How to Make a Gluten Free Supreme Pizza
The first order of business for this pizza is its foundation – the gluten-free crust. It’s super quick and easy to throw together. For ingredients and step-by-step instructions detailing how to make it, check out the recipe here! Once that’s done, you can focus on the fun part – adding all the toppings!
Pre-Bake Crust: Prepare and par-bake the crust as directed in the recipe above, or following the directions of your favorite homemade or storebought crust.
Cook Sausage: While the crust is pre-baking, remove the sauce from the casing and saute it in a skillet over medium heat, breaking it up as it cooks, until fully cooked and no longer pink. Set aside.
Spread Sauce Over Crust: Spread an even layer of sauce over the crust.
Add Toppings: Scatter the cooked sausage over the sauce, followed by pepperoni, red and green pepper, onion, olives and mushroom.
Add Cheese: Top with the mozzarella cheese and the parmesan cheese.
Bake: Return the prepared pizza to the oven and bake it for 10-15 minutes, or until the edges of the crust are golden brown.
Garnish & Serve: Remove your pizza from the oven and garnish it with parsley, if desired. Slice and enjoy!
Supreme Pizza Toppings
The idea of a “Supreme Pizza” is that it takes all of the best pizza toppings and combines them on top of one pie. It’s somewhere between a veggie pizza and a meat-lovers pizza, traditionally including sausage, pepperoni, olives, bell peppers, and onions. I stuck with that combo for this recipe, adding mushrooms and parmesan cheese in addition to the mozzarella. For your supreme pizza, use the toppings that taste the best to you!
Tips for Success
Want some more advice for making a gluten-free supreme pizza from scratch? These quick and easy tips have got you covered.
- Don’t Forget to Pre-Bake: It’s important to partially bake the crust before you cook it with the toppings on. This should only take 8-10 minutes. If you skip this step, your crust won’t cook all the way – and no one wants a floppy pizza!
- Control the Amount of Crust: If you like a smaller crust on your pizza, spread out the sauce and toppings as close to the edge as you can. If you want a bigger crust, leave more space.
- Don’t Underbake or Overbake: When your pizza is done, the crust will be golden and the cheese will be bubbly. Avoid baking this pizza for too long or too little.
- Don’t Go Overboard with Toppings: You can totally add additional toppings to this pizza, but within reason. Don’t try to stuff on an extra pound of toppings, or the pizza won’t bake properly.
There are tons of ways to change up this pizza to make it your own. Here are some suggestions!
- Use a Different Sauce: Sometimes, classic pizza sauce really hits the spot. Other times, it feels boring! This pizza tastes amazing with alfredo sauce, pesto sauce or vodka sauce as a substitute.
- Use Turkey Sausage or Ground Beef: Italian sausage is a well-loved pizza topping, but turkey sausage and ground beef are also excellent choices for supreme pizza.
- Try Other Cheeses: Who doesn’t love cheese? If you prefer your pizzas with feta or cheddar, go ahead and use one of those in place of the parmesan or mozzarella. Other options include goat cheese, provolone, gorgonzola, etc.
Make it a Meal
The healthy ingredients loaded onto this pizza make it a sufficient meal all its own. But there are also plenty of scrumptious sides to pair it with!
- Have an Appetizer: If you are having a party, why not start the evening with some Air Fryer Zucchini Fritters with a roasted tomato topping.
- Serve with Cheesy Breadsticks: There are regular breadsticks, there are breadsticks with cheese, and then there are Gluten Free Cauliflower Cheesy Bread Sticks. They blow the other two out of the water! And they’re served alongside a dreamy buffalo marinara dipping sauce.
- Serve with Salad: A cool, refreshing salad is the perfect partner for Supreme pizza, especially in the summertime! This Mango Blackberry Goat Cheese Salad is bursting with fresh flavors and light enough to be paired with a hearty pizza like this one.
- Pair with Fries: These 15-minute Italian Herb Oven Fries are certified comfort food. And they’re made with only 4 ingredients!
How to Store and Reheat Leftovers
Leftover supreme pizza should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge. It will stay fresh for up to 3 days. To reheat it, place it in a 400°F oven for 5-10 minutes, until the cheese is sizzling.
Things You’ll Need
- You’ll save yourself a lot of stress if you line that pan with parchment paper.
- I love using my paddle grater to shred cheese.
- As I mentioned, be sure to get Instant Yeast, if you are using this recipe.
- And while I use a variety of 1:1 gluten free flour blends, Bob’s Red Mill is usually my go-to.
