Against the Grain Gluten Free Pizza Review

It’s been a busy couple of weeks! While I was in Myrtle Beach, SC a few weeks ago, I stopped into Bay Naturals Healthy Market andKitchen.  I always love to check out new products, and this place had lots to choose from!

One item I picked up was Against the Grain Gluten Free Pizza. Against the Grain  is a Vermont based company and they have breads, rolls, pizza shells, bagels and frozen ready-to-eat pizzas.

I picked up a pepperoni pizza (12 inch) to try. Once I got over the sticker shock ($14.49), all was good. The poor check out guy couldn’t figure out why the pizza was so expensive – he felt so bad, he gave me the store discount of 10% if you have their loyalty card. Considering the little Glutino pizzas go for $7-$8 in NL, it actually wasn’t a horrible price.

The pizza just cooks like any other frozen pizza, and after 20 minutes in the oven, it was ready to eat! As you can tell from the picture, it had a nice crust, and a good number of pepperoni pieces. (I added the bigger pieces because we had them around).

This pizza was delicious, and worth every penny. The crust was soft, and almost pastry like, the cheese and sauce were also perfect. The left over pieces kept well in the fridge for next-day snacking, and overall, I loved this product.

The next question is – when will they arrive in Canada?
