Pizza again? Yes! Like many of you out there, I celebrated National Pi Day with a pie! This year we had pizza pies! Did you do anything fun for Pi Day?
Here’s the cheese pizza with meat sauce. I’m visiting my parents again and yesterday my dad made spaghetti with meat sauce (Filipino style with both ground beef and sliced hot dog) so I took some leftover sauce and put it on a pizza with mozzarella cheese.
Mini-product review!: Normally I don’t use mixes, but today I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Mix and followed the instructions on the package. I don’t mind using this particular mix because all of the ingredients in the mix are actually what you would use when making gluten-free bread or pizza. Nothing extra. No fillers or chemical preservatives in this mix. 🙂 We were happy with this crust and how it turned out–chewy and soft inside. My dad ate a bunch of slices and my sister liked these gluten-free pies too!
Beef and onion pizza (using leftover bistek, a Filipino dish that I previously used in a pancit recipe). I used a tomato sauce mixed with a little barbecue sauce and a dash of Worcestershire sauce. Topped this pie with a bit of mozzarella as well. The crust was the same as the cheese pizza pictured above.
For Pi Day 2012, I made mini pies decorated with π

Nice facebook page! All the different types of fillings sound scrumptious. Looks like you had a fun Pi(e) day! 😀
I absolutely love everything! Especially the mini pies 🙂
Aww how sweet. Thanks 🙂
Those pizzas look amazing! Are they one a wholegrain base?! That would be fantastic with onion relish, lamb, feta and a few greens on top.
Thanks Em! I admit, I used Bob’s Red Mill Pizza Mix which has whole grain brown rice flour, sorghum, millet, potato flour, and and tapioca flour. I normally don’t use mixes, but this one didn’t have any chemical preservatives so I was fine with it. It is a nice mix that gives you a soft and chewy crust with a nice flavour. Your idea for toppings sound so delicious. 😀
yummy. i always keep a few bags of trader joe’s pizza dough in the freezer. it’s fun to take what’s hanging around and make a pie. almost always good. my favorite is fresh tomatoes, cheese and arugula.
That pizza sounds so good. Love arugula. Definitely nice to have pizza dough in the freezer. I think I have some in there that needs to be used soon, LOL.
Beautiful and looks delicious. Great way to celebrate Pi Day!
