Matt and I were going to go out for gluten free pizza tonight because I really didn’t feel like cooking and I really didn’t feel like getting dressed up at all. The more I thought about it, the more I was convinced that the gluten free pizza might not be such a good idea because just because a pizza is gluten free doesn’t mean it is dairy or grain free or seed oil free. So I decided to make yet another pizza recipe from the blog Stir It Up. This version, though, I made in a way that I could totally eat everything about it, from the crust to the toppings!
I am calling it pizza-ish, because although it looks like a pizza, the crust does not hold together like a real pizza crust. It was delicious and I am excited to make it for the boys when they get home from camp.
