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.

Recently,   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!

I would not worry. Things might resolve on the gluten free diet as celiac disease does impact fertility in many ways. I hit perimenopause at 40. It lasted over a decade (the range of years varies from person to person) and I experienced every single perimenopause symptom (on and off) in the book. I was diagnosed with celiac disease after I went though menopause because of anemia that would not resolve. You could ask your GP/PCP to order a hormonal panel (include thyroid) if you see him/her sooner. This will let you know if you are starting perimenopause. My Mom breezed through menopause. Not me!!!!!

Yeah, I was pretty surprised. However, lots and lots of fantastic wine and gin. Even the house wine at a pub is going to be a nice French or Spanish something. Also drank a lot of port. And they take their gin super seriously there, some really good stuff. The closest I got to having a beer was trying some gin distilled from geuze (wild-fermented beer). Very nice. Make up for the lack of beer by eating all the fries.

This sounds familiar. Does the pain feel like its actually in your ribs, sore when you press on it? It could be costochondritis, which is inflammation of the cartilage between your ribs. It seems to be one of those weird things that tends to affect celiacs, could be a symptom of glutening or brought on by something else. I had a bad case of it a few months after going gluten free. Started as just a weird ache, and one morning it felt like I was being stabbed. Spent all day in emergency while they ruled out heart issues. Anti-inflamatories helped and it went away after a few days. Never came back that bad again. It could also just be heartburn-type symptoms triggered by gluten. I would see a doctor though, because you want to rule out whether its your heart or something. You're still early in your healing process, so not only are you probably not an expert at the gluten-free diet yet, but your body is readjusting to the new reality and doing all kinds of weird stuff. Hopefully this will resolve soon and not be a regular occurrence. It would only have a connection to your bowel issues in that it could be yet another fun affect of Celiac disease. Good luck and feel better soon!
