Ok attempting to make a pizza tonight ..one thats not horrible. Im gonna go out and buy mozzerella cheese and pepperoni pizza sauce, and of course...a crust. My local shop has some gluten free crusts and i googled them and it looks like my choices are Kinnickinnick, Glutino, and Amys. Which one do I choose?

I like the Kinnikinnick crusts. They are thicker than I would have liked in my gluten days and my son thinks they are a bit sweet but the texture is great and I really like them.

Don't get Amy's. I tried one of their frozen pizzas and it was downright nasty. I can't imagine the crust alone is any better.

Of those I would vote for the Kninnickinnick. Gluten Free Pantry makes a French Bread Mix that makes a great pizza dough if you have that locally. A bit more trouble to prepare than the premade but tastes great. It did take a bit for me to get used to having to spread it with a greased spatula but worth it.

If this is your first commercial gluten-free pizza crust, be prepared to be shocked at how dissimilar they are to what you are used to. The first time I tried a bought one I cried. No one told me how bad they would be. :( I still have the remaining crusts in the freezer.

Maybe pile it high with tons of delicious toppings! If it is an option, grilling the crust really makes a difference as opposed to baking it.

I hope you are successful in finding one you enjoy. :)

Amy's is horrible.

Udi's is passable.

Kinnickkinnick is ok.

The best choice IMO is either homemade or if you're in CO, there's a local frozen choice at Vitamin Cottage...I think it's from "Outside the Breadbox" bakery. Definitely not at all stores, sold in a 2 pack. Large and almost tastes like the real think (crust only, you build your own).

Premade - Joan's if you want a thick crust, Udi's if you want thin and cripsy. Chebe if you're making your own.

udi's is thin but definitely not crispy. If anyone knows how to crisp it up please tell me.

Homemade is my favorite. We have tried so many store bought crust. The only crust I use that is store bought is from Gluten Free Creations in Phoenix. It is a bakery that is totally gluten free. It is a thin crust. Many resturants in the Phoenix area use it as their gluten free crust. You can order online.

But we have been baking homemade pizza crust for years. My favorites are using the Jules Gluten Free flour and using her recipe on her site. Or, if you like a mix, using the King Arthur Gluten Free pizza mix. I do prebake both of my crust for about 10 minutes before topping them. We make a thick crust pizza with both of these recipes. They are so great. Last week my kids had their friends over for a movie night, and I made homemade pizzas out of the Jules gluten free flour and her recipe, (I love her flour, it is in mho, the best gluten free flour blend) and they all said it was one of the best pizzas they had ever had.

Here are the websites for the flours and recipes.

Good luck!

My favorite is definitely homemade...and it's also the recipe from Jules' blog. I do use her flour. In fact I sent a few bags to my son-in-law and the last time I talked with my daughter, she says her hubby's pizza is even better than the best gluten-free pizza they used to buy. And they live in Denver, which is a gluten-free haven.

    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • Yes, the first time you use gluten free flours, it feels like a challenge. ... of a gluten-free living after her elder kid was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. View the full article
    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful.
