one of my friends is coming into town next weekend to visit and i'm trying to plan meals. i'm the Celiac, not her, but she knows all about it (her dad, aunt and uncle all have it). my boyfriend is dying for pizza (he's gone without for 6 weeks now in support of me) so i told them they could order one and i would try not to cry too much. :( i want to get my own pizza so it won't be as traumatizing but i'm not sure which is the best one.

my problem is that i don't live near anything but a few mainstream grocery stores with a couple tiny gluten-free shelves in the "Natures MarketPlace" food sections. no Trader Joe's, no Whole Foods, no Wegmans, no health food stores. I'm a terrible cook and am not especially excited at the thought at trying to make my own dough.

The only 2 brands i've seen at my stores are Amy's and Glutino. Is one better than the other? or will i be disappointed by either one and i should just stick to salad or chicken or something?

I like the Amy's better personally. I get the cheese pizza, then buy a bunch of my own toppings, pepperoni, onions, olives, etc. I cook it a little bit longer than it asks for to make sure the crust is cooked all the way through the middle, then serve with ranch dressing for dipping. Yum.

Also: try a compromise, have a pizza topping party, where everyone gets to help out, but go all gluten-free crusts. Then there is no crying :)

sounds like i better do a trial run with both brands before next weekend!

i do like the idea about making our own though...i'll have to check the stores to see if they sell pre-made crusts.

Well I use the pre-frozen ones, but since they are so boring as to just come with cheese I jazz them up and then cook them according to the directions, just adding some minutes. I also add more cheese, cause i love cheese...

I have 3 kids and a full-time job, and I honestly think it's faster, easier, and tastier to make my own using corn tortillas. I make them all the time for my boys and their friends, and their friends scarf them down with no complaints.

For thin crust, use one tortilla per pizza--heat on griddle sprayed with PAM over high heat for 1-2 minutes per side, then transfer to a foil-lined cookie sheet.

For thick crust, use 2 corn tortillas, and sandwich a slice of mozzarella or provolone between them, then brown on each side of the "sandwich." Then transfer to the cookie sheet.

Top with your favorite sauce (we use plain ol' canned tomato sauce, doctored with basil and garlic powder), cheese (shredded mozzarella, of course, but provolone works well, too, and it comes in convenient round slices that fit perfectly on the corn tortillas), and whatever toppings you like--we like bacon bits, shredded chicken, fresh basil, and little globs of ricotta. Shove under the broiler for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and just starting to brown.

Ask your friend and boyfriend what their favorite toppings are!

Start to finish=20 minutes.

I'm with Fiddle-Faddle. I make a microwave version of her pizza. Place two corn tortillas on a plate, spread pizza sauce on top ( I like Enrico's) add shredded cheese (your choice, I use sharp chedder cheese) and toppings. I only add pepperoni but I am sure other toppings found on pizzas can be added, although some may need to be precooked. Put another corn tortilla on top and microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute (unitl the cheese is melted) I cut it into small pieces and eat it with a knife and fork.

I have not made Fiddle-Faddles pizza but since she is using the stove and the broiler hers is probably better.

Hope all works out well.

If I didnt have all my restrictions, I would order one of these. I have it bookmarked for when I am healed. They ship it frozen and you cook it at home. This restaurant got great reviews all over online. And my god.....they have cannoli........gluten-free cannoli. A little pricey....but for a special occasion......

We usually buy the frozen crusts and make our own, then we can put however and which ever toppings we want. My husband and I go crazy with bacon and brocolli so we love making our own.

    • I think she wants you to be strictly gluten free and heal.  Not give you things to patch up the damage you are causing by not getting your antibodies down and healing.   I am sure  she expected that you would take your diagnosis seriously and eat gluten-free.  4 months after your diagnosis, your antibodies would have gone down better.  But you weren't eating gluten free.  Eat gluten free. Take your supplements.  Read about the correct way to get your iron up - B12, vitamin C, don't take with calcium foods, etc  
    • Hello! I'm hoping to get some advice from y'all about iron IV infusions. First, some background: I was diagnosed with celiac disease at the beginning of June this year (2017).  I had labs done in March and my serum ferritin was 5 ng/mL. Hgb was 11.1, which isn't all that low, but is still flagged as below the normal range. I took 325 mg ferrous gluconate supplements daily for two months, and when my ferritin was rechecked, it was down to 4. The doctor ordered a celiac antibody panel and all of the levels were high. Confirmed with endoscopy at the end of May. A month later, I left for a 2-month study abroad program in France (aka the land of bread and pastries). After returning to the US at the beginning of August, I finally went gluten-free.  At the beginning of September, I returned to my University. Almost immediately, I realized I was really tired and was having a hard time making it through the day without a nap. I finally had a follow-up GI appointment around September 20th with the PA of the doctor who performed my endoscopy (not the same doctor from March). During the appointment, I asked her what we would do if my labs showed an iron-defiency. She told me that we would either do oral supplements or IV infusions, depending on whether or not she thought I'd absorb the supplements. When the lab results came in on the online patient portal, she made no comment on any of the iron-related results, just sent me a message that my antibody levels were still quite high, that I needed to keep up a strict gluten-free diet, and that we would recheck everything in six months. My ferritin was down to 3, Hgb was 10.3, iron saturation 6%, etc.  I was concerned about those results, so I called the PA's nurse and left a voicemail asking what the plan was for getting those levels up and got a portal message back from the PA saying that my hemoglobin was slightly low and will get better over time as I cut out all the gluten in my diet, but that I can start taking supplements if I want to speed up the process. I know that the Hgb still isn't that low, but it seems like the ferritin level is more serious. I went back for an appointment with the doctor who first found the iron-deficiency back in the spring and she seemed a lot more concerned. When I brought up IV iron therapy, she seemed to think it was a good idea. However, she's a primary care physician through my school's clinic, so she can't give me infusions. She called the PA with the intention of finding out whether or not she would change her mind about infusions, and had no luck. Interestingly, the PA's nurse informed her that they don't expect me to be able to absorb the supplements right away, and would consider IV infusions after I've been gluten-free for another six months.  I've done a bit of research on the IV infusions and it seems like I fit the criteria. Based on my antibody levels, I'm clearly not able to absorb iron any better than back in the spring, when the oral supplements did nothing for me. I understand that once my intestines heal more, I'll start being able to absorb iron better and should be able to boost my levels with oral supplements. However, I feel like I need a solution that will help me much sooner. I have a very demanding course load this semester and I'm constantly exhausted. I fall asleep doing homework at least twice a week. My grades are suffering, my mental health is suffering, and my relationships are being tested. I still don't have an explanation for why the PA doesn't think IV infusions are appropriate and I don't understand it. I really don't know what to do next because I'm afraid if I try to talk to the PA again, she'll get annoyed. I know that was super long, so for anyone still reading, thank you for bearing with me!! Now for the questions: 1. Do you think iron IV infusions in the near future would be a reasonable treatment for me? 2. Do you have any advice on how to make them happen? And if you have any other advice that's relevant to my situation, I'd love to hear it!   Thanks so much, Sofie
    • I can tell you that last week, I picked up and delivered 30 boxes of Costco pizza to a hungry marching band.  I lived!  Seriously, just wash your hands after handling.  Ennis is right.  Do not take a big sniff of the boxes in case there is any residual flour.  It took days for my van to air out and I did lay some old beach towels to protect my interior as normally, gluten is not allowed!  
    • I just found a nicer compilation of her work, much easier to understand. She also makes the connection between Sleep apnea, vit. D and the gut. Maybe you will enjoy it too:  https://www.vitamindwiki.com/Handout+on+Vitamin+D+(Hormone+D)+and+sleep+-+Gominak+2012 She mentions autoimmune diseases in general but not Celiacs. But I think it all connects and makes sense.  You are right, no matter how a post is, someone might read it. I did. 
    • i looooove nuts.com.  i've already ordered all my nuts, etc, for holiday baking from them.  if you order (i think it's 65 bucks) enough, you get free shipping.  the nuts are so pretty, not all busted up and stuff.  they send you a little sample with your order (this time it was goji berries) also, i got pepitas and sweet rice flour.  they have added alot of new products.  i highly recommend them
