First of all, why isn’t Margherita pizza spelled like a margarita? Auto-correct is very confused.
My lunch yesterday was so delicious, I just can’t NOT share it with everyone. I’ve had such a hard time finding delicious gluten free versions of my favorite things, that when I found these gluten free, frozen, ready-made pizza crusts, I was uber-skeptical.
BUT, I made one yesterday and it was seriously phenomenal… Better than any other GF pizza crust I’ve ever had. (and dare I say, better than non-GF pizza too??!) I found them in the organic freezer section of the grocery store. In most of the grocery stores in my area, this section is near the produce, for whatever reason. (there is also a store-finder on their website, linked above)
ANYWAY, here’s what I used to make this, but obviously feel free to experiment. I know I’ll be making a buffalo chicken pizza in the near future. I also did not even come close to eating this entire thing, so the other half will be packed in my lunch! (update: this tastes great leftover! I cooked it in the toaster oven for 13 minutes @ 375)
– 1 Gluten Free Pizza Crust
– Olive Oil
– Garlic Powder
– Fresh Basil
– 1/2 fresh Tomato, sliced
– 1/2 ball fresh Mozzarella Cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 375.
2. While preheating, rub a little bit of Olive Oil on to the frozen crust and sprinkle with Garlic Powder.
3. Slice Tomato and place on the crust.
4. Put Basil and Mozzarella cheese on top of Tomato.
5. Put on cookie sheet and place in oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your crust.
NOTE: I used a tube of refrigerated basil because I never seem to use enough when I buy it fresh and it always ends up going bad… So I put 1 tablespoon directly on the crust after putting the garlic on… It tasted exactly like fresh basil, and it won’t go bad for two more months. win win win.
Happy Tuesday, y’all! :)
