Top 8 Allergy Free Pizza Recipes by The Allergy Chef
Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Chicken & Potato Pizza
It’s Friday! I don’t know about you, but I always have this “happy let’s party” vibe on Friday mornings. I usually end up making pizza to celebrate. The kids have come to love Friday lunches, and for good reason. Have you seen the other mashed potato creations this week? There were Mashed Potatoes Done Two Ways, and Potato Soup. Well, with the soup leftovers, we made pizza. Kid Two asked me while we worked on the soup if it would be a good idea to ass mashed potatoes to a pizza. Then he said, never-mind, too many carbs. I thought about, and said that because our soup was a little on the pasty side, rather than runny, we could try to use it as a sauce. When ever the kids come up with an idea like this, I try to encourage them by finding a way to make it work. I think it’s something all Food Allergy Parents should try to do, assuming they don’t already. Allergy Kids are just that – kids. They have to live a long lengthy lifetime, so it’s good to train them young to think outside the box. If we can give them a joy for cooking, baking, and all things kitchen related, it will allow them a greater sense of independence when they’re older, and will also help make sure they don’t go hungry. Or get caught in the dreaded trap of being bored from eating the same few meals again and again.

A little note: a lot of our recipes are cane/refined sugar free. The Wholly Wholesome Pizza Dough has a small amount of cane sugar. If you’re GF, DF, EF and need a pizza dough without cane sugar, you can get the Sunny Day Foods Rice/Potato dough, or opt to make your own. Read More
Pineapple Chicken Pizza
Did you know we’re working on a pizza book? With that in mind, the poor kids have to eat homemade pizza creations on a regular basis. I know right? This is one that I thought may not be as great as I had dreamed up, but then they told me it was really good. I’ll probably make some more tweaks to it before I deem it book ready. You should give this a go if you’d like to have something different.

Rolled Pizza Dough Sandwich
I saw one of the coolest things on the internet: Pizza Pinwheels! I knew I had to try it out. Yeah… about that. I’m going to call this a semi-fail. First, we forgot the cheese. We were so caught up in the rolling of the dough and wanting to get it right, we simply forgot. However, in doing so, we ended up accidentally making something really cool. It resembled a cross between a hoagie and a sub sandwich. I don’t know what to call it anymore, except Kid Two says to call it delicious. What it lacks in looks, it makes up for in effort and flavor. Hope this inspires you to create something great! Read More
Just Sharing Some Pizza
Just sharing some recent things the kids and I have made in the kitchen. Nothing was measured, but I’ve put in some notes in hopes to spark the creativity within you 🙂 I’ve included both the allergy free and allergy versions of what was made.
We are not in the least bit pizza experts, however, we are getting there. I’ll be investing a few good tools and pans in the future which I’m sure will up our game. I’ll also be experimenting with homemade dough… one day… More than anything, we’ve been learning all about flavor profiles, and what works on a pizza. Most of our experiments have been successful, and it has inspired me to write an allergy friendly pizza cookbook 🙂
Calzones! Gluten Free, Top 8 Free Recipe
Kid Three was so intrigued, and really wanted to know what a calzone was. Like with many other things, I told him to look it up. Yes, I’m one of those parents. He was SO happy to help with dinner once he knew what it was. The best part for me was when each of his siblings asked what a calzone was, he was quick to tell them to look it up 🙂 He also likes to say that these are short for “calorie zone”.
Just a fair warning, the final product is not even close to perfect in looks. As you know, I can’t touch, or eat most of the food I create, so the kids did all of the touching for me. This means the kids made these calzones with their own little hands, with lots of love.

Mushroom Pizza Recipe
Like Watermelon Cake, this one had me giggling on the inside all over again. The kids LOVE to make homemade pizza, and when I told them we were having mushroom pizza for dinner, they were excited. The last time I used mushrooms on pizza, I took the fancy road and purchased exotic-to-us mushrooms and made the kids Lobster Mushroom Pizza. There were several other fancy mushrooms on the pizza too.
Back to this meal. So Kid Three was more than happy to help, but he was confused because there was no pizza dough to be found. As I started to prepare the mushrooms, Kid Two says “OH! Mushroom Pizza!” Yes… Mushroom Pizza. I hope you have just as much fun with your family serving these as I did. FYI, we made dairy, and non-dairy versions, which you’ll see in the pictures.

Garlic Parmesan Bites
I saw a little idea online, and knew that Kid Two HAD to try these. Interestingly, Follow Your Heart recently introduced a dairy free parmesan cheese which is way cool. Don’t get me wrong, we still love the Parma! brand that we’ve been using for quite some time and it has worked so well for us. In fact, it’s how I make everyone the chicken bites that are featured in our Everyday Meals cookbook. Kid Two said that these were really great, and the wheat/dairy eaters enjoyed their version as well. Since this is so yummy, lets jump into the recipe. I don’t want to keep you waiting any longer.

For Cane/Refined Sugar Free: Make fresh pizza dough at home, or use a brand that’s safe for you.
Chicken Apple Maple Bacon Pizza Recipe
So I decided to try something TOTALLY different tonight, and the results were very interesting. I’ve included reviews from the kids at the end of the post for your enjoyment. I will share this upfront: we all agreed that the sauce is going to need some work, however, they all felt that it was still beyond delicious to eat, just more runny than expected. I asked them about serving the mix as a pasta instead, and everyone still wanted it as is, as a pizza.
A little more full disclosure: This is a long read, and a very involved recipe. However, it’s worth every bit of time. 🙂
Chicken Apple Maple Bacon Pizza with Bell Peppers and a Honey Cream Basil Sauce. Gotta love those long fancy titles…

Lamb, Garlic, and Onion Pizza with Homemade Crust
I’ve been experimenting with pizza a lot lately that can be made corn free. This time, I wanted to try to make a pizza crust all on my own. It wasn’t the best on the planet when you compare it to what’s commercially available, however, I felt it was a very solid attempt considering its free from status. Feel free to jazz it up a bit, or even experiment with yeast to add rise. For the crust, I found this basic crust recipe at http://easypizzacrusts.com/nypc.html I did make slight modifications…

Red Lamb Rice Dish
When I made this, it was so good, as the low simmer really gets the flavors to sing. I tried to re-create this after making it a couple of days later, and it was just not the same. I was in a rush that day, and the simmer didn’t happen, and I was bummed. So this is your friend letting you know: You gotta let it simmer! This is a dish that would also work well in a slow cooker.
