Pine Nut Pizza

Pine nuts are something I always try to have in the house. Why? I love them and they add so much to a dish. Add it to a pasta dish for a wonderful flavor change. I also add it to pizza and veggies. Roast them a little in a pan before sprinkling on top of most dishes and it looks and tastes so much better.

Just the other day, Daughter and I split a gluten-free pizza crust from Gluten Free Creations. What to put on mine? Aha, just a little parmesan, fresh parsley, sprinkle of mozzarella and a few pine nuts. Okay, a lot of pine nuts, I do love them so. You could probably use half as much and be happy with that.

I pre-bake GF Creations pizza crusts for about 10 minutes so that the baking time is cut in half. After cheese and toppings are added, it only needs another 10-15 minutes for a crispy, yummy pizza.

It's a quick and yummy snack, and with the addition of the pine nuts, I feel as if I've made something gourmet and special. And hey, I deserve that and so do you, dear chef.

Hi Valerie! Just saw your comment over on my page and wanted to come over and see what you were up to. I think you may also be on the GF/veg yahoo group now that I think about it...

This pizza looks yummy. Although my husband would call it froo-froo and not eat it. That is why we now each make our own pizzas, so that I can put whatever I want on mine! I will have to try this some time soon.

Thanks for visiting!

Great, nice to see another veg/gf group member. Hope we can learn from each other, I'm always looking for something new! Froo-froo pizza, that's too funny. But my husband doesn't eat it either, so I'm not laughing that hard!
