Brown Rice Pizza

healthy gluten free vegetarian pizza recipe with brown rice crust and loaded with veggies and pinapple

What?!  Make a pizza with a brown rice crust? What has the world come to?  When I first tried this recipe, my eclectic friend Barry Sockat happened to drop in and sampled my strange creation.  At first he was sceptical to say the least but after his third piece he was ecstatic over this marvelous creation.



5 cups cooked long & short grain brown rice  (about 3/4ths short to 1/4 long)
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt


1 15 ounce can tomato sauce
5 Tbls tomato sauce
1/2 tsp garlic
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano


Grated Mozzarella, Cheddar cheeses
Black Olives, chopped
Pineapple tidbits
Mushrooms, sliced
Green Peppers, chopped
Sliced tomatoes, cold


BOIL: Cook brown rice together as directed on package. (Include seasonings while cooking the rice)  Spray a medium to large pizza pan.  Scoop cooked brown rice onto pan and carefully spread out and pack down to make a well formed 1/2” -3/4” high crust.
SAUTE: In a couple of teaspoons of water, saute chopped mushrooms and green pepper until just tender.  Drain off water and set aside.
MIX & ASSEMBLE: Mix up pizza sauce and spread over rice crust.  Add a layer of grated cheese followed by well placed layers of mushrooms, green peppers, chopped olives and pineapple tidbits.
BAKE: Place in preheated oven at 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese lightly browns.
FINISH: Cut and serve topped with cold sliced tomatoes.
