Gluten Free Southwest Breakfast Pizza Recipe

    8 Servings


  • 1 Gluten Free Pizza Dough, Prepared crust or your favorite dough recipe
  • 1 Poblano Pepper
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Cilantro
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Roma Tomato, Sliced
  • 1/2 cup Sliced Mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 3/4 cup Queso Fresco, Crumbled
  • 1 Avocado


  1. Prepare your pizza dough and par-bake according to the recipe/package directions. (Mine baked for 7 minutes at 400°F)

For the Poblano Pesto:

  1. Blacken the pepper either over the direct flame on a gas stove-top or broil it, turning it ever few minutes until it is scorched all over. Immediately place the pepper into an airtight container and let it sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Scrape off the skin with the back of a knife. Remove the core and seeds.
  3. In a food processor, pulse the skinned poblano pepper, cilantro, olive oil, garlic and the juice from half of the lime.

For the Rest of the Toppings:

  1. Whisk the eggs with 2 tablespoons of milk or water and season with salt and pepper. Scramble them in a nonstick skillet, removing to a plate when they are soft so that they don't overcook.
  2. Sauté the mushrooms in a skillet with a little bit of oil or butter.
  3. Spread the gluten-free pizza crust with the poblano pesto (you don't have to use all of it, I saved some for dipping.) Top with the mushrooms, tomatoes, scrambled eggs, and cheeses.
  4. Return to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden. (Mine took about 7 minutes at 400°F.)
  5. Let cool slightly before cutting.

For the Guacamole:

  1. Peel and pit the avocado and mash it. Add the juice from the other half of the lime and season to taste with salt and pepper.
