A Gluten Free Pizza for Choosy Kids!
Its quite difficult to make kids eat especially if they are gluten intolerant. This is a major cause of concern among parents who have gluten intolerant kids at home. The Gluten free regime offers a lot of scope of experimentation but the only thing is that you need to be open for experimentation and have faith in your culinary skills. Kids have a very specific taste. If they don’t like something you can’t make them eat it no matter how tasty you cook it. The trick is to guise the nutrients in something that has the kid’s approval.
Pizza, which is a strict no no in a gluten free regimen but is one of the favorites of kids all across the world could be an option that can be used to introduce the essential nutrients in the kid’s body that the kid has been devoid of till date. Many parents would be surprised even at the thought of pizza being employed to replenish the nutrients in a kid’s body without damaging the digestive system since the kid is suffering from Celiac.
Well, the trick is to use the most nutritious toppings that need to be there for the kids to have a wholesome diet. Although having pizza regularly for dinner is not recommended this will be an awesome occasional option and will see those choosy kids running to the dinner table.
This is quite a simple recipe that can be prepared within the time frame if you are getting late for dinner or the kids are shouting due to hunger pangs.
- You need to preheat the oven to 375 degrees then line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicon baking mat. While the oven heats combine the breadstick mix, 2 tablespoons olive oil, shredded cheese, diced pepperoni, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, eggs and water in a mixing bowl. Stir with a fork to combine – it will not get smooth until you knead it. Dump the contents of the bowl onto a clean work surface and knead until the dough comes together and is smooth. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and roll into logs of about 4 ½ inches long. If the pepperoni sticks out too much, just push them back into the dough. Place the breadsticks on the prepared baking sheet, brush with olive oil and sprinkle the parmesan on top. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with the sauce for dipping.
- It time to prepare the sauce. To have the sauce you need to combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan. Whisk to combine and heat until warm. Let sit while the breadsticks are baking. Serve the sauce warm and on the side for dipping.
- Use different toppings every time you prepare this Gluten free pizza to yield the most awesome results as you can be sure that you are having a balanced diet. I have enjoyed making this recipe and it forms a regular feature when the whole family is in a mood to celebrate and have some fun while eating something healthy.
