Copycat Serendipity 3 White Pizza
A while back when I had to go to Las Vegas every year for Superzoo (a pet industry convention), I stopped with friends at Serendipity 3. They are known for their over the top comfort food. I call it "adult kid-food". If you want a triple decker grilled cheese and frozen hot chocolate this is the place for you. However. It is not gluten free friendly. My daughters best friend who is not Celiac or Gluten intolerant, ordered their white pizza and LOVED it. So I decided it was time to re-create it, gluten-free. I really enjoyed it. Even my husband who is a die hard meat lover, ate 3 pieces of this pizza and really liked it. If you are not gluten intolerant, then just use normal pizza crust. I prefer tomatoes on mine, but I went for the classic re-creation of their dish. I hope you like it as much as we did. Emily... this one is for you.
Gluten Free Copycat Serendipity 3 White Pizza
adapted from the curvy carrot
1 12 inch gluten free pizza crust ( I used Venice Bakery 12" Foccacia)
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing the pan
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
4 ounces (1/4 pound) fresh mozzarella, grated
1 1/2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/8 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Line a baking stone with parchment paper and add your favorite Venice Bakery Gluten Free Crust.
In a small bowl, combine two tablespoons of olive oil with the garlic, and brush the crust with your prepared olive oil/garlic mixture.
Spread the cream cheese on top.
Layer the mozzarella, feta, and parmesan cheeses, making sure to leave at least a 1/2-inch border of exposed crust.
Bake the pizza until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown, about 12 minutes.
Once out of the oven, lightly drizzle the pizza with the remaining olive oil/garlic mixture.
Sprinkle the pizza with the fresh basil, and serve immediately.
Tis' the season to be naughty fa la la la la, la la la la! There are yummy bites everywhere. I do my best to stay away from most of...
I hope everyone had a great weekend. I trust everyone is trying to get back to their healthy diets after splurging over Sup...
