I'm really not a fan of thin crusts...I don't like them super thick though, I mean, not like deep dish or anything, but a bit bigger. Probably because I don't actually like crust. Before going gluten-free, I would always tear the pizza off across the crust and give it to one of my siblings. Either that or only eat the soft, more doughy inside of the crust and leave the harder, crispier outside.


What I've found to be the easiest way to bake gluten free is to use the Wegmans gluten free baking mix. In most recipes, you can just use it just like regular wheat flour, the same amount and everything, just a straight substitute. 


Here's the ingredient list as per the Wegmans website:


Potato Starch, Cornstarch, Brown Rice Flour, Tapioca Starch, Sorghum Flour, Whole Grain Corn Flour, Evaporated Cane Syrup, Baking Powder (Cornstarch, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Aluminum Phosphate, Calcium Sulfate, Monocalcium Phosphate), Sea Salt, Xanthan Gum, Soy Flour. 


So far with it, I've made many things: Scones, cookies, pancakes, curry, and now, pizza. It's so ridiculously easy to use, even when using a "regular" recipe that calls for "regular" flour...and the taste and texture is spot on! It is a bit more, grainy I guess I would say than wheat flour, but other than that, it's just about perfect.

Hmm...I will definitely have to try it. I looked for it at the store tonight and didn't see it even though the site said it was there...so I just ended up making my own using the Wegmans gluten free baking mix which is AWESOME stuff!

Is is a thick or a thin crust? I ask because I like thicker crusts. But thanks for the suggestion! I really appreciate it!


I don't know if you're familiar with Wegmans, but it's a very large, NY-founded grocery store that carries everything...they've got a HUGE gluten free section, including frozen items! They also have sections dedicated to Asian foods and other ethnic foods. It's awesome! I know this is getting to be sort of a rant...but where I grew up/am from, we have a Wegmans (and thankfully there's one about 10 minutes from where I go to school as well), and tons of people who go to my school never knew the joy of Wegmans until coming here...and they always wonder what the big deal about it is...until they go! LOL.

I was doing so well...until today. I accidentally "glutened" myself :( I got ice cream, and didn't even think that there might be gluten in it. Not long after eating it, I felt awful, so I looked more closely at the label, and saw that the peanut butter cup part of it is manufactured on the same equipment as wheat products. This is Ben and Jerry's PB Cup ice cream, by the way.
