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.

yay for you, but i think you should test out the other nightshades- i dont have a problem with tomatoes, but sometimes peppers bother me... but then again, that could be the fructans...

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!

    • Did a dermatologist AND  an allergist do allergy testing?  Derm tests for specific skin allergies. If your skin is coming in contact with substances that you are allergic to, you can get reactions that get the catch-all eczema label.   Same goes for allergies to dust, etc.  that you may come in contact with.  Years ago I would get deep itchy red areas that would surface; my skin would peel off until it was painful to touch anything.  Best diagnosis I could get was dishidrosis. It tended to be mostly on the palm side of my hand.  At some point allergy testing revealed an allergy to dust and mold, but avoiding these did not stop these episodes. Many years later I went to a good dermatologist who did skin allergy testing. After finding out I'm allergic to many fragrances and to nickel, I simply avoided these or wore gloves, and had no further flare ups. I recently went thru what I feared was DH. I had a rash with blisters that itched and burned. I had inadvertently used a hair product containing wheat protein, however it turned out to be the fragrance or dye in a dish soap I'd been using for a couple years.  Perhaps they changed ingredients, who knows.  After some light treatments, wearing gloves, and switching to a fragrance and dye free soap, my skin cleared up.
    • If you don't follow a gluten-free diet -- you'll probably start first noticing problems because of vitamin deficiencies -- your body can't absorb nutrients from your damaged small intestine; you will be more likely to get stomach cancer (the figure I remember seeing was 800x more likely), more likely to get colon cancer and other cancers; because it is an autoimmune disease it can trigger other autoimmune diseases (that cannot be fixed by dietary changes) like lupus and ms and certain types of arthritis.  WAY more likely to get hard to control diabetes.  There are now doctors that test for celiac when people come in with diabetes. Looking back I had symptoms in my teens, but wasn't diagnosed until I was in my 40's. Already had some bone loss (couldn't absorb calcium), had anemia for about 15 years that they couldn't fix, had lived with suicidal depression for decades that went away the 3rd day I was on a gluten-free diet, and had cancer.   You might not think so now, looking at all the things you feel you'll miss out on, but you are so very lucky to have been diagnosed at 19. Any problems you currently have will be reversible. gluten-free Pizza is great -- you just have to find the places that make it the best. The first couple months are the worst, because gluten seems like it is in everything, but once you figure out your new "go to's" for snacks and meals, it gets easier. Good luck!
    • Hello, has anybody any suggestions for gluten free options at LAX airport, specifically terminals 2 and Tom Bradley International?   I saw there's a Built Burger.  Has anyone been there?  Thank you!  
    • A mistake that many of, myself included, made! Don't feel bad about it, feel good that you've at least identified a possible cause. I was faced with a similar choice a few years ago and opted to go back onto gluten for a 'challenge' to see if I had celiac. I kept a food diary during this time and tracked the reappearance of symptoms, some gastro intestinal but primarily neurological. I tested negative for celiac much to my surprise, but the challenge confirmed gluten as an issue, so NCGS is best diagnosis I'm likely to get for now at least.  Your question re fructans is a good one and not easy to answer. The fact you've asked it suggests you've done some research and are aware of the unclear science once celiac is excluded. For what its worth I think that what may happen is that some people who get IBS relief from a gluten free diet are indeed correct to avoid the foods, but incorrect in identifying gluten as the cause.  They may actually be reacting to fructans, polyols, or other parts of the wheat,carbs rather than proteins.  However there are also well documented cases where gluten itself is the culprit, some more info on this here and I believe this is where I sit.   You need to decide what level of uncertainty you can live with. Medical assistance will depend on reintroducing gluten. If you do it with a food diary you may learn more about your reactions, maybe even be able to customise your diet to your own body. Most importantly, you would properly exclude celiac as a cause, which is important because its a serious condition and if you do have it, far better to know for both you and your family who may also want to be tested.  Finally, I collected some links and info here some time ago, it may be useful.  Best of luck Matt
