I'm a glass-half-full type of girl. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, grave's disease and celiac disease in 2010 and life-altering allergies in 2013. I believe having a positive attitude is the only way to live with dis-ease. I also believe that life doesn't have to be PERFECT for it to be WONDERFUL. Dis-ease is expensive, so I live a frugal yet healthy lifestyle. This is just my blog; my day-to-day story.

Gluten Free Barbecue Pizza

The other day I craved something carby for dinner. I eat low carb most of the time and every so often I just get that hankering for a little blood sugar rise :)

I found a recipe in All You magazine for bbq pizza. I made a few changes to make it gluten free. You can make more changes if you want it to be dairy-free, too.

This recipe is VERY easy and took less than 10 minutes.

1 frozen Udi's gluten free pizza crust

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

3/4 cup mozzarella or Daiya dairy free cheese(shredded)

1 cup chopped/diced chicken breast (rotisserie chicken would work, too. Use whatever you have on hand).

5 Tbsp. bbq sauce

a little chopped onion

On the crust: Brush olive oil over the surface of the crust. Sprinkle 1/2 the cheese on crust, leaving a 1/2 inch border. Toss chicken with 1 tbsp. bbq sauce. Spoon remaining bbq sauce in a spiral over the cheese on the crust. Scatter chicken, remaining cheese and onions on the pizza.

Bake pizza according to crust directions, which for Udi's crust is only 7 minutes (I use the toaster oven, too, to save energy). Let pizza rest for a minute or two before cutting.



  1. Nikki, I'm so trying this out. And gluten free is a huge plus! Thanks... hope everything is great and finally warming up a bit.

  2. That is some good stuff, and so simple. A friend told me to do the same thing but use ranch dressing for the sauce on the bread and put some Louisiana hot sauce on the chicken to make a hot wing pizza
