Migraine-free, child-friendly, cost-friendly, and even gluten-free if you need it to be. A note: Many pizza chains use a garlic butter sauce to flavor the crust before adding toppings. Think all that grease is just from cheese? Think again. This recipe provides a healthier garlic butter sauce alternative for you which makes the pizza taste more like the restaurant chains. If you can't have tomatoes, maybe the sauce will even be enough of a substitute.

Burrito size tortillas (use gluten-free, 100% whole wheat, or white, but check ingredients)
Three tablespoons butter or olive oil
garlic salt
One 6 oz can (small can) tomato paste plus 3 ounces water
garlic powder
dried oregano
one shallot, finely grated
Toppings of your choice (green pepper, green onion, shallots, or whatever you desire)
A sprinkling of mozzarella if your headaches are under control.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place tortillas on a pizza pan or flat baking pan in a single layer. Bake until they begin to bubble, about three minutes. Take tortillas out of the oven and immediately press them with a thick oven pad (or two so you don't burn your hands) until all steam escapes and the tortillas are flat again. Turn tortillas over and repeat directions for the opposite side. Remove from oven.
Prepare the garlic butter sauce by melting 3 tablespoons butter in a small bowl, or you may use olive oil. Add 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt and stir with a pastry brush. Brush the butter mixture over the tortillas. If you are using the butter sauce in place of tomato sauce, sprinkle dried oregano on the tortilla crust at this time.
Prepare the pizza sauce by stirring the tomato paste and water together along with 1/2 teaspoon each of garlic powder, salt, dried oregano, and finely grated shallot. Spread this over on top of the butter sauce with a spoon.
Add your toppings, and then the cheese, if your headaches are under control and you find you can tolerate small amounts of tyramine well. As always, follow Dr. Buchholz's directions for adding foods back in as outlined in his book.
Bake pizza until crust is slightly brown, or until cheese is completely melted if using cheese, about five to seven minutes.
