It’s a Pizza, It’s a Lasagna, & It’s Totally Gluten-Free


You guys, I just made something totally crazy delicious, and potentially deadly. Still, AWESOME. Because apparently I spend an unhealthy amount of time on Pinterest, I stumbled across this gem of a recipe that turns your lasagna into a three-meat pizza situation, but without the crust. It’s sick. And I mean that in the tween sense. You see, this is only the first layer -

According to the original recipe, there are three layers of this business. Since that makes five hundred tons of this gooey goodness, I cut it down a bit as there’s only so much cheese my family can digest. Also, the last time I ate three meats I got celiac, so I turned three into two. But if you want to go whole hog, please check out the original and go meat-crazy. Just make sure you’ve got your gluten-free pepperoni and sausage. I highly recommend Applegate Farms. Delish.

Because I also care about you vegetarian gluten-free types, I had this thought: Remove the pepperoni and sausage and replace with spinach and mushroom, and voila! Vegetarian heart attack on a plate. Vegans, I’m totally sorry you’re out of luck on this one because no one wants to eat this much faux cheese.

This is how you do it -

Gluten-Free Pizza Casserole

adapted from Cully’s Kitchen

Ingredients

1 pound gluten-free pasta
1/4 pound gluten-free pepperoni
12 ounces gluten-free Italian sausage
16 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
4 TB grated Parmesan
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 onion, chopped
1 TB olive oil
26 ounces tomato sauce

1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Sautee onions and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add sliced sausage and cook for five minutes, if pre-cooked. If using ground gluten-free sausage, cook until completely browned.

2. While sausage is cooking, cook gluten-free pasta according to directions, removing from heat when pasta is al dente.

3. Layer ingredients in casserole dish sprayed with olive oil like so: 1/2 of pasta, 1/2 of tomato sauce, sausage, 1/2 of mozzarella, 1/2 of Parmesan. Repeat with other half and pepperoni layer.

4. Bake on middle rack of oven for 40 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes, and serve.

Makes: 15 servings

    Hey, GIMB: (Just discovered you, and am intrigued by all things gluten-free…not celiac but like to eat GF, and have a celiac DIL and DGS)
    I’ve made a recipe very similar to this and it freezes well and tastes awesome the next day. This has been my go-to casserole GF recipe for ages. If you want less pizza taste, leave the pepperoni out. If you want a more ‘casserole’ taste, brown up some lean ground beef and add it to the mix. Make it up in single portions and you have a quick meal to pull out of the freezer. Yummy!
