Salad Pizza

Zia's Kitchen Salad Pizza

Zia’s Kitchen Salad Pizza

So my love affair with pizza continues and I do believe it will never end now that I have found Cup 4 Cup Pizza Crust Mix! It continues to deliver every time! This time around I even used leftover dough to make cheesy bread sticks as you can see on Zia’s Kitchen Facebook page.  The entire family, Mama Sis, Nonna, Ladybug AND our resident picky eater Littledude loved them so much I have a feeling they will be requested in the future.

I do wish that gluten-free items and mixes were not so pricey, the Cup 4 Cup Pizza Crust Mix is a bit expensive so we can’t really afford to have it that often,  however I must say it really is worth the splurge when we do!

This month the great people at Organic Girl Greens sent me something I have never seen at my local Publix, a Fresh Herbs and Greens mix. After munching on a bit of it raw I have to tell you this is one of the tastiest salad mixes I have ever had!…

Gluten Free SuperGreen Calzones

IMG_6379

I don’t even know where to begin I am so excited.  I have posted many times about my search for gluten-free pizza crust that was more then just “it’s not bad, it’s ok”.  I was just hoping for taste, I didn’t even dare to dream about ease of preparation! I mean gluten-free dough is always difficult to work with right?

Oh no….no no no no no.  I appears I have found it.  The Pizza Crust Holy Grail!

I must pause and catch my breath….

Well in my case I’m eating pizza all the time for research purposes.

Yeah, that’s the reason.

I am still on my quest to be able to make really amazing Gluten Free Pizza and I keep trucking along.  Toppings are not the problem.  I have my sauce dialed in. I do everything from simple Margherita to a plethora of fresh amazing toppings.  …

Pan Pizza

In this house most Friday nights are “pizza night”, a night where I make another go at making gluten free pizza from scratch. Yeah I live a wild and crazy life…. I know….. I know

So here we are again on my quest for pizza that doesn’t taste so….gluten free.  There are a fair amount of pizza dough mixes on the market it appears <I just did a quick Google search> most of them pricey.  Soon however, I am going to have to resort to ordering a new brand off the internet as I think I have tried Bob’s Red Pizza Crust Mix every which way you can.  Many different types of pizzas and calzones have been attempted with varying degrees of …well success is not the correct word here, let’s go with results.…

Pretty Pizza

Only 2 posts and already a theme. Looking over my photos from the past 2 months to prepare for this I noticed my recipes / experiments lean quite heavy towards one food group.

Pizza.

Yes Pizza is a food group, well in my world it is. Going Gluten-Free is sometimes a pain in the ass sure, but I am fine living without most baked goods, breads, pastas etc.  Sure every now and then I get jealous of people biting into a light and fluffy piece of cake, or a real honest to goodness Italian Hoagie (Sub to most of the US unless you are from Philadelphia or New Jersey)
but I have a way to deal with it.  If it’s absolutely incredible and sure to be worth it, I cheat and take a bite or two.  I am a VERY lucky Gluten-Free person, …

Polenta Pizza Please

I’m going to start this off with a hit, because, well starting off with a fail wouldn’t entice you to come back I am sure. I am also starting out with a VERY simple, rather quick and easy one.

Mini Polenta Pizza’s 

Not everybody loves polenta the creamy corn-based dish from Italy.  My late grandmother (who taught me so much about Italian cooking and even authored a cookbook) called it “peasant food”, a status that polenta has had for centuries, generally made by the poorer class as the ingredients were much cheaper than the expensive wheat and flours it took to make pasta.  You can check out the History of Polenta and learn more about its origins. In this family we happen to love it….
