Pillsbury is offering three new gluten free refrigerated dough options in tubs in your grocer’s refrigerator case.

The ingredients aren’t listed on their site, and I haven’t found them yet in the store locally, but one quick look at the Pillsbury online gluten free recipes will give you a glimpse at how convenient these doughs may be!

From their Facebook page: “We have a limited national release scheduled for the end of May – and then a wider distribution starting in August. ”

    I just baked a pie with the Pillsbury crust and was so disappointed. It is so fat-laden that the cookie tin I’d placed under the fruit pie to catch any fruit that boiled over was actually loaded with melted fat. It was chewy not flakey and sat in our stomachs like a lead weight. Won’t try this again, but I’m glad the big companies are trying at least. I’ll stick with my homemade crust that includes buckwheat.

    Ok gang, I have heard plenty of negatives on here and am truly dissapointed. Gluten Free is a way of living/eating so that you dont become ill from what you are eating. Using GF living for dieting purposes is not living Gluten Free, it’s dieting. Dieting by its nature is full of challenges and limitations that go well beyond GF eating. As such, complaining that Pillsbury is using GMO’s, uses too much fat, isn’t making these items as healthy as they can be is totally missing the point. Like Donna said, these are DESERT and PIZZA items! And by the way, for those of you that have tried to make your own GF pie crust, what was the best way to bind that crust so that it didn’t fall apart? FAT! Gluten is a binder. When mixed with water or a soluable it becomes sticky and binds other solids together. When you remove that binder, it must be replaced with something, otherwise you won’t have pie crust, you will have pie crumbles. So if you are going to complain about a product, please at least educate yourself enough to know what you are saying and not spoil it for the rest of us that are extatic about these larger companies at least trying to help those of us out that need to live without that extra binder.

    I tried the Pilsbury GF Pizza Crust last night. I actually found this page by doing a Google search for reviews. I wanted to see if others thought it was as awful as I did, or if maybe it was just me…or maybe there were tips on how to cook it (other than the package directions) that would have made it less awful.

    I greased the pan and my hands as the package said, and didn’t think I used too much, but the crust was super greasy in the end. I’ve had greasy pizza before and not minded it (I mean come on, it’s pizza…), but when you pair it with the dense, chewy, tasteless crust, it was awful. It just sat there on the pan all heavy, then sat there in my stomach all heavy. I’m glad I only made a cheese pizza to try the crust out instead of something with more toppings…that would have been more of a waste.

    Thankfully, I was able to try this on sale and got it pretty cheap (about $2). If I can get it for that price again, I may try it in the future…as long as I can search around and get tips from others who have tried and and found the secret to making it edible.

    Glad the major companies are getting on board and offering choices for those of us who can’t have gluten. I LOVE pizza and would love to be able to throw one together with ready-made dough when time is short. Maybe some day, that will be an option. For now, I’ll stick with Chebe pizza dough mix. It’s the best GF pizza dough I’ve found so far…tastes decent enough, and is easy to work with. Add an extra egg, and it’s even better.

    For those of you complaining about it not being super-healthy, FYI…Pilsbury doesn’t seem to be marketing this under “health food”…nore are they a health food company…they just seem to be marketing it under GLUTEN FREE. Gluten free is not another term for “healthy”…it’s just a term used to describe food that doesn’t have gluten. When you share your reviews, keep that in mind. Now, it’s fine to say it doesn’t fit what you’re personally looking for because you prefer XYZ in your foods overall…but if the company isn’t marketing it as XYZ…oh well. It’s not a failure on their part that it doesn’t meet that criteria.

    So, is it GF? Yes. Does it taste like good? Heck no. So…they’ve got it 50% right.

    I use the pie crust and i do not make the crust thick and i have learned to not grease the pans
    If its thin it works great an tastes good

    Look, cookies made without flour will never taste like Grandma’s. However, the cookie dough from Pilsbury is not bad at all. And compared to no cookies it’s awesome.

    Was amazed to see one of the large companies offering gluten free dough. I tried all three varieties. The chocolate chip cookies were OK. Their not Toll House,but tasty enough to be a treat. The pizza dough, was stiff and bland,but makes a great foundation round for an open face sandwich,that flavour can be enhanced with toppings and the pie crust did well as a deep dish cherry pie. I did not find it fatty. The crust favoured the filling flavour and was enjoyable. I do not approach these products as replacments to the wheat products my taste buds, know and love so well. These products are canvases to create gastronomic adventures to help me survive the inflammation reeking havoc on my health. Got to let go of the comfort flavours, this is the ‘re-education of taste buds, like learning to like “Tab”,back in the 70′s. These products are do able with the Added benefit of convenience. Hopefully,will improve in future.

    My 8 yr old daughter has been Celiac, gluten free for one year and to have her ask me to bye the cookie dough (from pillsbury) after trying already made or homemade is a relief. Its cheaper and easy to make. Anything to make her new life of food choices more tasty and her tummy not unhappy, I’m happy. Thank you
