Thanks to 21 Day Fix creator Autumn Calabrese and her brother, chef Bobby Calabrese, eating gluten-free doesn’t mean pizza is off the table.
Having grown up with pizza very much a part of their lives (their father owned an Italian pizza restaurant), Autumn and Bobby know a thing or two about how to make a killer pizza.
With their wealth of pizza knowledge and Bobby’s training as a chef, this culinary team has put together a flavorful alternative to traditional pizza.
Whether you’re choosing a gluten-free lifestyle or need to avoid gluten for medical reasons, this recipe is a must-have, especially if you have kids. No parent wants to deprive their kids of pizza, but we all hesitate a bit when we reach for that plastic package of processed pepperoni at the grocery store.
(I don’t think anyone really wants to know for sure what went into making those little circles of “meat”!)
They healthy answer to this pizza conundrum is to make your own pepperoni. This homemade pepperoni is nitrate-free, very low in fat, and contains no preservatives.
Using healthy, lean ground chicken, Autumn and Bobby show us how quickly and easily it is to put together a beautifully spiced ground pepperoni. Sweet paprika, black pepper, ground fennel seed, and a touch of cayenne pepper create that authentic pepperoni flavor.
Using their gluten-free bread in lieu of pizza dough and FIX Marinara sauce, Autumn and Bobby put together a completely FIX-approved pizza that won’t bog you down.
If you compare this FIX-ed pizza to half of a personal take-out pizza, this FIXATE pizza has 43 percent fewer calories, 46 percent less fat, and 50 percent less sodium.
Those are pretty impressive numbers — how’s that for good goals?!
