DIY Gluten-Free Pizza Night

Like most families, we have a fun meal once a week. For my kids, it’s nearly always pizza because it’s as much fun to eat as it is to create! Of course, any meal that I can turn into a fun evening with the kids, I’m always in, and this is one meal everyone eats without complaints.

Since switching my son’s diet to gluten-free a few years ago, I’ve had to be on the quest to find gluten-free substitutes that he’ll enjoy eating and not feel like he’s missing out. In the case of pizza, we recently discovered Freschetta’s Gluten-Free Pizzas, and I’m happy this is one gluten-free pizza the entire family loves to eat!

The thinner, crispy crust is one that’s irresistible and most nights, we make it a game to pile on the toppings and customize them. Since the baking temperatures are different for regular and gluten-free crusts, it’s much easier for me to purchase Freshetta’s Gluten-Free pizzas and make one kind for everyone.

The fun begins just before baking, where each of my kids selects the toppings they want to customize their pizzas with! When we start with the gluten-free cheese, piling on the toppings is quite easy. And, because it’s a Friday night, this is a great way for me to add veggies that need to be eaten from the week!

My youngest, the meat lover, likes to add black olives to his pizza, and since my daughter is also a big fan of the black olive and pepperoni combination, they work together to customize their pizzas. For these two, I buy the gluten-free pepperoni and start there. It’s always about who gets more sliced olives on “their half of the pizza” Ha!

Because Freschetta’s Gluten-Free pizzas are available nationwide, enjoying pizza night is quite easy no matter where you live. We were able to enjoy a family pizza night on a recent vacation trip to the beach, and it made for a really fun pizza and movie night in our condo when the kids were tired from a few days in the sun and just wanted to relax and watch a movie.

While it’s only my son and I that eat gluten-free at our house, it’s nice to have found one great-tasting gluten-free pizza everyone else enjoys eating.

Tell me, do you customize your pizzas at home? What are your favorite toppings?

    Every now and then if time permits on a day off work i make crust and all, but most time it’s frozen pizza for pizza night. I usually add to a cheese or pepperoni pizza. Onion, spinach, basil, black olives, bacon, banana peppers-just depends what is in the fridge! Never had the GF frozen pizza have always made my own GF crust when going that route. Would love to try it!! I try to eat GF as much as possible, but it’s been hard to make a total switch.

    My Celiac daughter loves to slice fresh tomatoes to put on top–all different colors from our garden. My son wants more colors of cheese. My husband and I like to add fresh herbs, spinach or broccolini, and some sliced Applegate pepperoni.

    We love pizza night! Customizing pizzas makes it more fun and an event the family can enjoy together in the kitchen while talking about the day and the weekend to come! We add extra pepperoni, mushrooms, and pepper slices. When we want to add some spice we add hot pepper and a few black olives! Yum!
