Healthy Junk Food: 5 Easy Gluten-Free Pizza Ideas
We often have to think twice before taking a call on whether to order-in a cheesy greasy pizza or go with something healthier. But what if you were given a chance to make a healthy pizza? The world has decided to free their pizza bases of gluten, the protein responsible for most digestive disorders.
Several bloggers have meddled with the traditional recipes and created some amazing substitutes. Here are 5 ways to make yummy gluten-free pizza bases:
1. Pizza Potato Skins
Mozzarella loaded Pepperoni Pizza Potato bites sprinkled with Italian seasonings should make for a delicious appetiser. Potato-lovers would understand. See how Center Cut Cook makes it an easy affair to prepare the yummy snack.
2. Deep Dish Skillet Sausage Pizza
A perfect Chicago-style low carb, gluten-free pizza prepared by layering the cheese and sausage meat at the bottom. A base made of cheese and sausages? That sounds amazing. Carolyn’s recipe on All Day I Dream About Food will tell you the rest.
3. Zucchini Pizza Boats
The combo of zucchini, tomatoes and basil is full of nutritional yeast (instead of cheese) mixed in marinara sauce along with onions and olives to add to flavor. Now we call that yummy! Here’s Sonnet’s variation of a nourishing pizza meal on her personal blog In Sonnet’s Kitchen.
4. Mini Polenta Pizza
How can caramelized onions and rainbow chard sprinkled on a corn base not make your mouth water? Not to mention with an additional flavor of herbs including basil, rosemary, thyme and oregano. Get the special recipe from Sarah Yate’s A House In The Hills.
