After giving up dairy a year ago to address my hormonal issues, I was devastated at the thought that I could no longer enjoy gluten free pizza with real cheese. It had undeniably been one of my favorite cheat foods.

After several months of mourning the loss, I eventually got used to living dairy-free. Although its a bit harder to find pizza options that work for me when I’m eating out, I am so happy that I get to make my own personal pizzas and flatbreads at home, without any concern about dairy or any other ingredient I may not be a huge fan of.

Cappello’s is one of my all-time favorite brands of gluten-free pasta, pizza and cookie dough, not just because they’re gluten-free but because they use paleo friendly ingredients as well.

I used Cappello’s Naked Crust in this recipe, but any gluten free crust, store bought or homemade will do. You may just need to adjust the cooking time and temperature a bit according to the instructions for the brand you bought.
