gluten free crust

  • [at Jerry's]
  • Chad 2: Give me a slice of pizza, no cheese, no sauce, gluten-free crust. Do you have a protein boost?
  • Waiter: Are you sure you don't want a glass of diet air with that?
  • Chad 2: Is that supposed to be some kind of joke?
  • Waiter: You got me. We only have full calorie air.
For my pie-making friends

If you mean to make a gluten free pie this holiday season, I suggest you not attempt your own recipe. Obtaining a proper mix of flours and binders is time consuming. I recommend getting the Gultuno™ Gluten Free Pantry™ perfect pie crust. It executes excellently, is easy to work with, and has a superior texture. Without certain extranormal olfactory skills, you will never know it contains no wheat.

Do you have much experience with gluten free baking? I LOVE to bake, but I've recently been diagnosed as having celiac disease so regular baking is out of the question now.

DUDE. About 60% of my friends have some sort of dietary restriction/allergy that will legit kill them. For gluten free, there’s a couple of options.

Baked goods that are intrinsically gluten-free

(or can be with very minor substitutions)

These are things like macarons, custard based pies with (gluten-free) oatmeal and cookie crusts, Cheesecakes with the aforementioned crusts,  ethnically asian deserts (rice based)
–If you go oatmeal, Make sure it specifically says Gluten-free.

Paleo Baked goods

There are a plethora of Paleo Recips for baked goods. They are pretty good, the ones made with pumpkin are the best (in my opinion) But they use coconut flour A LOT and I don’t like it that much.

Cup For Cup Gluten free flour 

This Stuff is amazing. It’s Literally a 1 to 1 substitution for normal flour. The texture is slightly different, and i haven’t used it for anything larger than mini bundt cakes and some oatmeal bars, but it worked beautifully

Make sure it’s the Cup for Cup stuff. That means it already includes the binders necessary (ie xanthan gum) and you don’t have to do anything extra to make it work.

A Note on Pies

I have yet to make a double crust fruit pie using a gluten free Crust, but it can be done. And you can often use a crumble topping for fruit pies as well. I have always used Tapioca for a thickener over flour.


IMPORTANT
Depending on your sensitivity, Cross contamination can be your biggest threat.

If you have a sifter or mesh colander you’ve been using for flour, make sure you wash it HELLA thoroughly. Or if you are Deathly sensitive, just throw it out. I have 4 different sifters I use, each corresponding to a specific allergen.
They NEVER touch.

This is just kind of a general info dump, but I hope it helps!
