This recipe was inspired by Courteney Nielsen, who won our Gluten Freedom pizza competition in New Zealand. The low FODMAP salami and smoked chicken go perfectly with Gluten Freedom’s Everyday Pizza bases and our garlic infused mayonnaise dressing! You will need to go hunting for FODMAP friendly salami.
Note on garlic infused oil: Garlic infused oil is safe on the low FODMAP diet as it contains the garlic flavour but not the fructans.
Garlic infused oil is found in the oil section of your local supermarket. It should be clear with no floating bits of garlic. You can also make garlic infused oil at home by frying garlic cloves in cooking oil, until they are golden and fragrant (then remove the garlic before you continue cooking your meal). This is a low FODMAP way to capture the garlic flavour as the fructans can't leach into the oil.
Gluten free pizza bases should be found in the gluten free section of your local supermarket, but make sure you check for high FODMAP ingredients like inulin, apple fibre, lupin flour, amaranth flour, garbanzo/besan flour, as well as large amounts of soy or coconut flour. You can use normal pizza bases for any family members who do not need to be low FODMAP or gluten free.
Check the vegan soy based cheese does not include onion, garlic or coconut flour in the ingredients. Cheddar, Colby, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses are all low FODMAP.
Check the FODMAP friendly salami or chorizo does not contain onion, garlic or dehydrated vegetables.
Choose a mayonnaise that does not include onion or garlic powder. We like using Best Foods Mayonnaise (Lite or regular). If you are a meal plan member you can also grab the recipe for our egg free mayonnaise here.
Choose processed products like sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, or olives that do not contain onion or garlic in the brine/oil.
Herbs and spices are naturally gluten free, however they can become contaminated during manufacturing processes. If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check the dried herbs and spices do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check all packaged products, processed meat (like bacon), nuts, seeds and dried fruit do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
