Pizza Crust?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a good recipe for pizza crust? Possibly with some cornmeal?? I've tried a few mixes and a pre-made frozen crust that were mostly from rice flour and the texture always turns out really mushy . . .

Thanks! :D

Hey Lisa :)

Are you near a whole foods, by chance? They have a store-brand one that I love and use for everything.

Sorry, I don't have any other good suggestions. There are some good bakers on here, though. I'm sure they'll help ya out. Or do a "search" for pizza on here, and look in the "recipes" section, too.

Have you tried Bette Hagman's "Easy Pizza" recipe? It's our favorite. Never mushy, easy to do thicker or thinner crust, great with even moist toppings...

Thanks guys! I found the recipe and will definitely try it. And I also found a Whole Foods store not too far away from me - I will have to get some of that pizza crust too. I never ate pizza much before I was gluten-free, but now I am really craving it!! haha - funny how that works :lol:

I don't have a recipe - I use Kinnikinnick's frozen pizza crusts. I think they're absolutely amazing.

Hi there, I'm Kellie and this is my first post.

My 6yo dd was just dx with celiac and I sure made her smile

last Friday night. Friday night has always been our family

go-out-and-have pizza night. And she was so upset that this

may have to end. BUT, I discovered a homemade crust she

really likes. I took the Gluten Free Panty's French Bread and

Pizza mix and made the dough. Then I par-baked (half the time)

it on a 9 x 13 in cookie sheet. We then went to our local pizza

haunt, and they topped it with sauce and cheese. She was

DEE-lited to say the least.

The nice thing is that this way they did not have to mess

with rolling out the dough and risk cross contamination.

They popped it out of my baking pan and onto a

clean serving dish.

I have to say, I felt like a hero... at least for 5 minutes :D

We then went to our local pizza

haunt, and they topped it with sauce and cheese.

Oh, I meant to say that after they topped off the

pizza, they then baked it for an additional 10 minutes or so.


My mom was dx'd Celiac in her 80's after a life time of stomach troubles. I am fine however.

Kellie-

Be SUPER careful with doing things like that. There is flour all over in a pizza place. Also the toppings are at a huge risk for cross contamination. The workers dip into the toppings and then onto the gluteny crust. They could also be contamined with flour that is hanging in the air.

If you are going to do that on a regular basis, I would sit down with the manager of the place and talk seriously about cross contamination. Maybe they can make sure they clean an area for her pizza and use some freshly opened toppings for her. I would really hate to see your little one getting sick.

Good luck!
