Pillsbury Gluten-Free Pizza Dough: A Product Review

Most of you know I’m gluten-free due to celiac disease and my son has multiple food allergies including peanuts and nuts.  Those of you who have multiple different food allergies in your family can appreciate the challenges that statement brings.

The only really bad part about being the only one gluten-free in my family is that when I make a gluten-free goodie, it usually beckons for me to eat it…all of it…by myself…as it’s not always safe for my son to eat and not always what the rest of my family would consider as delicious as gluten-filled things.

I’ve heard a lot about the new gluten-free line from Pillsbury and it got my curiosity up.  There are so many supposedly allergy-friendly products out there on the market, and let’s be honest- some of them are as delicious as their claims and some of them taste like, well, feet.  That’s right…I said it.  I’m being honest.

So, when I found the Pillsbury tubs of gluten-free goodness at my local H-E-B, I got one of each:  chocolate chip cookie dough, pizza crust, and pie crust.  (Each tub was a little under $5, cheap compared to some gluten-free products.)  Every time I opened my fridge they sat there staring at me and finally this past week I got a bee in my bonnet and finally made them.

As you will see from a previous post, my whole family loved the cookie dough, but on the whole, I would have to say that the pizza crust was a fail.  The pizza crust was so brittle in spots in seemed harder than just really crunchy and in other spots the pizza crust seemed almost doughy.

Bottom line:  I was sincerely disappointed in this product and kinda felt cheated out of a pizza.  Although I will purchase the gluten-free chocolate chip cookie dough again, I will definitely pass on purchasing the pizza dough.

  1. As for an already made crust, I like Kinnikinnick’s rectangle crusts in the freezer section. If I’m making my own, it’s King Arthur’s GF mix from the box…it can’t be beat. Hope this helps!

  2. The Namaste pizza crust mix is excellent. We’ve used it for years, and I get it by the case from Amazon. I’m even on the subscription plan, because we eat pizza at least once a week 😉 I love the King Arthur GF flour and their GF mixes, though. Their muffin mix is the best, especially made with pumpkin (I sub out the liquid and use one egg).
