Pesto & Goat Cheese Flat Bread Pizza ~ THM ~ S ~ Gluten Free

I love pizza as much as the next person. I really love artisan pizza. Being Dairy Light and Gluten Free can make having a pizza a bit more difficult. Goat cheese can be an option for many with Bovine Dairy Allergies or Lactose Intolerance.

This pizza utilizes the Rosemary Garlic Easy Mix Flat Bread. You can also use the Easy Mix 2 for the flat bread. The beauty of this S bread is that it is a perfect savory option for the THMama and the THAllergen Mama alike.

Cover the baked flat bread with your favorite pesto.
Add your toppings of choice
I used 

Black Olives
Green Olives

Diced Onions
Quartered Yellow Cherry Tomatoes

Take 2 to 3 oz of Goat cheese and crumble (You could also use feta cheese here as well). Sprinkle the goat cheese over the whole pizza.

Bake at 400 for 8 to 10 min on a pizza stone or pizza pan.


I made a Cilantro, Kale, and Spinach Pesto. Really any greens and/or herbs can be used. 

In the food processor add
1/4 cup of soaked, rinsed and dried almonds (or your favorite seed or nut.* Pine nuts are traditional)

Wiz those around until they are somewhere between almond meal consistency and almond butter consistency. You might need to stop in the middle and scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula.

Add to the food processor
1 good size handful each of Cilantro Leaves, Baby Kale and Baby Spinach. (you can use 3 handfuls of your favorite greens. Arugula is a good choice. Basil is traditional)

1/4 cup olive oil
1 to 5 cloves of garlic depending on just how much you like garlic. 
1/4 tsp High Mineral Salt
Wiz this around until you have a nice puree. You might have to stop in the middle and scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula.

Store in a small mason jar in the refrigerator. 

* Non-cross contaminated Sunflower seeds, or non-cross contaminated Pine nuts can be used if you have nut allergies. If nuts are not an issue then cashews and walnuts also make a good option.
