Product Review of Glutenfreeda Gluten Free Pizza Wraps; Recipe for Pizza Tortillas

These little pizza wrap is high in price and not worth the money.  I am rating it at 6.  The flavor wasn't great.

I love the convenience of the ever-increasing variety of products in the freezer of many grocery stores that are gluten free. However, I think I will stick with Tortilla Pizza made at home.  These are quick and easy to make, and our kids love them! :)  See the recipe below, which is from page 162 in my cookbook, along with some other great tortilla wraps.

I hope you enjoy it!


Top a corn tortilla with spaghetti sauce, pepperoni or bacon pieces, cheese, and other desired toppings. Put another tortilla on top and fry in small amount of olive oil on both sides until lightly browned and cheese is melted. Cut into pie-shaped pieces and serve warm.

Product Review of Mission Gluten-Free Tortillas

"This quesadilla is the best thing ever! It's something I could walk around in public with...and not be ashamed." :) 

These are the words of our college-age son about a quesadilla he made with Mission Gluten-Free Tortillas.  We were giddy when we tasted these since they look so much like flour tortillas made with gluten.  These tortillas may not be as flavorful as corn tortillas for some recipes, like Quick Chicken Tortillas in my cookbook, but they are great with cheese melted in them.  The texture is good, though slightly gummy (consequently you may want to separate these with paper towels when microwaving since ours stuck together when we microwaved three of them at a time).  The flavor is great, but there is a slight aftertaste. 

I am rating them at 8.5 out of 10.  It is fun to have these tortillas as another option for occasional snacks, even though these tortillas aren't a powerhouse when it comes to nutrients.
