Anyone else kind of depressed that it’s mid-August. Other than the fact that it’s the most amazing time of the year in Minneapolis, the month of August reminds me of back-to-school, which still gives me the heeby jeebies :P I haven’t been in school for over 3 years and I still get butterflies during this time of year!

This month my blogging besties and I have partnered with one of my favorite gluten-free brands – UDI’S! I’m sure everyone has heard of Udi’s because they really make gluten-free eating easy peasy. My recipe today features their gluten-free pizza crust made with a brown-rice flour base (yay whole grains!). One thing that I like about Udi’s is that you can pretty much find them in any grocery store (check the freezer section!). 

They have a huge array of products ranging from granola bars, to cookies, to breads, to chips! Celiacs/gluten-free eaters- your wish is Udi’s command :)

Kids or no kids- this pizza is SO EASY TO MAKE and only takes 20 minutes! The fresh mozzarella cheese, though. AND that basil. Swoon. It’s the perfect time of year to use up all your basil. 

Plus- you don’t have to deal with making dough because this pre-made crust is legit. Thin and crispy just the way I like it :)
