These Homemade Pizza Treats for Dogs are Sure to Be a HUGE Party Hit This Festive Season!

By on December 15, 2015

Almost half of us are apparently planning a special meal for our dog at Christmas, so it stands to reason our party planning across the festive season will involve them. This month we've found a fun and easy recipe to help you through the festive period and beyond.

The inspiration for this recipe came from our family's weekly pizza night, says Rachael Johnson.

We wanted to include our dogs and make sure what they were eating was healthy. These pizzas are gluten free, fun to make and are a great way to treat your dog. Cooking for your dog doesn't have to be complicated! They give us their best, and they deserve OUR best. Life is too short to eat kibble all of the time!

Gluten-Free Pizza Recipe For Dogs

Here's what you'll need...

Making the crust:

1/2 Cup Tapioca Flour
1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
1 tablespoon Flaxseed Meal
1 tsp Gluten-Free Baking Powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried basil
1 cup water or unsalted broth (chicken or beef)

Ideas for dog friendly toppings:

Mashed, cooked sweet potatoe
Low Fat Mozzarella Cheese
Grated Carrot
Plain, cooked chicken breasts, cubed
Cooked, ground turkey or lean ground beef
Cooked Broccoli
Cooked Cauliflower
Red Bell Pepper
Spinach

Method...

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray deep dish pie pan or pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, spices. baking powder and flaxseed meal. Add water or broth and stir with wire whisk or spoon until lumps disappear. Spread crust mixture into the pan. Bake in oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and add desired toppings. Place back into oven for 15 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Take out of the oven and cool completely at room temperature before serving. Never give your dog hot food!
The pizzas can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or frozen in a zip loc bag for up to two months.

Let us know how you get on and which toppings your dogs most enjoy, we'd love to hear from you!
