Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Appetizers for the Kids Table!

November 16, 2011

Once the Macy’s day Parade has ended and the excitement of the morning has come to a dwindling end, the kids are ready to eat! Many times adult appetizers such as GF crostini’s and fancy cheeses are not particularly favorable for the young Thanksgiving attendees! Why not create a gluten-free appetizer that is healthy and will keep the kids happy until the big feast!

Healthy and Happy Kids? Alright!!

Rudi’s Gluten-free TURKEY-FUN Pizza Appetizer


1-2 Rudi’s Gluten-free Pizza crusts

nut butter

Fruit- Apples, Bananas (leftovers from Thanksgiving ingredients will work great!)

Vegetables- Again, Use up the leftovers!


Tomato Sauce

Cheese (or non-dairy alternative)


Preheat oven to 350F

Sprinkle a generous amount of olive oil over pizza crusts

While pizza crusts R baking chop up Veggies, Fruit and cheese and assort in a half circle on platter

Place 3 small bowls at the bottom of the platter and fill with nut-butter, humus and tomato sauce

Once pizza is nicely browned and crispy pull out of oven and slice into long thin rectangle like pieces

Disperse pieces periodically in between fruits and veggies

Serve your “TURKEY” appetizer and let the kids get creative!
