What Kind Of Pizza Crust Do You Use?

30 posts in this topic

I've been using Gluten Free Pantry's pizza crust mix for months now. At first it was ok, you know, "This isn't too bad" thing. My kids eat it fine, although they mourn the loss of Pizza Hut and Papa John's. I've gotten some pretty good methods and techniques down pat, and I use a high quality pizza stone.

But the gluten-free Pantry mix has become immensely unsatisfying to me! It falls into a gluten-free category I call "Nasty Biscuits." Think dense, dry, and crumbly. I came up with this category the first time I actually choked on a piece of gluten-free bread. :o

Please tell me that there is a gluten-free pizza crust out there that is somewhat crispy/chewy???

Please, everyone post your favorites. Thanks in advance!

So far Kinnikinnick crusts are the only one that my family has liked. They are chewy, and they are a little sweet since they are made with sweet rice flour. To make mine crisp, I rub some olive oil on the pan before I pre-bake it. (I did not care for Gluten Free Pantry crust either.)

Please share any pizza tips you may have! :)

Before I had to go corn-free, I ate Kinnikinnick. I loooooooved those things.

Now we eat Carol Fenster's recipe for gluten-free pizza crusts. My husband likes this recipe way better than any gluten recipe and my sister exclaimed that it "tasted like real pizza!"

Plus it's super easy to make. Definitely a plus.

I use the recipe from Bette Hagman called Seasoned Pizza Crust. My family LOVES it, too. We also really like the Kinnickick crust, but we can't really afford it, especially w/ 6 ppl in this family!

We purchased some by the new company "Out of the Breadbox" last night at Vitamin Cottage and we'll be eating them sometime this week. We haven't really tried any store-bought crusts since DD was dxd. I miss pizza.

Hi Sarah,

I make my own as I couldn't eat the 'cardboard stuff' they pass off as pizza base!

.

These are quite easy to make and taste really nice, it means baking it from scratch,

no mixes allowed here.

We've experimented with a few different recipes and my favorite one so far has to be the pizza crust from Annalise Roberts book, Gluten Free Baking Classics. It's absolutely delicious.

And for sauce, I like the Don Pepino's, which you can find in any supermarket. It comes in a yellow can. I top it with fresh mozzarella and YUM!

I use Don Pepino's too and it makes ALL the difference in the final product!

I have tried Betty Hagman's and Carol Fenster's and like Carol Fenster's recipe the best by far. It is from her book Cooking Free. The one that uses yeast. I saw someone else posted that they use her recipe too. The one I use doesn't use milk powder though. The book doesn't look like much but the recipes are amazing! I also made crackers from her book and they tasted great! Way better then the ones that are in the store.

I can find it at any regular supermarket. Stop n' Shop, Pathmark, A&P, etc. I'm not positive that it is in the isle with all the other pasta sauces though. Next time I'm in the supermarket I'll take note what isle it's in and let you know. I kinda want to say it's where you find tomato paste or maybe closer to the pasta than the sauces...

Thank you all sooooo much for your replies! I have lots of options now. I think we'll be having a lot of pizza in the future, as I try these out. But hey, I'm one of those people that believe pizza is a health food. B)

I will probably try the from-scratch recipes first...

David, one question about your crust recipe...

Caster sugar-- this is very fine granulated sugar, right? Does it have a one-to-one substitution ratio with American "standard" granulated sugar? I'm betting it probably does, but just in case, I thought I should ask.

Thank you again, everyone. No one should have to settle for pizza with grody crust ;)

I forgot to say half of what I intended to :lol:

Jenny,

I think you've told me before that your family really loves the Kinnikinnick crust, but unfortunately I still haven't been able to find it anywhere... I think I'm going to have to order some to try! As for pizza tips, well I'm no expert, but there are a couple things that I personally have come to believe are "musts." One of them is a high quality pizza stone. IMO, it doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg, but you want one that is guaranteed to be 100% pure clay, otherwise it might have other filler-type junk in it. I actually really love Pampered Chef's line of stone bakeware. The other thing I've come to believe is that, the more tomatoey the sauce, the better. Whatever you do, don't use spaghetti sauce. :o There is something very strange that happens to sauce once it's labeled for spaghetti. I don't know quite what it is, but... Anyway, I like to start with PLAIN tomato sauce (found with the diced canned tomatoes) and work from there adding to it. Like you, I also use olive oil on the crust, and I'll also sprinkle a little garlic salt and an Italian season blend. I also bake the crust a bit before I start adding sauce and toppings.

I have to say, I've never heard of Don Pepino's sauce. It may be a regional thing, because we don't have any of those grocery stores listed, here in North Carolina! :huh: That is too bad! Is it really tomatoey?

I think I'm going to try out David's recipe for sauce, too.

I crave pizza often, and it has been really hard for not having Pizza Hut as it is my faovorite.

I have to say though that "Chebe" is a new close second as my favorite, and not just because it's gluten free and I have to. I make it all the time for my family and friends and they LOVE it!!!

You can order it at the Gluten free mall, and check out all their products at www.chebe.com. I also love their breadsticks, all purpose bread mix and cinnamon mix.

They are all wonderful and reasonably priced!

Hi Sarah,

Yes you are right it is 'standard American granulated sugar'.

.

Let me know what you think ?

The Bravo rest. chain is trying out Kinnickinnick pizza crust .They have a big gluten-free menu. I tried the pizza crust & to me it tasted way to sweet & more like a bisquick type crust . When I have pizza I want the real deal in the crust not bisquick.

Maybe I'm the only one who doesn't like K. pizza crust?

This is the crust I like, and I have to fight my gluten-eating kids to get a piece for myself:

gluten-free Pizza Crust

1 packet yeast (about 1 tablespoon)

3/4 cup buttermilk, room temperature (if casein-free, use rice milk with 1 tsp cider vinegar)

1/2 cup potato starch

3/4 cup cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoons baking powder

1 tablespoon xanthan gum

Hi!

This recipe was floating around on a thread on this forum a while back. My family loves it (even the gluten eating ones). But when in a hurry we have started using chebe as well and it is just as good. In order to make it a little more like a wheat crust I add 2 Tablespoons of pamela's baking mix and about 2 tablespoons of flax meal (cuz I put it in just about everything! :D ). Then add enough milk to make it intoa dough - following the other directions on the package. Excellent! and so easy.

Here is the other recipe (an I added flax meal to this one too - really, try it, it's good!)

NY Style Pizza

Makes one 16" crust or two smaller crusts - foldable floppy and not crispy.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons rapid rise yeast

1 1/3 cup warm milk

1 teaspoon sugar

1 1/3 cup brown rice flour

1 cup tapioca flour

1 teaspoons xanthan gum

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin powder

2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning

2 teaspoons olive oil

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425F degrees. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm milk. In a separate larger bowl, blend together dry ingredients. Stir in yeast mixture to dry ingredient mixture. Add oil and apple cider vinegar. Mix well.

Grease and flour the pizza pan (just like you grease and flour a cake pan). Pat down dough on pan - sprinkle top of dough with flour so dough doesn't stick to your hands as you're shaping pizza. Bake plain un-topped crust for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and add toppings.

Return to oven and bake for another 10 minutes.

Tip: I put plastic wrap over dough and then roll out with small rolling pin (on pan) to avoid sticky dough.

    • It makes a difference if you are Catholic. Don't want to get into a debate about why, but Catholic's must use some form of wheat in the host.  There is no such thing as a gluten free communion wafer at a Catholic Mass. The solution for a celiac is a LOW gluten host made from wheat starch.  That is not a solution that works for many celiacs.  You could also just take the cup, if it is offered, provided it does not have any of the host broken into it.  You do run the risk of cross contamination unless you are the first person receiving from the cup. Spiritual Communion is sometimes all you can do if you don't have a priest that understands or will work with you. My daughter has become very sensitive after a recent accidental high exposure to gluten. Her symptoms are neurological (loss of use of right foot and right arm, loss of balance, heaviness of limbs, loss of sight).   We spoke to our priest and he ordered a special small cup just for her. He leaves it covered during the consecration so there is no cross contamination.  My husband and I are Eucharistic Ministers and give it to her after we receive so the priest doesn't have to juggle so many things.   So, that is the Catholic solution. There is information on the USCCB website to provide your priest if he needs guidance.  http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/the-mass/order-of-mass/liturgy-of-the-eucharist/celiac-disease-and-alcohol-intolerance.cfm
    • So great to hear! Actually makes sense with the iron, as vitamin C helps in the absorption of iron. Sounds like a good theory that it is either the vitamin C, or vitamin C aiding in the absorption of the iron. Thanks for all the feedback. Going to try adding iron as well. Hoping this will help us both feel better and worry less  
    • Hello and welcome I don't have celiac. I do have several symptoms in common with you and I do have a problem with gluten, so NCGS for want of a better term.  A celiac response to gluten involves the immune system so there certainly can be a delay between ingestion and the body producing the antibodies. That would correlate with your tongue aching progressively through the week. Some of the weirder symptoms of celiac occur because those antibodies that have identified gluten proteins as a problem then attack different parts of the body, maybe that's the more delayed reaction in your case. Last time I was glutened definitely I noticed some reaction in a few hours but it was a couple of days before I was certain. After effects can last for weeks or months even.  Wheat allergy is the one with the instant response, it's IGE mediated and so you can have an immediate surge in histamines and in extreme cases anaphylaptic reaction. NCGS is less well understood, some dispute it's existince or question if gluten is the cause. The symptoms however are similar to celiac as far as I know and that includes response time.  You've been through a miserable time but your still young and you need to decide whether you want to pursue a diagnosis or not. If you do, then it will require a gluten challenge of probably 6-12 weeks. See the links below for more details.  If you don't I suggest you go strictly gluten free, keep a food diary and see if the improvements you noted before continue. I think you've probably found your answer. Best of luck!   Further reading https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/
    • This is why many of us stick to our own "Trusted Brands" of things we know are safe, and only buy stuff with the offical certification for gluten free. NOTE also in the US they do not HAVE to tell you their facility also processes wheat on the label, just if the actual product contains it in the ingredients. But many will just to avoid legal mumbo jumbo if they somehow have CC issues. Saying the facility also contains/processes wheat is just them covering themselves if people get sick from it.
    • I make my own mini loafs of a simple almond,coconut,apple sauce blend for dense, bland bread gluten free, and have my pastor bless them. I then keep them in the freezer and bring a piece with me for communion.
