Against The Grain Pizza
0

9 posts in this topic

While in Publix I discovered AGAINST THE GRAIN gourmet pizza for $9.99. Rather pricey I thought but it was a full size small pizza so I took the plunge n bought it for my DD. the crust was kinda thick n it was scattered with about 9-10 pepperoni slices. It looked pretty good, decent amt of cheese.

VERDICT: has a weird taste! Thought it was the cheese but DD said no its the crust. She took 1 bite n did not like it. Damn! I can tolerate it so I'll eat it 2mrw. Can't let $10 go to waste!

I understand the not letting it go to waste thing, I am the same way.  I recently had to throw away some Udi's chocolate chia muffins because they were horrible, even my husband wouldn't eat them and he will eat things like that usually.  Against the grain is grain free and does have kind of an earthy taste to it.  I like it, but I can see how a kid would turn their nose up at it.  Mellow Mushroom uses their crusts, FYI.  But maybe with more toppings piled on, the crust wouldn't shine through as much.

I haven't tried Against The Grain pizza, but I eat their rosemary baguettes all the time. I did not like them at first, but I love them now (but only toasted). They are great when sliced lengthwise and broiled with cheddar cheese on top. Or when sliced into little rounds and toasted, then topped with fresh basil, tomato, mozzarella, and balsamic vinegar.

Have you tried the Schar shelf-stable pizza crusts? They come two per box and cost about $8. I've only found them in a few places, though, which is probably good because I'd eat them way too often if I could find them locally. They are pre-cooked, so all you have to do it throw on some sauce and whatever toppings you want, then bake for about ten minutes just to melt the cheese. It's fairly cost-effective, as gluten-free pizzas go. The taste and consistency are great.

greenbeenie we tried shar a few yrs ago. Kids did not like it at all. Unless they'v improved it, not gonna retry it.  My DS will eat Udi's pizza crust, and DD used to but she won't anymore.

Against the Grain and Schar use a lot of tapioca.  It may be that you don't like that?  I think Udi's is more of a rice based?

i use udi's and am resigned to the fact that i will *never* find the perfect (nj substitute) pizza :(  but i also use the udi's for a gyro crust (instead of pita, i cut it in half and load it up and fold it)  also, i am craving a calzone - there has got to be a way to fold that sucker to fake a calzone crust....

 

i don't like it 'tapioca-y' either.  

 

lauratx - what was the brand you found at kroger (it's not at mine - boo!) that you liked?  i was going to request it at mine (and then hate it LOLZ probably)   ^_^

Against the Grain is the only pizza that my kids will touch.  We used to eat "fancy" pizzas pre-DX, though.  So they weren't raised on delivery pizzas with pepperoni.

The brand at Kroger was Russo's gluten-free pizza.  Here is their product page: http://nypizzeria.com/retail.php  So So So Sooo good!  Lots of fat, but hey, its pizza and it tastes good. LOL

    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler.
