mustard on pizza?

when it's cheeseburger pizza, totally!  

thought i would share another successful supper with you all.  though this one isn't completely from scratch.  not sure i want to venture into trying to make a gluten free crust from scratch when there are so many good options already so handy.  

now when i want a completely made pizza with no work on my part, i call up Sam and Louie's (who have 3 locations in Lincoln & a new one in Seward too).  they have a great gluten free pizza and are awesome about letting me customize what i want on it; even leaving cheese off of Isaac's 1/2 (cuz he's g-free, dairy free for now).  but, as nice as it is to order in, it can get a bit pricey.  

so for a good at home pizza, i've been using a mix.  this mix in fact...

Bob's Red Mill Pizza Crust Mix
Nick actually likes it!  and that's saying a lot considering this is the man who has described gluten free food as "cardboard like" when talking with others.

and the great thing about homemade pizza is you can throw bits of leftover this and that on top and use up all the random little amounts of things you have floating around in your fridge.  :)  like i did last night.

i won't bother writing it out like a regular recipe because, well, it's pizza and i would assume you all know how to assemble a pizza.  so instead i'll just share what i topped mine with.

i browned up a bit of hamburger with some veggies i had on hand, like a yellow onion & a green bell pepper from my garden, along with a clove of garlic.  i waited and only added the jalapeno onto my & Nick's slices because the boys tend to shy away from spicy things.  

in order to make it taste more like "hamburgers" rather than Italian style, i seasoned the meat with the things i would normally mix into my beef when making patties.  

1) Kosher salt

2) Black Pepper

3) Marjoram leaves

4) soy sauce (gluten free)

now you might think i'm kind of weird adding the soy sauce, but it's actually really great.  i only do a dash or two of it, and it gives the beef a bit deeper flavor.  it's amazing the things that you will find work well, when all your normal go-to's are removed do to a food issue (Worcestershire sauce isn't gluten free.  boo!)

the rest of the ingredients were pretty strait forward...
- tomato sauce (not marinara, just the plain old can)
- a good swivel of mustard
- veggies & beef (that i talked about above)
- jalapenos 
- cheddar & mozzarella cheese

sorry i didn't get a picture of it when it came out of the oven. we were hungry and it was gone before i knew it!  :)
