I think I will try that brand out myself for pizza crust. Although Udis pizza crust is a staple in my freezer that will be hard to replace. emoticon emoticon

Geowags, it was really good. I think I said, "Oh My Gosh!" out loud after my first bite. I found the Against the Grain products at Whole Foods. The pizza crust wasn't super thick like most Chicago pizza. But It had that buttery cornmeal like crust that I had yet to find in gluten free crusts. I bought the three cheese crust. Delicious! Chicago style pizza is so far my most missed food. :)

I'm from Chicago also and there is a Giordano's within walking distance of my house. It USED to be my favorite pizza but now that I am GF, I can't even go there. I'll have to try one of those pizza crusts, I sure miss Giordano's.

Wow! Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm new to the GF diet and so I'm trying a lot of different products. I've tried Schar which wasn't too bad and Ener-G rice loaf which was absolutely horrible. I just bought a loaf of Udi's from Whole foods and I will try Rudi's too. I've noticed that BRM mixes tend to be a little beany, too. I used their all purpose flour mix for chocolate chip cookies and it was way too beany. However, BRM flour worked well in my peanut butter cookies. I am going to try the BRM bread mix soon. Has anyone tried the Whole Foods brand of GF bread?

I just tried a pizza crust from Against the Grain last night and it was one of the best GF pizza crusts. It reminded me a bit of Giordano's (Yep, I'm from Chicago) because it had a cornmeal taste. Loved it.

My grocery store recently had French Meadow Bakery bread which was better than any I have tried thus far. I am still going to try UDI and Rudi.

BRM = Bob's Red Mill
Their whole grain mix has cocoa in it but if you can;t do bean flours it won't work. Thats the one thing I don;t like about BRM - too much bean flour. But do like supporting local businesses.
Here was something about Bob that was on the local news last night www.katu.com/news/specialreports/115

I've never heard of BRM before. Where do you get it? Do you mean they put cocoa in the whole grain dough? I might like that. But then, I love dark chocolate and chilies!
I looked at the Bob's and they seem to have one of the bean flours in them. I reacted pretty negatively to one of them, and don't know which. So, I've used the Gluten Free Pantry for making slightly sweetened things and for rolls, but if I buy, it's Rudy's when possible.
I also am not as affected as most, so can get away with distant cousins of wheat like spelt. Yet, the nutritionist said not to do Ezechiel bread. I don't like it anyway!

tastewise I LOVE udi's, but I'm so disappointed that they are the same amount of calories as the other bread I was eating (ezekiel) and they are WAY smaller!

I love the new Rudi's multigrain gluten free bread. It is my favorite so far of all the buy in the store breads and it is only 90 calories a slice. I also like to use Pamela's gluten free bread mix and make rolls...I added oats to the mix which gives it a multigrain flavor and lots of fiber. Yum! Smiles Barb

Yeah it kills me to see "vital wheat gluten" right next to all the other flours, including GF ones!

I love Bob's Red Mill! Before I found Udi's I'd use BRM's Homemade Wonderful Bread mix - the loaves would be huge - taller than normal bread but still only the length of the bread pan. I haven't tried the whole grain, just can't bring myself to make bread with cocoa in it.

I used to eat Schar but the loaves were incredibly tiny and incredibly expensive. Then someone told me about Udi's which I like. However, I tried Rudi's and of the 3 it is definitely my favorite. It is more of a "normal" bread size. I have found that all gluten free breads are better toasted and that's the only way I eat them. For those of you who have tried or are going to try making GF bread in a bread maker, I really liked Bob's Red Mill whole grain bread. It's almost like a pumpernickel and it's very dense and flavorful. Some people don't like bread that way but if you want lots of substance and flavor, I recommend making Bob's Red Mill.

George

p.s. JOJO, GF breads are small because it is the gluten in "regular" bread that causes it to rise. On a side note, my sister in law went to the health food store to buy some gluten to add to a whole wheat bread recipe she was making and she was told that they no longer sell gluten because for some people it's poisonous lol.

Yes Rudis is more known for organic gluten bread...but I have to say I was impressed! I thought nothing would compare to Udi's but this has a very "whole grain" flavor I was missing even with Udi's Whole grain...

Cindy, it could've been a bad or old loaf. It was totally edible out of the package just a little drier than I prefer. Like I said it made wonderful stuffing since you want that to be a little dry. if I find it on sale I'll give it a 2nd try.
I think I was a little frustrated too because I kept finding their gluten bread before I finally found their GF bread and was expecting high things.

I mustt say I like both Udi's and Rudy's, and haven't found any problem with them. My GF friend is worried about the buckwheat in the Rudy's whole grain one. She wonders if the organic, in a GF bread would be different from just buying some.
If I don't mind toasting it, I also like Kinnikinnick whole grain. It is better toasted than plain, and you get more. I like that brand of buns and English muffins. Each muffin can be sliced into 4 thin slices.

I am torn between Rudi's and Udi's. I just tried Rudi's today and really liked the wholegrain one. I didn't find it dry at all. I though one batch of Udi's I had was dry maybe it was a bad batch Jenn.

Udi's all the way for me. Here's a store locator udisglutenfree.com/stores and there's a $1 off coupon you can print off too.
Some people prefer Rudi's - I found it drier and it made an excellent stuffing.
