Weeknight Gluten-Free Pizza

This recipe comes courtesy of Paolo Mascitti, founder of Cibo Verde. CiboVerde is an LA-based meal delivery system that provides customers with meals that are based on their body calculations and  geared toward helping them reach their goal weights and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

I have made this before for my family but forgot how easy it is to prepare. With school back in session, I am realizing again how sometimes we just need quick and simple dinner ideas. Even if you aren't gluten-free, you can use a flour tortilla, pre-cooked shell or pita bread. Serve this as is or with your favorite protein or veggies and pair it with a salad. Dinner in 10 minutes? Sounds good to me.

Look for more "weeknight cooking strategies" tags on the blog. Remember that anyone can be "the family chef". Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Meat and Veggie Pizza
Gluten-free tortilla

1 oz cooked steak (diced)

1 oz yellow onions

2 oz red and green peppers (julienne cut )

2 oz pizza sauce

3 oz of fresh mozzarella cheese


Place the gluten-free tortilla on a baking sheet/pan, add marinara making sure to spread evenly on crust, followed by cheese, onions, peppers and steak.

Place baking pan with the tortilla pizza in the oven for 5 minutes at 325 degrees (just enough to allow the cheese to melt and the tortilla to crisp.)

The entire process will take no more than 10 minutes and you’re ready to eat! BON APPETIT!
