Tostada Pizza

Once again, on my quest to find gluten free things my daughter will eat. The biggest challenge for me has been lunches. I can't take very long to cook a real meal, but I don't have the luxury of throwing together a sandwich anymore because we have yet to find a gluten free bread she likes.

 I tested this idea out and it was GREAT! Much better than I thought it would be. I've been getting very annoyed by the fact that I feel like I end up having to make a less healthy meal than I normally would have because of gluten. I made my dinner menu a few days ago and actually had "hot dogs" listed for dinner because she doesn't eat the buns with her hot dogs. Uugh. So, yeah, this idea did get under my skin a little bit because isn't some nutritional goddess of any kind, but at least I can serve it with a size of fruit and feel a little better.

I couldn't stop eating this thing. It's just a giant chip with sauce and cheese on it for crying out loud. So why is it soooo good?

What you will need:

  • Tostadas (I didn't even know where to find these when I went to get them.  How sad. They're just by all of the other tortilla's. Duh.)
  • Your favorite marinara/pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese (I used cheddar as well)
  • Pepperoni slices (My kids like the little baby ones because of their cuteness?)
  • Any other toppings you like on a regular pizza
  • Spread the marinara sauce on before adding your cheese and toppings
  • Turn oven on to 350 degree's and warm tostadas until cheese is melted and toppings are hot


  1. Where do you find/buy baby/mini pepperoni slices?

  2. Oh, great question! I happened to be at Walmart when I found them the first time and they were right next to the regular sized ones in the refrigerated section by the sausages and things :).

  3. I like to put salsa on the tostada then lots of cheddar topped with jalapeno peppers. Yum!!
