Schär’s gluten-free Pizza –
Schär’s gluten-free frozen pizza is really good and, in the opinion of some non-coeliacs who have tasted it, it’s better of many frozen pizzas with gluten.
It’s gluten-free, egg-free and there is also a lactose-free version. They have 2 types: salami and Margherita (in Italy there is also with ham and mushrooms). In the website is announced that it will soon be available a Veggie Pizza with vegetables.
A few months ago they changed the recipe and have further improved; it was good before, but now they have improved the dough and the crust around it’s really good and crisp.
Their mozzarella is not particularly tasty (both in the normal version, that in the lactose-free one), then, to make it even more appetizing, you can add a little more mozzarella cheese. Beware though, mozzarella always releases some liquid in baking, that will make your pizza a little softer; good care wrings the mozzarella before put it on the pizza.

I always buy the Margherita, I prefer to add other ingredients on top by myself, given that the ones they add on frozen pizzas aren’t so good.
I often make the pizza in this way: I add a bit of mozzarella and a little olive oil flavored with hot pepper, bake at 220°C for 7 minutes, then add ham, salame or other and let bake another 2 minutes.
Also, the mini-pizzas are good, they have recently changed the recipe. At first, they were higher and fluffy, but now they are more thin and crispy, but still good.
