Sun Dried Tomato/Pistachio Pizza? Yea, you heard it right!

Ok, this may sound crazy, but in order to judge you must try it first. Pizzeria Bianco, a wonderful pizza place here in Phoenix, makes a red onion/pistachio pizza to die for. Well, now that I'm GF, that's no longer an option for me. Tonight I decided to modify it to what I had and it worked out amazingly well.

Using a pizza crust from GF Creations, I simply added garlic, sun dried tomatoes, chopped pistachios and a little mozzarella. Bingo-gourmet yummy pizza. (I put a little basil and parsley on top for color and flavor also.)

Try this and you won't believe it. It's light, tasty, and goes well with a great white wine. It's also elegant and makes a great appetizer if cut into small pieces. Go ahead and use your own GF pizza crust if you don't have these pre-made crusts. I'm just lucky to live near a great GF bakery that makes it easy for me to have pizza when I want it-my way.

If you're using GF Creations pizza crust, pre-cook the crust a little if you have the 9" crust. They tend to be a little more thick and don't hold up well with lots of toppings. This is what the crust looks like before heating with just a little olive oil.

Don't be afraid to try something new on your pizza. Salad on a pizza? Yes, I've done that already. Pistachios on pizza? Absolutely. And one of my favorites-broccoli-give it a try, Dear Chef, what have you got to lose? And you may come up with your own signature pizza!

I've had "split pea pizza" and "black and white pizza" that had hummus and a black bean dip as toppings. Both were yummy!

Split pea? That's different. The Black and White sounds yummy, and I'd even give the split pea a try.
