So yes, Pat and I have cheated on our gluten free diets several times in the last few months. It’s so hard not to!! And what do we cheat on it the most with? Pizza!
Pizza is is a hard thing to give up…with its delicious doughy crust and its hot melty cheese. And of course the ease of ordering or picking up a pizza on a night you don’t feel like cooking. We’ve tried a couple of frozen varieties of gluten free pizzas over last few months and the majority of them were not appetizing.
Tonight, I decided to try to make a gluten free pizza at home from a mix! I picked up Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix and tried it out. The directions were easy and the ingredients were limited. All you need is the mix, which includes a packet of yeast so you don’t need to buy it separately, and then some water, 2 eggs, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. And then of course some pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and any other toppings you might like. We kept it simple and just went with just the sauce and cheese this time around.
This mix actually made enough for two whole pizzas! And it was really tasty! I would definitely continue to purchase this mix so we never have to miss out on pizza again!
