When it comes to gluten free cooking you don’t always think quick and easy. In fact, many times it seems like gluten free is harder and more time consuming, but it does not have to be that way. Gluten free can be quick and easy and still taste great.
Today I want to share one of my new favorite quick and easy gluten free meals. It is a quick and easy gluten free pizza.
Now some of you may be wondering how gluten free pizza can be quick and easy, because gluten free pizza is not always easy or quick. With this tip though gluten free pizza can be a really quick and delicious meal.
Udi’s Gluten Free sells a great gluten free pizza crust and they also have delicious gluten free frozen pizza. I love them, but I don’t always have either of them on hand. And since I live in the country, I can’t just run to the grocery store down the street.
I can make a pretty good gluten free pizza dough, but I don’t always have time to make it when my kids want pizza. So I had to come up with a solution to serve gluten free pizza to my family without it taking a lot of time and while using ingredients I always have on hand.
Pizza toppings are pretty easy. I almost always have some sort of meat, cheese, and sauce to put on a pizza. It is the gluten free crust that can be the challenge. The solution I came up with is simple and uses ingredients that I almost always have in my fridge or freezer.
Udi’s Gluten Free Tortillas!
Yes, it is that easy and the gluten free tortillas make a great pizza crust.
In fact, I have been loving these more than my regular gluten free pizza dough. Using a tortilla gives you more of a thin crisp crust pizza. I love a nice thick crust on pizza, but I also love an occasional thin crispy crust pizza. And I have missed those thin more cripsy crust pizzas since going gluten free. Now I can have them anytime I want.
I love making pizzas this way for many reasons, but one of my favorite reasons is because it is an easy way to serve one family member a gluten free pizza, while everyone else eats regular pizza. This works great for family’s like mine where not everyone eats gluten free.
I also like the fact that the gluten free tortillas are smaller than most gluten free pizza crusts. They make it more of an individual sized gluten free pizza. Just enough for one person. Which again works perfectly for personalizing each pizza for different food needs.
Have any of you that are gluten free ever tries this?
