Pizza Pizza Pizza

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


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.
