Hey~ We(me and my one and a half year old daughter) have been gluten free for over a year now! I cant even begin to describe how amazing the change is. But I miss gluten filled food!! I have tried a few of the frozen gf pizzas as well as a few of the box mixes~ they were awful! I have also tried a gf pizza from a resturaunt out here~ it was a corn tortilla with sauce and cheese! So I just wondered if anyone has found a good mix, frozen pizza, or recipe (I have a bread maker). Also I miss lemon poppy seed muffins SOO bad~ So any recipes would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks :)

We use Gluten Free Pantry muffin & Scone mix and I just add whatever I want. My daughter loves them. I have purchased the Schar Pizza crusts and she like them as well. Hope these help.

Hi there,

We use the El Peto muffin mixes and add all kinds of things to the basic mix - blueberries, chocolate chips, cheese, etc. (but not all at once, that would be gross) LOL. Here is the link to their website: http://www.elpeto.com/

I'm not sure about muffins but my mom and (we're both celiac) LOVE 'Namaste foods' They have an awesome pizza crust mix...you just have to add a little bit of oil and some water. We've used that to make pizza when we've had company that doesn't have celiac and they love it too...they even said they wouldn't have know it was gluten free if we hadn't told them!!

totally forgot - hormel pepperoni is safe...not all toppings are so make sure to double check!

My husband and daughter are both diagnosed - he has made pizza crust from scratch that hasn't been too bad - one thing we found that helps the flavor of our flour mix is quinoa seed if you have your own mill... It doesn't have that 'sweet pea' flavor that some soy/tapioca flours have. Also, my mom had bought a pizza that is 'patent pending' where the crust was basically made of cheese...but I can't remember the brand... Hy Vee carried it... We've found as far as the muffins type of thing goes - if you substiute your own flour (and add an egg for the protein/cohesiveness) most recipes are ok... Adding a half tsp of the rising agent (baking powder or baking soda) also seems to help as some gluten free mixes are heavy...

I found that Udi's (of Denver) makes a decent pizza shell as well as excellent sandwich bread. I buy them from Whole Foods. Otherwise you can experiment with some online recipes for pizza and the muffins. I usually have good results if I just google something like "gluten free pizza dough recipe". Oh and I agree the best all purpose "flour" I have found is the Pamela's Baking and Pancake mix. I use it to make everything from pancakes to fried chicken.

Amy's makes a pretty good frozen pizza. Though, I would look into some local mom 'n pop places you may have nearby. I live in the Phoenix area of Arizona and I know of 3 different small pizza stores that provide a gluten free option for pizza. All of them are delicious. One in particular - Picazzo's is so good that my husband prefers the gluten free version (they provide both GF and non-GF).

As far as poppy seed muffins...Pamela's mixes are a great flour mix for muffins and and so many other things. You can purchase Pamela's mixes from Amazon.com, but they are usually available at a store near you...promise. You just have to know where to look.

Good luck.

Hi Rachel,

Congratulation on being gluten free, I have found here where I am, a Pizza place that sells pizza that actually taste good it was a proper base and sauce with all the topping that you normally get. And you can also buy normal gluten free bases here as well so my 8 year son does not miss out the only thing is that they charge extra money for the base, they even sell garlic bread for people on a gluten free diet. but to business I find the best way is to make a scone dough. and then lightly cook it before putting a tomato sauce in and cheese and then you favourite toppings. I do not know if you can get pre made dry ingredients but I mostly use them but I search for a recipe for you.
