With all the hype these days about going gluten-free, have you taken the time to discover what gluten is?
Gluten is a special type of protein found in foods such as cereals, certain grains and wheat. One of its main purposes is to keep the elasticity intact in foods during the fermentation phase of food production. Gluten is what makes bread “chewy,” and prevents other foods from having a sticky, doughy-like texture. Many foods that are processed and available for purchase contain a lot of gluten, which is essentially unhealthy for you.
For many, the thought of giving up pizza is almost unimaginable. Luckily, someone developed this recipe for a gluten-free personal pepperoni pizza, so no one will have to.
- 1 container Pillsbury® Gluten Free refrigerated pizza crust dough
- ¾ cup gluten-free pizza sauce
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
- 30 slices gluten-free pepperoni (about 2 oz)
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Grease 2 cookie sheets and hands.
- Divide dough into 6 pieces; press each into 6-inch round. Place 3 rounds on each cookie sheet. Bake 8 minutes.
- Top with remaining ingredients.
- Bake 6 to 9 minutes longer or until crusts are deep golden brown and cheese is melted.
