Hi, I am new to this forum!

My husband was diagnosed recently and I think I have managed to find recipes for most things except for pizza! I was wondering if there are any good brands in the store or where I could find a good recipe. I am going to be making a trip to whole foods here this week since they have a full gluten-free isle, not really sure what to expect lol.

Thanks :)

Welcome to the forum, Kellie! While I have been experimenting with lots of from-scratch recipes, you might want to first try a mix. Gluten-Free Pantry makes a French Bread Mix that makes pretty darn good pizza (recipe is on the package). You can get a couple of large pizza crusts from one package. Price is reasonable, too, considering that prepared pizza crusts are pretty expensive.

I pre-bake the crusts (stuck one in the freezer for next time around)...of course, this depends on how many people you need to serve. Top as desired and then bake again. At least this is my preferred way to make them.

Bisquick Pancake and Baking Mix, Gluten Free version, is delicious - and directons for making pizza crust with it are on the box.

We like Bob's Red Mill Pizza Mix - it makes enough for two pizzas, so I usually make one and save the second dough ball in the fridge for up to a week to make another.

I'd second the suggestion to stick with a mix rather than a recipe in these early days - gluten free baking can be very tricky for even accomplished bakers.

These guys gave you good options for making your own crusts, but if you look in the Whole Foods store's freezer section, Against The Grain makes two pizzas: 3 cheese and Pesto. And Glutino makes a decent personal size pizza...and crusts, too, I believe. Both good --if you feel like keeping some ready -made ones in the freezer. They are good in a pinch when I could not bake a crust in advance (or someone was late coming home from golf. :D )

When you feel like baking your own pizza dough, there are many good ones to be found. Google away! Mary Capone, Jules Shepherd, Peter and Kelli Bronski, the Gluten Free girl, just to name a few.

Welcome to the forum! :) If you need any more help, just ask!

Welcome! I also use Gluten Free Pantry French Bread Mix for pizza crust. My gluten eating husband also likes it:)

Thank you everyone for the comments, really helps a lot to try some different options to see what we like best :)

My favourite recipes are those you can roll out rather than spread. One good one is:

Chebe mixes, tapioca based, either the pizza or the regular bread box can be used to make a pizza crust. Good for those who want a chewy crust, can tolerate dairy, and have allergies to some of the other grains or can't stand bean flour tastes.

I put olive oil on the bottom of the pan before patting the crust into it, as well as sprinkling a little bit of safe gluten-free blue cornmeal, if I can find some (I'm very sensitive to cross contamination). Another gluten-free grain could be used, this adds a toasted grain flavor to the result like in regular pizza.

I'm a fan of the Namaste pizza crust mix that I find in the health food store (and even found a discounted bag at T.J. Max once!). I make the entire bag which is supposed to make two 12 to 14 inch crusts except that I make about 5 or 6 personal pizza crusts, bake 'em, and freeze 'em.

I like Udi's crusts, and my gluten-eating family like them too.

pizza!

Deby's and Outside the Breadbox make good crusts, although they are Denver companies and I don't know where their distributions stops.

My next favorite is Schar, which were on the east coast months before being here in Denver, so it's likely you can get them. They are 3rd because they are thicker and slightly dry/chewy, but they are good none the less and get bonus points for being non-refrigerated.

Last is Kinnikinick (sp?) which are square and good, but very thick and high in calories comparatively. They are also very sweet.

I have some pizza mix to roll my own, but haven't had the courage yet to mix.

As far as recipes, warm the crust, remove then we use 1/2 bottle of Meditalia (King Sooper/Kroger) "Roasted Egplant Tapenade" (tomato allergy) and coat the crust, rip up or shred some cheese, add toppings (raw generally, all vegetarian), more cheese and bake at 375

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I saw this the other day too & like Karen, wondered at the last line of the article. The article had me once again thinking about my deceased brother who was dx'd paranoid schizophrenic in his late 20's. He also had alternating constipation/diarrhea  but "they" always blamed it on his meds for the schizophrenia. We, his family, knew he had those issues prior to him being prescribed the meds but there is no telling the medical community something when you're talking about a mental patient.  Okay, I know the guy is selling something but the research noted in the article is valid: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/22/gluten-grains-cause-schizophrenia.aspx We knew about this back in the 50's & going forward. They even coined the term for it "bread madness". Why have we not recognized this in the psychology/mental health/institutions community for all these many years? Why does it seem to have been just shoved under the rug like some dirty little secret?  Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      My first thought was how many people that have been labeled as mentally ill or psychotic actually have Celiac Disease and never get diagnosed?  Their whole lives spent battling these conditions, being flooded with various meds and no one looks at their diet or does other testing!  It really is tragic.  I always wondered whether Patty Duke was an un-diagnosed Celiac.  She was finally diagnosed with bi-polar and ended up dying of a perforated intestine, at the young age of 69.  Ya gotta wonder........
    • Desperately Seeking DISARONNO!
      I think the company knows what the ingredients are better than us.  If you mean Amaretto, I have had it.  
    • Gluten free before biopsy???
      My doctor required me to continue eating gluten before the endoscopy for biopsy. She did say I could let up "a little" to ease some of the terrible pain I was having, but wanted me to eat gluten-containing foods every day until the biopsy. As it turned out, they were able to get me in quickly, so it was really only a few days for me. Both bloodwork and biopsy confirmed the diagnosis and now I am happily gluten-free! It has been a challenge, but having a gluten-free kitchen, checking labels on foods and being super-careful when going out has worked wonders. I am not 100% recovered yet, but getting energy back a bit at a time as my nutrition status improves. We don't eat out much - mostly at vegan places that declare they are gluten-free (although I still eat chicken, eggs, milk, and beef sometimes at home). One day, I'll go somewhere else - but not without checking first! Best of luck to you. I think it important to always double-check with the doctor when there are any questions at all. My doctor welcomes questions and I hope yours will too.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Thanks for posting I was just looking at this a short time ago. Something I found interesting was the last line of the article- " The psychosis that the woman experienced was an extreme condition and very unique, Fasano said. " While not common I am not sure that it is that unique.  There is a fair amount of research that has been done on the effects of gluten on the brains and nervous systems of celiacs.  Doing a search with the words neurological and celiac at places like Lancet, PubMed and the NIH can bring up some really interesting studies. Thankfully this impact is slowly becoming more common knowledge in the medical circles. Many of us have experienced in our families or first hand the way that the antibodies can impact our mood and thinking. It does seem miraculous when the clouds finally lift. I wish more doctors would test for celiac before pulling out the prescription pad, especially with kids.

      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.
