Do you ever look into your refrigerator and looks like a leftover buffet?  Well, mine does pretty often and Philip will tell you I hate eating leftovers! But, I do LOVE pizza so we came up with the genius idea to create Gluten Free Trashcan Pizza.  This is a great way to git rid of those pesky leftovers and it also a super way to slip in some veggies your kids might not normally eat. PS you can do this with regular pizza crust too:)


Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour, 44-ounce (Pack of 4) Tip: follow the directions on the bag but here’s a tip add a little extra olive oil and some garlic/herb seasoning too and I also find the crust it best when made to be very thin.

Muir Glen Organic Pasta Sauce-Italian Herb-25.5 oz If I have time to make myself here’s one of my favorite recipes here

1/4 lb Boars Head Mozzarella Cheese Sliced Thin

Leftovers( this pizza was topped with zucchini, onions, mushrooms, rib meat, garden tomatoes, fresh basil & shredded carrots)

1 tablespoon Italian parsley (garnish)

1 tablespoon Italian herbs

1 teaspoon of salt

1 tablespoon of olive oil


Tip: follow the directions on the pizza dough bag but here’s a tip add a little extra olive oil and some garlic/herb seasoning too and I also find the crust it best when made to be very thin.

sautee your vegetables to desired consistency add herbs and salt

if you’re adding a protein add it to the veggies once they are close to being done and heat for a few minutes( you do not want to dry it out)

Once the pizza is ready to top add as much sauce as you like; we are a thin sauce family (Philip likes it saucy so I always keep a little extra on the side, for him). Then place your vegetables & protein, add mozzarella cheese and finally sprinkle your Italian parsley on top. Bake for 18-20 minutes we like a crispy crust.

Once your pie is out of the oven drizzle the tablespoon of olive oil on top.

  1. Never though of putting Zucchini on pizza, but that sounds pretty good actually! We have leftover filled fridge at the end of each week, so will definitely have to make some pizza next time (I’m sure the kids will love that idea!)

    1. Me too! I like making it home because I can control the calorie intake with the ingredients I put on.
