I'm not much of a sweets person and breakfast is not my favorite meal so I often eat dinner leftovers or something savory first thing in the morning.
And I love pizza. LOTS of cheese. I love onions and green olives and tomatoes and mushrooms and...oh, I love pizza.
But I can't eat anything with wheat in it - because I'm gluten free.
I've been on the hunt for a quick, easy and yummy way to make pizza. I've tried the ready made Udi's brand crusts. They are perfect. Easy and taste good. I keep them in the freezer and have them on hand all the time.
The other day, I found this at the grocery. It was next to the refrigerated cookie dough and canned biscuits at Meijer.
Pillsbury also had a gluten free cookie dough. What's that you say? Of course. Of course I bought the cookie dough! (I haven't cooked it yet but fyi - it's not good raw in case you were wondering. My go to snack in college during finals was a tube of nestle tollhouse cookie dough! Yum!)
This is a Pillsbury brand (and no, this is not an ad, I am not being paid to review the product). I used half the tub to roll out one pizza. And then I loaded that sucker with cheese and onions. (Did I mention I did this at 9 o'clock in the morning?)
So, how was it? Meh...it was ok. I had rolled it pretty thin and pre-cooked the crust following the directions on the tub. I like thin and crispy crusts (which is what the package indicated it was) but this tasted fairly sweet to me. I guess I like my crusts a bit more on the salty side if that makes sense.
Would I buy it again? Probably not. The Udi's ready made crusts taste just a little bit better in my opinion plus I don't even have to roll them out, they are just ready to go. I was hoping that this Pillsbury crust would give me a closer to "pizzeria" style experience but it just didn't for me.
Regardless, I just ate pizza for breakfast. And pizza anytime, makes me happy. So, win, win!
Do you have any gluten free pizza suggestions? I'd love to hear them in the comments!
