Last week, I wrote a review about the cookbook “Cooking For Your Gluten Free Teen.” I loved the cookbook, and I got permission to share one of the recipes that I made, gluten free pizza. I have to say that I really liked it, and so did my kids. The crust was thin and crispy and I really couldn’t tell that it was gluten free. I don’t have a mixer or anything, (I don’t even have a hand mixer right now) so I just mixed it by hand and it turned out fine. If you’d like a more detailed version of this recipe, you can like the Berghoff’s Catering and Restaurant Group’s official facebook page. You’ll receive this recipe and another one for delicious gluten-free cake. Also, if you’d like to purchase a copy of this book, you can do so here.
