About Me

Welcome to my blog - my ramblings about trying to find healthy, affordable gluten free food in St. John's, NL.
Despite being gluten free, I love to try new products and am always interested to hear about new places to eat.
I try to help the environment and purchase organic products where possible.

Bob’s Red Mill Pizza Crust Review

Pizza is a special treat that I don’t get very often. I’ve written about one of my favorite gluten free crusts before, but I am always up to trying something new!

Bob’s Red Mill sells a gluten free crust mix that bakes two 12 inch pizzas, or one larger 16 inch pizza. You can find the mix in Sobeys or Dominion and it usually runs about $5 a bag (it’s $2.50 on vitacost if you order online).

The mix is easy to make. Add ingredients to the stand mixer – yeast, oil, water and egg (I used a “flax egg”), mix together and let sit for 20 minutes. Then spread the dough on a greased pizza pan and bake as directed (about 15-20 minutes depending on your oven/crispy factor). I did find the dough a little tough to spread evenly, but eventually I got it all worked around the pan - the picture to the left is after it baked it's first round in the oven.

Take out the pizza, add your toppings and bake again for 15 minutes (or longer if you like it crispy or you need the cheese to melt).

Overall, the crust was pretty good. It was a little more “doughy” than the Namaste one, but if you like a softer crust – this one is great! My DH, had a piece and said it was good – so from a gluten eater this is high praise for GF products!
