Fun with Udi’s Pizza Crust

When I was training for my marathon/half marathon this spring, I got into the habit of eating the same thing every Friday night.  This is the night before my long run, so the idea is to get into a routine so that I can see if my body agrees or disagrees with the food that I am fueling with.  It is a delicate balance.

When I found a sale on Udi’s gluten-free pizza crusts, I pick up several packages.  Each package contains 2 crusts, so that would last me a while.  Here are some of the recent creations I have come up with:

Chickpea, spinach, roasted grape tomatoes & provolone

013

Eggplant parmesan pizza

004

Unpictured ideas:

Mexican – refried beans, cheddar, tomatoes, jalapeno, lettuce & avocado on pizza crust

Super Veggie – adding shredded zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, black olive, banana pepper and mozzarella

BBQ chicken – bbq sauce, rotisserie chicken, thinly sliced potato & a sprinkling of cheddar

I pair all of my pizzas with a salad.  I can usually polish off a large salad and an Udi’s size crust. 

This is a wonderful way to get creative with your food – the pizza crust is a blank canvas – create until your heart is content!!  The beauty of the Udi’s crusts is that they can go right from the freezer to the oven and can be ready in under 15 minutes.  It doesn’t get much simpler than that. 

Do you have a favorite pizza that you make at home?  My kids go for marinara (we usually use Three Cheese Prego) and mozzarella and if they are feeling adventurous, pepperoni.

    We can't eat tomatoes, so we do pesto, artichoke hearts, goat cheese and then sometimes spinach or mushroom also. Udi's crusts are okay, but I prefer the crusts from Whole Foods GF bakeshop. I wouldn't have pizza the night before my long run, but I do try to eat roughly the same thing every Friday night for the same reasons! I've even purchased/brought food to a hotel where I was staying so I could eat as close to my usual meal as possible the night before a race. :)

    Kimberly – these look delicious. I have to look for these crusts around me. I love pizza with olives and pepperoni, a white pizza with garlic, mozzarella and a little bit of fresh basil sprinkled on top. Bryan is from NJ and is very picky about his pizzas so we'll have to see how he likes these. Thanks for all the great ideas!

    Recently made two purchases that have allowed me to play around with "faux pizzas." Brown rice tortillas and Trader Joe's red pepper spread. Kids like them with marinara, pepperoni and vegan cheese. I enjoyed one with the red pepper spread and some provolone. Yummy! That said, our "go to" pizza crusts are definitely Udi's. They're the best!
