Expert Tips

Did you know? Pillsbury has a gluten free pizza dough.

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder can be substituted for the roasted garlic in the tomato mixture and 1 teaspoon garlic powder can be substituted for the roasted garlic in the butter mixture.

Shredded mozzarella cheese can be substituted for the fresh mozzarella cheese, and this pizza will still taste great.
