We love Pizza. A lot. It’s a super easy and fun meal to make together as a family. These are some of our favorite ingredients for you to whip up a delicious pizza night. Due to our dietary needs we make ours Gluten and Dairy Free. Yes it is possible to have a pizza taste good that is Gluten and Dairy free! I know, I know, I was skeptical too…but it is goooood! Give ‘er a whirl and let me know what you think.
Pizza dough. (make from scratch or use GF pre-measured bags from grocery store. i.e Pamela’s or Bob’s Red mill)
Sauce: (you’ll have extra so I freeze for next time)
1/2 Can Tomato sauce
8oz Tomato paste
2T Garlic minced and grilled
1Tea Italian seasoning
Have fun and imagine whatever suites your fancy! We enjoy any or ALL of the following:
Canadian bacon/sausage/pepperoni/cherry tomatoes/spinach/peppers/pineapple/olives
Mozzarella cheese (we use Daiya for a DF option)
3-4T Parmassan is yummy if diet allows
Make dough according to instructions. *Heads up- you usually need to make 1-2 hours ahead of time to allow time to let rise. Then bake dough prior to putting toppings on.
While dough is baking I cook the garlic in some butter (DF) then add to a medium bowl with the tomato sauce, paste, and seasonings.
In the remaining drippings from the garlic and butter I grill the cherry tomatoes (cut in half and face down in pan).
Once the dough has baked from 8-10 minutes remove from oven and slap some sauce yumminess on it. Kids love this part. Last, pile on the toppings of your dreams. Can’t go wrong with this part. Stack it high.
Bake until cheese melts. 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
Here’s some images of our pizza deliciousness… so simple and so good. If I can do it, believe me, you sure can. Kids have a blast helping out too.
Happy pizza night folks! Mmmmm
