How Can Gluten Free Pizza Crust Made from Zucchini, Cheese, and Egg Make You Feel Great?
Share a SliceOf course, there is a time and place for pizza. It's a social meal to share with family over relaxed conversation or to graze on during your Friday night movie. When a group of friends gather for a casual meal, pizza is often the most popular choice - a true people pleaser. Completely omitting pizza from your diet may leave you feeling deprived, but for some even having just one slice isn't worth the after effects. But where there's a will, there's a way!
A Lighter OptionTry this gluten free option to gain a new perspective on pizza. The zucchini base is far easier to digest than a traditional one, yet still holds the inviting pizza flavor with the addition of some cheddar cheese. The warming combination of classic carminatives - basil, garlic and rosemary - in the homemade tomato sauce will stimulate digestion and alleviate that heavy, congested sensation. Like most tomato bases, it may be too much heat for Pitta to handle. Add some of your favourite toppings, and include some roasted seasonal vegetables too. Serve with a light salad, kick back and relax.
