18 posts in this topic

tried this tonight - it was easy and i didn't hate it (although i spread it thinner than the package says and probably baked it longer)  i had seconds.  it's a little 'sweeter' than i anticipated but i would try it again <ok, y'all i am sooo gonna play with it lolz it's *dough* already made)   it contains soy and egg, so i wouldn't eat it every day (soy hates me) but it sure was easy.  

 

anybody else try it?  what'dya think?

Better than the premade ones you buy in the freezer section.  Easy to play with as well.  I liked it.

 

Yes, expensive but if you're looking for coupons Pillsbury has $1 off one tub on their website. And coupons dot com has $0.75 off coupons on their page.

I used it to make these:

I liked how easy they were to roll out - not sticky like most gluten-free dough. I would use them again for appetizers. They were very chewy. My older son thought you could use it to make a sweet version of the pizza rolls.

Loved the convenience of it...but I was disappointed because I thought it was too sweet! I need to try it in different recipes, not just for making pizza.

I tried it and didn't think it was too bad. But this was my 1st time trying gluten free pizza. It was a little chewy and I would make it thinner next time. But it would take care of a pizza craving. It was convient and very easy to make that's what I like about it.

I've not seen it yet... but I'm a huge fan of Namaste pizza crust mix. All it needs is water and a splash of olive oil. Rather than two huge crusts, I make 4 to 6 smaller crusts... bake them off... top one and freeze the rest. They are delicious!

I picked it up and even had it in my shopping cart and then put it back....I am so hesitant to try new things.  So many of the substitutes I really don't care for. I was a person who practically lived on bread my whole young life,  not until the last 10 years have I had real problems.  So it is taking some getting used to.  But I haven't had a piece of pizza since going gluten free and I sure do miss it.   But it is the crust I probably miss most.  I might try it.....

after trying soooooooooo many different recipes (and now i want to try the namaste, too, but it is not easily found in my hick town lolz) this was at least easy and co-operative dough.  i have different things in mind for it next time i buy it.  the crust isn't crumbly or gritty or rubbery and you can't beat the 'plop it out of the container, spread on pan with greased hands, pop in oven' part.  lolz - i have visions of my failed pizza doughs, the worst one was rolling *extremely sticky* dough between 2 pieces of plastic wrap.  dough everywhere, stuck to everything, and plastic wrap and i were never friends to begin with.  at least my husband got a good laugh out of it, while he untangled me and tried to salvage said dough <which turned out terrible, anyway.  at least if i'm going to have mediocre pizza, i don't have to make a super-human effort!  LOLZ  :lol:

I think I will have to get some........I think that was another one of my hesitations,  I have heard similar horror stories about trying to roll out gluten free pizza dough. So the fact it is easy to handle, that is a plus.  I don't mind if it is a little sweet,  well I will just have to give it a try,  because if I like it,   I think it will give me some new recipe ideas.  One of the hardest things for me is trying to accumulate a variety of tasty gluten free tried and true dishes.   It is kind of hit and miss at this point.

have you been on the cooking & baking forum - lots of ideas and recipes there.   if you have any sort of 'comfort food' you would like to make gluten free, they can help with substitutions and whatnot :)

I have tried it, twice already :)  It is better than any of the frozen crusts.  It is a bit sweet, but not overly sweet-however I can see this being good for a dessert pizza or another sweet use.  It spreads fairly easy and doesn't stick.  I would let it sit out a few minutes it makes it even easier to pat out into the pan.  I baked it a little longer than it said, which helped it not be as chewy as the first time I prepared it.  I have TMJ (jaw pain) problems so I am super sensitive to anything chewy, though.

 

I hope this stays on the market, I think it is going to be a permanent part of my recipe rotation.  With classico pizza sauce, mozzarella, a few pepperoni, and as many mushrooms as I can fit on top.  In fact, I think the sweetness of the dough makes it go REALLY well with classico sauce.  May be just me, though. :)

i have used it for the second time, now, made it super-duper thin and my sauce a little less sweet - it wanted to stick to the pan a little in the middle, so next time i'm gonna oil the living sh!t out of it - but i have been having a slice here and there for days and no adverse reaction (not even from the soy, i am pleasantly surprised!)  i think my next one will be a white pizza  (shout out to shadow!   lolz)

    • I was only asking because when ferritin is low that you can experience hair loss/fatigue etc. even if your other iron levels are in range. This just happened to me so I thought I would share just in case it helps you. Ferritin should be above 50 to be optimal, not just "in range."  I've been on iron supplements and much better now. This may not be your problem at all, but I would have them check your ferritin levels. Low iron or anemia is common with celiac. The ferritin test is measuring how much iron is stored in your body. FYi: Iron binding capacity is really telling you how much protein your liver is making in order to carry that iron around. Usually, iron binding capacity will be higher in the range when iron is low. Edit: Also my blood pressure was low when my ferritin level got very low.
    • Hello I'm happy to join, any help is greatly appreciated as it can be difficult by times for sure. Unfortunately, I have been told my doctor has definitely not been doing anything correctly and very backwards about Alot of things. I live in canada, and there are celiac support groups I have found but I am about 2 hours away from any. I live in a pretty rural area. Although,  I have still received some help from them , they prefer a diagnosis before helping out to much. My doctor has me on a waiting list to see a gastrointestinal specialist but whenever I called her office to inquire about an appointment time I was told there was a very long wait and that I was considered to be a non emergency. So I am waiting to get an appointment. I have seen a dermatoligist for some of my rashes and she said it was dermatitis and gave me different creams for them.  It is frustrating because I don't know how to go about getting a actual diagnosis besides this biopsy. I was told to request a different specialist, but supposedly there is a waiting period for most in our area. 
    • Thanks for all of the replies. I've just found out I'm not getting to see a dietician because of not having a definite diagnosis which is another blow. I've had loads of bloods done but they just say they're all normal. I did have low vitamin D and high parathyroid but it's sorted itself out after a course of high dose vitamin D and they're not checking it again for a year. No chance of getting referred to endocrinology, gastro won't do it and neither will my gp. I've tried giving up coffee and all fizzy juice and it hasn't made a difference. I'm exhausted and scared and still have no clue what to do next. My gp has zero experience dealing with this type of thing - last time I was there she said it could be because I've restricted my diet too much and I should eat more gluten-free replacement products - everything I've read online says this is the worst thing to do! I'm asking for a copy of the last blood results this week so I can go through them myself but other than that I'm pretty stuck. 
    • I really am iffy on talking about this side of my gluten issues, I think I am about to ruin my reputation on this forum coming about as some extreme crazy guy saying this but I wanted to get this off my chest and perhaps see if anyone else might share a similar trauma. I get emotional recalling it, this side of my reactions, as it is most ingrained and very traumatizing experience, and I am not proud of it as the mentality I have now disgust me but I am going to come out about it. One of the scariest things in this world is when your own mind turns against you, when you can not think about what you want to think about, when you can not do what you know you should be able to do. When I got glutened really bad these where things I felt with my own mind would start looping, and thoughts would not come together. I would loose comprehension, feel like I know I should be able to think about something but my mind was not working. The same thing looped over and over and over like a broken record, This led to anger, anxiety, depression, panic, top it off with loss of feeling in my hands and feet, and the pains in the gut......it was a nightmare. I would go as far as beating my head against walls and punching them out of frustration as to why my own body and mind where not working, I just wanted it to end the pain to stop. I still have scars on my fist from punching into a nail in a stud once and kept going.....I scared everyone and myself distanced my self from loved ones. And started running a bucket list accepting that I was going to die soon. Hell to this day parts of the brain damage seem to be permanent as I can no longer do computer programing or some forms of math, they just no longer make any sense or connect. Then we learned what was causing it, and once the symptoms started to fade, I would get very angry if someone in the shared house did something stupid and got me sick again. The fear of going back to that caused violent and drastic actions to get away from what was making me sick. The sheer fear of my own mind turning on me led me to drastic actions to prevent it, throwing everything away I thought could make me sick, making sure no one else used that kitchen, used freezer paper and gloves when fixing my foods and working in there. I really destroyed and burned all bridges I had then and alienated myself from others. In the end it motivated me to learn how to cook, to get and renovate my own apartment in a building downtown, and start a business to pay for my new diet, by selling safe food to others with this issues locally at farmer markets. But it changed me on a very deep level, that traumatic experience to this day I have a issue looking at others and dealing with other humans who eat that stuff.......the stuff that breaks my mind and body so horrifically. If I have to compare it to something its like watching aliens drinking antifreeze and eating poison.....it causes a subconscious level of disgust and slight envy. I really can not even look at the stuff without recall what it does and feeling a twitch. I know I am the alien here, but it feels vise versa, and I look down on the normal people as odd creatures.  I go to the store and find myself overly avoiding contamination, keeping stuff in my own bags, asking the cashier to scan and bag it as I pass it not letting it touch that flour I see on the belt. I am hyper sensitive to the stuff I know and that fear semi dominates my mind as crazy as it sounds.  I am recovering and am forcing myself to try to mingle with other humans overlooking that one thing, but that deep rooted trauma still flares up as a protective measure especially around foods.  I could talk on and on about the other side effects but this one is the hardest to talk about it, and I feel others might be able to relate to it.    
    • Time.  You need time to heal.  Yeah, I am like a broken record!  😄 So...Lycra is your best friend for now (that and old baggy sweats!).  Hang in there!  Hugs!
