GF Review: Mama Mary’s Gluten-Free Pizza Crust
We are big pizza fans in our house. One of the things I miss most from my gluten-filled days is a great stone-fired pizza. I love the way the edges of the crust get a little charred and the way the coals flavor the dough. I still haven’t found a gluten-free crust that rivals that taste, but I have come across some great gluten-free pizza options which make me so happy!
There is a wonderful pizza shop in walking distance from our house that makes all of their pizzas available on a gluten-free dough. And they are amazing. But when we don’t feel like walking out to get pizza, we like to make it at home.
Mama Mary’s Gluten-Free Thin Gourmet Crusts are the best pre-made pizza crusts I’ve found. The really cool thing is that this crust is NOT sold in the frozen aisle! At my local Publix, they’re located near the deli section. This crust tastes so fresh and wonderful, and you can get your pizza in the oven faster since you don’t have to allow time for the crust to defrost. But, the crusts can be stored in the freezer for up to a year, so if you want to buy some and stock up you’ll always have them handy when you’re craving homemade pizza.
This dough crisped up really nicely and held up perfectly for the yummy Mediterranean pizza I created.
For the base of my pizza, I spread some yummy pesto instead of traditional marinara sauce. I topped it with sliced mushrooms and sliced kalamata olives. I made my pizza a little backwards and put the cheese on top! I used a combination of mozzarella cheese and crumbled, fresh feta cheese.
Then I sprinkled the pizza with red pepper flakes and baked in a 450 degree oven for about 8-10 minutes until the cheeses were melted and bubbly.
I sprinkled fresh parsley on the pizza, then cut into eight slices. Oh my, this was so delicious! We managed to save two pieces as leftovers and they were fabulous cold the next day, too.
I can’t wait to try more pizza combinations on this yummy crust!
Hugs, kisses + yummy dishes… xoxo
