    Dad's Gluten-free Pizza Crust is sure to Please

    Celiac.com 07/30/2007 - I love pizza, and being gluten-free put a pretty serious crimp in my ability to enjoy a fresh, custom-made pizza.

    Also, I've never been particularly fond of frozen pizzas of any kind, but I don't exactly have time to make my own crusts from scratch.

    Even when I could eat pizza from my favorite local pizzeria, I loved to make my own pizza from fresh pizza crust, and to add my own toppings and pull it piping hot and bubbling fresh from my own oven. Since I went on a gluten-free diet, I've pretty much given up on ever again really enjoying pizza piled high with my favorite things like pepperoni and mushrooms.

    But Dad's has come to my rescue and returned pizza to it's proper place of honor I my life. Dad's make a gluten-free pizza crust that fits the bill perfectly.

    gfd_dads_gfpizzacrust.jpgRecently,   I rushed home from a long day at work with pizza firmly on my mind. Now, Dad's   gluten-free pizza crust come frozen and I deviated a bit fro the general   instructions by putting it in my fridge to defrost before I left for work. When   I got home, I spread the crust with my favorite pizza sauce, sprinkled on a   generous helping of mozzarella, some pepperoni, mushrooms, threw on a few sweet   red peppers, added a dash of oregano, and popped it in the oven.

    I find letting the crust defrost first makes for more even cooking, and a crisper, yet chewier crust.

    When I pulled it from the oven, I was far from disappointed, I was overjoyed.   What a delight to have tasty, crunchy, chewy, delicious pizza crust back in   my life! Dad's   gluten-free pizza is crunchy and perfectly chewy with excellent flavor,   and a great pizza aroma. Once you add some sauce and cheese and whatever toppings   you like, you're ready to bake a great tasting, hot, bubbly pizza your family   is sure to love.

    I am intrigued by your description. I have found a pretty good crust at Whole Foods but wouldn't be adverse to trying something new, especially after reading your description.

    Thanks!

    Bakery On Main Gluten Free Apple Pie Flavored Instant Oatmeal
    I am not a fan of any flavored gluten-free instant oatmeal, but Apple Pie Flavored Instant Oatmeal from Bakery On Main is the exception to my rule.  There are no artificial flavors and they only use real dried apples and cinnamon which gives it a true homemade comfort taste.
     
    This instant oatmeal is also blended with chia seeds, quinoa, and amaranth for additional nutritional value but you would never know if you didn't read the ingredients.  Just add hot water, which makes the individual packets perfect for traveling, or to keep on hand as a healthy snack.

    Yehuda Kosher Gluten-Free Matzo Crackers
    It can be difficult for those trying to meet the requirements of multiple dietary restrictions. It becomes especially difficult for celiacs following a Kosher diet during Passover, as matzo traditionally contains gluten. Fortunately, Yehuda's gluten-free matzo not only fits the bill, but it tastes great!
    I might not be the most qualified person to evaluate the... well, let's say technical accuracy of this gluten-free version of matzo crackers. These are labeled Kosher for Passover and they're imported from Israel, but I am still not even entirely clear on the diet limitations of Kosher/Kosher for Passover, nor have I ever consumed matzo.
    However, I can say this: if my diet was restricted such that I could eat nothing but these crackers for a week, I really don't think I'd be that bothered by it! These honestly taste great – kind of like saltines, but I'd say I actually prefer these over saltines. They have a crispy texture, and a subtle wood-burned flavor that I quite enjoy. If you need gluten-free matzo for Passover, it's a no-brainer! Order these!
    Order them online at GlutenFreeMatzo.com.

    DNA Life Bars' Chocolate Coconut Fudge Gluten-Free Bar
    I tried DNA Life Bars' Chocolate Coconut Fudge gluten-free bar and found it to have a nice chocolate flavor, with a hint of coconut, and almost the same consistency as fudge.
    The best part about DNA Life Bars is how nutritious their bars are. They contain 14 grams of protein and 5.5 grams of fiber, yet contain only 26 grams of carbs and an ultra-low 2 grams of sugar! Besides being gluten-free they are also dairy, soy, corn and trans-fat free as well. To me this bar seemed more like a healthy meal substitute, rather than just a bar.

    Uncle Steve's Italian Specialties Organic, Gluten-Free Marinara Sauce
    Celiac.com 11/21/2014 - I recently had the opportunity to try an outstanding pasta sauce made by Steve Schirripa of "The Sopranos" fame, and I must say that I could not be more impressed.
    When given the option between homemade sauce or jarred, I normally opt for homemade, however, this perfectly made marinara sauce offers a clear exception to my rule. This rich tasting sauce has the perfect mixture of spice, seasonings and quality ingredients—and it tastes wonderful on your favorite gluten-free pasta.
    Besides tasting great it is also certified organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, kosher and contains no added sugar.
