Recipes: Gluten Free Taco Pizza

jls140

The Taco Pizza. The most amazing creation ever, as far as I’m concerned. This recipe takes my favorite food ever, pizza, and my favorite type of food, mexican, and melds it into one delicious feast for the eyes and the tummy! Oh and it’s gluten free. Holler! Makes for one happy stomach!  I loosely use this pizza recipe for the base. And full disclosure, I do not make my own crust. I tried a few times. I failed each and every time. I’d rather leave it to the experts for now because Against the Grain makes one kick ass crust. It’s not chewy or doughy. You honestly cannot tell it’s gluten free. My pizza loving husband can’t tell it’s gluten free. Anyone we serve it to – yeah, not a clue. So, I stock up at Wegmans and keep them handy.
