These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!
Deep Dish Pizza: A Grain-free Friday Night Special
This evening I was in the mood for pizza when I got home. I decided to make my Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza. I like to cook this in my 10-1/2 inch Lodge cast iron skillet. Hubby and I prefer different ingredients on our pizza. Rather than make 2 separate pizzas like I frequently do, I decided to make one pizza and just make "half his / half mine." I put sauce, mozzarella cheese and Boars Head pepperoni on the entire pizza and then put kalamata olives on his half and red and yellow bell peppers and thinly sliced onions on mine. It turned out great and was the perfect meal to perk up this dark and dreary Friday night. There are thunderstorms here this evening and more rain in this weekend's forecast. I snapped a few photos of the pizza for you to see below. The link to the pizza recipe is here: Deep Dish Pizza. Enjoy!
