Bob's Red Mill Pizza Crust

6 posts in this topic

Okay, my fiance and I have just gone gluten free. I made pizza this week so that he would feel like I am not depriving him and had mixed results.

The mix makes two crusts, so on Tuesday I mixed up the dough, made the first crust, put the pizza together and went ahead and baked the second crust wrapped it up and put it in the refrigerator.

Tuesday's pizza was AMAZING!!!! The dough was soft and flavorful and just wonderful.....my fiance was in the kitchen eating the crumbs off the pizza stone. Today, I made the other pizza for us for lunch........and the results were not so great. Our pizza crust that was fabulous on Tuesday, now tasted much closer to cardboard than a good pizza dough.

So here's my question: should I have refrigerated the dough instead of pre-making the crust? Should I ditch Bob's and use something different? I was excited because this mix is readily available at our local grocery store.....but we can't eat two pizzas at once and the second one left me dreaming of crappy glutened pizzas.

I think it might be better still to just use half the mix and half the rest of the ingredients. If not then I think that freezing the uncooked dough will help it to keep for longer.

I thought about halfing the package as well, but this is a yeast activated dough mix and I don't know how successful I would be at halfing the yeast package.

Freezing dough could possibly work, but I am new to gluten-free baking and I wonder if this would change the consistency of the dough. The package says that you can save the dough in the fridge for a few days, but I was hoping to get info from someone who had experience with this. If not, I may have to experiment myself.

I was a bit bummed out because Tuesday we thought we had hit gluten free gold. Yesterday......not so much.

I use the whole mix but make it on a big rectangular baking sheet like a Sicilian pie, then cut it into 12 pieces and freeze what I don't eat. I can take a piece out in the morning and it will be thawed by lunch. I think your best bet is to make the whole mix at one time, either two round or one huge rectangular crust. I have not tried this, but often people will half-bake a crust, then cool it and freeze it for later use, so you could eat one fresh with toppings, then freeze the other without sauce and toppings for another time. And if you are using a pizza stone that has been used for regular pizza, DON'T! You will not be able to clean all of the previous gluten contamination off of it and it will transfer onto your gluten-free crust. Buy a brand-new stone or use metal pans.

I'll have to try freezing my prebaked dough next time instead of just refrigerating it. I think that the xanthan gum in the mix may have continued to draw the baked item in after it was made. My pizza stone is clean, I had two stones before diagnosis.....sadly one had never been used, so I pitched the other one and seasoned this one. No cc issues here. :)

I haven't used Bob's, but when I use gluten-free pantry mix, I freeze or just refrigerate the unbaked part. (If it will be a couple days, refrigerating, is okay) I found that baked ahead of time, as with most gluten-free bakery it quickly goes to "cardboard". Freezing does help delay this, especially if you pop in the microwave for a few seconds before eating (even cupcakes and rolls)

    • Enjoy Life/ Perky's Cereal
      I am super bummed. I just went to order my breakfast staple for the last 10 years from Amazon  - my case of Enjoy Life's Crunchy Rice - over the last number of years it has gone though name and packaging changes but it has always been there for me for breakfast There is no more in stock at  Amazon so I contacted the company and found out that they are no longer going to be making any cereals. No Crunchy Rice or Crunchy Flax .  Super sad.  I need to find a replacement and i am very picky. I am looking for a simple cereal not sweet and not mushy in milk. I am not able to eat corn so it can not contain corn.  Any ideas for me? Michele

    • Starting out
      Hi, as a Noob, I am a little intimidated by what may come to be a major change in my eating habits. My middle has been uncomfortable for a couple of years and I got no help or input from my GP so I went to a GI Dr who checked me throughly and found nothing out of sorts other than some minor irritation in my esophogus and prescribed a medication. My stomach/mid section still is uncomfortable and really disturbingly big. The GP finally suggested that I try being gluten free for 6 weeks to see if it made a difference. I have no other symptoms of gluten intolerance, as far I know. I've had anxiety issues longer than the stomach discomfort but I am having depression and lethargy so I guess I will try to rule this out. My question is, how strict does this have to be in order to ascertain that there is a correlation between my discomfort and possible gluten allergy? How stringent is the cross contamination issue, like using a toaster oven and other daily food prep precautions. Right now, eating like this for 6 weeks feels like 6 years. But if I start to feel better in a few weeks, I guess I'll make the transistion permanently, and I'd really like my gut to be normal looking, or at least not 7 months pregnant.  Female, nearly 70, 5'8", overweight at 170 lbs.  Thanks.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
