“In my quest for gluten-free, yeast-free pizza, I'm always trying different things to get that pizza taste that I crave but can't have. One day a few months ago I was really craving pizza while I was at the grocery store, so I bought some pizza sauce, turkey pepperoni and mozarella cheese and this is what I came up with. Not quite the same thing as the pizza I remember, but a pretty close second and it's ready in a pinch! Note: I've also made this with Italian turkey sausage or just plain cheese depending on my mood.”
