Before I begin I just have to say that Adam is forcing me to watch Antiques Roadshow. And I actually think I might love it. haha I wish I had some old crazy antique someone gave me that could be worth $100,000. How crazy would that be?
Two women just left knowing their painting is worth$150,000 – $200,000!! Craziness. Anyway… that’s not even what I’m talking about today, I just had to share that with you.
Are there any shows you secretly watch and love?! Maybe shows you watch while hanging out on the couch eating frozen pizza?! And not just frozen pizza, but delicious, allergy and gluten free frozen pizza…
Ever since I was diagnosed with a gluten intolerance, I have been searching high and low for a great replacement to the frozen pizza I used to eat. Ellio’s pizza was always one of my favorites and I honestly think I used to eat at least one a week, and for awhile I swore that it was the best hangover cure in the entire world (and I still believe that).
But it’s hard to find a yummy allergy free pizza that doesn’t taste like it’s gluten free. One of the most important things when I’m tasting allergy free stuff is that it can’t have that icky aftertaste. You know what I’m talking about… all those gluten free and dairy free and soy free foods out there have this weird fake aftertaste that stays with you and I can’t stand it!
Or, sometimes gluten free stuff will have this glue-like texture and taste and it’s just oh so disgusting!
Let’s not think about that now though and let’s put all of the disgusting allergy free tastes in the past because I just tried Kinninnicki’s allergy free pizza crusts!
I was able to taste two of their crusts (and both of them were amazing – even Adam my resident taste tester – said so too and he’s very picky because he knows what normal food tastes like)!
The personal size pizza crusts are free of:
- Gluten / Wheat
What I liked most about both of Kinnikinnick’s pizza crusts was that they were really easy to make. Basically, you take the crusts out of the box, put any desired toppings on them, and then place in the oven for a few minutes and you’re done! It actually took less time to make than I thought and I walked away from the oven for a few minutes only to have to run back over to it because it was done so quickly!
A little more work than an Ellio’s pizza since you have to top it yourself, but half the time when I made those I added my own toppings anyway so the cheese and sauce is easy to place on there. And who doesn’t want to be able to use FRESH veggies, meats, and more to top their pizza. It always makes it so much healthier and better tasting.
There are even some helpful recipe tips and ideas on the back of the boxes to give you some inspiration for your pizza making.
With the thin crusts, Adam and I made some BBQ pizza. It was chicken free, but it would be even better if you wanted to add some, we just didn’t happen to have any and I’ve been trying to cut a lot of dairy and meat out of my M-F diet, once in awhile I’ll have eggs like in this crust, but most of the time I eat Vegan.
What we really liked about the thin crusts was that they weren’t TOO thin. They were crunchy and delicious, but had a nice solid feeling about them, they didn’t feel like they were a cracker about to break, which is what you sometimes may get with a really thin crust.
If you want to make your pizza BBQ chicken, here’s what you do (it’s so simple and just a few ingredients):
- Top the pizza with an allergy free BBQ sauce
- Top with a small amount of Daiya Mozzarella Cheese
- Add thinly sliced red onion, cooked chicken, and any other desired seasonings such as salt, pepper, oregano, I don’t know, whatever you like!
- Tomato sauce
- Daiya Mozzarella cheese
- Sliced Red onion
- Mushroom slices
- Green olive slices (I LOVE green olive on pizza.. seriously, if you like green olive, try it!) If not, then use black olives. Yum!
- Zucchini slices
- Chopped tomato
- Salt, Pepper, Red Pepper Flakes, & Garlic Salt
It was delicious and reminded me of the amazing gluten free pizza that’s sold down the street, though 100x cheaper and yummier because I made it myself!
These pizza crusts are affordable, delicious, and you can pick them up in the freezer section at your local grocery store. For more information about Kinninnicki and all of their gluten free, allergy free products, visit them at:
