There is nothing our family likes more than pizza. Living gluten and dairy free has not slowed us down. It has however made me a lot more creative and we are eating amazing pizzas now, not just cheese and pepperoni.
So far I have made:
Spinach and Artichoke Dip Pizza
Old Bay Farmers Market Vegetarian
Of course there has been the typical pepperoni, ham and pineapple and BBQ chicken. But anytime I can clean out the refrigerator with great leftovers and put them on a pizza, I’m saving time and money.
Today I’m sharing my Mexican Pizza on Carrie’s Ginger Lemon Girl blog. She has started 30 Days Gluten Free Quick & Easy Meals.
Yep, that means the recipe is on her blog today. Diane’s Mexican Pizza.
I used a combination of great farmers market finds and what was in my refrigerator. I used both tomatoes and tomatillos, cheddar and mozzarella Daiya cheeses, jalapenos and mushrooms plus some key Mexican spices. I hope you will give it a try and let me know what you included and what you changed.
Another way to build a great pizza is to use leftovers from the grill like kebobs. They have that great flavor that are wonderful on a pizza. A pizza is also a great meal to make when you don’t have enough of a particular ingredient, especially a protein. You can really stretch out your budget.
That looks phenomenal, Diane! How does it taste cold for breakfast? That's my measuring stick. 😉 Off to check out the specifics over at Carrie's and leave a comment. That's such a wonderful series that she's hosting, but comments have been sparse. I think there are a lot of quiet readers, unlike you and me. LOL
Shirley- No one has ever thought of me as quiet for sure. I didn't get to eat it cold, it was gone that night. I'm having a craving for it again and I think we'll be eating this for dinner tonight. Those ingredients are always on hand.
Yum, going to check out out now! I still have not made GF pizza from scratch. (closest I've come is using Pamela's mix) Shame on me!
Alta- Nothing wrong with a mix that just has real ingredients in it. They're handy. I've not used Pamela's mix. What's it like? I think it has rice which is why I've not given it a try. The pizza is a great way to use up those leftover bits in the frig. Give it a go and let me know what you came up with.
I made this pizza over the weekend and it was absolutely delicious! I threw some extra goodies on it too – Tastybite's Chunky Chickpeas – which added a delicious extra kick to it. This recipe was great and I definitely recommend it. I also recommend Tastybite for gf and dairy free meals, which I serve for my family all the time. They're preservatie free, all natural, low fat/sodium/calorie and only take 90 seconds to heat up. I've been obsessed ever since. Happy cooking! Cheers!
Penny- I love the idea of adding the chickpeas to the pizza. Now I have to go make that tonight. Hmm, I think we cleared out the jalapenos over the holiday. Off to the market! Thanks for the idea.
Been on vacation, and just getting around to see what everyone's been doing. Your pizza really looks fabulous. I love all the varieties of pizza you make!
Heather- Thank you! We do love our pizza around here. They are usually created by me cleaning out the frig. I hate to see food go to waste. Welcome back from vacation.
