While in Publix I discovered AGAINST THE GRAIN gourmet pizza for $9.99. Rather pricey I thought but it was a full size small pizza so I took the plunge n bought it for my DD. the crust was kinda thick n it was scattered with about 9-10 pepperoni slices. It looked pretty good, decent amt of cheese.

VERDICT: has a weird taste! Thought it was the cheese but DD said no its the crust. She took 1 bite n did not like it. Damn! I can tolerate it so I'll eat it 2mrw. Can't let $10 go to waste!

I understand the not letting it go to waste thing, I am the same way.  I recently had to throw away some Udi's chocolate chia muffins because they were horrible, even my husband wouldn't eat them and he will eat things like that usually.  Against the grain is grain free and does have kind of an earthy taste to it.  I like it, but I can see how a kid would turn their nose up at it.  Mellow Mushroom uses their crusts, FYI.  But maybe with more toppings piled on, the crust wouldn't shine through as much.

I haven't tried Against The Grain pizza, but I eat their rosemary baguettes all the time. I did not like them at first, but I love them now (but only toasted). They are great when sliced lengthwise and broiled with cheddar cheese on top. Or when sliced into little rounds and toasted, then topped with fresh basil, tomato, mozzarella, and balsamic vinegar.

Have you tried the Schar shelf-stable pizza crusts? They come two per box and cost about $8. I've only found them in a few places, though, which is probably good because I'd eat them way too often if I could find them locally. They are pre-cooked, so all you have to do it throw on some sauce and whatever toppings you want, then bake for about ten minutes just to melt the cheese. It's fairly cost-effective, as gluten-free pizzas go. The taste and consistency are great.

greenbeenie we tried shar a few yrs ago. Kids did not like it at all. Unless they'v improved it, not gonna retry it.  My DS will eat Udi's pizza crust, and DD used to but she won't anymore.

 

 

Against the Grain and Schar use a lot of tapioca.  It may be that you don't like that?  I think Udi's is more of a rice based?

i use udi's and am resigned to the fact that i will *never* find the perfect (nj substitute) pizza :(  but i also use the udi's for a gyro crust (instead of pita, i cut it in half and load it up and fold it)  also, i am craving a calzone - there has got to be a way to fold that sucker to fake a calzone crust....

 

i don't like it 'tapioca-y' either.  

 

lauratx - what was the brand you found at kroger (it's not at mine - boo!) that you liked?  i was going to request it at mine (and then hate it LOLZ probably)   ^_^

The brand at Kroger was Russo's gluten-free pizza.  Here is their product page: http://nypizzeria.com/retail.php  So So So Sooo good!  Lots of fat, but hey, its pizza and it tastes good. LOL
