Pizzas Need to Look Good and Taste Good
Since people eat with their eyes first, I try to make my pizzas visually pleasing and full of color. When coming up with recipe ideas, I consider taste, color, and texture. There are many gluten free crusts available on the market. The one I used today was by Scharr. I like this crust as it is a bit thicker than some of the other crusts and is sturdy in your hand even when the toppings are piled high!
- 1 Gluten Free pizza crust (I used Scharr Specialty Breads & Wraps for this recipe)
- 1 cup black beans
- 1/4 cup NutCrumbs
- 3 large cloves of garlic
- Sprinkle of crushed red pepper
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 12 slices of red bell pepper
- 1/2 cup cheese
Craft your Pizza One Layer at a Time
On the base of the crust I added crushed red pepper, 3 cloves of garlic (diced), and 1 cup of black beans partially crushed.
Layer 2: 1/4 cup of Nut Crumbs (Spicy) to add flavor and texture to the pizza.
Layer 3: 1/2 cup diced onions on top of the Nut Crumbs and 12 slices of red bell pepper in a radial pattern
Layer 4: 1/2 cup cheese
I cooked according to the pizza crust directions and awareness of my oven temperature. I preheated the oven to 410 as I was preparing the pizza and cooked for 15 minutes.
