Pizza Night – Gluten free

IMG_1694

An option, as a rare treat, is to buy a gluten free pizza mix.  These are usually made from a rice flour and are gluten free.  However, in his very good book, Wheat Belly, Dr Davis points out that a rice diet is not a good option for a no wheat diet.

Here is another great option, which I prefer:

Crust
1 (8 oz) package of full fat cream cheese, room temperature
2 eggs
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Topping
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
toppings – pepperoni, ham, sausage, mushrooms, peppers, fresh basil, dried oregano, Garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350.

Lightly spay a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. With a handheld mixer, mix cream cheese, eggs, pepper, garlic powder and parmesan cheese until combined. Spread into baking dish. Bake for 12-15 minutes, our until golden brown. Allow crust to cool for 10 minutes.

Spread pizza sauce on crust. Top with cheese and toppings. Sprinkle pizza with garlic powder. Bake 8-10 minutes, until cheese is melted.

Enjoy a guilt free, no wheat, “zero” carb spectacular!  Check out Fighter Pilot in the Kitchen for more fun recipes!
