VA, I had no idea how to make a really good pizza until I met Chad.  I've learned now that there are certain key ingredients to make it really yummy.  

Key ingredients:  

Fresh mozzarella cheese
A sauce base
Toppings - meat or veggies 
The Crust - we like Udis Gluten Free Pizza Crust.  It comes with 2-9" crusts in a package and that works out perfect for us to have as a meal.

One of our discoveries was just how yummy pesto is on a pizza.  One of our favorite combinations is pesto with onion, fresh garlic, & pepperoni. We have found that you can buy different brands and it will have a completely different taste.  Our favorite to use is a pesto we find at Sam's Club.

Chad's marinara sauce is also a great tomato sauce base.  (Click here for the recipe.)  And, that goes well with adding other vegetables and meats.

Pesto has a strong flavor, so we add a thin layer onto the crust with a spoon.

Cut the cheese into thin slices and layer it over the pesto.

Add the pepperoni, onions, & garlic (or, toppings of your choice)

It's also important to allow it to bake until the cheese is turning brown.  We usually bake it in the oven for 20-30 minutes.

 Sprinkle with oregano, parmesan cheese, & garlic powder to taste.

buon appetito!

Would love to hear about your gluten free pizza crust or your favorite pizza combo.
