Pizza Pizza Pizza

Since I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2005, my mom and I have been on a quest to find a good gluten free pizza. We did find one AWESOME place out in Doylestown PA, called Jules Pizza, and sometimes when I’m home my mom and I will go out there for a special trip. (They also have delicious non-gluten free pizza. ) But I figured I’ve been cooking long enough now, why don’t I try to make my own homemade pizza! I am not quite ambitious enough to try to make my own gluten-free pizza crust, (maybe in the next few months that day will come) but for now I bought Udi’s Pizza Crust. (I like the Udi sandwich bread, so I thought I’d give the pizza crust a try.) I made two-12 inch margarita pizzas, with marinara sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese and basil and followed my mom’s recipe. It was pretty tasty! I would have preferred the crust to be a little bit more crispy—but all and all a pretty good pizza!

If anyone has found a good gluten free pizza crust,  please comment on the blog, because I’d love to hear about it!!
