Quick & Easy Low-FODMAP Pizza

Low-FODMAP Pizza (Quick & Easy!)  /  Delicious as it Looks

Pizza is one of my favorite foods and it's a necessity in my life. I do have a wonderful pizza crust in my cookbook. It's a yeast recipe (also egg-free) that takes a little more effort and time to make, so I wanted to share a really quick and easy way to make a low-FODMAP pizza crust.

If you are familiar with commercially available gluten-free baking mixes, you've probably heard of Chebe. Chebe makes a range of bread mixes that are made of modified tapioca starch. They make a delicious pizza crust mix, but unfortunately, it contains garlic and onion. I decided to try their plain all-purpose bread mix, but follow the directions for their pizza crust. It worked!

I deviate a little from their directions and found a method that works perfectly for me. I don't add the shredded cheese they recommend adding. Since I already put cheese on top of the pizza, I reduce the fat and calories by omitting the cheese in the crust.

First, whisk the eggs, oil and water or milk (I usually just use water) together with a fork in a medium bowl.

Add the bread mix and stir it in as much as you can with the fork.

Use your hands to form a dough and knead several times until it's smooth.

Pat the dough in the bottom of the pizza pan (pardon my fingers!).

Pop the crust in the oven and bake for 9 minutes. While the crust is baking, mix up the yummy sauce.

Quick & Easy Pizza
Low-FODMAP, Gluten-Free
serves 4

Ingredients

Crust
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup water or lactose-free milk
1 Box Chebe All-Purpose Bread Mix

Sauce
3/4 cup 100% tomato sauce or tomato puree (such as Pomi)
1/2 teaspoon Nicer Foods Garlic-Infused Oil*
1/2 teaspoon Nicer Foods Shallot-Infused Oil*
2 teaspoons Italian Herb Seasoning (such as Frontier or the recipe from my cookbook)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Topping Ideas
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Sliced olives
Bell peppers
Browned ground beef
Tuna (Hey, don't knock it 'til you try it!)
Canadian Bacon and Pineapple

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly grease a 12-inch pizza pan (greasing not needed if using non-stick pan).
  2. Whisk the eggs, oil, and water or milk together in a large bowl with a fork. Stir in the Chebe mix as much as you can with the fork, then use your hands to form the mixture into a dough. Knead the dough several times until smooth. Transfer to the pizza pan and pat the dough in the bottom of the pan.
  3. Bake crust for 9 minutes. While crust is baking, make the sauce: combine the tomato sauce, garlic oil, shallot oil, Italian herbs, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  4. Spread the sauce evenly over the par-baked crust and sprinkle with toppings. Bake 10 more minutes, or until the cheese is melted and just starting to brown. Slice and serve.
* Homemade Garlic and/or Onion Oil may be used. Since I find homemade to be not as potent and flavorful as the oils made by Nicer Foods, I recommend increasing the amount of oil to 1 tablespoon.
