Gluten Free Chocolate Mug Cake


The picture is terrible, but microwave mug cakes are almost never made and eaten in situations conducive to good photography.  Think about it -you make them in the evening when the sun has gone to bed, and eat them in your pajamas cuddled up in your sheets.

Gluten Free Pizza Crust


Gluten free eating is usually pretty easy. Staples like meat, veggies, and many grains naturally come without that sticky little protein.

But specialty foods are different. Those like brioche, crusty sourdough bread, and fluffy pancakes just aren't easy to recreate.

But pizza crust. That is by far the hardest, and arguably the most important. Bland, doughy, and soggy, all of the ones that I've tried leave a LOT to be desired.

Thankfully, this one manages to avoid those pitfalls. It's still grainy, so a sometimes treat, but one that's usually worth it. With simple ingredients, straighforward instructions, and a plethora of flavors to keep the crust exciting all on its own, this will be a gluten free pizza worth remembering.
