Freeze-dried pizza. Seriously, no joke.
Where's my fellow foodies?!
Recently I was craving really good pizza that had a killer tomato sauce and a nice crispy crust. I was out dog training for the entire day and a quick Google search returned zero pizza options. Zero. Nilch. I remember thinking "Are you serious?! How hard is it to find good pizza!!"
But actually, I've found finding good, let alone great, pizza that isn't drowning in grease to be a real struggle. And that's when it hit me. Could pizza be freeze-dried? What if I made a pizza that could be kept in the pantry and taken on the go when I know I'm out for the entire day?
I took the thought one step further.
What if I made a healthy pizza with no processed flour, that is gluten-free and, dare I say it, delicious.
This pizza crams in over 4 servings of vegetables to make you feel full and satisfied. The crust, made mostly of cauliflower, has a nice crunch; when freeze-dried, the pizza becomes more like a pizza flavored toast.
