Gluten-free, lactose-free pizza 🙂

This is something Lisa came up with.  First, we made them gluten-free because both of us are gluten intolerant.  I know it sounds crazy to some people, but we have both experimented with it.  We both took a couple weeks off of eating wheat products, then we tried eating them again.  After eating them again, we felt terrible within thirty minutes.  We’re not 100% sure of the gluten being the causal factor, but it seems to be a plausible conclusion.  We’ve tried it a couple other times with the same results.  Because of that, we avoid it.

Why lactose-free?  Because Tyler inherited some lousy levels of lactase (the enzyme that digests lactose) from his dad.

On the bright side, despite our funky food intolerances, we made some great pizza.  Lisa was the mastermind behind it.  🙂

Ok.  Here’s what you need for each pizza.

1.  1 gluten-free tortilla
2.  2 tbsp tomato paste
3.  1 cup chopped spinach
4.  1/3 cup chopped basil
5.  1/3 cup shredded cheese

Now, what you do.

1.  Grab all your stuff and take a picture of it (the picture is optional).

Some of the ingredients prior to cooking

2.  Put on the tomato paste.

3.  Chop up the spinach and basil.

4.  Put the spinach and basil on top of the tomato pasted tortilla.

5.  Put your cheese on top of all of that.  It should look like this:

The pizza is now ready to go in ze oven.

6.  Bake it at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.  It should come out like this:

El fin! Let it cool for a minute or two, then eat it with a smile.

 7.  Consume.

The pizza in the background with chicken on it is Tyler’s.  He likes meat a lot.  Lisa elected to go for double-cheese rather than meat.  Anyway, it tasted great, and it didn’t take long to make.  Woot and yay!
