Oh, pepperoni pizza. So full of flavor, so full of spice, so full of grease.
A great cooking tip I read years ago in a cooking magazine was to place your pepperoni on a paper towel-lined plate and microwave it for a minute or two. ( I have a high powered microwave so mine takes 45 seconds-1 minute. You might want to start on the conservative side so you don’t have dry, overcooked pepperoni.) This heats the pepperoni and much of the fat is released and absorbed by the paper towel. Gross I know.
However, it does really work. And no more greasy puddles on your pepperoni pizza. It’s a simple step that really is worth the trouble.
And if you are new to gluten free pizza crusts, or just looking for one that tastes good, I posted a thick crust pizza and an easy pizza sauce. Even if you aren’t an accomplished gluten free baker, do try pizza with your kids. It isn’t as hard as it sounds and it’s loads of fun for them.
