One thing you might miss when going gluten free is Delivery Pizza! This is actually pretty simple to do at home if you just make one simple tweak to how you normally make pizza at home!
First I start with Udi’s Gluten Free Crust. I can find this at our local Kroger’s for a pretty reasonable price (almost the same as gluten crust!)
Next I use a very simple, jarred pizza sauce. By simple I mean something with very small number and natural ingredients. I like to use Mid’s pizza sauce. It’s usually just a few dollars in our Krogers.
Next you can put on any toppings you like.
Here’s how I made the pizza below.
- 1 Udi’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust
- 1-3 tbs Mid’s Pizza Sauce
- Shredded Cheese (sometimes I use Mexican style…no seasonings.., sometimes just mozzarella)
- Hormel Pepperoni
- Fresh Green Pepper
- Canned Mushrooms (I prefer canned to fresh for some reason!)
- Cooked Bacon (I just use leftover I’ve frozen or refrigerated)
- Garlic Powder to taste (optional)
- Onion Powder to taste (optional)
Preheat oven to 375. Layer pizza sauce, garlic & onion powder, cheese, then toppings onto gluten free pizza crust. Bake for 7-10 minutes. Once cheese looks nice and melted and toppings hot, switch your oven to broil for 1-2 minutes. It’s important to keep an eye on the pizza at this point! Watch until the cheese really starts to bubble and the edges of the pizza turn a golden brown.
Optionally: When you get ready to switch to broil, add a sprinkle of fresh cheese on top to help hold all the toppings together.
Ultimate Taste Test! So for our oldest’s birthday party, I made these Gluten Free Pizzas for all the kids. They were simpler with just cheese or pepperoni since that’s what they preferred. I got lots of compliments from the 10-11 year olds on the pizza!
