Pizza is a Human Right

One of our biggest points of disappointment when being diagnosed with Coeliac was that we would have to say goodbye to glorious evenings when we would help ourselves to endless slices of pizza filled with all our favourite toppings.

Well times have changed and now not only have most of the restaurant chains introduced gluten free pizzas on their menus, some of the top fast food chains have also included gluten free options too.

Here at Gluten Free Foods, we like to spend time making our own pizza that is filled with all our favourite toppings. So let's check out our favourite topping ideas!

All you need to do is choose a pizza base- either brown rice or white rice (both full of nutritious ingredients) and then have fun in the kitchen!

Goats Cheese and Veggie Special

75g Basil Pesto
50 g Olives
50g sundried tomatoes
100g Soft Goat's Cheese
A handful of Spinach

Spread the base of your pizza with the pesto
Pour boiling water over the spinach (in a colander) and squeeze out the remaining water
Top the base with spinach, goats cheese, olives and tomatoes
Bake in the oven for 20 mins and then season with salt and pepper.

Ham, Mushroom and Rocket

75g Tomato sauce (homemade or plenty of options at the supermarket)
100g Ham Chopped
A handful of rocket
A handful of chopped Tomatoes
75g mushrooms, chopped

Spread the base of your pizza with the tomato sauce
Spread the base with ham, mushrooms and tomatoes
Sprinkle with rocket and season as you'd like
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes

The Classic

75 Tomato Sauce (homemade or shop bought)
100g Mozzarella (good quality tastes best) sliced
A handful of basil leaves, chopped

Spread the base with the tomato sauce
Top with Mozarella
Sprinkle with basil
Season and then bake for 20 minutes

These are seriously easy and are the perfect way of getting the kids in the kitchen!

Enjoy your pizza time- we certainly do!
