Every Friday night in our house is pizza night. It has been a family tradition for several years now and the kids know that when Dad comes home from work on Friday, he'll have a couple of pizzas in hand.
We recently discovered that one of my toddlers has multiple food allergies including dairy and gluten. Pizza Night doesn't exactly jibe with his new dietary restrictions. I didn't want the family to have to give up our little tradition, but I also didn't want my son to have to watch everyone else eat a special treat he couldn't have. I needed to come up with something that he would really like and would kind of look similar to what the other kids had. I don't think he's exactly fooled into thinking he's eating what they're eating, but he doesn't seem to mind. He has something yummy too.
3Tbsp shredded coconut
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp ground beef or sausage, browned
1/4 cup spaghetti sauce
Preheat oven to 300. Beat egg and mix in salt, pepper, and coconut. Grease small round pan. You could use a square pan and have a square pizza or you could split the mixture into a couple of ramekins. I have a round Corningware dish that is about 4" that works perfectly.
Bake in oven until golden brown. Times will vary depending on what type of dish you use. After 10 minutes start checking on it.
Combine spaghetti sauce and meat in a small sauce pan and cook until heated through. Pour sauce over egg crust. If you don't have a problem with dairy, add some mozzarella or a slice of provolone. I sprinkle nutritional yeast on top of my toddler's pizza. It looks a little like a yellow version of powdered Parmesan cheese.
The first time I made this pizza I knew it was a hit because my little guy ate the whole pan!
