Pizza Pizza Pizza

Pizza to most of us is a staple in our diets. What to have on a Friday night after hockey practice?

Pizza

We can easily order a few pizzas from the many suppliers here in Calgary and we can have hot pizza for our families.

But what about when you are gluten free?

It is not a quick take home meal. In fact most of the pizzerias here in Calgary do not have gluten free pizzas. Boston Pizza now has gluten free pizza on their menu and it is good.

Do they make their own crust?

No, they use Kinnikinnick personal size pizza crusts. And you can too!

Kinnikinnick is a Canadian company specializing in gluten free frozen products. And I know myself, when I was first diagnosed they were a product that I used. Now, 4 years later, I still use their products. I especially like their English muffins toasted for my eggs benedict.

Here in Calgary you can get Kinnikinnick products at Safeway stores, and that makes it very convenient for most shoppers. Today I picked up some frozen pizza crusts and that is what I made today for a quick lunch.

Do I usually make pizza crust from scratch? Yes, I usually do. But even myself, I like to have frozen gluten free staples in my freezer for quick meals.

I call this my 5 minute pizza.

It takes longer than 5 minutes, but the 5 minute name is more for the quick and simple convenience of this pizza.

The kinnikinnick frozen pizza crusts comes with 4 squares in the box. There were 3 of us here for lunch so I used three.

Recipe: Personal Size Gluten Free Pan Pizza

3 kinnikinnick pizza crusts
1 red pepper sliced thinly
Leftover spaghetti sauce (link to spaghetti sauce recipe)
Pizza sauce
Hot sauce
Shredded mozza cheese

Place 3 pizza crusts on a large round pizza tray or stone.

I had leftover spaghetti sauce in my freezer and once unthawed used it to top the crusts.

Top with sliced red pepper

Top with a dollop of reg pizza sauce and some hot sauce (we like our pizzas spicy)

Top with mozza cheese

Place pizzas into a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.

Enjoy!

Doing a gluten free daily is very difficult yeah! Its like, you have to sacrifice for everything you love to eat. I know there are ways how to cake them with gluten free but, the real ingredients are not their anymore so it means the real taste is not perfect at all! But having gluten free will help us maintain our body healthy!

Living gluten free does not mean you have to give up on taste. I have found that I rarely feel like I am deprived on my diet. Yes, it is harder but it is worth feeling GUT GOOD!

HI there

l I know how difficult a GF diet is to maintain but really at he price of those rice based carboard crusts I think you could come up with a better option!!
In my house we use a fresh dough we make in advance (without the chemicals) and we have pizza dinner in about the same time.
It saddens me that people have made their gf diets about fast food not good food.
