Sorry for the delay--I do this slightly different every time.

Preheat oven to 400

Grate 3 medium zucchini and squeeze out excess moisture. Add to this 2 eggs and 2 cups of any shredded cheese you like, (I tend to use mozzarella, but a mix is also good).

When blended, spread evenly into a 13x9 baking dish. (either greased or lined with non stick foil)

Bake for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and carefully top with sauce and anything else you like on pizza.

Return to oven and bake for another 30 minutes or so till browned and bubbly.

Let it sit a few minutes before cutting.

That sounds so good! I must try it, thank you for sharing

I got glutened at the same time as you.... It screwed me up for 3 days, just like you....

I caught my 13 year old daughter wiping her gluteny hands on my dish towel after she ate wheat toast. She admitted that she had done the same thing the day before at breakfast (instead of washing her hands). I used that same towel to dry my coffee cup after breakfast that day. I guess maybe I wiped some gluten into it. Since then, I have implemented my own dish towel that know one is to touch.

I can relate! I cook gluten-free, however my children do have snacks or frozen meals that contain gluten. Every once in awhile I will let my daughter get waffles. I need to convert her to gluten-free ones! They eat gluten-free pasta now. I hate when I get CC at home. They also do wraps and have some breads around at times. I've tried to make part of the kitchen a gluten-free zone, but with teens thats difficult at times. My daughter is better at keeping it safe than my son. She won't kiss me or touch my stuff if she has eaten gluten. They have a gluten table and there are rules using any part of the counter top.

I always use paper towels for everything! I know its not great for the environment, but I have to be super sure not to get glutened. If I get glutened it better be from a bite of pizza! :D I wont eat pizza that has gluten and I sure wont use regular dish towels that my family uses.

I always miss this, and always mean to come and check out all the food people are having!

Bfast - leftovers from the night before: beef and tomato stew with onions, bell pepper, and tomatoes

snack - bell peppers and roasted acorn squash seeds

Lunch - skipped it

snack - popped sorghum with olive oil and salt

Dinner - beef and tomato stew again

Not terribly exciting, but I was happy with it because I didn't have to make anything as it was all leftovers. Makes for a much more stress free day. :-)

    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!  
    • Couldn't have said it better!  
    • If you are going for an endoscopy, then please ask for a celiac antibodies COMPLETE panel.  This will help you determine if you have been diet compliant (zapped by hidden sources of gluten or accidental cross contamination) and if your doctor misses the (possible) damaged areas during the procedure.    That way you can rule out celiac disease and THEN worry about the possibility of other AI issues.   I did this last summer.  I got really sick.  My GI thought SIBO right off the bat.  But I asked just to be tested for celiac disease.  Sure enough, I had elevated antibodies.  No need to test for SIBO or anything else at that point.  I just waited a few months for symptoms to subside.   Good Luck to you!  
    • That's good Megan, that you were tested.  Many people have the genes, but only some develop the disease.  Your doctor is right about celiac often appearing after some kind of physical stress or illness. The tricky thing about eliminating one food is that you body may be reacting to multiple foods.  So not getting better could mean you just eliminated one problem instead of 3. It's not unusual to have digestion issues for quite a while after going gluten-free.  Our guts are damaged and that damage has to heal.  But it can't heal until the immune system stops it's attack.  The immune system attack/reaction can keep going for weeks to months.  So it can be a slow recovery.  Often people report getting better and then getting worse and going back and forth on symptoms. What doesn't help is that our bacteria in our guts can get really screwed up by the disease process.  We can't properly digest things so there is more undigested food for bacteria to thrive on.  Avoiding sugars and carbs can help with that issue. Here are some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months.  Some of these you have already taken care of: Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
      Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
      Don't eat in restaurants
      Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
      Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
      Take probiotics.
      Take gluten-free vitamins.
      Take digestive enzymes.
      Avoid dairy if it causes symptoms.
      Avoid sugars and starchy foods. They can cause bloating.
      Avoid alcohol.
