I am Ready for Some Football

Beer and pizza. Pizza and beer. Impossible to achieve gluten-free, you say?

Nay! This recipe resulted in a deliciously normal crust. Crispy center, thick chewy edges, and a rich wheat bread flavor. Substituting powdered soymilk for dry milk and agar flakes for the gelatin didn't affect my results. Best of all? This crust is packed with protein-rich chickpea flour.

I thawed some of the pesto I froze last August and brought it back to life in the blender with olive oil and fresh spinach. Then I added my favorite toppings, kalamatas and broccoli, and enjoyed the best pizza I've eaten in years.

Pesto pizza, a perfectly adequate pint of Redbridge, and five Jets turnovers: Sunday afternoons don't get much better than that.


  1. Beautiful!!! I love pesto on pizza.

  2. I love the beautiful purples and greens in this photo! Your pizza looks absolutely enticing.

  3. Yum! It does look and sound like the best pizza!
    I love pizza with no cheese. I love all the toppings, Mmmmm!

    P.S. Yes, my husband loved the baked acorn but he said the sweet taste made him feel like eating a dessert not a dinner. Nathan wasn't home so he didn't get to try it but when he looked at the photo, he said " No, thanks".

  4. WOW! That looks like an absolutely perfect slice of pizza. I can't wait to try making gluten free crust, I love chickpea flour. And pesto on pizza is AMAZING!

  5. Yeah football! The Thursday games are kinda lame, but my bf is a Raiders fan (why????), so he's happy (although said it will probably be really embarassing to watch them lose to the Cowboys!!). Glad to see another female football fan!

  6. What a picture-perfect pesto pizza! And go, Patriots!
    (I seem to have a P thing going on with this comment!) :-)

  7. Broccoli, pesto, and olive pizza sounds amazing!

  8. Hi Mary, it's me again! I checked the website of Marmite, it can be used as a spread over toast/bagel which I don't like it because it's too salty eventhough I spread it thinly. I love it in my soup, it gives nice brown color and makes the soup tasty. The weather at night here only about 59-61 degree. I don't think I can live in Maine, it's too cold for me!

  9. Beautiful!!! I wish I had a piece of that right now! Yum.
