I Tried Glutino Spinach And Feta Cheese Pizza

Recommended Posts

I know, I shouldn't really be eating any starches, but figure it's okay once on a while. I just bought a couple of personal size pizzas, now that my health food store opened a new gluten-free section. I seem okay with goats milk occasionally, so feta cheese should be fine now and then.

Anyway, I was excited about having one tonight, as I haven't tried pizza in a year. I was very disappointed, I thought it was pretty gross. And it wasn't the toppings, but the crust I hated.

Next time I feel like a treat I'll try Amy's pizza, they have those as well.

My grocery store (Zehr's) just started having a whole gluten-free section as well! With different brands of rice pasta (including Tinkyada and Schaer), and lots of other stuff. I have to stop myself from going there, as I shouldn't really eat any of it!

I did try some Schaer waffles and snack bars, and was disappointed (especially because Nini seems to love their stuff), I hated the aftertaste and wasn't impressed. Oh well, maybe it's God's way of stopping me from eating the stuff, as it will give me a stomach ache, anyway. <_<

:( sad that you had a bad experience. I actually quite like the spinach and feta pizza...although i added lots of toppings to mine. the crust is kind of weird...a little too starchy i think. do you ever make your own pizza crusts? i have found that to be the best way to have a pizza!

www.eatingglutenfree.com i think has a pizza crust recipe...if not, search GFBetsy's posts...she's the one who gave me the reicpe I use. :)

Well, you see, I am intolerant to all grains, including rice, and potatoes (no rice flour) and legumes (bean flour), and really, the only starch I can sort of tolerate occasionally is light buckwheat flour (the dark gives me a stomach ache). Tomatoes give me a migraine. Meaning, really, I better not even go there, I might like it too much. It would be too great a temptation! :rolleyes:

um, I've only tried the Scharr pastas, haven't tried any waffles or snack bars by them??! So they aren't good? LOL

I thought the Glutino pizza was ok, not my favorite, and you are right, it does have an odd aftertaste, but I was so hungry when I had it, that it didn't matter.

I'm working on perfecting a pizza recipe with Orgran all purpose self raising flour... so far my first two attempts have been really good, but still lacking in just the right flavor/texture combo... I'll let you know when I get it perfected.

Yes, the Schär pasta is great, no doubt about that. But their waffles have that odd, greasy aftertaste (you know it must be hydrogenated fat, which is extremely unhealthy for you) that I just hate. Good thing, if I'd eat them all the time it would undoubtedly make me sick.

And yes, that's (as above) is how you spell it, as it's a Germany company based in Italy :blink: (yes, that's weird, but true). Sorry, I am very particular about those spellings (anal is what my kids call it). :rolleyes:

As a side note, I recently tried Amy's Pizza and I really liked it (mind you I haven't had pizza in years). My husband added some vegetables and tuna and it was a really nice treat. I didn't even feel the starch-bloat afterwards! Perhaps if I had eaten more, I would have.....

I kept thinking how good it even 2 days later. : ) Maybe a better choice than Glutino.

Pizza is a must in my boring diet. I don't like a lot of gluten free breads and crusts either but I found a great tortilla called Healthy Hemp tortillas from French Meadow bakery located in Minnesota. They do have a web site that you can order these. The ingredients in these are mostly seeds. Organic sunflower, flaxseed, pumpkin seed, hemp flour amaranth ect. Its real high in fiber and very low in carbs.

I don't use tomato. I whiz up olive oil and basil with a little Parmesan in my Cuisinart. Spread that down then some pine nuts, olives, a little cooked spinach and goat cheese. Its just fabulous. A very good for you.

Just a suggestion and keep trying I know when I find something that agrees with me and it has flavor like that I get all excited.

I was starved wen I ate my glutino pizza too but I thought it was as good as any of Amy's.... I doctored it up alot. I do like the Schar crackers that are supposed to be like a cross between a ritz &and a saltine. And I love their hazelnut bar sorta like a kit kat.......

I had a pizza crust buried in my freezer for about a year. I made it & it was really good. It was from Sherrie's specialities , it had cheese in the crust.. It was one of the better pre-made ones I've had. Just thinking about it now I bet it would have been terrific had I ate it within a month!!!!!I think her company use dto be called Belo Foods.....Anyway I think I will order af ew more from her to have on hand when I don't have time to make one ......

I tried Glutino bread once and I couldn't get past one bite. Something about the taste and texture just didn't jive.

Thanks, girls. In the end it comes down to individual taste buds I guess.

Gail, thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, I am intolerant to all herbs and spices, most seeds and oils, olives, shouldn't really eat spinach.........all due to them being high in salicylates. I would love eating the pizza you suggested, but I wouldn't love being on codeine the next day for horrific, screaming muscle pain. :ph34r:

You are really on a limited diet, and you are a strong person to be able to stick with it.... I feel blessed that I can eat so many things & I feel for those of you who are very limited. But I truly give you all lots of credit.
