With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I’m sure most of you have a turkey thawing. Hopefully you have a menu planned, and perhaps have the work divided among many family members. For us, the family generally puts everything together, and we bring the sweet potatoes and the egg nog. We also have to bring all the food and drinks for our allergy kid(s). In the past, this has been SO difficult because I’ve never wanted him to feel excluded, so he received a replica of what everyone else was eating. The same went for our other two who required special diets. Whatever they couldn’t have from the group was duplicated. I can honestly say, it’s always put a damper on the mood for me because of the sheer amount of work… for one meal…
This year however was SO different. I took the good advice of a friend and asked our allergy kid what he wanted. Pizza. That’s what he wanted for Thanksgiving. How easy is that?! Now, I did end up making a gourmet gluten free pizza, and put a lot of time and thought into it, as I didn’t want him to have just any old allergy friendly pizza on Thanksgiving. So today I’m sharing two amazing pizza recipes with you. They both have the same base which you’ll notice, and then the topping are quite different. I’ve been told nothing but good things about these pizzas, so I hope you enjoy them.
