When exactly did gluten become Bad For YouTM? I know some people have legitimate medical concerns, but the vast majority of the population doesn't have such issues -- there shouldn't be guilt associated with eating gluten.

A place I worked at had a BLT pizza that was damn good. Tomatoes and bacon on the pie and then topped with mayo dressed iceberg lettuce. Delicious!

I still don't quite believe most of those people.  Celiac Disease is not that prevalent.  The rest of it is no more a real diet than Atkins is.

Atkins works if you use it properly (meat and green veggies but no sweets or starches), of course if you eat bacon wrapped steaks with no veggies at all it won't do anything good for you.

Beat me to it. It's such a miniscule percentage (I think under 5%) that it's become one of those things that just makes it trendy...it almost seems like it's something someone makes up to sound hipster or something.

Atkins actually pays attentions to macronutrient intake. Gluten is just a molecule found in some plants and some people choose to avoid. They're hardly comparable.

Just as a note: it isn't just Celiac. Gluten intolerance can present as celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis and non-celiac gluten intolerance. Chron's, leaky gut, and other inflammation or autoimmune disorders can be exacerbated by gluten and lectin.

Though I agree in many cases it's a fad, there are well-researched levels of nutritive uptake deficiencies in a fair segment of the population when gluten is in the diet. Whether it's a composite reaction to other dietary items (especially sugar) is still in the early research phase.

This blew the previous largest pizza pie record out of the oven, as the predecessor measured 122 feet in diameter and hailed from South Africa. Oh, and that was made with gluten, so 1990's.

It blew it out of the record so hard they couldn't even provide the diameter of it. Terrible writer.

"People against wheat" is a subset of "people against carbs." Yes, there are still people going on about carbs, especially "pelio" diets.

The logic is: carbs in general are not good for your body's nutrition/energy system, because carbs are cheap sugars (even the whole grains) that spike your blood sugar and turn into fat. On top of that, eating "modern" carb-rich foods are just bad for you, especially wheat, which has lost its nutritional value over the last 50 years of selection for commercial agriculture. Wheat is bad for everyone, even if you don't have gluten issues.

That's the diet trend for now. I put it in TT text because it's not really my idea nor do i practice it, so forgive me if i got something wrong.

Low fat Atkins is a diet and works. It's a less strict version of a protein sparing modified fast, which is used to help obese people lose large quantities of weight quickly for health reasons (and by body builders because they're silly). Just because people suck at modifying their diet to maintain weight loss and suck at properly following diets in general doesn't mean they aren't real.

The pie, magically and masterfully constructed by five Italians chefs, contained 19,800 pounds of flour, 10,000 pounds of tomato sauce, 8,800 pounds of mozzarella cheese, 1,488 pounds of margarine, 551 pounds of rock salt, 220 pounds of lettuce and 55 pounds of vinegar.

I made homemade pizza for dinner, i didnt use any of those things. Am I doing it wrong, or are they?

I would never disparage the humble english muffin pizza. In fact theres sauce and cheese left over, that sounds perfect for lunch tomorrow.

I would also never disparage the humble english muffin pizza or a regular pizza by putting lettuce (spinach doesnt count), vinegar (hot sauce doesnt count) or margarine (those little tubs of garlic flavored transfat that comes with papa johns that someone orders when youre drunk at 3am dont count) on them either.
 
2012-12-20 10:04:25 PM
It kinda makes sense the dough would contain butter or margarine and be gluten-free. Odds are it's a laminated dough specifically suited to be stretched out over a large area with a minimum of hassle. Regular pizza dough is very glutenous and thus very elastic. Trying to stretch out a normal pizza dough over that much space would be a nightmare and a half. Besides, one doesn't go into these sort of endeavors with the taste of the end product as priority #1.

Vinegar?



Gluten free flours (rice, sorghum, etc) tend to be sweeter than wheat flour. You add a little (apple cider) vinegar to get the correct taste.

I plan to experiment with making a gluten-free pizza pretty soon. Right now I'm still working on finding a better gluten-free bread recipe. The one's I've tried are not that great, but better than nothing.

For the past year or so I've been having moderate to severe abdominal pain. Upper GI and CT scans found nothing wrong. After Prilosec did nothing, I tried going gluten-free about a month ago. So far, it has helped quite a bit.

Do I have Celiac or some other gluten sensitivity? I don't know. I didn't feel like going through the biopsy to get a definite diagnosis. For now, I'll keep on the gluten-free diet until it doesn't bring relief.

I thought my sister was just doing the organic/trendy thing until she described her bloating, painful intestinal cramps, rapid heart rate, (mild) shortness of breath, and diarrhea that I used to get with oats in my early 20s until I stopped eating them for 7 years. I have granola and oat bran every morning now, so it's gone for whatever reason, and it was not an actual allergy, but I won't doubt that some folks just don't react well to certain proteins, and they are some variant on allergies that have gotten under the radar for a while. Or our food sucks because the types of wheat or whatever that do well in large commercial production contexts have funky proteins (not to mention the genetically modified crop thing). Actually, our food does suck and has since they moved to non-manure fertilizer at the end of the Depression, but that's the price you pay for low cost and abundance.

Fyi, there is a relatively high incidence of celiac in Italy. It is possible to make a decent pie gluten free. If anyone can do it,the Italians can. They make the best corn based spaghetti. Go figure!

Etc is up with lettuce and vinegar pizza?

My son is on a gluten free diet to see if it helps with what the doctor suspects is a mild intolerance. So I can safely say this: gluten apparently is the molecule that provides flavor to EVERYTHING.

Accidentally grabbed one of his cookies tonight. Pseudo Chocolate flavored sand would taste 1 million times better.

My youngest kid is celiac, so we've gotten into the habit of double checking labels and whatnot. It's not that gluten itself is bad, more that a lot of junk foods and processed foods have some sort of gluten - even stuff that you wouldn't expect, like corn flakes and bean w/bacon soup - generally wheat or malt derivatives as additives

So, to make CSB story short, unless you want to scrutinize labels or pay out the ass for gluten free versions of pizza, pasta etc. you tend to gravitate toward naturally gluten free stuff like rice, veggies, fruit etc and stay clear of doritos, big macs etc. (although McDonalds fries are usually 'safe', esp if you're not hyper allergic and stuff like butter and chocolate can move in as replacement vices :)

betty crocker gf mixes are pretty decent - I even kind of prefer the brownies over 'standard' ones

a lot of the 'gluten free versions of gluten unfree' foods do often have slightly off character - gritty texture or kind of a weird greasy undertone

I had Italian balsamic vinegar on strawberry ice cream tonight, and it was absolutely delicious.

Americans dont know how to use oil and vinegar the way Italians do.
