Nightshade Free Nutrient Dense Pizza Sauce

Have you ever heard of putting broth in your pizza?  It sounds crazy.  But now you can with my nightshade free nutrient dense pizza sauce.

Nightshade Free Nutrient Dense Pizza Sauce | Just Take A BiteIn a house with multiple people that are dairy free pizza is a tricky thing to make.  Especially when one of them is a child.

It is also hard to make pizza when some are sensitive to nightshades.  When you take away cheese and tomatoes you don’t have many traditional pizza components left.

So I came up with a solution for both problems that is also packed with nutrition.

I use butternut squash as the base.  It mimics the flavor of both tomatoes and cheese.  Then I simmer it with broth and seasoning.  The end result is a flavorful sauce that creates a pizza everyone can enjoy.  And it only takes about five minutes to make.Nightshade Free Nutrient Dense Pizza Sauce | Just Take A Bite

My oldest is not dairy free.  But she ate her pizza without cheese when I used this sauce.  She said it was the best pizza she had ever had!

The real test, though, was my husband.  I made a “regular” pizza for him with wheat crust and cheese.  I simply swapped regular pizza sauce for my nightshade free sauce.  He said he couldn’t really tell the difference!  He ate his pizza with no complaints.

That sounds like a winning recipe to me.Nightshade Free Nutrient Dense Pizza Sauce | Just Take A Bite

Do you miss pizza because you can’t have nightshades or dairy?  Now you can enjoy it!  Plus you’ll get a nutritional boost with the added broth.

I make a gluten free pizza crust, spread the sauce on and add our favorite toppings.  The whole family gets a fun, satisfying and allergen friendly meal.

This is a great option for kids.  It’s even great for a birthday party or packed in a school lunch.
