Gluten Free Pizza. Safe or Not?
Gluten Free Pizza Information and Guide.
Do You Still Eat Pizza Staying on Gluten-Free Diet? Is it safe?
Are you looking for ways to broaden your gluten free food list?
It took a lot of time to get used to not having pizza for my kids. They were upset at parties at first. Every time there was an event to go have fun they would not even be as excited.
It took a lot of patience on my end to convince them its Ok not to have what other people are having. It finally worked. My boys were absolutely fine to eat a healthy gluten free snack while others enjoyed their pizza.
And then the BIG change came... All of a sudden health food stores and some supermarkets are getting frozen pizzas marketed as GLUTEN-FREE PIZZA. Kids are excited and I’m cautious about the ingredients.
So we tried our first frozen gluten-free pizza and….got very disappointed. The taste, the texture… This was not working…
So the kids suggested trying making pizza ourselves.
I got my gluten free brown rice tortilla in Trader’s Joe, poured a little of organic Tomato Basil pasta sauce, topped with some shredded raw cheese. Heated this creation in the toaster oven on 400F for 10 minutes and believe it or not it came out pretty good.
When we were out of the gluten free brown rice tortillas we would just get gluten free bread and proceed as we did with that tortilla. I think my older son mastered this better than me because at some point he stopped asking me to do it for him and instead he would make it for everyone.
I've been asked many times for best Gluten-free pizza recipe.
I am planning to share gluten free pizza crust recipe here.
But, please learn to choose safe gf pizza.
Now, I would like to take a little pause and mention that I don’t advocate eating pizza at all. It’s not the most nutrition packed meal. It’s not the healthiest choice of food whether its gluten free or not. But once in a while if your kid REALLY wants that pizza why not just have him enjoy that. Right? But not too often:)
And then, we moved out from our state and discovered that there are pizzerias which make great tasting gluten-free pizzas. We loved our first gluten-free pizza DELIVERY. It was our “welcome to your new home present and now you can have gluten-free pizza delivered to your door”.
I thought it was too good to be true. I thought that something must be wrong with it. But as I spoke to the owner of that pizzeria he assured me that it was very safe to eat. He made a special separated oven for gluten-free pizza. He never gets them mixed in. There is no way for contaminating gluten-free pizza because he designated one part of the kitchen to gluten free section and places a barrier in between. I couldn’t be happier with the taste. “How lucky for us?” I thought. And then the pizzeria owner told me that all of this was an idea of one very dedicated husband whose wife was a Celiac and couldn’t eat with a family. He suggested all this and even helped the owner find the way to order gluten free dough.
I thought to myself that if you really try hard enough to have your pizzeria owner to carry gluten free doughand make gf pizza for you it’s not impossible.
Also, with all those unsuccessful frozen gluten-free pizzas attempts we actually found two that had a decent taste and decent ingredients. They were Gluten-Free Pizza by Grainless Baker and Klein's.
I still wouldn't recommend anything with soy substitutes; even if it's a frozen pizza.

How to reduce the risk of contamination:
The facility that makes your gluten-free pizza had to be free of all gluten, and/or other allergens like nuts and soy. If no dedicated stone is available, use of a pizza pan or aluminum foil is recommended. For use in conveyor ovens it’s recommended cooking pizzas in a clean or dedicated pizza pan or screen.
When serving gluten free pizza it’s recommended to use a dedicated cutting board, pizza cutter and paddle which are used only for gluten free pizzas.
