So I shared a post recently about Aldi’s Gluten Free section of “Live Gfree” products. I bought several and decided to share my opinion of this product. I believe the product cost $2.99 and is said to yield 2- 12 inch pizzas.
The mix was easy to work with and required only 1 egg, water and olive oil. The dough came together very nicely and had a great texture. I actually divided it into 6 piece to make individual pizzas. Also, as a side-note, you are suppose to let the dough rest covered for 30 minutes, but I actually forgot and it sat for about 3 hours, oops. It was slightly dry because of this but I don’t think it affected the outcome at all.
I rolled out each individual piece on floured (GF White Flour) wax paper. Even using the flour the dough stuck slightly, so be liberal with the flour. Then the directions said to brush olive oil on the crust before baking. I oiled one side then put them on the grill and then oiled the other side after they had cooked for a bit. This was my first time grilling pizza and it was a great success. Not without it’s learning curve, but all in all I was happy. I will do a more in depth post on grilling pizza later.
If I was baking this in the oven I probably would have rolled them thinner, but for the grill they need to be a bit thicker, about 1/4 inch I think.
The flavor was great, no aftertaste or grittiness. All six of us thought it was the best box pizza crust mix we have had. I personally, thought it was WAY better than Bob’s Red Mill’s Pizza Crust.
I give this a 5 star rating on all points- taste, ease of use, cost.
