Chewy bagels seasoned with roasted garlic and oregano act as the crust for these gluten free, dairy free mini pizzas.



  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare dough as stated in the recipe instructions but remember to mix the garlic and oregano into the dry ingredients. Ball of dough in the bottom of a metal mixing bowl.
  3. Dust a clean work surface or a sheet of parchment paper with a little extra tapioca starch. Divide the dough into four equal pieces and form each into smooth balls of dough. Place the dough on your work surface and just slightly flatten them with your hand to get them a little wider (and bagel shaped!) Use your thumb to punch a hole in the center of each bagel. Four uncooked bagels on parchment.
  4. In a small saucepan, bring the 5 cups of water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, add one bagel and boil for 2 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Use a heat-resistant slotted spoon to check that the bagel doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot when you first put it in. Remove with the slotted spoon and repeat the process with the three remaining bagels. A single bagel boiling in a pot of water.
  5. Bake the bagels on the parchment lined baking sheet for approximately 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the bagel comes out clean and the middle no longer looks “gummy”. Note that these don't brown very much at all.
  6. Keep the oven on but allow bagels to cool to a temperature you can handle them comfortably then slice each in half. Spread pizza sauce onto each half then top with the dairy free mozzarella and toppings of choice.
  7. Return to oven for another 5-10 minutes (basically until the cheese melts and the toppings are heated). Allow the bagel pizzas to cool slightly then serve fresh.
