When it comes to pizza, there are only a few options. You can get a frozen pizza, you can get pizza delivery from a few places, or you could get pre-made pizza crusts.
While these options are pretty convenient, we opt for the pre-made crust route. It is easy to make your own pizza with whatever toppings you want, and bake it. Luckily, we have a Trader Joe's near my house that sells really good pre-made crusts.
My mom and I have tried several different frozen pizza, most of them were honestly not that good. Some have a distinct rice flavor (come on, it's not Chinese takeout), or can be kind of soggy and sticky in the middle.
When we first came across the crusts in Trader Joe's, we were originally looking for a gluten free pizza dough. We were almost sure that they had it in the past. Next to the regular pizza dough sat a small package of gluten free pizza crusts, and because we were planning on having pizza night in our house, we thought we would try it.
We took home the package that we bought for about $1.99, and tried our hand at making pizzas. When we first tried them, we found the center was sticky and kind of gooey like many of the other gluten free pizzas we have tried.
I figured I added to much sauce, but I was willing to give it a second chance. The next time we bought them I brushed the crusts with olive oil, and baked them for a few minutes before adding the toppings and baking for a few minutes after that. I got great results from that.
The has a soft in the middle, crispy on the outside texture, and reminds me of the homemade pizzas I use to make using regular white flour pizza dough. When properly baked, it holds up to heavier toppings, like roasted brussel sprouts. This crust is fantastic compared to many others I have tasted.
If you are looking for an easy and delicious gluten free dinner, look no further than the Trader Joe's gluten free pizza crusts. Add whatever you would like on top (I love an feta cheese, chicken, roasted brussel sprouts, and olive oil) and bake in you oven for a quick and convenient meal.
Notes: After emailing Trader Joe's, I was told that anyone could review their products, so I jumped at the opportunity. Trader Joe's did not sponsor this post, and this post was completely my opinion. Besides their crusts being good, their frozen gluten free pizzas happen to be excellent, and my non gluten free mom loves it.
