Gluten-free Pizza

My mom has Celiac Disease which means that she needs to maintain a gluten-free diet.  When she comes to visit it is a task to find recipes that are gluten-free but are also yummy enough that everyone will want to eat them.  She was recently visiting her new grandson and while coming up with a menu for her stay I ran across this delicious Gluten-free Pizza recipe.  It’s fairly easy and even better everyone will love it!! Here’s how it’s made…
Crust Ingredients:
2 packages softened regular cream cheese (8 ounces each)
3 extra large eggs
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 cup grated parmesan
Topping Ingredients:
1 cup pizza sauce, marinara sauce, or spaghetti sauce
3 cups shredded mozzarella
Your choice of toppings (we use black olives, Kalamata olives, turkey pepperoni, green pepper, and sun-dried tomatoes)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line three baking sheets with foil.  Spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
Combine all the crust ingredients with an electric mixer.  It should be the consistency of pancake batter.
Spread into six equal circles on the baking sheets.
Bake the crusts for 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown on the edges.
Cool at least 10 minutes before putting the toppings on. (This is VERY important in order to get the proper consistency.)  Spread the pizza sauce on top of the cooled crust and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.  Add whatever toppings you desire.
Bake for another 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and heated through.
Enjoy!! It got rave reviews at our house.
