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

    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
