Kid's Pizza-Pizza (serves 5)

(yeast and gluten free)


  • 1 1/2 cups (75 grams) instant mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 cup (40 grams) Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar, optional
  • Optional sauce and toppings


  1. In a food processor, combine all ingredients except for oil and optional sauce and toppings, and blend until well incorporated. Let dough sit for 10 minutes.
  2. In a greased spring-form pan, push desired amount of dough on the bottom and halfway up the sides of the pan. You may have thin or thick dough.
  3. Brush oil over dough and place in a 425 degree F oven for about 30 minutes. Thinner dough might cook faster. If desired, turn the broiler on and crisp the top for an additional 5 minutes. Remove and prepare your sauce and toppings.

Dairy-Free Variation: Use rice milk or water and margarine. Omit Parmesan.

Low-Sugar Variation: Omit sugar.
