Homemade Gluten Free Pizza #GetYourBettyOn

A crispy cracker like crust (look out Papa Johns) that’s the perfect base for all our favorite toppings. My favorite pizza sauce is this one and its super easy to make but any jar of pizza sauce found in the grocery that you like will do. And here’s how I did it!
