The Gluten-Free Pizza Fest, Day 7: Breakfast Pizza with Chorizo

Oh boy, do I have a special pizza recipe for you. As you know already, I live in Austin, Texas (ATX). Austin is known for it’s obsession with breakfast tacos, and they are damn good too. I decided to make my favorite breakfast taco into a pizza. Chorizo is delicious, and it adds a nice depth of flavor to this pizza. It is quick and easy to make. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

We are getting closer to The Gluten-Free Pizza Party! We have added some amazing sponsors to the lineup. Sponsors include: Tito’s Vodka, Lonely Gourmet and Hail Merry. Are you a local business interested in becoming a Gluten-Free Pizza Party sponsor? Email me at:

  1. All your pizzas look so good. I have to get on the stick to work on that gfdf & rice free crust. Actually I should say grain free crust. I’ve not checked on your site either. You may have already figure it out for me. I’d like to make a few batches and freeze the shells. Then I could whip up these great pizzas!

  2. That pizza looks fantastic. I love how it’s breakfast on a pizza – my husband would absolutely love trying this! :)

  3. Oh my word. I am in love.

  4. What brand of gluten free chorizo did you find? I have not been able to find any!
