Pamela’s Products Wheat-Free Bread Mix (Pizza Crust version) – gluten free

I have used this mix to make bread with great success, so when I realized the packaging displayed a recipe for pizza crust, I knew I just had to try it.

Mixing the dough was not problematic. I easily shaped the dough on my pizza stone. To reduce stickiness I used GF canola oil spray on my fingertips. With this particular mix, I baked the crust naked first, then added toppings and baked it again until my cheese was bubbly and veggies appeared browned. For this pizza, it had a mexican flare, topped with cheddar, salsa and fresh veggies.

The bottom of the crust provided a decent crunch when consumed, with a softer, chewy center. I did not have any complaints about texture or appearance. However, my beef is with the taste. It was AWFUL. Yes, that’s right. AWFUL. This particlar mix is way too sweet for a pizza, in my opinion. I could barely choke down my first slice! Who would want a sweet flavored crust? I then remembered that the Pamela’s bread does have a mildly sweet flavor thanks to the evaporated cane sugar, honey and molasses. I was really disappointed.

Pros: nice texture

Cons:Â too sweet for a pizza with traditional toppings

Rating: 1 1/2 stars

    Thanks for the review! I just opened up a bag and was considering pizza for supper. I have never used any of the Pamela’s mixes before, but I had noticed there was sugar in it. I’m glad did a search for reviews first! I think I’ll stick to using it for breads, coffee cakes, etc. I have had Namaste pizza crust mix recommended to me as being very good, so I may give that a try.
