Whether you live gluten-free as a lifestyle choice or a healthy choice, it’s well agreed upon that finding good recipes and ingredients can sometimes be tough. Many factors can come into play that can limit your meal options, such as a lack of grocery stores with diversity, restaurants whose only vegetarian and gluten-free options are a measly salad, and bland recipes.
Luckily, in some places, gluten-free options are becoming more available and widespread as more people decide to live without gluten in their lives -- which is also great news for those who actually have Celiac’s Disease.
According to my mother, one of the worst parts about living gluten-free is having to watch the Food Network. A lot of the recipes the celebrity chefs make aren’t great for those with dietary restrictions, and even though the food looks delicious, those with restrictions can’t make it. But since the gluten-free trend has been around for a while, many celebrity chefs are hopping on the trend by creating gluten-free recipes to share.
Also, the best part about celebrity chefs creating these recipes is that you can be sure they know what they’re doing (they are celebrity chefs, after all). These are some of my favorite gluten-free recipes as told by celebrity chefs.
Everybody needs to satisfy their sweet tooth at some point -- and yes, I mean everybody. Whether you’re gluten-free, vegan, or are looking for a good recipe that may be a little more health-conscious, you’ve come to the right place.

Katie Lee does gluten-free (catch that?) with her canned chickpea pizza crust. Instead of buying a gluten-free pizza crust to indulge in those pizza cravings, you can make your own crust by just using some chickpeas, eggs, and gluten-free flour.
Once you make the crust, you can put whatever you want on top of it. Make it a meat lovers pizza, vegetarian pizza, or a classic cheese pizza. It’s your pizza, so do as you please. No matter what, it’ll probably be delicious. If you want to go true Katie Lee style, make it colorful.
Hopefully, these recipes brought you some inspiration to try new gluten-free things or gives you the motivation to actually make one. Speaking from experience, they’re all pretty easy to make and are definitely good. If you aren’t gluten-free, you can still make these recipes and you’ll be sure to enjoy them anyways!
