Hidden Vegetable Pizza


Finding good gluten free pizza is a daily adventure. I found some already made crusts that work great but I missed making it from scratch at home. I have tried a bunch of my own blends and it was never very good but when I tried the Chebe pizza crust blend I was amazed. This stuff is amazing. It was so great I was able to hide vegetables in it and cut some of the fat to make it a guilt free pizza for the whole family.

Ingredients:

Crust –

Chebe Pizza Crust Mix

2 Tbs Olive Oil

2 Large Eggs

1/4 Milk

I did not add the cheese to the crust the box calls for*

Sauce –

1/3 Cup Crushed Tomato

1 Carrot Diced

1 Celery Stalk Diced

1/8 Cup Diced Onion

1 Tbs Oregino

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Sugar

1/2 Tbs Tomato Paste

Cheese –

1 Low Fat Mozzarella Sticks

1/2 Cup Ricotta

1 Tbs Onion Powder

2/3 Cup Chopped Frozen Spinach Cooked and Drained

1 tsp Salt

Start by cooking onion, carrot and celery in a pot until lightly brown and soft. Add tomatoes, garlic, sugar, tomato paste and oregano cook for a few minutes. While sauce is cooking mix all the crust ingredients and knead in bowl. Spray a 14 inch round pizza pan and spread dough on top. Now top the crust with sauce. In a small bowl mix ricotta,salt, onion powder and spinach. Spread ricotta on top of the sauce in small clumps. Shred cheese sticks and top the whole pie with shredded cheese. Spray the outer crust not coated with sauce. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 15-18 minutes until golden brown. Slice and serve hot!

  1. I’ll have to try this crust! I still haven’t found one that I really like — they’re all too flaky, like a pastry, or too thin and crunchy, or just too chewy and not in a good way!
