Thai Pan Pizza

When I started eating gluten free in 2008, there were not many options for gluten free food that were tolerable.  Since then, I have discovered many delicious products that accommodate a gluten free diet, and that includes pizza.  Admittedly, gluten free pizza is not as fluffy as traditional pizza, but we no longer have to avoid this favorite comfort food and there are infinite options for creating amazing flavors.  For the Thai flavors,  we start with a tangy peanut butter sauce, top with a sweet pineapple tofu cream, add shredded broccoli, carrots, bean sprouts, roasted garlic and sliced pineapple.  Finally, a drizzle of cashew cilantro dressing, and it is on. Thai Pan Pizza, gluten free, vegan, dairy free with no sacrifices. More
