  1. And the cheesy dough ball mix are just amazeballs! My teenage daughter now no longer misses garlic dough balls, these satisfy her a treat. Her friends request the pizza base as well – saying it’s way better than a ‘normal’ pizza. Happy days!

  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Having to eat gluten free & being a vegetarian we often miss out on yummy things until I came across your dough balls. AMAZING!!!! Not only are they low in fat but also no maize which a lot of coeliacs can not eat although it is in many gluten free options. Thank you & hope your range continues to grow with loads more gorgeous things.

  5. Please, I need to know! Don’t tell me you’re not doing the cheese bread mix anymore 🙁 It disappeared from Ocado and I could not find it here in the website either. It was the best mix ever. Please don’t stop it!

  6. “…..just one more, no I couldn’t possibly, …..oh go on then”

    Again, as with all of Isabel’s products, they are so easy to make, and are so tasty, far too tasty, dangerously tasty!

    I’ve said this before, but one of the greatest things about Isabel’s products is they work, no fuss, no bother, they always work.

    24 dough balls in one sitting, not just me, but the whole of the family had a few, ……I had more than a few though.

    Next time I am going to try this mix to make an Italian style flatbread, a slipper / Ciabatta type, I think it will work wonderfully.

  7. Picked the dough ball mix up at Olympia.
    I am not a cook by any means, but thought that I could manage this.
    Very pleased with the results. Nice taste with a blob of butter or jam inside.
    Mine do not swell to twice the uncooked size as the recipe says, so am not doing something right.
    However am happy with the result.
