Pepperoni Pizza

Pepperoni PizzaThis homemade pizza is gluten free, sugar free, LCHF and pizza without guilt.  This is the best pizza crust ever.
The crust is really easy to make and does not need yeast or sugar and tastes great. It is easy to roll out between two pieces of parchment paper and slide over to your pizza pan. Leaving the parchment paper on the bottom does not stop the crust from browning up nicely.

There is no reason to make any special pizza sauce as you can easily make it from the few ingredients named in the recipe and spread onto your pizza crust. My husband thinks the sauce was specially made from scratch on the stove simmering for hours specially for him…he didn’t even notice the difference, and no complaints about there not being enough sauce on the pizza. Then the toppings go on and bake, incredibly simple and delicious.

My husband is a picky person when it comes to pizza’s and he truly loved this pizza. I made the crust thin and crispy, that is his new favorite or if you like a thick crust then don’t roll it out as much. Any combination of items can go on the pizza, but we really enjoyed this pepperoni pizza.
