Making Gluten Free Pizza on a Grill

Alright I know it's cold outside, but I have to share this AMAZING recipe with you!  It tastes exactly like brick oven pizza -- and it's 100% gluten free!

Chebe Cheesy Gluten-Free Bread Mix
GF Tomato Sauce of Your Choice (I really like Bertolli's Organic Sauce!)
Provolone Cheese (1 Pack)
1 Organic Green Pepper
Boar's Head Pepperoni
(Feel free to use any toppings of your choice!)

First, prepare the pizza dough as listed on the Chebe Bread Package. (I've noticed that I like making Pizza with the Bread, but Chebe also has a Chebe Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Mix.)

Spread the pizza dough out on a large piece of aluminum foil until it is in your desired shape (round, square, oval...or be creative!)

Then, place the pizza dough upside down on the grill, so the top side of the pizza gets nice and toasty.  (Make sure to move the pizza around the grill, so it does not stick.) After about 10 minutes, flip the pizza over and add your chosen pizza sauce.  Next, add cheese slices equally around the pizza dough and follow with other various toppings.  Cook the pizza approximately 15-20 minutes, depending on the heat of your grill. 

Remove the tin foil, and enjoy you're wonderful pizza!

**Tip: Make sure to oil the foil before spreading out the dough, so it doesn't stick!

October Celiac Awareness Dinner Success

This post has been a long time in the making! First of all, I would like to thank all of you who came out to Benjamin's Restaurant to be an advocate for Celiac Awareness! We wouldn't have raised the funds needed for a certified Gluten-Free restaurant without you! I would like to give another very special thank you to Patty and Julie Anne of Sisters Three Gluten Free ( providing delicious gluten free bread for our meal! Finally, I would like to thank Chef Regis McGill for taking care of our gluten free needs and preparing a wonderful meal!

Our meal began with a fresh greens salad. Attendees had a choice of three gluten free dinner entrees: Cedar Plank Salmon, Chicken Lafayette, and Pork Othello. I choose the Chicken Lafayette which practically melted in my mouth! Following dinner we enjoyed a dish of mocha gelato -- the perfect ending to our gluten free dinner!

As a thank you, attendees received a "gluten free swag bag" full of gluten free goodies. The Pamela's chocolate cookies were definitely my favorite!

Check back very soon for more information on the first restaurant earning Gluten Free Certification in Indiana!! :)
