Rice Crust Pizza #3 (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
3 cups cooked rice
2 eggs, beaten
3 cups Mozzarella cheese, grated
½ teaspoon oregano
1 garlic clove, minced
½ cup onion, minced
¼ teaspoon thyme and/or marjoram
15 ½ ounce can tomato sauce
Mix rice, eggs, and 1 cup cheese together. Spread thinly with raised outer edge into greased jellyroll pan. Bake at 450 F 15-20 minutes or until lightly brown.
Simmer tomato sauce and herbs together for 15 minutes (for oregano and thyme/marjoram, I have used 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning instead.). Spread over rice crust. Sprinkle with the rest of cheese and bake at 450 F until cheese is bubbly.
Possible additions before cheese: Ripe olives, green olives, green peppers, onion, pepperoni, precooked drained sausage, ham, Canadian bacon, precooked drained hamburger. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top of mozzarella cheese or combine mozzarella cheese with cheddar cheese if you wish.
