Love Pizza Night!

Valentine's Day Pizza!
We all need pizza night! For our own sanity and to keep everyone happy.  It is no easy task to deliver on good Gluten Free Pizza either!  Have you tried to track down a place that sells gluten free pizza?  Not to mention:

  • Will it break the bank?
  • Does it taste good?
  • How far do I have to drive?

Luckily we live in Southern California which gives us a few more options, but inevitably the Quality > Cost > Distance triad factor in every time. For that very reason we've learned to adapt at home. We even make our own from time to time and pack them up for the kids when they are off to a birthday party or other even where regular pizza is served up. Using a cookie sheet and some parchment paper, you can even get creative with your shape of your pizza and toppings and make something just as good - (better in time!)

Crust Ingredients:
1 Cups GF flour mix
(Pamela's Baking Mix works)
2 Eggs
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
3/4 Cup Soy Milk

8 oz Soy Mozzerlla Cheese
8 oz Herb Goat Cheese Crumbled
12 oz Hormel Turkey Pepperoni
1/2 Cup Marinara Sauce

Optional Toppings:
Roasted Red Peppers
Roasted Yellow Peppers
Artichoke Hearts
Diced Ham
Daiya Cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place a sheet of parchment paper on the cookie sheet. Combine all crust ingredients in a bowl until smooth and using a ladle or large spoon, spread the batter into the desired shape. The thinner you like your crust the thinner you should spread the batter!

Bake the crust for 10 minutes - 13 minutes for a crispier crust. Remove the crust from the oven and top pizza with sauce, cheese and choice of toppings. Bake an additional 10-13 minutes and serve.

Ingredients I like to use that are easy to come by and keep it GF/CF!
