Between the grease, tomato sauce, wheat and dairy, pizza is one of those foods that individuals with reflux should try to avoid whenever possible. However, it can be hard when everyone around you is enjoying one of America’s favorite foods. My husband makes this “pizza” as a substitute and my son he loves it. We have tried the frozen pre-made crusts made of rice flour, but this recipe seems to consistently work well.
1 Box Chebe (Brand) Focaccia Mix
2 Tbs canola or olive oil
2 cups rice cheese (separated into 1 cup each)
3/4 cup rice milk
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Pour the focaccia mix into a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs, oil, rice milk and one cup of the rice cheese and mix with a fork until combined (a little muscle is required here). Dump the mixture onto the baking sheet. Cover it with clear plastic wrap and then press down to flatten it out into about 8 inches in diameter. Remove the plastic wrap and top with one cup of the cheese and any other fixings tolerated (my husband without reflux likes anchovies and my son likes mild turkey sausage). Bake on center rack for 25 or 30 minutes.
