“Pizza and ‘Beer Night” (root beer, that is) has been a Friday night favorite at our house. This stay-at-home date night usually includes pizza, old fashioned root beer, a movie rental, pajamas, some good snuggle time, and a big bowl of popcorn. We started the tradition during our early dating years and have been hooked ever since!
When I discovered I had food sensitivities, thankfully our fun pizza nights were not doomed for all eternity. I found a pizza crust that was both gluten and corn free with few ingredients. If you want home made pizza but don’t want to make the crust yourself, here is a great alternative! And as an added bonus, it actually tastes good.
You can find this frozen crust in the organic section of your local grocery store. Slightly crispy and not too soft. Definitely worth a try. Throw on your own toppings and you’re back in business!
For FODMAP followers, you can make your own pizza sauce out of tomato paste. You can experiment with spices or add a little tomato sauce to make it more juicy.
Homemade Pizza Sauce
- 1 small can tomato paste
- seasonings (oregano, dried parsley, Italian seasoning, sea salt, black pepper, dried basil, etc.)
Mix seasonings and tomato paste together in a small bowl. Taste as you go and add a variety of spices to your liking.
- diced red, yellow, or orange pepper
- mozzarella cheese
- the sky is the limit!
Here is a brand of pepperoni that is also corn-free! More pepperoni for me.
Place frozen pizza crust on pan. Spread your tomato sauce and top with desired ingredients.
His and hers halves. To each his own.
Follow baking directions on the package (375 for about 20 minutes). I like using the convection fan during the baking process to encourage the crunchiness!
Grab some PJs, pop in a movie, and enjoy!
