Some nights you just don’t feel like cooking, and that’s where frozen pizza comes in!
Gluten free products can sometimes have very disappointing flavors and textures, but I’ve found that Udi’s Gluten Free has some great tasting products that don’t feel like cardboard! I love their bread for toast or sandwiches, their rolls for dinners and their cinnamon rolls for a sweet breakfast alternative! Yum! You can find the Udi’s brand in many different grocery stores from Food Lion to Whole Foods. Some of Udi’s products have NON-GMO oils and ingredients, like their whole grain bread, but the pizza doesn’t have the NON-GMO certified label anywhere, so unfortunately it’s not.
I also like this product because it has REAL cheese instead of dairy-free soy cheese like some health food brands. Eating large amounts of soy is known to impair proper thyroid function, and since I have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, I just feel better about avoiding soy all together.
Fortunately the husband has been very open to eating gluten free with me at home, so for a quick, easy dinner we bought two boxes of Udi’s gluten free pizza, one cheese and one pepperoni. The husband can demolish a whole pizza by himself without even blinking, so we always buy more than enough!
I usually add some sort of fresh veggie to frozen pizza, so this time I added slices of red bell pepper.
Just follow the directions on the box: bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes until the crust crisps up and is a golden brown color.
Then, BAM, dinner’s ready!
The crust is crispy with a hint of sweetness, the cheese is ooey gooey and the tomato sauce is very “herby” with tons of flavor. It’s so good, I didn’t even feel the urge to douse it with Parmesan cheese or ranch. (Pizza crust dipped in ranch is a guilty pleasure of mine!)
The husband and I have definitely found our go-to frozen pizza!
Stayed tuned for my version of a recipe for flour less pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
