This week I am hosting the weekly gluten-free menu swap and I chose gluten-free pizza as the theme of the week. I love pizza and love trying new combinations & crusts, so I hope to see some great ideas this week. Over the past year I have tried some new crusts. I have a new favorite, Bob’s Red Mill pizza crust mix. I also use Pamela’s Bread mix for pizza crust or Carol Fenster’s recipe. As far as toppings go, Jon prefers the traditional marinara sauce, mozzarella & pepperoni, occasionally. I like to mix things up. I like Buffalo Chicken pizza, veggie style pizza and my newest favorite is a pizza that I top with Trader Joe’s Tomato Chutney, smashed chickpeas, feta or goat cheese & spinach. It is so good. What are your favorite crusts & toppings?

Manda from Asparagus Thin is making pizzas from around the world this week. I am especially interested in the deep dish polenta pizza..YUM! I also love the song she posted at the top of her post – it will be in my head all day now. :)
In my Box is making a series of one-pot meals this week. Again, polenta has caught my eye! A mention of a Mexican pizza made on Udi’s crust also caught my eye – I love to sing the praises of Udi’s!
Heather from Celiac Family has a great menu planned! She goes through her favorite pizzas (frozen, crusts & restaurant). I hope she can find a ZPizza soon, they are one of the best restaurant gluten-free pizzas around!
Cheryl from Gluten-free Goodness is making Coconut Curried Lentils and I just might have to invite myself over for dinner! YUM!! She also tried out a yeast & grain free pizza a while back that looks really good. I just may give that a try in the near future.
Esther from Lilac Kitchen is talking about making a pizza with a sweet apple base. That sounds awesome to me, so I do hope she shares if she does!
