Every Monday night is homemade pizza night. We’ve been doing this for the past year since it is an easy meatless meal. 🙂 I made my dough for a while, but then we went gluten free for a month. We were testing to see if gluten was causing any behavioral and digestion issues with E, but it made no difference. But while we were on the gluten free kick, I discovered the best pre-made pizza crust from Udi’s. So now we go back and forth depending on how busy I am throughout my day.
A few weeks ago ManPans released their new pizza line and sent me a Perforated Pizza Pan to review. My family is in love! We love crispy crust that’s not too greasy. With traditional pans, you have to spray with oil and sometimes it can ruin the pizza. With the ManPans perforated pizza pan you don’t need to use any cooking spray and the crust turns out perfectly crisp every time!
Since we’ve had the 16″ ManPans pizza pan, we’ve tried homemade crust and Udi’s and both have been the best pizza’s we’ve had yet. I also have used the pizza pan to reheat zucchini bread which gave it the crispness I was looking for. Here are some pictures of some of the yumminess we’ve cooked:
We all like different toppings, so usually it’s a mixed pizza. 🙂 We also participate in meatless Monday, so we do fruits and veggies on the pizza- unless we have leftover chicken in the fridge. I use cheeses like fetta, ricotta, mozzarella, parm, romano, cheddar, and some mixed varieties. I also make our own sauce which is organic tomato paste, organic tomato sauce, organic italian seasoning, and organic garlic. I’m allergic to onions so we can’t use store bought stuff.
