You may have noticed by now that I like to experiment with pizza crusts:
Well, last week I came across a “DIY: Gluten-Free Pizza” recipe on MindBodyGreen.com and thought it could be fun to try.
I certainly cannot take credit for this recipe so hop on over to MindBodyGreen.com for the exact specifications. Here’s a general overview:
STEP 1: Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
STEP 2: Prepare wet ingredients. These included 1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt and one egg. Whisk together.
STEP 3: Mix ingredients to form dough. Spread out on parchment paper.
*The dough was EXTREMELY sticky. I sprinkled some additional almond flour over the top which made it manageable.
STEP 4: Bake for 25 minutes, until edges are slightly browned.
STEP 5: Add toppings.
I was indecisive, so I went with “A Tale of Two Pizzas”.
OLIVE OIL + TOMATO + FRESH BASIL + CHICKEN + MOZZARELLA
BBQ sauce + pineapple + chicken + swiss
STEP 5: Bake 10 additional minutes to melt everything together.
STEP 6: EAT!
Z could not stop raving about it. The crust had so much flavor and complimented the toppings as opposed to just being a vehicle for them.
While you can never go wrong with caprese flavors, the BBQ-pineapple won in my opinion.
I love being able to take historically bad-for-you foods and making fresh/healthier alternatives. Not only did this pizza feature fresh veggies and a protein-packed crust, but minimal cheese. I only ended up using 1/2 slice of swiss total! With all the other delicious flavors going on there’s no need to load up on it.
Another recipe to add to the “must make again” list!
