Recipe created by Stephanie Clairmont, MHSc, RD at The Clairmont Digestive Clinic courtesy of Udi’s Gluten Free.

Serves: 2


¼ cup   gluten-free pizza sauce      60 ml
4   slices Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread   4
¼ cup   shredded mozzarella cheese      60 ml
2 Tbsp.   chopped fresh pineapple, drained    30 ml
2 Tbsp.   diced ham       30 ml

Olive oil, margarine, or butter to coat pan.

Cooking Instructions:

Spread 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce on one side of a bread slice. Top with half the cheese, pineapple, and ham and place another bread slice on top. Lightly coat a non-stick frying pan with olive oil, margarine, or butter and warm over medium heat. Add the sandwich and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden brown, flipping once. Transfer to a plate and make the second sandwich with the remaining ingredients. Slice each sandwich into four “fingers” and serve with the remaining pizza sauce on the side for dipping.

Note from the Kitchen: Allow sandwiches to cool completely before packing for lunch to prevent sogginess.
