Gluten Free Product Review #1

Purely Bulk Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix

Being a gluten free foodie means that I am always on the look out for new and tasty products. Not all gluten free products are alike and some definitely taste better than others. It has taken me quite some time to find the products that I like the most but am always up for trying something new. I get very excited when I see a new gluten free product at the grocery store.

A few weeks ago, my fiancee brought home some new products kindly given to him by a colleague of his whom he had told that I was gluten free. One of those products was the Purely Bulk Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix. 

Since receiving the product a few weeks ago, we have used it three times. 

1 - we made pizza
2 - we made flat bread
3 - we made donuts

Needless to say, we have absolutely fallen in love with this product. It is very simple to make - you only need a few additional ingredients besides what is in the package. What I love most about this product is that it produces a really flavorful and moist dough. If you have ever had gluten free bread, you may have noticed that many of them are dense and do not always have a lot of flavour, so this is why we really loved this product.

We also loved it because it was so versatile! Just follow the directions on the package to make a great pizza crust - just add your own toppings and go. We learned very easily that the dough was so tasty that you could serve it as flat bread. Instead of making pizza with the dough, just pull it apart and use it as bread for a meal or to serve with dips or salsa.

Lastly, we also made donuts with the dough. My fiancee's mother is known for making fantastic little donuts out of pizza dough. We thought we would give it a try with this pizza dough and it turned out amazing! Here is how we did it:

Step 1. Start by making the pizza dough just as it is directed on the package. You will get a nice runny (not too thick) batter.

Step 2. Get a frying pan on the stove. Pour in a good amount of cooking oil and get it nice and hot.

Step 3. When the oil is hot, use a spoon or a small measuring cup and scoop up donut sized amounts of batter and pour them into the hot oil. Try not to overcrowd them - just do a few at a time.

Step 4. Flip them over once until both sides are nice and brown then remove them from the oil.

5. In a separate bowl, mix cinnamon and sugar together. Pour this over the hot donuts to season them. 

...... Enjoy!

I would most definitely recommend this product. We will definitely continue to keep it in stock at our house!
