Homemade Pesto

For as long as I can remember, pesto has been one of my favorite sauces. Whether it’s for pasta, pizza, or something else entirely, I think it’s great! And it’s so easy to make at home! 🙂

Gluten-Free Pizza

Happy Monday, everyone!

Last week was simply filled with pizza. Kinda went a little overboard on that one… But it was really yummy!

Gluten-Free Pizza

Monday night I made gluten-free pizza with what has become my favorite go-to bready recipe. It’s based on these paleo dinner rolls by Paleo Spirit.

The dough isn’t very finicky, which, with gluten-free baking, is an amazing discovery!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

What you’ll need:

1 cup tapioca flour

1/3 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup water

1/4 + 1/8 cup olive oil

1 egg

Start by mixing the tapioca and coconut flour in a medium bowl. Stir in water and olive oil. Add the egg and mix until thoroughly combined.

Divide dough (batter) between two 8-inch cake pans, and spread until evenly coating bottom.

Spread

Bake in 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes until crust is golden and bubbly.

Cooked crust

Then top with desired toppings. I used marinara sauce, mozzarella, basil and oregano.

Bake again until cheese is melted, and enjoy!

Have a wonderful week! I’ll see you on Friday!
