Pizza Crusts

Has anyone tried one of those giant circular-shaped cookie forms? :)

I think I am going to try one, since I can't find pre-made crusts with no tapioca starch.

And I am not graceful enough to toss one and form it with my hands hehe B)

I'll let you know how it goes!

Hey! When I first found out I had Celiacs, I bought those big cookie looking crusts and had no problem with them. They weren't very crispy, which is the way I like it, but it was "pizza"! I put it in the oven first for a few minutes...then take it out, put all the toppings I like on there, and put it back in for about 3-4 minutes longer then it says...just to try to get it the most crispy I could. They are not bad at all! Then I discovered Bob's Red Mill Pizza Mix and Full Circle (I think that's what it is?) Pizza Mix...much more like pizza. So if you ever get brave enough, making your own with the pre-made mixes aren't too hard! Good luck!

*EDIT* I looked at my Bob's Red Mill mix and it does have Tapioca Flour...sorry!

Potato starch is a fine sub for tapioca. I like Irish Dave's recipe BUT I always let it rise overnight in the fridge. It makes a much better dough for me. I coat with olive oil and put in a big bowl. I take it out and let it warm for a half hour. I use parchment to roll it out on and spray it with olive oil--like Pam. It's not sticky and it's not all coated with flour. I have a handy little silicone roller I use, but I don't think that is essential. I prebake the crust at 425 for about 15 minutes and then lower the heat to 350 to finish the baked pizza.

Good luck! I have three kids, so making pizza IS essential for us. :D

Thank you everyone!! B)

I can't have dairy, so I will try to make David's crust without the milk granules. :)

And Rachelle, I will try yours with coconut milk and see how it works! :)

So psyched. HAHA

xoxo :)

Hi Colette,

For those that don't do dairy try using better than milk powder (rice or soy depending on other allergies) .

Best Regards,

David

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
