Why I like gluten free, gluten free pizza
I know this one’s coming, but this is a gluten free pastry.
A gluten free puff pastry.
And you could easily make this vegan as well if you want.
Gluten free pizza is one of my favorite foods, and I love making gluten free pizzas.
You can even make this gluten free if you don’t have a vegan option.
This gluten free dough was inspired by my grandmothers favorite pizza crust, and it’s gluten free because of all the dough ingredients.
It’s perfect for a vegan pie.
It is filled with fresh, sweet, flaky, delicious vegan mozzarella cheese, butternut squash, basil pesto, and the perfect amount of pumpkin puree.
There are lots of toppings to choose from.
It has all the basics, like a slice of pie crust and a drizzle of caramel sauce.
I love to serve this vegan pizza with my vegan pasta sauce, but I also have a gluten-free pizza topping to go with it.
You could also serve this gluten- Free Pizza with a salad or with a vegan meatball.
