better-than-ever hawaiian pizza

7 Dec

gluten-free hawaiian pizzaKinnikinnik pizza crusts have been a staple in my family for the last few years. They are a great texture and slightly sweet with cornmeal on the bottom. You can also substitute them for other things, like parmesan wedges alongside soups or for dipping in hummus.

Start with a Kinnikinnik crust and top with your favourite sauce. I use a small can of the Primo traditional pizza sauce but thicken it with about 4 or 5 tablespoons of tomato paste to make it extra tangy. Sprinkle a small amount of mozzarella, then your toppings (thinly sliced black forest ham and pineapple), followed by more mozzarella. Bake at 375 for 10 – 15 minutes.

Matt claims that this was the best pizza we have made yet, and I think that has to do with the extra tangy sauce as well as the final touch: pizza drizzle. I bought a condo this year with the help of my fantastic realtor, Sharon. After I moved in, she arrived with a wonderful welcome basket full of gluten-free goodness: cookies, coffee and pizza ingredients! The pizza drizzle is a tall bottle of oil infused with garlic, chili, basil and paprika. It adds a subtle, slightly spicy edge against the sweet pineapple.

    I’m taking over your blog šŸ™‚

    Have you tried Avatara pizza in the city? They have gluten free wood fire pizza and it is pretty darn good… at least for when you don’t feel like making your own. The Buddha is really good!
