Gluten-free Pizza Crust Review

Hey Guys,

So when Chris is not traveling we like to devote Thursdays to our date night. And one of our favorite date night activities is making homemake pizza and snuggling up to watch a movie. Here starts my journey on finding the BEST gluten-free pizza crust!

The first one we put to the test: Pampered Chef. I got this from my mother-in-law for Christmas and we couldn’t wait to try it out! I did not even know that pampered chef had gluten-free options!

IMG_3082Because it was a prepackaged mix, the ease of the recipe was pretty high.  All we did was add in egg and oil! Here is a recipe  even an accountant can handle.

Yeah we used our new kitchen aid, with  the bread dough attachment, when we could have used a spoon, because well we have a kitchanaid now!

After mixing, the dough was sooo sticky (which it warned about on the package), we tried to roll it out and it was a mess so we just kind of pushed it with our hands.

Then we baked. Tada!

IMG_3090Of course Chris added some garlic chunks to the crust..which you can see in this picture. And surprisingly the crust did not stick to the pan…I was foreseeing a mess, after seeing how sticky it was pre-baking.

Then we added all the fix-ins… This pizza had bacon, green pepper, onion, pepperoni, and cheese.

Yumm!

Overall rating:  Me: 3/5, Chris: 3/5

The texture was GREAT! It held up well during cutting and was perfectly crisp which is hard to find in gluten-free products. The only downfalls were the stickiness of the dough and that once we finally tasted our masterpiece it was very salty. When you add pepperoni and cheese to the already salty crust, it was a bit much…but we still managed to eat it all.

It was so fun to make and very delicious….but the search continues, until next date night!

Help with the search and leave any and all delicious pizza recipes, we will be baking this Thursday (and the one on the menu is made from quinoa..shhh don’t tell Chris)!
