Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix
0

14 posts in this topic

I wanted to get some oppinions on the different Gluten Free Pizza crust mixes. I know of a few but would like some input from others that may have already ventured this way.

I use Pamela's Ultimate Baking and Pancake mix regularly. We have it on Amazon prime shipping for the discount. We use it for cookies, brownies, banana bread, etc. I tried it once for a pizza crust(found recipe from her site) and it was really runny. The pizza was okay, but it was a bit soggy.

I also saw on her website she has a product that is a "Wheat Free & Gluten Free Bread Mix". Her website listed two different recipes for a pizza crust. I also like that it looks like we could make just regular sandwich bread, rolls, maybe even bread to dip in olive oil on the rice pasta nights. Problem is I can't find a store in my town that sells the stuff. They only sell the ultimate banking/pancake mix which we already have. So I would be stuck having to buy $30 worth of mixes on Amazon. I really don't want to waste the money if it isn't good for pizza, breads, etc.

I also saw that there is Bob's Red Mill Pizza mix and a "King Arthur gluten free multi purpose flour." It had a pizza recipe on the back of the pack I saw at a store.

So what I'm asking... has anyone tried any of these products I mentioned (or something else I am missing)? My wife and I really miss pizza.

I just made King Arthurs pizza crust mix last week. It is pretty good overall. Makes 2 really large pizza's. Cut dough in half and freeze if that is too much.

You need to roll it out fairly thin , I just patted it out and got a super thick crust . Taste was nice, as was consistency.

Rice crust IMO tends to be sweet so a more robust sauce I think is best. I just thinned a marainara sauce with plain tomato sauce.

The King Arhtur Pizza crust recipe (using their AP gluten-free flour) is Excellent. It's the best gluten-free pizza crust I have made. It is time/labor intensive but so worth it. Another one I like is Chebe. Chebe is very different gives a great chewy crust and is good when you want pizza fast.

I tried Bob's Red Mills and it was barely edible to me. Tasted sort of like corn bread and fell apart when I picked it up. I tried it the next day for leftovers thinking maybe it would have gotten better like some pizza does and I nearly gagged it was so bad. I had to throw it away.

I have not tried Pamela's for making pizza crusts but everything else by Pamelas that I have tried (cookies, cakes mixes, etc) has been great.

ETA: Just wanted to clarify that this is the King Arhtur's recipe I made: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/gluten-free-pizza-crust-recipe

I'm not sure if they have a different one, but the post above mine mentioned something about rolling out dough. The "dough" in the recipe I made is really more like drywall spackle or thick cake batter--you can't roll it out with a rolling pin.

Our favorite is Gluten Free Pantry French Bread and Pizza Crust Mix. Each box makes 3 round crusts and the dough freezes very well.

How about making your own Pizza crust from scratch? It's really not that much more work. Here's a few helpful tips for you:

  • Cook pizza on a baking stone and make sure to pre-heat the stone in the oven before putting pizza on it
  • Prick the pizza dough lightly with a fork to control blistering or bubbling of the crust
  • Turn the heat up to 500F when cooking
  • Change the shape of your pizza's (ie. square or rectangle)
  • Use a pizza wheel cutter (kid's love using these)

Here's my favorite homemade recipe:

Sure hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Angie.

oops , No, you can't roll it out, I should of said pat it out as thin as you can

We tried the pizza crust recipe using bisquick and did not like it at all - it was very sticky and "ricey". It's not a mix but the Udi's pre-made pizza crust came out OK.

I've only tried Bob's Red Mill and I agree, it's barely edible. Will not buy again. I think the next time I try pizza I'm going to use my favorite recipe for French bread.

We eat the Bisquick gluten free pizza crust once a week. We actually love it. Mine does not come out sticky or ricey at all. Mine is a nice crispy crust. I do add 1/2 cup of Kraft Parm. cheese (shaker cheese)to it though before I spread it in the pan.

Pizza in a Pinch

Udi's Bread- Toasted

Put one spoon of Tomato sauce (I use Basil/Garlic)

Layer Pepperoni

String Cheese cut in half lengthwise and crosswise.

Lay 2 or 3 of the cheese on each slice of toast.

Broil in toaster oven until the cheese melts and slightly browns.

Yum!

Y'all made me hungry for pizza so I had to come up with something!

My son loved it. Guess I can buy less BJ's Pizza now!

Totally agree with making it from scratch. I have yet to find any even decent bought pizza crust so make my own (thin and thick crust). All the yummy charred bits! Mmmm...more like the real thing than bought (but then I practically live in the kitchen!). :D

I actually like the John's Red Mill, but it is a lot of trouble. I use Udi's and preheat the pan (I don't have a pizza stone) while the oven heats. Pile those goodies high! We love it.

Thanks for all the input! This really helps us eliminate a few options and try a few different products and make our own to see what our family really enjoys the most.

Thanks again!

I love Namaste pizza crust mix. It makes a very light and crispy crust. One mix makes 2 crusts, but you can just measure out and mix dough for one. I spread it out on parchment paper so I can cook it on the pizza stone that's been used to make regular pizza.

I tried Pamela's bread mix for a pizza crust (that's my fave bread mix!) but thought it was a little too thick and chewy. I like the Namaste much better!

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Thanks Cristiana. It was Mistyx7 and night driving. Migraine type is very personal but does not appear to be closely connected to celiac or my peculiar scotomas. If you think going gluten-free has improved it that deserves a separate topic!
    • Burning Sensation
      The last post was from 2011.   if you can eat a regular pizza crust with no issue, then gluten isn't your problem.  You might want to look for something else.  The amount of gluten in a beer or fryer cc is very very small compared to eating a pizza crust.   I am assuming you do not have Celiac disease.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
