Sometime back I mentioned on facebook that of all the gluten-filled treats I used to enjoy, a really good slice of pizza is what I miss the most.
When I’m making my own pizza, I prefer to use the Kinnikinnick frozen pizza crusts. If I’m making a pizza from scratch, you can count me in for King Arthur’s Gluten-Free mix. For delivery, despite all the critics, I love a cheesy gluten-free Domino’s Pizza. But a really good frozen pizza always seems to elude me, except for maybe a Conte’s pizza every now and then.
There is a new Trader Joe’s next to my husband’s office, and he stops by occasionally to grab a few of their “awesome” granola bars for himself. Usually, that trip turns out pretty good for me because he’s nice enough to bring me some kind of gluten-free treat!
This time, he brought home a Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Pizza and simply said, it was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!
It even comes out of the oven looking like a gluten-filled pizza. The cheese melts nicely but the pizza isn’t too greasy. The texture of the crust is fabulous…chewy, doughy, and full of flavor. I also like that the pizza serves four pieces which is enough for one person to stretch out over two meals and not have tons extra that they have to eat or freeze right away. (I’m the queen of baking and freezing, but pizza never seems quite the same after it’s been baked and then put in the freezer.)
Although this pizza isn’t low on fat or calories and can put a dent in the diet, if it’s a tastes-like-the-real-thing grocery store pizza you’re craving, I highly recommend Trader Joe’s gluten-free version!
What is your favorite delivery, grocery store, or from scratch pizza?
