Now, we all enjoy pizza but unfortunately some of us have a problem with gluten in our food, and this recipe for How to Bake Meatball, Broccoli & Enoki Mushroom Pizza with Roberto’s Gluten-Free Crust is the answer to that problem.
In my opinion, every pizza could use a bit of greenery and the broccoli not only satisfy the health needs of our nutrient-craving bodies, but provides a great flavor combination, and is aesthetically pleasing on this pizza.
The enoki mushrooms really shine on this pizza with not only their flavorful, earthy tasting notes, but their interesting texture, and your ability to create something gorgeous to look at by arranging them strategically. These mushrooms are also called enokitake.
These crusts can be ordered with a pizza order from the pizzeria, or you can pick them up in person, as desired. You can keep several gluten-free pizza crusts in your freezer until ready to assemble the other ingredients.

These gluten-free crusts contain ingredients that are familiar to most of us and are easy to pronounce, such as extra virgin olive oil, raw sugar, sea salt, yeast, rice flour and filtered water. The crusts can be taken straight from the freezer and used frozen as you add your preferred ingredients to them. They come in a nicely sealed package on a baking tray.

- Toss the broccoli and enoki mushrooms with olive oil, then brush the crust with Roberto’s pizza sauce, add a light layer of mozzarella, followed by a layer of yellow peppers, leftover meatballs broken up into small pieces. Then, scatter a layer of enoki mushrooms and for some added nutrition I use some broccoli florets spread over the other ingredients.
- Season with a few red chili flakes, freshly ground black pepper. * Tip: You could add parsley, basil, oregano or scapes, if desired.
- Top off everything with another layer of mozzarella cheese and your delicious pizza is ready to pop into a preheated 550 degree F oven for 10 – 12 min, or until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden.
