  1. Having bought the Brazilian cheese breads and pizza bases to cater for my own gluten free diet, I now find that the whole family is devouring them with gusto. The cheese breads are really delicious made with Emmental cheese and make a great accompaniment to any meal. The pizza bases are really quick and easy to prepare and have a wonderful springy texture that is hard to find in gluten free food. Just add your favourite toppings for a real treat. Thanks for providing a delicious new alternative in my gluten free diet.

  2. My husband has recently been diagnosed as coeliac and was disappointed at the bland pizza bases available. Your pizza mix is easy to make and is delicious – I now enjoy them with him and no longer buy separate pizzas for myself. Also, the cheesebreads are easy and delicious.

  3. Dear Isabel, I’m inspired to write to say thank you for the best tasting gluten-free pizza base I have ever tasted! It has such a good texture and is chewy – just like it should be and like I remember it before being coeliac. What a treat and thanks again. When you follow a gluten-free diet you miss so many tastes, textures and flavours from before, good pizza is something I had trained myself not to expect to eat again…but now I am sure I will be trying out lots of different toppings. Getting variety into the diet is a problem so its good news when new products that are this good come onto the market.

  4. I met you in Penrith at the food fair where I purchased your pizza base. My husband has to have a gluten free diet. We’ve hunted for a good pizza base for a long time. Paul says your product is the best he’s tried and probably better than a ‘normal’ (wheat) pizza! Thank you Perhaps we can persuade a local shop to stock your products?

  5. My daughter is 17 and diagnosed with coeliacs for only 15 months. This pizza base is the first ‘normal’ tasting GF food she has had. She said it was so much like normal pizza she totally forgot it was GF – in fact she even asked me to double check the box to confirm it was okay!! praise indeed!!!!

  6. Thin and Crispy Gluten Free Pizza – Yes really! Thanks to the new Pizza Base Mix from Isabel’s Cuisine. This mix was developed by Isabel Gordon in conjunction with Salvos Italian Restaurant in Leeds. We tried it for the first time last week, it was really easy to mix and what’s more it stayed in one piece when we rolled it out. You can then pop it straight in the oven, no need to leave it to rise, for about 20 mins then add your topping and cook for another 5 minutes. We added an egg, but if you have an allergy to eggs you can always use the Orgran Natural Egg Replacer. For our topping we used Meridian Organic Tomato and Herb Pasta Sauce, a few olives, sliced tomato and grated cheese. Of course if you wanted to spice things up a bit you could use the Chilli Sauce instead!

  8. Due to increasing awareness of celiac disease and overwhelming requests from our customers we researched the available options for a gluten and wheat free pizza dough mix. Here at Fratellis quality of ingredients is essential and we tried numerous flour mixes to no avail, non came close to our standard flour mix. Then we were told about the Isabel’s Cuisine mix, Isabel was extremely helpful and the mix is truly amazing. We now are proud to offer all customers new and existing a fantastic alternative with our gluten free Pizza and the response has been nothing short of amazing.

  9. For people who are intolerant to wheat, this pizza mix is a gift from the gods. As an avid pizza fan I could hardly tell the difference between a normal one and Isabel’s pizza mix. And my Wife was in heaven when she had her first pizza for almost eight years.

  10. We’ve spent over a year developing a base that tastes like pizza should, explains co-owner Gip Dammone, we tried the mixes and frozen bases already on the market, but none came up to scratch. The solution turned out to be Isabel’s Brazilian bread know-how. Now we are able to offer gluten pizzas which we are really proud of and tastes like pizza should.

  11. I would just like to say that the pizza bases were brilliant. Since then my girlfriend (she of the wheat intolerance) ordered about 5 or 6 boxes, because we love them that much. We just wanted to say thank you on top of that as you put a couple of packets of Cheese breads in there too. Not only is this excellent in terms of customer relations and generally a lovely touch but they were also fab. We served them at a BBQ recently and they went down extremely well.

  12. My wife is able to get pizza bases on prescription but they are awful and it was a pleasure to see my wife’s face in Salvos when she tasted yours.

  13. My partner, parents and I have always been impressed by the speedy delivery and the inclusion of other products to sample and are now loyal customers. I have a wheat intolerance and had been craving bread and pizza for a very long time. Your products are the only ones I have ever tasted that match up to the ‘real thing’ and it is even nicer to be able to share things with my family, rather than have my own ‘wheat-free’ version.

  14. My husband is a Coeliac and misses his “normal tasting” pies and pastries. Although he gets a lot on prescription, eating out and at friends is a problem. We spent the weekend in Bath with our daughter last weekend and she had taken the trouble to buy some of your products on line. The pizza base was fantastic – her dad was MOST impressed – as were the non-coeliac amongst us! The cheese bites were to die for, and the other guests ate them so quickly that we had to save a couple for my husband, who was cooking the BBQ food! Fabulous!

  15. Just to say “thank you” for producing two such wonderful products for coeliacs! I have tried your cheesebreads and pizza base mix and have been amazed. I’m even happier now they are available in my local Waitrose! I will be broadcasting your great products to coeliacs far and wide. Thank you from all of us!

  16. Hi, A few weeks ago I purchased some of your Cheese bread and Pizza base mixes. I have the cheese breads with soup and they are really good. They are also great the following day, I just pop them in a hot oven for a couple of minutes, and have them with ‘too much’ butter but hay.., I deserve it!
    But I am really excited by the Pizza Base mix. I have only recently tried it and was really impressed when handling the dough.., it is just like dough made with wheat flour I can shape it in my hands, spin it in my hands an stretch it, its fantastic!
    The pizza base mix also makes wonderful garlic bread. I make the dough as per the instructions but use one packet to make a single large ‘bread’ about 33 cm diameter. It is very thin, about 1 – 2mm thick, and I shape it so that it has a thicker crust around the edge. I place it on a flat circular steel pizza tray that has 40 evenly spaced 1cm holes in it. I then mix together a couple of teaspoons of crushed garlic and about the same amount of olive oil and a little dried oregano and brush this onto the dough leaving about a 2-3 cm space around the edge.
    I put this into a hot fan oven at 180 0C and bake for about 25 – 30 mins. The edge puffs up and crisps perfectly and the centre has a ‘bubbly’ appearance. The base is nice and crunchy and can be cut into slices with a pizza wheel. My family had this garlic bread last night with some pasta (Mine was GF) that I made and my son, a pizza addict, said “Dad you shouldn’t be eating this it’s got gluten in it’!
    This dough is so different to any other GF dough I have made, in that it can be rolled out so thin and still can be ‘handled’, that I am seriously thinking about trying to make ‘puff pastry’ with it!

  17. Best Pizza base we’ve had by far – tastes “normal”. I made the cheese balls up and froze thim in tin foil dishes in 4’s with garlic butter on top – almost like a Pizza Express gralic ball – near enough for Josh anyway ! 30 mins in oven from frozen ! Brill …..

    5 out of 5

  18. Yes its amazing – elastic and crispy. Use one sachet for two pizzas and roll thinly and press the sides to release air. Amazing product – the best gf invention for a long while.

  19. I would like to congratulate you on the wonderful product the Isabel’s ‘Pizza Base mix’. My husband is a former pizzeria cheif and he knows the art of a great pizza. He has mastered your mix to absolute perfection, right through the preparation to the exact cooking process producing that thin crusty base enabling me to enjoy the perfect flavoursome pizza which I have to say is arguably tastier together with the lovely texture than a conventional gluten based pizza. My diet is restricted due a gluten allergy, I am diagnosed ‘Ceoliac’ so when I discover a recipe to such perfection this is gastronomically refreshing and invigorating so therefore once again applause and offer congratulations to your team.

  20. Dear Team,
    Our eldest son is autistic and on a strict gluten free diet; and I have a wheat intolerance so avoid gluten as well.

    We both love pizza and I have struggled to find a great alternative to the real thing that accommodated our diet. Home made attempts with gluten free flour were not great(!) and whilst shop bought pizzas or pizza bases were OK (some much better than others), it wasn’t until discovering your pizza base mix that we got really excited!

    Making pizza now with your product is a joy, simple – yet with a little poetic license I can almost convince myself I’m cooking from scratch!

    Having found such a great product we wanted to let you know that your pizza base mix is very much appreciated by our family.

    Anyway, thank you very much!

  21. I bought your pizza base mix and used it for the first time last night and I wanted to let you know how pleased I was to finally find a base that doesn’t taste second best!

    It was delicious (and you can’t say that about many GF products!). Good exercise too, kneading the dough! Congratulations! You have a new customer.

    I wish Waitrose sold your products though. From what I have read you seem to be the ideal supplier.

    Thanks again for making my day!

  24. This really is a great product; we have tried gluten-free pizza bases in lots of local restaurants but nothing compares to Isabel’s!
    We’ve found that a full egg in the mix and plenty of cornflour on the worktop make it as good as regular Italian-style pizza dough 🙂

  25. Hi Team,
    My wife and I came across your Isabel’s Pizza base mix,(Gluten Free) by chance at the free from section at Asda and she said give it a go, we are both glad we did as it was very tasty and enjoyable, one of the best we have tasted. We now intend to try a number of your other products, well done.
    Best Regards,

  26. Hi There,
    I’m not sure if you know exactly what you have done. You have created a product which is AMAZING. I tried the pizza base recipe last night after what seemed like an endless quest to find pizza that tastes like pizza. I have tried cauliflower bases, flax seed and chickpea bases, gluten free flour bases etc etc each one not anywhere as good as real pizza.
    I bought the pizza dough pack last night and followed the recipe and scoffed the whole thing and loved every moment of it. I’m always waiting for a gluten attack to hit when i try something new so i was expecting to be woken in the early hours with the usual symptoms and pain. Nothing happened and i slept all the way through. I will never be able to put into words how happy you have made me. I’m now looking at all the other recipes and dreaming about when I can make them.

    Once more please have a big thank you from a gluten suffering pizza lover and another thank you from my wife who needs to put up with me =o).

    If you ever need a guinea pig to test out any new products then please do not hesitate to contact me. Kindest regards

  27. My youngest son is 5 and has multiple disabilities .
    He is on a strict gluten free diet.
    Problematic as my 7 year old son loves pizza .
    I haven’t found a pizza base mix or recipe they like but they LOVE this.
    The little one can’t talk but the smile on his face says it all.
    Thank you!

  28. This mix makes literally the most delicious pizzas i have ever tasted. I use a fiery chilli pesto for the base and a mature cheddar cheese. The perfect Pizza every time!

  29. Our family always enjoys a large dinner together and the menu regularly consists of making your pizza mix. Your products are extremely scrumptious and are always devoured with none left whatsoever. Please keep me updated about your wonderful products.

  30. Dear buyers, please stock Isabel’s naturally free from products, including thin crust Neapolitan pizza base mix, I can’t get hold of this anywhere that I live. Thanks

  31. Please, please, stock more delicious products like Isabel’s. It is surprising how having an unusual product on offer will draw customers; instead of just offering the exact same products available everywhere, go the extra mile and stock products that don’t make up for lack of gluten by packing in sugar, salt, fat, and additives (which is something pre-made gluten free pizzas and pizza bases have become notorious for). Stock something like this, which is delicious and actually good for you!

  32. Absolutely delicious! My daughter has just been diagnosed with coeliac disease and I was dreading finding tasty alternatives for her. However this pizza base is one of the nicest I have tasted – so much nicer than any ready made gluten pizzas – so light and crisp! This will be a regular winner for all the family.Not only that my daughter is called Isabel so she’s extra pleased!

  35. I love all Isabel’s products. I have been recently diagnosed with coeliac disease and and have to eat gluten free foods, I find Isabel’s food range very tasty and I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything.

  36. There is no better pizza mix than Isabel’s – great idea to consult with Salvo’s. Really tasty, lovely bases.

  37. Easy as pie (or pizza!) to make & so good even my non-gluten-free brother wants a slice whenever I make some. Hands down the best pizza base mix I’ve come across, gluten-free or not! I haven’t tried making bagels etc with it yet, but can’t wait to try.

  38. Though every Isabel’s product I’ve tried has been great(can’t wait to try out the doughnuts, by the way!), I especially love the pizza base mix. It’s actually better than the regular pizza we used to use and we have been able to reinstate pizza night. I make some sauce, have an assortment of toppings ready, everyone makes their own favourite and we all settle down to watch a movie! Great pizza and great fun. You can’t beat it!

  39. I love the pizza bases. Being coeliac I missed pizza so much, I tried making my own pizza based but nothing came near the real thing and it was getting me down. KA-POW I found isabel’s and my search finished, it’s so good my wife prefers it to normal bases.

  40. Hello, just completed my second go at making gluten free pizza and i am totally blown away at the result. From start to finish it took less than an hour to make two pizzas that were as good, if not better than anything i have eaten in the past. I never dreamt it possible, so well done.

  41. A great staple to have in the cupboard for if you really need some pizza! Since having to go gluten free, this has been my favourite discovery for keeping at home.

  44. THE best gluten free pizza base, better than Pizza Express. You’d be hard pressed to know it wasn’t a normal flour base.

    5 out of 5

  45. Definately the best gluten free pizza base you can buy, even my wife who is not coeliac thinks these make a great tasting pizza and now prefers them to ‘normal’ pizza.

  46. Isn’t it frustrating when your gluten eating family pinch all your yummy gluten free goodies?! These pizza bases are great, and they make the best naan breads too. Most gf food looks and tastes of cardboard but Isabels free from is different, and is one of my favourite gf brands. Thank you so much.

  49. This pizza base is amazing. Most gluten-free pizza bases can taste like eating cardboard but this is like the best thin-crust pizza you have ever had. My partner Glyn is a pizza addict and he says that this is better than most of the ‘normal’ pizzas he has eaten. I even recommend it on my foodie blog.

  50. 5 stars!

    I had this at a pizza restaurant in Padstow and was so blown away by how good it was, I asked the chef for the recipe – to be told it was this brand. So many people at the restaurant agreed and even people on hearing us rave about it, ordered it, even though they were not gluten intollerant and agreed it was even better than traditional pizza base! SO happy to have found it! Thank you Isabel! ?

  51. I’ve already reviewed the dough balls and Yorkshire pudding mix which i’ve tried and found fantastic. And on the strength of those I ordered quite a few more products.

    So now the pizza mix and having read the reviews i was confident it would be okay but i still proceeded with trepadation. Previous attempts – either from a ready made mix or from scratch have ended in crumbled mixtures that had to be patched up into one piece or just literally thrown away.
    This time, well it was nothing short of miraculous. I’m no cook (as my partner will truly testify) but the dough came together beautifully and i was able to roll it out into a full pizza shape without patch working bits together (i used some gluten free flour on the rolling pin). Without doubt the best GF pizza base i have tried and it was a joy to add the toppings i wanted – you don’t get much choice when buying ready-made GF pizzas. For anyone else trying for the first time, i used tomato & chilli pesto as a base, cooked for a few minutes and then added toppings and back in the oven for around 15 minutes. perfect – thank you Isabel.

  52. This is the best pizza base mix out of all I’ve tried, even the ready made bases don’t come close to this one. but why can’t I buy it in the supermarkets
