1/1 Photo of Vegetarian - Rice Crust Pizza
William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:
The rice crust is gluten free and healthy. I found a recipe about 20 years ago similar to my recipe, however, I have modified it in order to have it workable and with a nice taste. If desired, you can change the filling to a good old fashioned Italian Style filling.
