Coconut Oil Post Friday Night Frittata

Friday nights in our house have always been family night.  For years I have made homemade pizza’s.  I make my own crust, pizza sauce etc and my kids both say that it’s better than the pizza shop/take away version.  That was all before my daughter and myself had to get much stricter with not eating gluten.  That’s where my Friday Night Frittata was created.

I did try other gluten free pizza’s.  I tried the coconut pizza crust as well as the almond pizza crust.  I also tried a crust made from gluten free flour.  None of these really spoke joy to myself or my daughter.  So I decided to skip the crust and create this cheesy, creamy frittata instead.  This recipe makes enough for leftovers and you can put whatever you like in it. Another reason I love it!
