Veggie Pizza: Gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free

Pizza is definitely one of my favorite foods.  Although I do wish we could order pizza every now and then as an easy dinner, it's not possible with Little Guy's food allergies.

So what do you do when you can't order pizza?  Make it yourself!

After trying a few different off-the-shelf gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free pizza mixes, my favorite by far is Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Mix.  Even though the directions include eggs, they also offer egg-free directions using flax-seed meal.

Pizza is such a great meal option because you can customize it for your family's taste buds   Our favorite basic pizza includes:
  • Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Mix
  • Jar of tomato sauce (I like Wegman's Tomato Basil sauce for $1)
  • Daiya Mozzarella cheese
  • Veggies: Cherry tomatoes, spinach and mushrooms
  • Seasonings: Basil and oregano (dried red pepper for me on my slices!)
I just follow the directions on the Bob's Red Mill package, top the pizza with about 1/4 of the jar of tomato sauce, sprinkle on Daiya Mozzarella cheese, add fresh veggies like spinach, cherry tomatoes and mushrooms, and then sprinkle with basil and oregano.

You could almost call this a garden salad pizza.

Here's a bird's eye view before I pop the final product in the oven. Looks veggie-licious!

Here's the finished pizza. I'm always amazed by how much the veggies shrink!


Little Guy has had toddler-moments when he won't eat the veggie packed pizza. So, I've made pizzas that:

  1. Include less veggies on top
  2. Include veggies that are "hiding" underneath the cheese. He doesn't seem to mind them if he can see more cheese on top than veggies.  

Here's one pizza where I used less spinach.

I also added pepperoni to this one for my Hubby.

Want a slice?

Here are my favorite pizza-making products!

What's your favorite homemade pizza?

That looks really great! In my house we usually just leave off the "cheese"

That's a great option too Colette! Sometimes you don't even miss the cheese when you add a bunch of tasty toppings!
