Gluten-free Mexican pizza
Ultimate comfort food: pizza on the weekend. That makes me very happy every now and then! Today I have a recipe for an easy gluten-free Mexican pizza for you. A pizza with tomato sauce, seasoned minced meat, bell pepper, lactose-free crème fraîche and more. What you normally put in a taco, but now on a pizza. And I can tell you, that’s really good;)
I really enjoy experimenting with less standard pizza toppings. Sometimes I go easy with a classic pizza margarita with some extra vegetables or a pizza funghi (with canned mushrooms). But I also like to come up with something more special. For example, it is still on my list to make a pizza carbonara or a pizza carpaccio.
This time I went for Mexican, because I love Mexican food and why not pair that with a pizza? The best thing about this pizza is the lactose-free crème fraîche on top with a few thin slices of avocado. That makes the pizza wonderfully fresh and goes very well with the rest of the ingredients.
Gluten-free pizza crust
For this recipe I used the gluten-free pizza crust from Schär. Like a number of other Schär products, this product is certified low FODMAP and therefore safe to use on the low FODMAP diet. If you feel like it, you could even make your own low FODMAP pizza crust.
Can’t get enough of pizza?
