Being gluten free I have to admit that I miss pizza, these days also being vegan that would be a
cheese free pizza but still I do miss it. I have tried various things to satisfy this including many gluten free bread products, it is never the same. We visited Zizis the restaurant because I read they did an amazing GF vegan pizza, it wasn't, but it was wafer thin, overpriced with practically zero topping on it. Did I mention how I hate to be ripped off and we don't even go out that often.
So when I saw these Schar pizza bases I was excited, I love the Schar bread and although it is expensive I will pay the extra for this as I am so limited in what I can have and their bread has quinoa, linseed goodness and tastes super. We brought the bases home today and I piled on all my lovely toppings, fried red onions, cherry tomatoes, sauce, garlic mushrooms, Italian herbs and vegan cheese.
When it came out of the oven I cut it up and sat down to tuck in. Well, dry powdery bread just like every other gluten free product I tend to try, I was disappointed to say the least. The loaf I buy by this make is so good I expected too much I think. You see I had resigned myself a while ago to the fact that bread based meals are a thing of the past. On the occasion I have some it is beans or tomatoes on the Schar toast so this moistens the bread. I would not recommend buying this product but their loaves are good if pricey.
The best and closest I have come to enjoying something resembling a pizza is when I used a wrap as a base and just topped that with lots of veg. The reason that may have worked better is that a wrap is so thin so you don't experience the dry floury texture of a thicker dough.
If anyone has tried anything better I would love to hear about it. I am usually pretty good at improvising with the GF, vegan foods but sometimes on a Saturday you just want to come home and have a pizza like everyone else!
