Product Review: Taste of Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Posted on | March 8, 2012 | Comments Off

Taste of Gluten Free sent us a pizza crust to try. I always get nervous with pizza crusts. I have had too many experiences where the crust is hard, crunchy, and has a weird taste to it. I was hoping that this pizza mix didn”t end up like the rest.

This mix retails for $5.00 for a 12 ounce mix, that makes one large pizza or three nine inch mini pizzas.

To prepare the crust I first mixed 2 t vinegar, 2 t oil, and 1 1/3 c warm water. Then I added the dry mix.

I bought a new pizza stone, and placed the dough directly onto it. The pizza dough felt pretty sticky, and I had to wet my hands so the dough didn”t stick to my hands. I placed the pizza into a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes. I then added the toppings which consisted of tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, ham, green peppers and fresh mushrooms. I then placed the pizza back in the oven for 20 minutes.

I was surprised at how well the crust held up to the toppings. Although the pizza bent under the weight of the toppings, it did not break. I took a bite and was in love. The crust is soft and chewy. But, not so soft where it falls apart. I found that the edges were a little crispy, but still chewy.  There was italian seasoning in the crust which added flavor to an otherwise bland crust. Although I love this crust, my gluten eating husband  said it was too chewy and that the taste was a little off.

This pizza crust cooked perfectly on my pizza stone. When I try this crust again, I want to try it on a regular cookie sheet to see if the results are the same.

Rating: 4 stars

Pros: soft and chewy crust with nice flavor

Cons: gluten eater said it was too chewy, with a funny taste
