Jules Gluten Free Flour and Mixes are some of the best around. I quickly fell in love with the flour mix, using it to make some of my favorite baked goods. When I tried some of the other mixes, I was equally impressed with the quality and taste, appreciating the ease of having most of the ingredients already combined. Now Jules has added a new mix to the line-up: Jules Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix.
More about the mix and how it came about:
What do you miss more than pizza on this gluten-free journey? It’s right up there with "bread" and "beer" when Jules polls a room full of GFers. Jules will admit, she used to live on pizza and beer in college, and missed it sorely after her celiac diagnosis. After she perfected her gluten-free flour, a gluten-free pizza crust recipe followed closely on its heels.
As Jules shared that recipe with friends and at cooking classes and at some of the gluten-free expos she’s attended, people started telling her what she already knew. "This is the best pizza crust I’ve had since going gluten free!" many tell her. Others swear it’s better than the wheat version they remember. ALL of them asked her why she didn’t make crusts to sell in stores. No surprise, Jules’ answer was always, ‘You love the crust I just gave you, because it didn’t come from a store.’ Homemade beats plastic-wrapped or frozen pizza crust—hands down—every time.
Now, we know what you’re thinking…and you’re wrong. It’s not hard to make your own pizza crust. It’s even roll-up-your-sleeves, rope-in-your-family fun! It takes only a few minutes to mix up the ingredients. Then you form it into a circle with your hands, or with a rolling pin. Let it rise for 30 minutes, bake it for 15, add your toppings, and bake for 20 more. The aroma, sense of satisfaction and pride on your kids’ (or spouse’s) faces are priceless. You can do this! But no one can make their first homemade crust (or anything else they’ve never made) if they don’t actually buy what they need from a trusted, proven source, and jump right in!
The pizza crust mix contains 2 separate inner bags that each make a 12-inch crust. The yeast packets are included, so all you need to do is add the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, water and eggs (or egg substitute). The pizza crust mix is available for purchase on the Jules Gluten Free website. The normal price is $9.95/bag, but it is 45% off – only $5.50 - until 6/27/2013 on the “Deal of the Day” page. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of the page to see the deal on the pizza crust.
I am looking forward to giving this mix a try. I love a good homemade pizza! There is something comforting about creating my own gourmet masterpiece to pair with a nice glass of cabernet.
