LEMON, PINE NUT, BASIL PIZZA

Pizza might as well be a food group for the Graham's. If we're having a cheat night, we always want pizza. Since I've been trying to go gluten-free I've been trying to find fun replacements for my favorite meals. This pizza leaves you wanting nothing. In fact, I think I like it better than our typical fare.

Lemon, Pine nut, Basil Pizza


You will need:

  • Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix
  • Pizza Sauce (I used Muir Glen's Organic Pizza Sauce)
  • Olive Oil
  • Seasoning of your choice: Italian, red pepper flakes, oregano, etc
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Basil
  • Pine Nuts
  • Juice of 1/2 of a lemon
  • Robusto or parmesan cheese


    Method:

    1. Follow instructions on pizza dough mix. I love that it makes two pies. For this, I divided the dough into two parts and froze one for a quick weekday dinner.
    2. After dough has risen, spread out on to a cookie sheet and then coat with a T of olive oil and the seasoning of your choice. Bake for 7-9 minutes.
    3. Top dough with sauce and mozzarella cheese. Bake for 11 minutes or so. Then add basil leaves and pine nuts. Cover toppings with shredded robusto cheese and stick back in the oven until cheese is bubbling. You don't want to over cook the basil.
    4. This is a unique option for pizza that my sister schooled me on. After the pizza comes out of the oven, squeeze the juice of 1/2 a lemon over it. Delicious!

    2. I second that on the Bob's pizza crust! When M was little I used it a lot to make her egg/dairy free pizza crust. Now we mostly eat Amy's pizza, but you reminded me to go get some and make it again! Good luck tomorrow...can't wait to hear! I have a guess and I'm typically always right so we'll see!

      2. She can have the daiya cheese one and the roasted vegetable! She was getting really tired of the Amy's line up so I just got some more Bob's and we made it up tonight with egg replacer because of the egg allergy...she chose daiya mozzarella cheese, fresh garlic, tomatoes, and mushrooms all from the farmers market and she loved the squeeze of lemon idea and scarfed the whole thing up (and so did we!) You totally got me on the lemon squeeze girl!!!! It was awesome! Congrats on baby girl! That is so awesome and fun!

    3. That pizza looks so good that it made me hungry. What kind of crust did you use? And how did you cook it?
