Food Review: Clean Cravings Gluten-Free Crusts

I experimented with a gluten-free diet in college for a variety of reasons. My strongest memory from that period of my life was missing pizza. Crust was a digestive curse. Now if Clean Cravings and its line of crusts had been around, things could have been much different. The brand has created a line of crusts made without wheat, gluten, dairy, casein, yeast, soy, corn, sugar, peanuts, or nightshade vegetables. For folks with food allergies, this is a blessing.

These crusts have a satisfyingly moist and chewy texture, and they're full of nutty flavor with subtle sweetness. Use them to make pizza, top them and serve as appetizers, make sandwiches, cut and toast them and serve with dip, or eat them on their own. As far as gluten-free foods go, I've tried my fair share, and these really do taste good. So far, my favorite way to eat them is to smear on a layer of pesto, sprinkle some mozzarella cheese, and add a slice of tomato. Pop it in the toaster and this savory snack tastes warm and chewy with a hint of crispiness. You can buy a three-pack of five-inch minis for $5.99, or a single 12-inch crust for $7.99 — definitely not cheap, but to avoid stomach cramps and still eat tasty foods, I'd say they're worth it.

No, Asche, it's supposed to be like a pizza crust. Or a flatbread.

Could someone explain to me why someone without a stomach problem (ex. Chrones) would go on a gluten-free diet? I hear it is becoming more popular and I'm not sure why people would stop eating it if it doesn't bother them? Are there health benefits to a gluten-free diet? Thanks!

What is a crust? Is this just a bread end? You're paying $6 for three bread ends?
