Pizza has always been one of my favorite foods. I remember I ate a ton of pizza growing up. And really, what kid doesn’t like the classic cheese and pepperoni pizza? However, my current dietary restrictions don’t allow for a lot of the popular food’s staple ingredients—cheese, wheat and yeast definitely are off-limits. I found out this great recipe here: http://www.foods4betterhealth.com/yeast-free-crust-for-pizza-lovers-11804
