Kinnikinick Pizza Crusts

Recommended Posts

Since I can't eat cheese, I have made my pizza crusts foccacia style. I put olive oil, oregano, salt, pepper, hot peppers, etc, on top, then bake. I then cut them up and dip them in olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Oh, great idea!!

Viola, glad you like the cinnamon/sugar idea....I may make that tonight. Ended up trying chocolate chip cookies again last night - tasted good, baked not like a cookie should :unsure:

I LOVE Chebe crusts- yummm! Vydor Scope- have you tried Namaste pizza crust? Very similar to Chebe taste wise (but it's not pre-made so you need to do a little mixing- easy enough) and I am pretty sure it is egg-free. It's goooood! Really good.

tried a couple fo mixes, dont remember which ones.. not massivly impressed with any.

Namaste is another line of really good products. I did not care for their cookie mix, but I don't know if it was the olive oil I used instead of vegtable. It can give a strong taste. Their cakes are AWESOME and they don't have egg in the mix, so you can use egg substitute. They are casein free, gluten free, egg free, and soy free!

Nini-I made the cheese sticks the other night and they were AMAZING. definitely made my night. Before all the "big" chains came out with them, there was a chain that sold them (and still does) called Gumby's. Many are in college towns (like PSU!). I cannot tell you how much money I spent on those, esp late nights after going out! Pokey sticks are the best....these at least give me the idea that I am still young, cool, in college, and not Celiac (wait, I'm out of college, work long hours, and a very sensitive Celiac.....haha!) :D

What a great thread! Thanks for all the great ideas. You know what my problem is.....I have one Kinnikinnick pizza crust left in the freezer. Did you hear me? ONE crust I've been saving until I just couldn't wait longer. (Nearest Wild Oats quit carrying them and haven't placed an order). So, here I am with one crust and so many ideas. I may have to cut it in 1/8's and try them all :unsure:

Here's a different idea for pizza>

1 gluten-free crust

1 can gluten-free mushroom soup (if thin it may need a tad of thickener added)

1 box frozen spinach ( chopped & drained very well)I squeese mine by hand

garlic powder to your liking.

spread the mushroom soup on the crust,put spinach on top of mushroom soup

then sprinle with garlic or any of your favorite spices.

bake as usual.

enjoy!

I live on their stuff. I'm in the same city as they are so I can get all of their products. The pizza crusts are a lifesaver and we have cobbled together many a meal basedon them. The oreos are so good, the first time I had one I cried, thinking I was doing something I oughtn't. I adore their donuts. This company had changed my life for the better. I applaud them heartily.

(But I still hate all Celiac safe "bread" - even theirs).

I've never tried these oreo's you guys' speak of, though I don't know if I can eat them. I've had their gingerbread cookies (I don't know if they ship them or not) which taste like normal cookies I think. Their lemon meringue pie is good too. I don't like their bread though, I find it overly sweet. But I'm heading there tomorrow so I gotta check out these oreos.

I got the buns....I think they were basically like the Engish muffins. Both are great! This is unusual with gluten-free bread products, but both the buns and muffins are THICK....and have a soft nice quality. I always toast the English muffin (split in half--so big I can only eat a half at a time), but I thawed the bun and made a hamburger and it was quite good....my only complaint was that it was actually too thick for me!

I ordered the pizza crusts but haven't tried them yet. I'm glad to hear they're good! :P

I also thought the hamburger buns were too thick, but very good. I would like them better

if they made 6 buns instead of 4 and then I think they would be perfect. I thought I died

and went to heaven. We go camping and I was wondering how long would they keep it

not kept frozen? We don't have a freezer in our Popup Camper.

Thanks mamaw! I love this idea and my dd loves spinach!! I'll have have to try it if I can find a safe mushroom soup.

Hey Vincent ~ I can't use the premade crusts b/c of egg and rice but I found one that is really easy to make. It's at Carol Fenster's site... http://www.savorypalate.com I use the oil/water/bp as the egg replacer. Your son would probably love it. I just make a bunch at one time, bake them and then freeze them.

SPINACH PIZZA

I also sometimes put real bacon bits on top of the spinach . I know others who

put cooked burger on it but I like the bacon bits better . Of course the vegan would not use any....

Just another idea.

I went there today and bought bagels, K-toos, a bunch of other stuff, but the thing I was looking forward to the most was a pie. I can't wait to try it. I love this store. The K-toos are awesome and I don't normally have a sweet tooth.

Nini-

I just had the best dinner, thanks to you! I finally tried your garlic cheese bread with the pizza crusts! Yummy!!! I had white rice tinkyada spaghetti with spag. sauce, the garlic cheese bread, and broccoli! Ohhh...I'm craving the leftovers that I put in the fridge for my hubby!! I can't believe how good the crust turned out. Thank you for posting that picky-eater-friendly recipe! I'm gonna have to order more pizza crusts!!! (Kinnikinnick should owe you money! :) )

Kinnikinnick Order Question:

I know that they ship frozen. Do you have to be home to receive the shipment or is it ok on your doorstep for a few hours? They're shipped frozen, but what is the shipping, packing process? Thanks!

For those of you who saw my dilemna of only one crust....I debated and debated and finally used it for a pepperoni pizza, with spinach and mushrooms. I've been putting spinach on my pizza for years ever since eating a gourmet pizza with spinach on it. Love the stuff!

In addition to spinach, mushrooms, and bacon, for those who can have dairy, try a different cheese, such as feta and add some fresh sliced tomatoes before baking. YUMMMM!

I haven't seen them yet... but I also haven't been back to the health food store yet. It's such a pain to go to - but a Whole Foods is opening not too far away in a week - so I can't wait to go there! Are those meals in the frozen section? I'll have to remember to look for them. Thanks for the suggestion!

yep they are in the freezer, Ian's does make a line of foods with gluten so just make sure you get the ones with the Allergen Free/Gluten free labeling on the front of the box.
