Recipe For Gluten Free Pizza


I have searched high and low for a decent gluten free pizza recipe. Nothing. Nada. Either you end up with a saltine cracker type crust or something fit for Swamp Thing (slimy). I have given up on a homemade crust. I have found, instead, a pre-made, shelf stable crust (scary, I know) that actually tastes great. They are made by Schar. Winn Dixie was clearing them out, so I bought one box. I should have bought them all. I am hoping to find them somewhere else SOON! (On a side note, Domino’s now makes a very tasty gluten free pizza, too, but it isn’t guaranteed gluten free, which is stupid). So for this month’s Improv Challenge (Tomatoes and Peppers), I went for pizza. I used leftover spaghetti sauce that was filled with big chunks of Italian sausage as my tomatoes. I opened a jar of roasted red peppers for the peppers. I also couldn’t resist using a can of sliced black olives. I adore them on my pizza. I was out of mozzarella due to the move, but provolone made a great substitute. I shared with some of my non-gluten free family and they loved it.
