Grain-Free Fried Pizza w/Pesto-Mozzarella

Grain-Free Fried Pizza is my new favorite thing. It would be an understatement to tell you that I’ve been “taste-testing” this recipe to make it perfect.

One thing that I’ve learned since my first Grain-Free Fried Pizza recipe is that there are three ways to make the perfect crust made of cheese:

  1. Use a good non-stick pan (I use ceramic) and oil it well.
  2. Cook on medium – if you cook it too hot, it will cook too fast and burn to the bottom of the pan.
  3. Don’t lift until it wants to be lifted. You’ll see what I mean.

It’s really so easy once you get the hang of it, and it’s just so delicious!
