The Gluten-Free Pizza Fest, Day 9: Artichoke, Bacon and Basil Pizza

Welcome to Day 9 of The Gluten-Free Pizza Fest. In preparing for this food fest, I brainstormed some of my favorite flavors and wrote down different pizza combinations. The combination of artichoke, bacon and basil sounds a little strange but it works.  Trust me. This pizza literally has three of my favorite things. I love artichokes and use them often in pasta dishes, hummus recipes and salads. Bacon of course, is a house favorite. We can’t get enough of it around here. Basil is such a wonderful herb. It is so versatile, and of course, my favorite way to use basil is as a pesto. [Read more...]

The Gluten-Free Pizza Fest, Day 8: Mushroom Pizza

Mushrooms are nutrient powerhouses. They are great sources of vitamin D and potassium, among other nutrients. I love to snack on raw mushrooms with hummus. It is one of my favorite study snacks! Mushroom pizza has been a part of pizza parlor menus for years. Now I know why. The mushrooms add a wonderful flavor to what would be a regular tomato and cheese pizza. It definitely kicks it up a notch. We have two more days of gluten-free pizza recipes. Next up: southwest pork pizza and artichoke bacon and basil pizza. [Read more...]

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!

The Gluten-Free Pizza Fest, Day 6: White Pizza with Capers

Happy Valentine’s Day! Make this pizza tonight for your special date. It is sure to put a smile on their face. The rich, creamy white pizza pairs perfectly with the salty capers. What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? We like to avoid the crowds at restaurants and stay in for this special holiday. This year is my turn to plan (we alternate each year), and we are having pizza, and lots of it. Yesterday, I spent the gorgeous sunny afternoon in my beloved kitchen; baking pizzas and shooting pictures. This is the final week of The Gluten-Free Pizza Fest. You are going to love what we have in store for you this week. Remember, if you want to be a part of the final pizza fest summary, email me your blog post link. [Read more...]

The Gluten-Free Pizza Fest, Day 5: Potato Pizza with Herbes De Provence

Welcome to Day 5 of The Gluten-Free Pizza Fest! We are rolling right along in our gluten-free pizza series. Today’s recipe is a favorite of mine. It’s delicious and perfect for entertaining. A mouth-watering tip is to make a rich tomato soup to serve with this pizza. Dip the potato pizza in the warm soup. It’s the perfect companion.

The Gluten-Free Pizza Party is rockin’ and rollin’. It will be held at Parkside Restaurant on February 24th, from 7-9 p.m. Cover charge is $20 a person, alcohol is separate. If you are interested in trying a variety of gluten-free pizzas, made with homemade and pre-made crusts, then RSVP here. We look forward to meeting you!

The Gluten-Free Pizza Fest, Day 3: Roasted Garlic and Three Cheese Pizza

I’m a firm believer that garlic makes everything taste better. Roasting garlic brings the flavors to the next level. Not only does the garlic turn into a sweet, nutty paste when roasted; it also makes the house smell heavenly. Roast garlic and add it to sauces, salad dressings, pasta dishes, or spread it on a freshly baked slice of gluten-free bread. Your taste buds will thank you. Just like they will thank you when you try this pizza recipe. Cheese + fresh herbs + tangy tomato sauce + roasted garlic = heavenly combination.

The Gluten-Free Pizza Fest, Day 1: Dessert Pizza

Welcome to the first recipe installment for The Gluten-Free Pizza Fest! I am so excited to share this event with you all. I hope you enjoy all the recipes we have coming up the next several days. Growing up, I always loved dessert pizzas made with apples. This is strange, because I am not a dessert person at all. As you can tell from my blog recipe index; I love to create main dishes, snacks and appetizers. Don’t get me wrong…an occasional cookie, slice of cake or key lime pie are delicious.  But, I’d rather have something salty or savory. This pizza is special because it is both savory and sweet. You will enjoy this pizza time and time again! [Read more...]
