Gluten Free Pizza
0

9 posts in this topic

I have a [school] club event tonight, and we're having pizza, but I'm gluten free, so I can't eat it, so I was just planning on bringing my own so I won't feel completely left out, or super tempted to eat the pizza. 

Frozen pizza is obviously the easiest, so I was thinking about maybe getting that. I tried the Glutino brand crusts once, and they're really nasty...are the premade pizzas any better? Or other brands that are good?

 

Thanks!

If you can find it, Against The Grain makes a very good premade pizza and also a plain pizza crust. I find it at a natural foods market. I think I've seen a premade pizza of theirs at Whole Foods...but can't be sure.

Is is a thick or a thin crust? I ask because I like thicker crusts. But thanks for the suggestion! I really appreciate it!

 

I don't know if you're familiar with Wegmans, but it's a very large, NY-founded grocery store that carries everything...they've got a HUGE gluten free section, including frozen items! They also have sections dedicated to Asian foods and other ethnic foods. It's awesome! I know this is getting to be sort of a rant...but where I grew up/am from, we have a Wegmans (and thankfully there's one about 10 minutes from where I go to school as well), and tons of people who go to my school never knew the joy of Wegmans until coming here...and they always wonder what the big deal about it is...until they go! LOL.

It's sort of in the middle. The texture and taste are very different than others.

How so?

It's flaky and has more flavor. I don't want to say "like their French bread" but if you've had it you'll recognize it. It's just different. Not soggy.

Hmm...I will definitely have to try it. I looked for it at the store tonight and didn't see it even though the site said it was there...so I just ended up making my own using the Wegmans gluten free baking mix which is AWESOME stuff!

I like thin, crunchy crusts. I actually figured out you can make one using most gluten-free pizza dough recipes by putting in less liquid. Duh!

I'm really not a fan of thin crusts...I don't like them super thick though, I mean, not like deep dish or anything, but a bit bigger. Probably because I don't actually like crust. Before going gluten-free, I would always tear the pizza off across the crust and give it to one of my siblings. Either that or only eat the soft, more doughy inside of the crust and leave the harder, crispier outside.

 

What I've found to be the easiest way to bake gluten free is to use the Wegmans gluten free baking mix. In most recipes, you can just use it just like regular wheat flour, the same amount and everything, just a straight substitute. 

 

Here's the ingredient list as per the Wegmans website:

 

Potato Starch, Cornstarch, Brown Rice Flour, Tapioca Starch, Sorghum Flour, Whole Grain Corn Flour, Evaporated Cane Syrup, Baking Powder (Cornstarch, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Aluminum Phosphate, Calcium Sulfate, Monocalcium Phosphate), Sea Salt, Xanthan Gum, Soy Flour. 

 

So far with it, I've made many things: Scones, cookies, pancakes, curry, and now, pizza. It's so ridiculously easy to use, even when using a "regular" recipe that calls for "regular" flour...and the taste and texture is spot on! It is a bit more, grainy I guess I would say than wheat flour, but other than that, it's just about perfect.

    • I do have a referral to another GI at one of the top hospitals in North Carolina. I'm just waiting on the call to schedule an appointment. 
    • OK, that's good news, not the milk in the cabinet, that you've not cut gluten! Stick with it and wait for the test results. If they're positive then it will be another endoscopy, but this time with the biopsies. If negative, don't despair. Your GP may still refer you but if not you can try the gluten free diet for yourself. Keep a food diary and follow all the instructions here in the newbie thread and establish for yourself if it's the problem. If it is, don't stress overmuch about a diagnosis. I tested negative but gluten is a big problem for me and many others. The good news is the diet worked for me and it may still for you. In the meantime, try and eat as well as possible and take a good quality B vitamin and multi vitamin to try and boost those levels. Good luck!
    • No I havent cut out any gluten. I cut out stuff I knew hurt me. Like watermelon. Which sucks because I LOVE watermelon.  There are days that I cant even get words out. I can think a sentence and just cant get it out. I constantly stumble and feel drunk in my head. I'm hoping these daily shots of B12 I'm getting will start to help some.  Yesterday I put the milk in the cabinet    
    • Hello, I am new to the glutten-free diet FOR ABOUT 6 WEEKS because I am trying to find a way to clear up my seborrheic dermatitis that I have since I was a teenager. Recently, it is all over my face as well, usually after light sun exposure. The dandruff is annoying and I was checking to see if it because of gluten. I really do not notice any difference with my skin. It has not helped. Should I give it more time? Is 6 weeks enough time to start seeing results? I don't want to be on any medicines. Shampoo's help, but not with my face. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,    
    • Hello and welcome Its good that your doctor has ordered the celiac test, not sure why your GI didn't, as you say perhaps he was presupposing IBS... You mention cutting out food, you haven't tried cutting gluten yet have you? That can throw the results of any testing. You are best to stay on it for now at least, once testing is done it would be worth trying the gluten-free diet regardless of results. Dont lose heart, be persistent, get those answers and best of luck!
