Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakehouse: Pie Crust

By | Sep 7, 2011

wholefoodsbakehouseGluten-free pie crusts are far from easy to make even with a mix. Even harder than making one from scratch, is finding one ready to use.  So of course I was pleased to discover that ready to bake,  gluten-free frozen pie crust are available at Whole Foods Market as part of their Gluten free Bakehouse line. Though this is not really a new product is was the first time I had tried it and well worth a review.

You can find them exclusively at your local Whole Foods Market in the gluten-free freezer section along with other frozen gf bakery options. They are sold in packs of two and are priced similar to many of the gluten-free pie crust mixes found in the same store. The price seems very reasonable when it is for a pre-made gluten-free pie crust.

The crust themselves are very thick and the overall flavor was pretty close to what you might expect from any pre-made frozen pie crust. Though they don’t brown as easily as a traditional pie crust, they do taste a bit buttery and are plenty flakey with out breaking apart too much, so I can’t really complain. I thought they worked perfectly as a pie crust for sweet fruit pies; though I have read a few reviews that indicated using the pie crust for non-dessert purposes may result in a slightly saltier or crust flavor sweeter depending on the ingredients used. With autumn right around the corner and the holiday season trailing right behind it, these easy and relatively affordable gluten-free pie crusts will definitely come in handy.

    Are the Bakehouse gluten free pie crusts available in St. Louis? If not when will they become available? I visit your store in Brentwood, MO frequently and was not able to find them.

    I’m really glad you reviewed this, I have a friend with Celiacs and we’re celebrating our first Thanksgiving together and I was prompted to bring my hearty pumpkin pie but I was unsure whether or not I could find a crust or crust mix to accomodate her dietary restrcition. Thanks again for this review.
