Pesto Pizza

By Ange's Table

Good morning to you.  How has your week been so far?

I pray that all you need to happen this month, happens for you. 

Do you follow a specific diet?  Is it because of health issues or do you just prefer to eat a certain way?

I developed a multitude of allergies in my 30’s and therefore need to eat a very clean diet.  I need to avoid all nuts and seeds, lots of raw fruits and veggies.  And lately beef and pork.  But there are still those times when I want something special.  Something different.  Something like pizza.  Yes, pizza.

And I’m not talking about a cauliflower crust pizza.  Those are great, but not when I’m in the mood for pizza and a beer.

So far, in all of my years of needing to follow a gluten free diet, the best pizza I have made is with gluten free @Bisquick mix.  You mix the ingredients, spread it out on the pan and bake the shell.  Then add on your toppings, bake again and dinner is ready.

This is definitely a “cheat meal” for me, since I used real cheese and a few slices of tomato.  Using Pesto as the base gave this pizza the most amazing flavor.

Since this is something that I do not do often, I allow myself to indulge.

What is it that you have made mostly along the lines of your diet lifestyle, but still considered a “cheat meal?”

Gluten Free Pizza

Adapted from @Bisquick GF  Mix
  • 1 1/3 cup Bisquick GF Baking Mix
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp seasoned salt mix
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 large eggs, beaten

Preheat the oven to 425’F.

In a large bowl, combine the baking mix, basil and salt.  Mix well.

In a large measuring cup, beat eggs with water and oil.  

Make a well in the dry mixture and pour in the wet.

Use a whisk to mix well.

Line a pizza pan or baking sheet with parchment paper.

Spread out the batter as thin as you can.  It will puff up while cooking.

Bake the crust for 15-20 minutes until it is firm.

Remove from oven and let cool before adding the toppings.

Top with your favorite flavors.  Bake again for an additional 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.


Pizza is definately a meal that I would love to have more often.  What is your go to cheat meal?
