Adding Flare to Your Weeknight Gluten Free Pizza

November 30, 2016

Pizza. There’s no denying it’s a favorite on most family’s top ten easy weeknight meal lists…except for those who have a family member with a gluten-intolerance. It can be hard to both juggle the special dietary needs of those you love and serve something your entire family will enjoy.

Our friends at Freschetta® pizza have you covered with their Gluten Free Pizza, offered in both cheese and pepperoni varieties featuring their undeniably crispy, tasty crust that just happens to be gluten free. This pizza is certified by the Celiac Support Association so you know it’s safe for even the most gluten-adverse eaters.

Recently, Freschetta® teamed up with food and lifestyle bloggers around the country to come up with new recipe ideas to add a little flare to the typical weeknight meal. We’d love to share three of our favorites!
