I've never had them--only seen them at the store--but Enjoy Life has frozen gluten-free bagels.

We tried these and didn't care for them . . . I'm sure covered with sauce and cheese and pepperoni they would be a LOT better!! :P

We really like the Glutino bagels!!!

That reminds my of one of my first gluten-free attempts last year. Bagels...they ended up in the trash ;)

The taste was ok, I just didn't have the technique down. Anyway, you might google the box above for lots of comments. I remember english muffin mini pizzas, so quick/chewy and delish! :P

This recipe sounds good if you want to make your own:

I absolutely love Joan's bagels and english muffins. We use the english muffins for buns and I would assume they'd make great pizzas. The bagels are out of this world (even my gluten eating friends and family think so too). Shipping is rather expensive so I do a bulk order every few months.

I just tried Trader Joe's English Muffins Gluten/Dairy free.They are VERY good but as I'm finding they HAVE to be toasted which you do with English muffins anyways.I've been making sandwiches with them as they are pretty good sized....I was so happy to find these!!!!

I've made bagels numerous times using the Pamela's bread mix. The recipe or the bagels is right on the bag. I foud they were very good toasted for breakfast wth a topping and I made "bagel pizzas" all the time. The recipe was fairly easy- but ther were several steps and the dough had to rise - so make sure to allow enough time! :D

Same for me. They were the closest to "real" bagels I'd had in many years!

That said... I'm goin' over to check out Joan's... as today is the 8th!!!

be careful, a lot of the gluten free bagels out there taste like gritty dirt! no lie!

my favorite bagels are Glutino... they are crusty outside and soft inside just like a real bagel should be! as for english muffins, i've tried Joan's (which are very yummy, but VERY high in fat and calories). the best english muffins i've tried are Foods by George.... they are a taller muffin, but you can split it in half and toast it and put pizza toppings on it for sure... they are VERY light and soft and airy... truly delicious. i enjoy them most toasted with some peanut butter :-)

i've shared both glutino bagels and foods by george english muffins with non-celiac friends and they liked both but LOVED the english muffins :-)

All of the gluten-free english muffins and bagels have about the same amount of fat and calories. Joan's english muffins have fewer calories than Foods by George. Joan's does have 1.5 grams more fat but when you're in the 3.5-5g range I personally don't consider it much.

sorry, i was going off of memory on the Joan's product since i haven't had them in awhile. the foods by george english muffins are much larger and i'd find it hard to believe that they have much more calories. anyway, i was just offering my personal opinion on the products...

You're welcome. I love it when someone gives me a TNT recipe that I don't have to mess with until I get it right. So I'm happy to share the good ones with others.

About 4 months ago I had this exact same craving. Joan's great bakes came to the rescue! English muffin pizzas and bagels?! My celiac dreams have been answered!

Only drawback is Joan's bagels cook in oven. . by the time my oven heats up and the bagel cooks, I'm looking at a 1/2 hour breakfast, which just isn't practical given my love of the snooze-button!! -- great on weekends, though!

i just tried food from george's english muffins...so good for egg sandwiches! I haven't tried to make pizzas yet with them but i think it will be a success

also, the against the grain sun dried basil and tomato bagels are fantastic.

things like this make me so happy :) i love good gluten free carbs
