Pizza Scones (Gluten Free)

Mmmmmmmm…… pizza! Have I mentioned just how much i love pizza?! Almost as much as i love breakfast! LOL  I love trying pizza in new, fun and exciting ways!  New flavor combinations, with my gourmet pizzas, pizza bites, pizza bread, and now pizza scones! These are easily adaptable to be whatever kind of pizza you want. I went with a supreme-ish version, using sausage, olives and peppers. Im not a big pepperoni fan, but im sure it would be a hit! Im going to try a chicken bacon ranch version too! To make these dairy-free just sub out the cheese for soy cheese! These are also super easy and quick to make….. and they make a great snack too! Just in time for football season right?!?  These are also “hunter approved” I made these for the guys as a snack before they left to go hunting…….and they loved them! This ones definitely a keeper! Not your plain ole boring pizza, these are unique and tasty! Give it a try tonight! TGIF! Enjoy! 🙂
