When I diagnose a patient with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, one of the first foods mourned is pizza.
Mourned with a passion and a fury by the teens, with wistfulness and longing by the adults.
Crunchy crusts, smeared with thick tomato sauce, dripping with cheese, accented by olives or pepperoni.
This is one of the main reasons patients cheat, because they want this so badly.
Or because it is a habitual, happy habit that is incredibly hard to break.
But cheating can lead to even more damage, the inflammatory cascade just compounds. No one should be eating food that makes them sick.
There isn’t a good reason to do this damage.
There are amazing pizza recipes out here in the blogging world, ready for you to seize the flours and bake.
You will, however, have to wait just a bit for my recipe.
You see, this recipe is included in the upcoming Gluten-Free Baking For Dummies
Publication date is December 6th, just in time for Christmas. Till it is published, I can’t share the recipe, but I can show you how to make the pizza and point out all the other variations on this classic treat.
So my challenge for you this month is to bookmark this post, use the links to try all these varieties of pizza till you find one to call your own.
