Gluten-Free Friday: Three Bakers Hoagie Rolls

I recently got the opportunity to try Three Bakers products thanks to a referral from Pam over at I'm a Celiac - after reading her review, I very eagerly said yes when they reached out!  One of the products I was very eager to try was the hoagie rolls that Pam talked about - French bread pizzas are one of my favorite quick meals, and I haven't had much of an opportunity to enjoy them lately since gluten-free baguettes are hard to come by here in Vero Beach.

So, of course the first meal I had to plan with them after they arrived was French bread pizzas!  I stored the rolls in the freezer, so I pulled them out and let them sit on the counter for an hour or so before slicing them in half lengthwise - there was a perfect little ridge that was an excellent guiding line for slicing.  I topped them with tomato sauce and shredded Italian cheese, then baked them in our toaster oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, until the cheese was brown and bubbly.

They came out so well!  The bread was dense enough to be a good base for a pizza, and nice and chewy.  Even gluten-eating Hubs gave it his approval - and he's super picky since he can eat real bread and pizza!

My only recommendation would be if you make these pizzas, put them straight on the rack or just on top of a piece of foil - I put them on our toaster oven pan and they didn't get quite as crispy on the bottom as I think they would have without it.  

Three Bakers products can be purchased in their online store, or use their store locator to find them in a retail store near you.  I was very excited to see they are carried in lots of health food stores in towns just south of Vero Beach, like Fort Pierce, Port St. Lucie and Jupiter - I definitely plan to seek them out on the way back from our next trip down to Palm Beach Gardens and stock up.

I also got the opportunity to try their stuffing mix - review coming next week!

  1. My favorite was the whole grain white bread. Hubs & I both didn't like the ancient grains bread (I think that's what it was called? ) the last I have to try is the hoagie rolls! I can't wait to figure out what I want to do with them!! These french bread pizzas look awesome though!

    2. Carrie - did you try the rye style bread? It's really good. It has a cult following on the 3B Facebook.

    3. Thanks, I will have to look for the whole grain white! Hubs is all about the GF sandwich bread these days since I won't let him contaminate my toaster oven :)
