When my daughter was diagnosed as a Coeliac we tried lots of shop brought Gluten-free Pizza. None really worked for her and she was upset as she loved Pizza. So I set out to make one she would love with the flavours she would love. I searched the web for recipes and finally found a few I could play around with and make into a Homemade gluten free Pizza for my daughter.

What to do if a Coeliac comes for Tea
If you are catering for a Coeliac for the first time here are a few tips to help you
Having a friend, relative or young child who is visiting with Coeliac disease may seem a little scary what if I give them something that might make them sick? Should I just serve fruit salad?
In case you didn’t know gluten can be found in lots of foods such as bread, biscuits, cakes, pasta, beer, pizza and in many manufactured foods which may contain hidden gluten such as breakfast cereals, soups, sauces, salad dressings, crisps, chocolate, sweets and ready meals.
Here are some easy suggestions to follow:
- Naturally, gluten free food like meat, fish, dairy and all fruits and vegetables are a great place to start.
- The easiest option is to make a dish with no gluten containing ingredients.
- If you are unsure that a product is not gluten free it’s best to avoid, reading the labels will list allergy products in Bold.
- If your guest is coming to stay for a while talk to them about where you can buy staple gluten-free items such as bread, breakfast cereal and pasta. They may also offer to bring some food with them.
- When preparing gluten free foods wash your hands prior to cooking.
- Ensure all equipment, dishes and utensils are clean. Make sure you don’t stir or serve gluten-free food with a spoon that has come into contact with gluten without cleaning it first.
- If you are using a toaster, a great and helpful suggestion is to use a toaster bag. These are available in most supermarkets and come in packs of various sizes. Alternatively, use the grill to toast bread.
- If you are using a breadboard, ensure it is thoroughly clean down before cutting gluten-free bread.
- If you are using a colander, just make sure that it is thoroughly cleaned before draining gluten-free pasta.
- When cooking gluten free fried food, can only be cooked in clean frying oil. It is important that the oil has not been used previously used to cook breaded or battered non-gluten-free food.
What to do if you accidentally add gluten
When a dish is cross-contaminated by gluten eg. croutons in a salad. You will have to make the dish again, it is not enough to remove the gluten, unfortunately. But ask the person with Coeliac advice or if it is a child, check with their parents.
