Happy for you that you got your pizza back. We do sometimes find that after we have fully healed we can add some stuff back in. Now that you can have it again you may want to look for the Kinnickinnick crusts. At 4 crusts for about $9 they come out much cheaper than buying the ready made ones even once you add in the sauce ( I freeze leftover sauce flat since I only use 1 crust at a time then just break off what I need and thaw in the microwave), Hormel pepperoni and other toppings.

Yay! Isn't it nice when those other intolerances go away? B) I was so happy to put milk in my coffee after a year gluten-free.

I used to get those Kinnickinnick sp? crusts @ my local health food store, but the store closed a few months ago! (bummer, right! ;) HAHAHA One of the owners has Celiac Disease.

But I find Amy's pizzas @ Fred Meyer (Kroeger) they have a great selection of gluten-free foods AND organic foods :)

go-go Skylark!! :):):)

I would ask the store if they could get the Kinni brand for you. Be really careful with Amy's as many have CC issues with them. Gluten Free Pantry makes a French Bread mix that makes a really good pizza crust.

If you like a thin crust. I use rice tortillas. Spray with a little olive oil & bake for about 3 minutes. Then top and bake some more.

Good for you!

I second the gluten free pantry crust. You have to mix it yourself but it's super easy and so yummy. They ought to pay me for all the times I recommend them on here. :lol:

Pizza is good with pesto if you are avoiding nightshades. Fresh basil, olive oil, one clove garlic, parmesan or romano cheese, pine nuts are optional but add a nice flavor. Don't forget the salt.

:) I was actually making artichoke-lemon pesto and spreading that on the crust when I was still having troubles with nightshades... was very yummy but not the same.

Be well!

    • A quick perusal of Dr. Brownstein's website outs him quite quickly as a purveyor of pseudoscience. Though he may be an MD, he appears to have abandoned evidence in favour of selling stuff people don't need by making them afraid, using his authority as a doctor. Like all such individuals, what he says has some basis of truth (eg. hypothyroid disorders are quite common, the average North American has a terrible diet), but he twists it to create fear and take advantage of those who are less scientifically literate. Conspiracy theories abound to be found at: http://www.drbrownstein.com/dr-bs-blog/ Here is a criticism of his work: https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/does-your-antivax-doctor-have-another-agenda/
    • Almost 2 years into my diagnosis after losing about 35-40 pounds I have now added about 60 with clean gluten free eating. I also changed jobs which for me has been much more of a physical change, thus needing more calories I have finally been able to put back some pounds. It is possible, for me the clean diet which helped restore my guts let me finally start absorbing the nutrients I was lacking. 
    • Hi Niza, Try to eat lots of protein.  Meats, peanut butter, avocadoes, things like that.  Try to avoid processed (pre-made) foods like frozen pizza, cereals, pot pies, cookies etc.   There gluten-free versions of many of these foods, but they are best saved for later on like 6 months after going gluten-free. If you are just starting out gluten-free, eat a simple diet of mostly foods you make yourself at home.  Also, try not eat eating any dairy (milk, cheese etc) for a couple months.  Oats are also a thing to avoid eating for a couple months.  You may not have any problem with dairy or oats, but some people do. Welcome to the forum Niza!
    • I am. I went undiagnosed for years and years and I honestly thought I was dying. I had been trying to gain weight even before my diagnosis and could barely gain a thing. I am so relieved to actually have an answer as to WHY! I was just diagnosed last weekend so I still have a lot of internal healing to do after years of villus atrophy. I have been drastically underweight for some time now, although I am slowly gaining. I am currently eating around 2,500 calories a day and not doing any strenuous exercise. I am only 74 lb (at 5'2") and I started out at 67 back in the beginning of December. I eat as much as some of my guy friends eat in order to "bulk" when they are lifting heavy at the gym and yet I still seem to gain at a slower rate. Just goes to show how messed up your intestines can become after years of abuse. 
    • Hey Deb, In theory (based on some studies), your small instestine should heal pretty fast (within weeks), but often there is collateral damage that can take longer (like your bone pain).  For me, personally, a gluten exposure can set me back three to six months.  My antibodies can last over a year.  And worse, I now developed autoimmune gastritis and hives.  Yikes!   I had  some hip and rib cage pain when I was first diagnosed.  Two months later I fractured some vertebrae.  I had been undiagnosed for so long, that I developed osteoporosis.  I assume that once on a gluten free diet, your pain should diminish based on a strict adherence to the diet and  your previous experience.   I hope you feel better soon!
