Revisiting Pizza

Alternative Pizza Pie ~ GF
I've been experimenting with wheat free pizza.  Even bought a bag of gluten free mix you can use to make pizza dough.  It didn't fare well with the youngin' .. made his stomach extremely bloated.  So back to the drawing board.

Fiddling around in the kitchen one day, I came up with a delicious 'crust' for his pizza pie.

For a 6"x 9" glass baking dish.  Preheat oven to 350F.

Ingredients:

Crust ~
2 eggs.
1/3-1/2 cup of cooked brown rice
1/3 cup cheese

Toppings ~
1/2 c marinara sauce
fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup browned sausage, or cooked meat
diced red onion
sliced mushroom
extra cheese for topping
(whatever you like to put on your pizza)

Directions:

Grease the baking dish.  Add the two eggs and cooked brown rice, stirring until mixed well then evenly spread.  Bake in preheated oven about 8-10 minutes, until eggs are set.  Remove from oven and top with 1/3 cup of grated cheese.  Return to the oven for another minute or two until cheese is melted.  Remove from oven and top with marinara sauce and toppings, using the extra grated cheese for the final topping.  Return to the oven and bake an additional 10-12 minutes until bubbly.  Let pizza set for a few minutes before scoring with a spatula and removing slices from the pan.

I made a super deluxe baking pan, double this size, for company last week ~ it was a GIANT hit.  If you like cold pizza the next day, this will satisfy your craving.

In Norway the old saying goes, "Need teach the naked woman to spin". What an excellent idea to use rice for pizza bottom. I shall try it. Gunnar eat non gluten pizza from the store, but not too much. In fact he loves cheese, but has set himself on a "low cheese" diet. His stomach is not so swollen then. He´s a man who loves food and can reicist anything but tempting food :)
