You know what I miss a TON? Pizza crust. I’ve come to terms with the fact that gluten-free pizza just isn’t the same, but I really really miss the texture of a good, gluten-filled pizza crust. I always used to steal my boyfriend’s pizza crust (he didn’t like it!!!). And have you ever tried those cheese-filled crusts? So delicious.
I am super-excited to tell you about a product from Brazi Bites because now us gluten-free people can enjoy the taste of pizza crust again! Brazi Bites launched this product, commonly known as Brazilian cheese bread (or Pão de Queijo which I assume literally means “Bread of Cheese”, based on my knowledge of French and Spanish (but not Portuguese)) a couple years ago. It was developed from a secret family recipe and is amazingly delicious. After quite a bit of growth in the Pacific Northwest area, they are now being sold at Sprouts. (If you’ve never heard of Sprouts, they’re an awesome grocery store, which I wrote about here).
The original and fire-roasted jalapeno are, by far, my favorite. While the Bacon Cheese Bread Snacks had only a subtle bacon flavor to them, I am not a fan of bacon. I know, it’s un-American of me, but what can I say? The other two are amazing, cheesy, crusty goodness though. It tastes just like I stole them off my boyfriend’s plate. While I’m too lazy to make a dip for these, I think they’d be great with some sort of sauce or dip.
These come frozen, about 20 to a bag. A serving size is only 3 pieces (sadface) and they have about 120-140 calories each. Now, I’m going to tell you the one down side of this product: They have to bake in the oven for 20 minutes! 20 entire minutes before you can eat them! (Luckily, ovens vary, and they cook in my oven in about 16 minutes… phew).
If you don’t have a Sprouts near you, you can buy them online and have them shipped to you. I will warn you that shipping is quite expensive. To ship one bag to Colorado was three times the cost of the product … so hopefully you live near a Sprouts!
