Friday Night Pizza

Friday night is approaching. The best night of the weekend — it’s the kickoff, the night that starts it all. There’s nothing like spending it with my sisters; good food, wine, and great conversation and laughter (the kind that makes your belly ache). That’s a recipe for a relaxing, enjoying-the-moment kind of night.

Now let’s add pizza to the mix! It goes well with wine and is part of the entertainment as pizza topping ideas are conjured up. I was a little worried about keeping with my new gluten-free and dairy-free diet, but my sisters saw it as a cooking challenge which resulted in a couple, pretty darn-good pies! With Whole Food’s store-bought, gluten-free crust and Daiya vegan cheese, taste wasn’t sacrificed for dietary modifications.

The Name of the Game

The way we decide on how to make a pizza is by taking turns calling out ingredients. This makes for some interesting pies! And that’s how this new Egg, Kale, Corn Pizza was born.


Gluten-free crust (found at Whole Foods)
Daiya cheese (on desired dairy-free section) 
Parmigiano Reggiano
Fresh sage
White corn off the cob

Pizza Topper:

Baby kale mix
Sliced avocado
Crushed red pepper
Olive Oil
Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450°-475º and top crust with all the ingredients, except the “Pizza Topper.” Bake for 10-12 minutes or until egg whites are cooked, but yolks are still juicy. Then toss the kale salad with olive oil, salt and pepper. After cutting pieces, add the salad, and finish with sliced avocado and crushed red pepper.

We also made a margarita pizza and enjoyed a bottle of Educated Guess‘s pinot noir, which was absolutely divine!


Gluten-free crust
Daiya cheese (on desired dairy-free section) 
Buffalo mozzarella
Tomato sauce
Sliced grape tomatoes
Chopped basil

Preheat oven to 450°-475º and top the crust with all ingredients, except the basil. Bake for 10-12 minutes and then add the basil on top. Bake for one minute. Remove, cut, and enjoy!

Tip: The rocker blade, pizza cutters work great — keeps all the gooey toppings intact!

Buon Appetito, happy Friday and pizza night!
