At the end of a long day, it is really nice to have dinner be a simple phone call away. You dial your favorite pizza joint and 30 minutes later, dinner arrives at your door. Unfortunately, gluten free/dairy free pizza delivery has not yet arrived to McHenry county, so it is up to me to either create my own pizza or pull one of the pricey, pre-made gluten free pizzas from my freezer.
Amy's brand does make some pretty tasty dairy free pizzas with a rice flour crust available in the freezer section of select supermarkets. When you are looking for a homemade taste but are short on time, here is a semi-homemade recipe to try. You can swap in any pre-made gluten free crust, but I really enjoy the Breadsmith's seasoned pizza crust. They are available in most all Breadsmith bakery locations throughout Chicagoland. You can buy them and then freeze for later use, but be sure to call ahead to place your gluten free order. Most Breadsmith locations dedicate a certain day of the week to baking their gluten free items. Udi's also makes a very tasty pre-baked pizza crust that is available wherever Udi's breads are sold in Chicagoland. It comes two per package.
Semi-homemade Sausage and Veggie Pizza
1 pre-made gluten/casein free pizza crust (Breadsmith seasoned crust)
1 8 oz. package Daiya Deliciously Dairy Free Mozzarella Style Shreds
1 jar Classico Marinara with Plum Tomatoes and Olive Oil
2-3 links Al Fresco Sweet Italian Style Chicken Sausage, chopped
Chopped sweet peppers (red, yellow, orange)
Baby spinach leaves
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Thaw pizza crust (if previously frozen) and spread marinara sauce on top of crust. Generously layer chopped sausage, chopped sweet peppers, spinach, and Daiya cheese shreds on top of crust. Bake 20 minutes or until cheese melts and crust is golden brown.
