I was starving for something tasty for dinner on Monday. Had no clue what I wanted to eat and was rather listless about the whole thing. I picked up food I couldn’t eat for the family and stared into the cupboards for something, an idea, a recipe, to pop into my little mind.
Right. Nothing happened.
I went to the fridge, opened it and stared at the contents. Nothing pinged.
Went back to the cupboard and my eyes slide over the Schar pizza crusts box. I noticed that the expiry date was coming up and knew I should use it. So, yeah I decided on gluten-free pizza. This should have come earlier as a huge “Eureka!” moment but it didn’t. I was neck deep in crossroads relating to other areas of my life. Choosing and preparing food for myself was rather low on the list.
However, as I pulled out the crust the various items I had previously glanced over in the fridge now practically jumped out at me!
- pasta sauce (doubling for pizza sauce)
- grated parmesan cheese (for richness and add’l flavor)
- sliced portabella mushrooms
- fresh cilantro
- fresh green/red pepper slices
- Thin ‘n Trim Wildfire Buffalo Chicken sausage, diced
- Monterey Jack Cheese
So this is how I built my Schar gluten free pizza. As each layer was placed on the lovely round delicious smelling crust I became more and more excited! When I was done this is what my unbaked pie looked like…
Isn’t it a beaut?? I put it in a hot oven (425 degrees) and baked it until the crust became crispy firm on the edges (approximately 19 minutes). Then, the pie looked, as follows:
I’m the only gluten free one in my home so why was my pizza finished in less than 40 minutes?? Exactly! This pizza came out scrumptious!!
So when you get into a what-to-eat? funk try a Schar pizza crust and the toppings I tried above.
