Frozen Gluten Free Pizza Crust Showdown
When you don’t have time to make your own gluten free pizza crust, ready made crusts are a quick solution.
We’ve tried a few different frozen pizzas and pizza crusts, and here are our thoughts on them. None were excellent, but it’s frozen pizza so our hopes weren’t incredibly high. We added a few extra toppings to each – extra cheese, fresh basil, onions, and red peppers. You know we have to enhance the flavor of everything we eat, but since we were only judging crust and consistency our additions did not affect our review.
We found the sauce and cheese to be adequate on this pizza. We found the crust to be crunchy and somehow both chewy and crumbly. The crust seemed to be heavy on the corn as it seemed rather gritty. The flavor was overall great and was my girlfriends favorite out of the three pizzas. The crust passed the cold pizza test well enough still being edible.
Against the Grain
This was the sole untopped crust we tried out. It looked amazing and was a three cheese flavored crust. We found that topping it with sauce and cheese and baking it according to the instructions gave us a gummy unpleasant crust. The flavor was cheesy but not a flavor reminiscent of pizza crust. It was a bit too buttery flakey for a pizza. This was actually our least favorite pizza of the night. Maybe parbaking the crust till a little beyond golden brown may help the consistency issue. It seemed to taste better cold the next day and the cold helped the chewy gummy crust seem more palatable.
We found this to be the tastiest option but it only won by a slim margin. The sauce and cheese were adequate but we again added some of our own cheese. We found the crust to be crunchy on the edge with chewy but not bad overall texture. The flavor was the most real pizza flavor of the three. it also won the cold pizza contest being pleasant the next day to eat.
