I agree, Selkie.

Welcome to DC, Sherb. Google "white pizza recipes". White pizza is awesome delicious, with lots of variations in ingredients.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

tomato substitutes

thanks for the replies, I shall try those ingredients where possible. My main problem is with casseroles or similar where it so often requires tomato paste or a can of tomatoes. I know I'm a pain, but when you love good food and your other half can't have this or that without upsetting her tummy, it makes it hard to modify recipes.
Ginger, paprika and other similar flavours are out of the question, although, thankfully, garlic is no problem. I guess we're not the only ones out there with this problem and I hope that raising the issue helps others as well. Has anyone heard of a web site relating to these cullinary problems?

Once again, thanks for the replies, they are really appreciated. Any more suggestions please?!
