Thin-Crust Gluten-Free Pepperoni Pizza Recipe

Thin-Crust Gluten-Free Pepperoni Pizza Recipe

My husband can't eat pizza with gluten or sugar in the crust. Because that leaves out boxed mixes and frozen pizzas, I decided to make my own. — Angela Sage, Waxhaw, North Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed or olive oil
  • 1/4 pound Italian turkey sausage links, casings removed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup julienned roasted sweet red peppers
  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 17 slices turkey pepperoni

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, mix the almond flour, salt and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk egg and oil; stir into dry ingredients. Press onto a 12-in. pizza pan coated with cooking spray; build up edges slightly. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook and stir sausage and onion over medium heat for 4-6 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink. Spread pizza sauce over crust; sprinkle with garlic. Top with the sausage mixture, red peppers, olives, cheese and pepperoni. Bake 18-20 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 8 servings.
