Being gluten free for the pass year and half hasn’t been as hard as I thought it would be. I eat well and healthier but there are foods I miss. Pizza is one of them.
In Palm Beach County, there are only a few options for gluten-free pizza none of which are within 20 miles, (and being celiac, I don’t count the big D as one of them!) so if I want pizza I have to either make it myself or buy frozen. So far I have not been impressed with the frozen pizzas. They aren’t bad just ok, I think what happens is their crust fall flat! They are plain flavored and very crusty cardboard like. I tend to want to eat just the toppings.
I recently had an opportunity to try a new gluten free pizza made by Better4U! Foods. I have to say I found it very good and I think what set it apart from the other gluten free frozen pizza on the market is the multi-grain crust.
The multi-grain crust is a mixture pf white rice, brown rice, potato, buckwheat flour, and flax seeds. It gives it a nice flavor. Even the gluten eaters in my house liked it but lol said it tasted “healthy” (Important Note – the gluten eaters dont really eat healthy anyways so it wouldnt hurt them to eat better).
It really reminded me of frozen pizza that I ate quite frequently in my pre-gluten free life by kashi. Must be all the grains!
I sampled both the roasted vegetable and cheese. The vegetable was definitely my favorite but my picky toddler liked the cheese. I guess even on pizza you can’t convince the kids to eat their veggies.
The roasted vegetable was generous on toppings and had some premium veggies such as artichokes and eggplant. I also felt the pizza was pretty diet friendly at 200 calories per a quarter of pizza.
Locally, the pizza is available at The Healthy Way, 9704 Clint Moore Road, Boca Raton 33496. We hope that it arrives in Publix or Whole Foods soon too!
