lunch today: gluten-free mini pizzas

        I'm not proud of it, but I have eaten a lot of frozen pizza in my life. I've never been a person that craved pizza. Until I gave up dairy, then cheesy pizza & cheesy bread always sounded good, just not good for me. Now, I make pizzas with Gluten-Free bread mix. I normally make the dough according to package instructions and add garlic powder & Italian seasonings. Roll out the dough and bake at the temperature on the box for like ten or fifteen minutes and then add toppings and put back in the oven.
Pizza I made for Valentine's day
        Today I used my gluten-free rolls, (GF english muffins or GF hamburger buns have also worked for me in the past). Ragu pizza sauce, Hormel Turkey Pepperonis, almond cheese alternative Mozzarella style. (You can use real cheese if you are not dairy-free). I cut the roll in half, add sauce, cheese & pepperonis and then put them in the toaster oven until the cheese is melted and the pepperonis are crisp. I love turkey pepperonis, they get really crisp and are so good. Plus they aren't as greasy as regular pepperonis. This is such an easy lunch & they taste so much better than regular gluten frozen bagel bites or frozen mini pizzas.
                         I love jalapenos on my pizza

I've done my own research and found that those brands are gluten-free, but remember to always double-check if you have a gluten-intolerance because ingredients change all the time.
