Quick and Easy Chicken, Hummus & Arugula Tortilla Pizza {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}


Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl and Jess from Hello to Fit.  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

Today our theme is all about pizza but as most of you know who’ve been reading along for a while, I can’t really have pizza. I’m “allergic” to tomato sauce and cheese doesn’t typically agree with me. All that aside even if I wanted to enjoy a slice of ‘za, it would have to be gluten free.  

So when I needed to come up with a recipe to share today I was left scratching my head for a minute. Then a light bulb went off, BFree Foods had just graciously sent me a whole box of allergy free breads, rolls and tortillas to try, why not make a tortilla pizza?! I know, sounds strange at first mention but just follow me here. 
 
Honestly committing to the idea of a tortilla pizza was the easy part. Next I had to come up with an alternative to sauce and toppings that would make sense. Then, I had another light bulb moment. Use hummus! Hummus makes the perfect alternative to sauce and it’s an ingredient that I’ve used as a sub in the past. 
 
Once I had the hummus in mind the rest of the ingredients all fell into place pretty easily- chicken for some protein, arugula for some greens and a peppery bite and balsamic glaze to bring it all together.

 Before we get into the nitty gritty on the ingredients, let’s first go back to the bread.  
 
I mentioned BFree Foods briefly when I shared my Pomegranate and Crushed Pistachio Crostini recipe on New Year’s Day.  Not only are their products gluten free but they are also dairy, soy, nut and egg free.  
 
Their line includes brown seeded and soft white rolls, brown seeded and soft white loaves, multiseed and plain bagels and multigrain wraps as well as quinoa, chia seed and with teff and flaxseed wraps! 
 
The obvious choice out of those was to use one of the wraps (aka tortilla) and make a pizza with it which is exactly what I did! :)

I choice to use the Quinoa & Chia Seed Wrap with Teff and Flaxseeds to make my Tortilla Pizza just to give it that extra dimension of crunch and flavor.  
 
These honestly turned out fantastic and I could not be happier with how delicious these gluten free wraps (and the rest of their bread line) taste and better yet, don’t crumble! 
 
Making these little healified pizzas was pretty easy too and only required the wraps to bake briefly in the oven to get ’em crispy then another 2 minutes to top with my ingredients and they’re ready to serve!
