Food sensitivities are the bane of my existence. In my house, there are dairy, gluten, egg, and beef allergies... not to mention a free sensitivity to soy and pineapple. Needless to say, we are exceptionally fun dinner guests, restaurant customers and even better attendees at events such as birthday parties! I’m so proud of what I’ve grown up to be. I am that total turd that shows up with a cooler filled with non-dairy ice cream and gluten free pizza for my kid who may as well live in a hamster ball. As a mompreneur and parent on the go, these allergies create some serious challenges.
Personally, I'm used to living with food allergies, as I've been living with them for my whole life. They went undiagnosed until my mid-20s. (Oh, the digestive stories I could tell you. Email me if you’re interested. Wink! Wink!) In all seriousness, I struggle primarily because I feel bad for my daughter not being able to have the 'treats' that other kids get. And while I know there are amazing cookbooks out there that offer allergy friendly recipes, I don't have the freaking time to pull out 8 different flours, nuts, seeds, starches and such to make gluten free, egg free crust, so I'm on the hunt for some quick and awesome options.
So, today I was beyond determined to do something special for the little chicklet. I tapped into some of my pre-mom-brain imagination to make an exceptionally easy, delicious pizza that took no time flat! Maybe 20 minutes, and that included an activity switch and a tantrum. Pretty impressed with myself right now. Here is how I did it:
Note, you won't find measurements here, you'll find ballparks. Ain't nobody got time for measurements.
We loved it, I hope you do too. When you have food sensitivities like we do and you get a moment to actually eat something that tastes remotely like the pizza you pounded down back in the day before you cared about your digestion, there’s only one thing to say. #Winning. Please feel free to share this with any annoying dinner guests and hamster ball moms in your life, they're sure to be pleased.
