Ok. We were so crazy inspired by the sun we may have just skipped past Spring entirely and went straight to Summer for inspiration. Basically the sun had us thinking of BBQ season which had us thinking of grilled pineapples which had us thinking of cold drinks on the patio and then all of sudden we just went for it and boom. Pizza. Pineapple. Beer.
Naturally we needed to make a pizza recipe this week, no matter the inspiration. We just pitched for BC Food Processors Product of the Year Award with The Gluten Free Chef Vegan Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts!! How can we not brag about our pizza’s the week after!
So we whipped up this vegetarian pizza with pineapple, smoked tofu, mint and mozzerella that we are sure you will enjoy. And if you are interested, and we were since a little bit of celebrating was in order, we paired our delightful summer pizza with some gluten-free beer. Ground Breaker is a 100% Gluten-Free Brewery & Gastropub out of Portland, Oregon. We went with the Pale Ale which is nice and light and easy on the hops, available in select liquor stores around the Mainland. Of course, now we have to go to Portland too. Our to do list is never ending. SO MUCH INSPIRATION!
Pineapple & Smoked Tofu Gluten-Free Pizza, serves 2-3
1 The Gluten Free Chef Pizza Crust
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella
1/2 cup sliced pineapple
1/2 cup sliced smoke tofu, we used Soyganic Smoked Tofu Garlic Pepper Flavour
2 tablespoons olive oil
Mint leaves for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle olive oil on frozen crust and use a brush to spread it out. Top with cheese, pineapple and tofu. Bake for 15 minutes. Garnish with mint leaves. Serve and enjoy!
If you are vegan: be sure to select The Gluten Free Chef Vegan Gluten-Free Pizza Crust and top it with a vegan cheese like Daiya. These crusts have a red label.
If you are vegetarian: you can use The Gluten Free Chef Gluten-Free Pizza Crust or The Gluten Free Chef Vegan Gluten Free Pizza Crusts and top with your preferred cheese. The vegan crusts do contain nuts but are dairy-free. The plain gluten-free crusts have a green label.
What’s the difference between the crusts? Our vegan crusts do not contain dairy or eggs. Our regular gluten-free crusts do. Our vegan crusts have replaced the dairy and eggs with almond and flax. Unfortunately we do not have a dairy-free and nut-free option but for the most part we do have most allergens covered. Both crusts cook up the same and the taste is still light and doughy, just like pizza so no matter what you are avoiding, you are sure to enjoy a delicious and convenient gluten-free crust with The Gluten Free Chef.
