Salmon, Spinach and Cream Cheese Pizza (Low FODMAP & Gluten Free)

Benny Joy SmithComment

I am a pizza fanatic. There, I said it. Give me a deep dish, doughy pizza covered in veges and meat and dripping with cheese and I am one satisfied lady. Unfortunately, due to IBS I have been reduced to thin crust gluten free bases and limited toppings. Onions? Forget about it! 

With this revelation, I have adjusted my tastebuds and now even enjoy the taste of thin crust. I have been crafting delicious low FODMAP pizzas for a few months and recently made this beauty, to which my family (who have perfectly healthy digestive systems) responded with rapturous applause. The contrast between the rich salmon and the fresh spinach and smoothness of the cream cheese is heavenly at best. You will be reaching for seconds I guarantee!
