Chebe Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix Review
Chebe Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix
The Chebe gluten free pizza crust mix (found here) really surprised us. It’s not at all what you would expect from a typical gluten free pizza crust mix.
We also tried the Chebe GF bread sticks as well. They are delicious!
What are the Ingredients?
Manioc (tapioca) flour, modified manioc starch (100% manioc), iodine-free sea salt, garlic, onion, oregano
What other ingredients do I need to add to this mix?
Oil, shredded cheese (sharp or hard works best), eggs or egg substitute, water or milk / milk substitute
Note: There is no yeast with this mix nor do you add any.
What size pizza crust does the mix yield?
It makes one 14 inch pizza crust.
What does making this crust mix involve?
You combine the pizza crust mix, oil, shredded cheese, and eggs or egg substitute.
You slowly blend in the exact amount of water or milk / milk substitute.
Knead the dough with your hands until it is smooth. I want to point out that this is the first gluten free pizza crust that you can actually mix with your hands and not have a total mess. I actually felt like I was making normal pizza again.
Place the dough ball on an ungreased baking tray. Press with heel of hand, flipping the dough occasionally, until it covers the tray.
Add the toppings you choose.
Bake the crust for 15-18 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
What was the texture and flavor like?
This pizza crust was soft but chewy. One of our taste testers who doesn’t have problems with gluten and doesn’t normally eat gluten free commented that this pizza is comparable to one of the popular pizzerias, but Chebe is without all the grease and has better flavor. The texture was different than my family has been used to but the flavor is so good with the spices that are in the mix that I had to remind everyone to save room so they could finish sampling the other pizzas.
What are our final thoughts on this pizza crust mix?
Though there was no yeast in the mix it still raised some when baking. It was very easy to make and spread on the pan. It was very quick. There was no waiting for the crust to rise and no pre-baking which made it the easiest and fastest pizza to prepare. The flavor by far won when compared to the other mixes we made. It was chewier than what we have been used to (not a bad thing) overall, very good. On a scale of 1-10 we gave it an average rating of 8.8. We were also thrilled when we found out that Chebe makes a bread stick mix as well and had to try them. They were plump, slightly chewy, and full of flavor. We won't be having pizza without a side of Chebe bread sticks from now on. I'm lovin the gluten free life.
