tried this tonight - it was easy and i didn't hate it (although i spread it thinner than the package says and probably baked it longer)  i had seconds.  it's a little 'sweeter' than i anticipated but i would try it again <ok, y'all i am sooo gonna play with it lolz it's *dough* already made)   it contains soy and egg, so i wouldn't eat it every day (soy hates me) but it sure was easy.  

 

anybody else try it?  what'dya think?

Better than the premade ones you buy in the freezer section.  Easy to play with as well.  I liked it.

 

Yes, expensive but if you're looking for coupons Pillsbury has $1 off one tub on their website. And coupons dot com has $0.75 off coupons on their page.

I used it to make these:

I liked how easy they were to roll out - not sticky like most gluten-free dough. I would use them again for appetizers. They were very chewy. My older son thought you could use it to make a sweet version of the pizza rolls.

Loved the convenience of it...but I was disappointed because I thought it was too sweet! I need to try it in different recipes, not just for making pizza.

I tried it and didn't think it was too bad. But this was my 1st time trying gluten free pizza. It was a little chewy and I would make it thinner next time. But it would take care of a pizza craving. It was convient and very easy to make that's what I like about it.

I've not seen it yet... but I'm a huge fan of Namaste pizza crust mix. All it needs is water and a splash of olive oil. Rather than two huge crusts, I make 4 to 6 smaller crusts... bake them off... top one and freeze the rest. They are delicious!

I picked it up and even had it in my shopping cart and then put it back....I am so hesitant to try new things.  So many of the substitutes I really don't care for. I was a person who practically lived on bread my whole young life,  not until the last 10 years have I had real problems.  So it is taking some getting used to.  But I haven't had a piece of pizza since going gluten free and I sure do miss it.   But it is the crust I probably miss most.  I might try it.....

after trying soooooooooo many different recipes (and now i want to try the namaste, too, but it is not easily found in my hick town lolz) this was at least easy and co-operative dough.  i have different things in mind for it next time i buy it.  the crust isn't crumbly or gritty or rubbery and you can't beat the 'plop it out of the container, spread on pan with greased hands, pop in oven' part.  lolz - i have visions of my failed pizza doughs, the worst one was rolling *extremely sticky* dough between 2 pieces of plastic wrap.  dough everywhere, stuck to everything, and plastic wrap and i were never friends to begin with.  at least my husband got a good laugh out of it, while he untangled me and tried to salvage said dough <which turned out terrible, anyway.  at least if i'm going to have mediocre pizza, i don't have to make a super-human effort!  LOLZ  :lol:

I think I will have to get some........I think that was another one of my hesitations,  I have heard similar horror stories about trying to roll out gluten free pizza dough. So the fact it is easy to handle, that is a plus.  I don't mind if it is a little sweet,  well I will just have to give it a try,  because if I like it,   I think it will give me some new recipe ideas.  One of the hardest things for me is trying to accumulate a variety of tasty gluten free tried and true dishes.   It is kind of hit and miss at this point.

have you been on the cooking & baking forum - lots of ideas and recipes there.   if you have any sort of 'comfort food' you would like to make gluten free, they can help with substitutions and whatnot :)

I have tried it, twice already :)  It is better than any of the frozen crusts.  It is a bit sweet, but not overly sweet-however I can see this being good for a dessert pizza or another sweet use.  It spreads fairly easy and doesn't stick.  I would let it sit out a few minutes it makes it even easier to pat out into the pan.  I baked it a little longer than it said, which helped it not be as chewy as the first time I prepared it.  I have TMJ (jaw pain) problems so I am super sensitive to anything chewy, though.

 

I hope this stays on the market, I think it is going to be a permanent part of my recipe rotation.  With classico pizza sauce, mozzarella, a few pepperoni, and as many mushrooms as I can fit on top.  In fact, I think the sweetness of the dough makes it go REALLY well with classico sauce.  May be just me, though. :)

i have used it for the second time, now, made it super-duper thin and my sauce a little less sweet - it wanted to stick to the pan a little in the middle, so next time i'm gonna oil the living sh!t out of it - but i have been having a slice here and there for days and no adverse reaction (not even from the soy, i am pleasantly surprised!)  i think my next one will be a white pizza  (shout out to shadow!   lolz)

    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
    • Garden of Life brand Dr. Formulated Organic Fiber. It's certified gluten free. Also free of psyllium husk, dairy and soy. Also found that just simply increasing fiber intake works wonders. Perhaps try skipping a protein for at least one meal and fill up on veggies and fruits.
    • When you're looking for answers the negative endoscopy may seem like bad news in a funny way, it did for me when the doctor told me, but really as CL said it's good.  Keep working with your doctors.  From what you've said before gluten could still be the problem.  Now you've eliminated celiac you can try removing it from your diet, but it's important that you do it safely. You don't want to cause a problem while trying to fix one. Most people get a lot of B vitamins in particular from gluten foods. So if you make a change to your diet do it with your mom, ideally involve your doctor or a dietician and keep a diary of your symptoms too, sometimes called a food journal. You may still have found your answer, don't panic and don't lose heart. Best of luck Matt 
    • BoliviaB, DH rash can occur in Celiac's who reindtroduce wheat/gluten after a break from gluten. However I want to go/see that the parasite route has also been exhausted. The fever's (for most Celiac's anyway) are not typically but low grade inflammation is. I had annual bronchitis issues and ear aches that went away after stopping gluten. You did not say if your were a native Bolivian or not but if you are you  probably know about Chagas disease carried by the Kissing Bug. A blood test will confirm that the Chagas parasite's were killed with your AB's round. Though many AB's rounds can be as long as 2 months . . . not just two weeks for complete control. I wonder if you have Chagas (possibly) and it is causing you colon problems.  GI problems can be a sign of advanced Chagas complications. If you are having your blood drawn again it should be (re)checked. In the US (since it is not endemic) as it is in Bolivia people typically find out if they have it (Chagas) by giving blood. Chagas is considered a Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) in the US but in Bolivia it should be ruled out as a possible cause of your fever(s) and GI problems. https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/chagas/disease.html quoting "a dilated esophagus or colon, leading to difficulties with eating or passing stool" can be a sign of chagas. if you hadn't mentioned parasites in your regimen I might not of mentioned it.  And in the UK if they didn't know your country of origin or your home country they might not of think to ask about it since it is a Neglected Tropical Disease and therefore had no reason to suspect Chagas to test your blood for it. I was only aware of it because it has begun to show up in Texas and CNN run an article about it a couple of years ago. http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/24/health/kissing-bugs-chagas-disease/index.html  If you have an outdoor dog --- dog's can also contract Chagase disease from the bite of the Kissing Bug much like in the US dog's can get heart worm from a mosquito bite. The CDC (the US health agency) says most people are assymptomatic but GI problems can be a severe sign of undiagnosed Chagas in about 30% of the population. quoting again "In people who have suppressed immune systems (for example, due to AIDS or chemotherapy), Chagas disease can reactivate with parasites found in the circulating blood. This occurrence can potentially cause severe disease." . . (NCGS and/or undiagnosed Celiac Disease (my words) could certaintly complicate someone's response to the Chagas parasite). This might be higher in Bolivia. . . and probably is since Chagas is endemic to Bolivia. The good news a blood test can help you find out if undidangosed Celiac or undiagnosed Chagas is causing your problems or if it is a complicated mix of the two. **** this is not medical advice but it explains your fevers' better than Celiac (usuallY) but the rash defiantly could be a DH reaction to gluten. I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God, ETA: Here is the FAQ link from the CDC on Blood Screening for Chagas disease in the US.  https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/chagas/gen_info/screening.html Again I hope this helpful.
