Gluten Free Deep Dish White Pizza

Pizza night is known around the world for being a quick, cheap alternative at dinner time. And it is! Unless you're gluten free. If you're gluten free, pizza is mostly out of the question. Or if you do make gluten free pizza, you'll have to spend a bit of time in the kitchen creating it. It's true, this isn't one of those "20 minute meals" the world seems to rave over. This pizza will take time, but oh, man, is it worth it!

We kept our pizza simple and covered it with the necessary ingredients for an easy white pizza.You can do the same or let your imagination take over, open your cupboard and create a unique pizza on your own!

My favorite thing about this pizza has to be the onions. They're diced small so they take on a load of flavor in cooking. Plus, if you use sweet onions, you'll get an extra kick of flavor!
