Chebe Pizza Crust Mix -- 7.5 oz
Awesome gluten free crust
I have tried to make my own pizza crust with various ingredients including cauliflower and nothing has ever turned out that great so I decided to try this crust out.
I used a mix of tomato and basil cheddar cheese and some Parmesan. I could have probably worked the dough a bit more, but it was fine in the end...I just had to bake it a bit more to crisp it up.
The texture was a bit chewy but with that cheese combination, it was wonderful! I made mine with smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers, tomatoes and cucumber.
I have another box so I will try a different cheese blend to see if it turns out any different. The possibilities are endless!

Not bad, could use improvement.
The flavour was decent, however the instructions seem way off base. The amount of water called for was definitely not enough. It also recommends just putting the toppings on top of the raw crust and baking. This left a quite soggy crust after baking. This could have turned out much better if it was prebaked for awhile and then flipped before putting on the toppings. They also suggest NOT greasing the pan and it sticks like crazy if you don't grease it.
Another think I found a bit ridiculous was the amount of mix provided was just "barely" enough to cover the pan and it was a very skinny crust. Are they so cheap that they can't provide a couple extra teaspoons of the mix so your crust doesn't have to be see through? This mixture is also very sticky and you need to grease your hands in order to spread it on the pan.
OK, but other mixes are much better.
Probably wouldn't buy again.

Great pizza crust!
I have been using chebe products for a while now and absolutely love them. After much trial and error, I have the following suggestions:
1) Make sure to knead the final product really well until it's no longer sticky and is stretchy like bread dough. It took me a while to figure out that it actually can make it to that stage, which is much more manageable than the sticky stage. This actually applies to any of Chebe's mixes.
2) I lay a silicone baking mat on a standard size cookie sheet, then spread out the dough almost to the edges of the silicone mat. I'm sure you could do it without the mat, but I like it because it guarantees no sticking. If you don't use a mat, you may be able to skip step 3 since it may cook faster directly on the metal.
3) Put a rack in your oven on the lowest spot and bake the pizza on that. The crust won't get firm enough to hold as a slice in your hand unless it's baking from the bottom. I generally check it and cook for a couple extra minutes if needed.
4) When it comes out of the oven, gently lift a short side of the pizza up and slide the baking mat out from under it so that you can cut the pizza directly on the metal and not cut the mat in the process.

Great gluten free crust!! It says it's optional to put cheese in the crust, but it makes it easier to mix if you do. I also make the crust thin so its crispy.

Crusty, chewy, deliciousness
The best glutenfree crust out there hands down! Little more work than a frozen or that paper thin brand but so so good!
