Quick and Easy Gluten Free Dairy Free Pizza

Quick and Easy Gluten Free Dairy Free Pizza

Pizza is one of those things that’s really hard to find allergy friendly. There are a decent number of options around but it’s really hard find good gluten free dairy free pizza. It just never tastes as good as the real thing.

Because it never seems to taste as good, store products and restaurants usually add lots of unhealthy ingredients so that you like it and your tastebuds crave it. We definitely don’t want to be putting that kind of stuff in our bodies either so we’ve pretty much just given up on allergy friendly pizza, aside from a very sparingly cheat meal pizza, but we tried this gluten free dairy free pizza out for quick and easy recipes while traveling.

It’s a super quick and easy recipe that is great for traveling, as long as you have an oven wherever you are staying. If you’re staying somewhere with a full kitchen, this pizza is a great alternative to all of the pizza restaurants out there that have gluten free but not dairy free pizzas, or vice versa.

*When we are at home we make as much of our own food as possible, avoiding packaged or processed items, but when we are traveling we can’t always do that. We try to remain as healthy as possible with these recipes while not stressing over every detail. It’s important for us to stay healthy, but it’s also important for us to continue to live and enjoy traveling.

Testing Pizzas

One of the only pizza places we knew about that served both gluten free and dairy free pizza was the chain restaurant Blaze Pizza. Although it’s great to get these allergy friendly options, the other ingredients in the pizza are not healthy. If it’s the only option while traveling, it’s better than nothing but making a quick pizza in the hotel room might be a better option.

We’ve tried the store bought pre-made pizzas but these too have the unhealthy ingredients meant to get you hooked. Freshly making your own from scratch would be the best way to guarantee the ingredients, but that’s too difficult while traveling. The Naked Crust Pizza still has a few questionable ingredients (like guar gum) but it is the best option while traveling.

We love pepperoni or sausage on our pizzas, but you can easily make this an entirely vegetarian pizza. This crust that we use does contain eggs and honey so it would not be considered vegan, but there might be some other crust options out there that you can use to make it vegan.

We bought two of these pizza crusts for the two of us so we could each have leftovers. I think that the leftovers heated up even better than the fresh pizza.

The prep time for our pizzas was less than 10 minutes, what took the most amount of time was slicing the pepperoni (we also have a celery allergy so we were limited in our pepperoni selections as well). We left our pizzas in the oven for about 20 minutes, longer than what the box said because we like the crust and pepperoni to get a little crispy.

The Crust

We chose the Cappello’s Naked Pizza Crust because not only is it gluten free, but it is also grain free and does not have any unhealthy oils in the ingredients. It is also paleo, vegetarian, dairy free, soy free, non GMO, and yeast free.

The ingredients in the Naked Crust include: eggs, almond flour, arrowroot flour, cassava flour, organic coconut milk (organic coconut, water, organic guar gum), coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, psyllium husk, lemon juice, sea salt, apple cider vinegar, and honey.

It is not really fluffy and doughy or crispy and crunchy, but it was still a really good crust for allergy friendly. It kind of reminded us of a graham cracker texture (not the taste, just the texture).

Capello’s also makes a Keto Crust that is still gluten free, grain free, soy free, vegetarian, and yeast free. If you do not have an allergy to dairy you could try out their Keto crust or they also make a few different pre-made frozen pizzas that have the same allergy free options as the Keto crust.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Pizza Ingredients

We found all of our ingredients at our local Whole Foods store, but you might be able to find them at other health food stores, amazon, or maybe even a regular grocery store.

  • Capello’s Naked Pizza Crust – The best option that we’ve found for pizza crusts.
  • Mezzetta Sauce – They have a few different flavors; we chose the roasted garlic. The sauce is not organic but it is one of the few that we could find that doesn’t add any sugar.
  • Miyoko’s Mozzarella – you will need a cheese shredder for this cheese. We found a tasty looking homemade vegan mozzarella that sounds amazing and has very few ingredients, but Miyoko’s is good for traveling.
  • Gusto Pepperoni or other meats like Italian Sausage or Chicken – We used Gusto because it doesn’t have celery added to it and it is still nitrate free.
  • Vegetables: Mushrooms, Bell Peppers, Spinach, Zucchini, etc.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Pizza Directions

– Preheat the oven to 425 degrees (according to the Naked Pizza Crust box)

– Shred the Cheese, Slice the Pepperoni, Cook the Meat (for Sausage, Chicken, etc.), Slice or Chop the Vegetables

– Take the Pizza out of the box and unwrap it

– Sauce up your pizza crust straight out of the sauce bottle

– Spread the cheese across your pizza (we think with the vegan cheese not too much is necessary because when it heats and clumps together it gets creamy and thick)

– Add your desired toppings (no need to cook the vegetables ahead of time)

– Put your pizza in the oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until your desired crispness

– Top the pizza off with some sea salt and oregano and enjoy (be careful because it will be very hot!)

Storing the Leftovers

Although it looks small, 2 to 3 slices were enough to fill us. There should be plenty leftover unless you are sharing the pizza. You can store the leftovers in the fridge and they taste just as good heated up in the oven the next day. We usually don’t eat leftovers past a day or two but depending on what you put on them (meat or vegetables) they could last a little longer in the fridge.

Give the pizza a couple of tries before you decide whether you like it or not because as usual, we think most of these allergy friendly foods take a little time to grow on you. It’s not that fluffy, doughy, cheesy pizza we all miss, but it’s a better option than the majority of stores and restaurants. It is usually really difficult to find pizza options out at restaurants that fit multiple allergy restrictions and are healthy, so it is nice to have this as an option.

This gluten free dairy free pizza is such a quick and easy dinner option, and is really great for travel. Let us know if you try out the pizza recipe, if you try any other crusts, or if you have any other ideas on what to top the pizzas with!
