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!

Chebe

DryMixes

I officially have a new gluten free love, its called CHEBE. I learned about it for the first time while I was planning my menu for the Gluten Free Camp I will be cooking at over the summer. I was told kids go nuts for this stuff. This is the first gluten free box bread mix I have used and I must admit I was SHOCKED by the results. This stuff has been around for awhile and it really is something special. I love any product that is easy to customize and this stuff is really great. I used it for the first time during my super bowl party and was very pleased by the results. They make a huge range of mixes and frozen doughs. The recipe is originally based off of a Brazilian Bread traditionally made from tapioca. Most of the mixes require you to add milk or water, eggs, a little oil and cheese. I have played around with leaving cheese out and also with substituting salsa and tomato sauce for milk or water. They all worked great and I am excited to keep playing with this stuff. It all comes in a small box and it super each to keep in a cabinet and always have on hand.

Whats even better about this products is the company. I had the pleasure of talking to the president and he was just amazing. He explained how his wife is forced to eat gluten free but they had been creating the product long before her diagnosis. He is passionate about the product and is creating it for all the right reasons. He loves to support the gluten free community and is doing some amazing work. A great product + a truly good company = a fantastic product for me. Chebe bread is really a Guilt Free Foodie Cutie All-Star!

I will continue to post all my creations using all the products they offer but I wanted to share two easy recipes with this review.
