Pizza is one of the magic words in my house. That word sends my boys running into the kitchen.

And pizza that we can make at home is one of my kids’ favorites.

Especially this gluten free one I made for my Jesse bear. This isn’t your traditional pizza crust, as it has more of a flaky biscuit like texture than fluffy bread. So if you like a soft flaky pizza crust that is gluten free, then this pizza is for you.

My kids love the deli meat toppings of ham, pepperoni, and cheddar jack cheese. And the sauciness is just an added bonus.
