Celiac.com 07/30/2007 - I love pizza, and being gluten-free put a pretty serious crimp in my ability to enjoy a fresh, custom-made pizza.
Also, I’ve never been particularly fond of frozen pizzas of any kind, but I don’t exactly have time to make my own crusts from scratch.
Even when I could eat pizza from my favorite local pizzeria, I loved to make my own pizza from fresh pizza crust, and to add my own toppings and pull it piping hot and bubbling fresh from my own oven. Since I went on a gluten-free diet, I’ve pretty much given up on ever again really enjoying pizza piled high with my favorite things like pepperoni and mushrooms.
But Dad’s has come to my rescue and returned pizza to it’s proper place of honor I my life. Dad’s make a gluten-free pizza crust that fits the bill perfectly.
Recently, I rushed home from a long day at work with pizza firmly on my mind. Now, Dad’s gluten-free pizza crust come frozen and I deviated a bit fro the general instructions by putting it in my fridge to defrost before I left for work. When I got home, I spread the crust with my favorite pizza sauce, sprinkled on a generous helping of mozzarella, some pepperoni, mushrooms, threw on a few sweet red peppers, added a dash of oregano, and popped it in the oven.
I find letting the crust defrost first makes for more even cooking, and a crisper, yet chewier crust.
When I pulled it from the oven, I was far from disappointed, I was overjoyed. What a delight to have tasty, crunchy, chewy, delicious pizza crust back in my life! Dad’s gluten-free pizza is crunchy and perfectly chewy with excellent flavor, and a great pizza aroma. Once you add some sauce and cheese and whatever toppings you like, you’re ready to bake a great tasting, hot, bubbly pizza your family is sure to love.
