Gluten Free Carrot and Zucchini Slice

Gluten Free Carrot and Zucchini Slice

I have taken the classic ‘zucchini slice’ recipe and made it gluten free, as well as added in some carrot to get some extra veg in there!  This is a great recipe to make in bulk and freeze for an easy weeknight dinner or to 

Gluten Free Veggie Packed Pizza

I love home-made pizza, as it is an easy way to get some extra veggies into the whole family.  Also, kids and adults of all ages tend to love pizza!  I have given you a really simple recipe here – but if you have the time (and energy!) you can make your own pizza base and pizza sauce.  This tends to be my ‘quick and easy’ weeknight meal – so I just use store bought sauce and base. You can also add other veggies – such as mushrooms, onions, olives, shallots or top with rocket once cooked.

Whilst this recipe isn’t dairy free – I find that most people with a lactose intolerance can tolerate hard cheese occasionally.  Otherwise, you can use vegan parmesan cheese to top this (I will post a recipe for this later).

Recipe: Gluten Free Veggie Packed Pizza


  • Gluten Free Pizza Base
  • Pizza sauce
  • 1 zucchini (grated)
  • 1/2 carrot (grated)
  • 1/2 capsicum (grated)
  • Either: Cooked Chicken or Ham (finely chopped)
  • Grated tasty cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  • Spread pizza base evenly with pizza sauce
  • Spread grated zucchini, carrot and capsicum evenly over base.
  • Spread chicken or ham evenly over base
  • Top with grated tasty cheese (amount depends on how cheesy you like your pizza!)
  • Cook in oven for approximately 10-15 minutes (or until cheese is melted and base is slightly crunchy)

Note: If you like your base extra crunchy – its a good idea to pre-cook the base in the oven for about 5 minutes before adding the other toppings.
