Food as MedicineSM Tip

The fat in the goat cheese helps your body absorb more of the carotenoids in the pizza sauce.

Culinary Taste Tip

Crushing the oregano, rosemary and red pepper flakes releases the flavor and aromatic oils, making it more noticeable on the pizza.

Culinary Technique Tip

You can make this balsamic glaze yourself by simmering some balsamic vinegar for fifteen minutes or so until it starts to thicken, or you can buy it already bottled.

Ingredients

1 9-inch (12 oz.) frozen gluten free pizza crust*
1/3 cup organic pizza sauce
½ cup well drained bottled roasted yellow or red bell pepper strips
2 large plum tomatoes, thinly sliced (1 cup)
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
¾ cup (3 oz.) crumbled goat cheese
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar glaze
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
¼ to ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, as desired


Preparation

Heat oven to 350°F. Place frozen pizza crust on a cookie or baking sheet. Spread pizza sauce evenly over crust; top with roasted peppers and sliced tomatoes. Spoon balsamic vinegar lightly over the tomatoes; top pizza with goat cheese. Bake 20 minutes or until hot. Immediately drizzle balsamic glaze over pizza. Use your fingers to crush the oregano, rosemary and pepper flakes and sprinkle over the pizza. Cut into 8 wedges.

Substitutions

One large ripe tomato may replace the plum tomatoes.

This was absolutely delicious! I've tried this recipe with a whole wheat boboli but prefer the gluten-free pizza dough. It's a family favorite now.

I'm in tears! Tears of joy! I'm on a gluten free, sugar free nutrition plan and miss pizza so much. This pizza has everything that I can have and ingredients that will boost my immunity too! Yeah! Pizza tomorrow for dinner!
