While in Publix I discovered AGAINST THE GRAIN gourmet pizza for $9.99. Rather pricey I thought but it was a full size small pizza so I took the plunge n bought it for my DD. the crust was kinda thick n it was scattered with about 9-10 pepperoni slices. It looked pretty good, decent amt of cheese.

VERDICT: has a weird taste! Thought it was the cheese but DD said no its the crust. She took 1 bite n did not like it. Damn! I can tolerate it so I'll eat it 2mrw. Can't let $10 go to waste!

I understand the not letting it go to waste thing, I am the same way.  I recently had to throw away some Udi's chocolate chia muffins because they were horrible, even my husband wouldn't eat them and he will eat things like that usually.  Against the grain is grain free and does have kind of an earthy taste to it.  I like it, but I can see how a kid would turn their nose up at it.  Mellow Mushroom uses their crusts, FYI.  But maybe with more toppings piled on, the crust wouldn't shine through as much.

I haven't tried Against The Grain pizza, but I eat their rosemary baguettes all the time. I did not like them at first, but I love them now (but only toasted). They are great when sliced lengthwise and broiled with cheddar cheese on top. Or when sliced into little rounds and toasted, then topped with fresh basil, tomato, mozzarella, and balsamic vinegar.

Have you tried the Schar shelf-stable pizza crusts? They come two per box and cost about $8. I've only found them in a few places, though, which is probably good because I'd eat them way too often if I could find them locally. They are pre-cooked, so all you have to do it throw on some sauce and whatever toppings you want, then bake for about ten minutes just to melt the cheese. It's fairly cost-effective, as gluten-free pizzas go. The taste and consistency are great.

greenbeenie we tried shar a few yrs ago. Kids did not like it at all. Unless they'v improved it, not gonna retry it.  My DS will eat Udi's pizza crust, and DD used to but she won't anymore.

Against the Grain and Schar use a lot of tapioca.  It may be that you don't like that?  I think Udi's is more of a rice based?

i use udi's and am resigned to the fact that i will *never* find the perfect (nj substitute) pizza :(  but i also use the udi's for a gyro crust (instead of pita, i cut it in half and load it up and fold it)  also, i am craving a calzone - there has got to be a way to fold that sucker to fake a calzone crust....

 

i don't like it 'tapioca-y' either.  

 

lauratx - what was the brand you found at kroger (it's not at mine - boo!) that you liked?  i was going to request it at mine (and then hate it LOLZ probably)   ^_^

Against the Grain is the only pizza that my kids will touch.  We used to eat "fancy" pizzas pre-DX, though.  So they weren't raised on delivery pizzas with pepperoni.

    • I myself also have EOE and Celiac. Before my diagnoses I was getting bread and meat stuck in my esophogus. It wouldn’t pass. It got so bad when I ate a ribeye. It sat in the esophogus for 4 hours. Eventually I was able to vomit it up. It was followed by blood. I then went for a biopsy a month later and was diagnosed. I cut out most of the gluten out of my diet. But I also had to go see an allergy doctor and I have a soy and nut allergy. He explained that the restriction in the esophogus is a delayed reaction to either the soy, gluten, or nuts. So I try to avoid those foods as much as possible. I carry an epi pen with me when I go out to eat. 
    • My biopsy showed Villi damage in the small intestine. It was followed up with blood work. My GI was frustrated with me when I started questioning her. She couldn’t even explain the results to me. She just circled positive and left me hanging. Can anybody explain how my results look? Am I definitely positive?

    • My daughter was diagnosed with celiac in 2014.    She never had a problem with gluten, and she is still a silent celiac.  But she was formally diagnosed with blood test and biopsy.   So, having no "problems" with gluten does not necessarily mean you are not celiac. I too, did not want to accept that my daughter has celiac, and we did a DNA testing, and found that she does carry one of the celiac genes.   So, if you do not want to accept celiac (or just very curious), you can get a dna test to see if you have one of these genes.   I was told that people without one of those celiac genes can not have celiac.
    • Download the app "Find Me gluten-free". It was a life saver when I went on a road trip. You can scan the area you are in for all of the nearest safe restaurants. I only go to the ones labeled "Celiac Friendly" , but that's up to you. Make sure you read the reviews and look at the ratings.  Majority of popular restaurants are not safe. I have found some local restaurants that I enjoy, so ask around in your community. I usually feel safe eating at Chipolte, because I watch them prepare everything right in front of me. If you tell them you have a gluten allergy they will wash their hands, change their gloves, change out the spoons for all of the ingredients you want, and get new bins of cheese. Just make sure you watch the whole time.  I have also eaten at Five Guys several times. Their fries are usually fried in peanut oil and do not have any coating, so if they change their gloves they should be okay. I usually get a hamburger on a lettuce wrap instead of a bun and ask them to keep it separate as they make it. Just like with Chipolte, you can watch everything they do. I always stand right by the counter and watch them make my food to look out for possible cross contamination.  They usually are very careful, but you do have to be very aware and make a decision based on how conscious the workers seem. Mellow Mushrooms also seem to be in many states. All of the locations I have been to have had gluten free options and dedicated kitchen space.  These are some of the restaurants that work for me, but it is different for every person and every circumstance. The most important thing is to be safe. Always ask a lot of questions. I have decided not to eat at places before because of the way a waiter has answered a question about their procedures to reduce cross contamination.  I will also skip out on eating out if the place is busy. No matter how careful they say they will be a kitchen is a busy place. If the restaurant is packed it's better to be safe and not risk it.  I hope you find some places to eat out that work for you, but the truth is a lot of the time you will just need to bring your own food or eat at home. Your health is more important than eating out.  It gets easier and you will learn what is safe and what works. Good luck!
    • Oh, I missed the part about Canadian candy.  Maybe you can buy some American candy on line - then you would know it's safe. Can you buy American candy on Amazon?  I buy everything on Amazon! Can you call the Hershey's in Canada and ask them?  Pick your favorite candy or two and research it?  Just a thought....
