Just A Warning Concerning gluten-free Pizza

Recommended Posts

Well, if you like Schar's then you should love the Venice Bakery ones.

I tried the Schar's, and while they are edible, they don't come close to these.

Of course that is all in my opinion of course.

Now if you like a thick, chewy crust,......these are not for you.

Is this something local? Does it have egg? I can't have egg. Prior to that I did the Ener-G, but... I prefer to bake those with just some olive oil then top them with hummus, onions, tomatoes and Kalamata olives. It is good that way. Not so good as pizza.

According to this link it does not have egg, nor some other things.

I think they are in California. I ordered them online myself, and they shipped them to my door. I found a coupon code that gave me 10% off, and bought the larger quantity. That's why I was very glad that I liked them!

Ended up being right at $6.50 per 12" crust. Still crazy high, I know.

I agree that Amy's is terrible. I was so excited to find it in the freezer section, went home and cooked it up... Nasty! I don't like to waste but it went in the trash. Ugh

Whole Foods frozen gluten free pizza crust is quite good, although it is also quite expensive.


Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.

Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.

Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)

Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

That's awesome! I guess the longer I've been doing this, the more I've forgotten how "great" the gluten stuff was and I've adapted my taste buds to certain things. :rolleyes: I am hoping one day soon to get a stand mixer, though, so I'm sure I'll end up just as picky once I actually start making my own bread. smile.gif

Hi!  thanks for this discussion.  I'm just starting my gluten-free journey and this is helpful. 

In addition to the pizza crust info, this thread also gave me... one more excuse to buy a stand mixer.  However, I put that in the back of my mind and went looking for publix coupons for UDI crusts.  I went to the first hit on the list, and instead of getting the UDI page I got this:  http://www.addictedtosaving.com/kitchenaid-artisan-5-qt-stand-mixer/#comment-612345

It is an opportunity to get "the major name brand stand mixer" for lots and lots and lots of dollars off.  I decided it was a message from ... I don't know - the shopping gods or something and bought one.  Then I came back to this thread... and here's poor heatherjane... wanting a mixer... So I decided to share this info for the good of my fellow gluten-free bakers.  The deal is only good until "the major western gift giving holiday of 2013"  so... hope it helps.

Back when I still thought I could eat things with corn and rice, I opted against trying Amy's because while the pizza may be gluten free the facility it is made in is not.

After trying all of the premade ones, I found Namaste crust mix. It says it makes two 14-inch crusts but I make 5 or 6 smaller ones, bake them off, and then freeze the ones I don't use. It's delicious... light and airy, which the premade crusts are not. I live in the middle of nowhere and there are very few gluten-free offerings here.
