Lynda: Going grain and gluten free does not mean that you need to avoid pizza. Well not in my world. This delicious recipe is guilt free, packed full of nutrients and is without grain or gluten so easy on your digestive system. Once you get the hang of making the base it is quite simple to put together and makes the kitchen smell amazing. Give it a try. Please note that you may need a knife and fork as the base is not as firm as gluten based pizzas.
