Best Pizza Ever - and happens to be gluten free!

This is an amazing and amazingly easy pizza I can make (you can make) on a moment's notice. From the time you think of it until the time it comes out of the oven is approximately a half hour. Don't think you're getting short-changed because this pizza is gluten free. It is delicious and I actually like it better than any other pizza I've eaten! And that includes the Greek Pizza from Good Earth restaurant in Roseville. No kidding!

Get the Food for Life brown rice tortillas (3 or 4) out of the freezer (you'll find them in the gluten-free freezer section of your grocery store) and set them on the counter to thaw while you get the pizza toppings ready.

 Pizza, just before it goes into the 460 degree oven for the first time


Food For Life brown rice tortillas, 3 or 4
1 can (or possibly 2) tomato paste
Oregano (fresh, if you have it)
Coarse-ground black pepper
1/2 onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
Sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil and basil (Not a necessity, but oh, sooooo good! I find this at the olive bar in my local supermarket)
Kalamata or black Moroccan olives, pitted and sliced
Mushrooms, fresh or canned, sliced
1 can of chicken breast, drained and shredded
Fresh parsley
Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
Feta cheese (I like to get the block and grate my own, cuz I like the crumbles to be small)
Mozzarella cheese (not necessary, but I like a little mozz. on this pizza as well.

Pizza, just before going into the 460 degree oven the second time


Spray pizza pan with a GF non-stick cooking spray.
Lay tortillas out on pan, cutting and piecing to fill pan.
Brush tomato paste onto tortillas, covering every bit of tortilla.
Sprinkle on the black pepper and oregano, onion and red pepper.
Lay olive slices and mushroom slices on top,
Sprinkle top with chicken, then the sliced Romas
Top with fresh parsley
Put in preheated 460 degree oven for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and quickly sprinkle cheeses on top.
          I only do this because I don't want to spill cheese in my oven!
Return pizza to the hot oven for another 8-9 minutes.
Cheese should be slightly golden at the edges, not just melted.

In your hurry to get to this delicious pizza, don't forget to turn off the oven. :-)
Yeah, I've done that. It isn't a good idea to keep an oven at 460 while you're also running the A.C. :-(  But I only did it once.

Thanks so much for the gluten free recipes. I sincerely appreciate them because my son's new girlfriend has celiac disease and I have to come up with new dinner recipes. Pizza for young people! Fantastic.

Look at all those beautifully, fresh toppings! YUM! Gluten free or not, it looks so good I'd like a slice right now!

Looks very tasty, and I'm sure you could vary the toppings to suit your family.....

See if it were me, the olives would never make it onto the pizza as I would have eaten every last one before they made it onto the pie. That looks sooo good.

Lots of yummy love,

Sounds excellent, although I admit that I still crave the thick crusts. I've been craving pizza for some time now.
