Yes, you read that title correctly. :) Due to several health issues I have to follow a very restricted diet and one of the things I can't eat is tomato products. We often have pizza on Friday evenings, because it's something quick and easy to make. At first I couldn't eat dairy products, but we solved that problem by using soy cheese. But then I developed an additional health problem and could no longer have tomato products or soy products. My husband started doing the cooking several years ago due to my poor health and he can be quite innovative. He did some online research and came up with substitutes for both the tomato sauce and the cheese. Here is a link to the recipe for the tomato-free tomato sauce he uses. We freeze the extra sauce and use it as we need it. You'll need to add any extra spices you would like to make it into pizza sauce. This recipe is just the basic tomato sauce recipe.
Here is the link to locate a store in your area that carries Daiya products. I hope this post will help others who have restricted diets be able to eat some foods they have been missing.
- A good, heavy rain today.
