Satisfying The Pizza Eaters In My House

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to negotiate with my husband and kids over acceptable alternatives. I'm already on Amazon, ordering some gluten free play dough type stuff to replace some playdough that got given to the kids as a Christmas gift.

 

Anyway, my hubby and kids really like pizza and I'm trying to negotiate with them to find an acceptable alternative that doesn't put my health at risk. I'm gluten-free/DF, but they can all have dairy. I was thinking that maybe a chebe crust pizza made with regular cheese would help satisfy their pizza cravings. I'm not concerned with dairy cross contamination, as I don't have an actual allergy to it, it just tends to exacerbate my sinus problems, so I avoid it.

 

Anybody have a pizza recommendation that will satisfy gluten eaters?

We use Bob's Red mill Mix. It isn't bad but I add extra baking powder, flax meal, eggs, salt and garlic to give it a bit... more flavour and substance.  I've done a few crusts from scratch too and they work out fine - just take a bit more time.

 

The kids like tortilla pizzas too, or just sauce and cheese on toast is a quick lunch.

 

I tend to use daiya cheese substitute and nutritional yeast instead of cheese because my oldest son and I do better without dairy.

I would love this too! I miss pizza...really good pizza. I've done the chebe and Bob's Red Mill and they turned out fine...but not great. I'd love to be able to make my family pizza that resembles something we'd get at a pizza place.

Frushcetta/ sabatasso are one in the same plus it is listed under another name but all the samegf pizza with a different name label... They are frozen & even the gluten eaters like it. We add veggie toppings....it does have cheese tho... Bold is another popular one in my area....

For making a homemade pizza we love Carol Fenster recipe then add whatever......

I like the taste and texture of the Pamela's pizza crust mix (the specific one for pizza in the green bag- making pizza with the bread mix didn't turn out as well). But, it has to be kneaded, rise, etc, so it takes a couple of hours to make it. So, I've also been looking for an equally tasty crust that takes less time. Bob's didn't go over well. I recently tried a GallaLeo kit from Earth Fare- save your money and don't try that one- the crust had what I can only describe as a sandy texture and the included sauce was really sweet, I think to counteract the crust. There's a pre-made crust at Publix that's adequate- it's a little rubbery but good in a pinch. I think the brand is Maria's or Mama's (I can't find it online- but it's in a clear package with a dark green and red label). They also have one in a box, but it's bland and crumbly. I have some pre-made Udi's in the freezer that I need to try. I've also contemplated making the Pamela's one and freezing it for when I need it- it might work :)

I made hubby and the kids pizza with regular dairy cheese on gluten free Chebe crust tonight. They were all very pleased with it and it was nice to be able to give my baby kisses without worrying that she had gluten all over her face.

Have you tried a cauliflower pizza crust?  I don't know how little ones would like it but my adult major gluten eating son was wowed by it.  My friends 8 yr old ate some and had no idea it was cauliflower crust.
