Ever wondered if you could make a healthier or more creative pizza? Well, you can! My friend Parker and I show you how to make a GLUTEN-FREE PIZZA BAR in this post and in our VIDEO, too. I made a pizza that I heard about on National Public Radio, inspired by Pete Zaaz Pizzeria in Brooklyn. Believe it or not, it had crushed Cheez-Its**, pepperoni, & mozzarella. It was super crunchy on top & very yummy! Parker made one with chili flakes & mushrooms, lemon zest & arugula. Below, are some favorite toppings that my family & friends enjoy. We had a lot of fun and we hope you do, as well!
(**Glutino makes a gluten-free cheddar cheese cracker that can substitute for the Cheez-Its topping if you want to stay completely gluten-free)
Make sure to check out our slide show below with photos of our pizzas.
My Favorite Combo: Tomato sauce, Pepperoni, Mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, and crushed Cheez-Its
Parker’s Favorite Combo: Tomato sauce and LOTS OF pepperoni and Mozzarella cheese.
My Mom’s Favorite Combo: Akawi cheese (or Mozzarella), arugula, lemon rind, chili flakes
My Father’s Favorite Combo: Tomato sauce, brown mushrooms, spinach, mozarella and goat cheese
Dessert Combo: Cocoa-Almond spread (It’s like Nutella, but is made with almonds instead of hazelnuts and it is *fair-trade) and slices of green apples and strawberry slices. *Fair-trade means that workers get a fair price for their work making the product. Learn more about fair-trade.
This is a great idea for parties and after Turkey day when people are tired of turkey leftovers and cooking.
