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?
