D'une manière plus générale, la liberté de conscience qui englobe la liberté de religion [ 1 ] est garantie par l'État et l'individu est libre d'exprimer ses opinions au sujet de toute idéologie religieuse, philosophique ou politique.
Cette liberté est appelée liberté d'expression. L'organisation familiale occidentale repose sur le modèle de la famille nucléaire , directement héritière de la société romaine dans laquelle le couple monogame était à la base de la structure familiale. Selon les époques, ce couple monogame a pu être exclusivement hétérosexuel période médiévale ou à la fois homosexuel et hétérosexuel Rome antique [ 2 ] , époque contemporaine.
L' Occident draine des flux migratoires depuis l'époque romaine, ce phénomène s'est intensifié depuis les années entrainant une augmentation de la diversité culturelle. La société occidentale se retrouve dans les anciennes colonies telles que les États-Unis , le Canada , l' Australie , la Nouvelle-Zélande , la plupart des pays de l' Amérique Latine et l' Afrique du Sud. Elle se retrouve également dans la région des Balkans mélangée avec les sociétés orthodoxes et islamiques, et influence la société japonaise [ 4 ].
La tendance slavophile est de considérer la culture soviétique comme un cas particulier pour des raisons historiques, tandis que la tendance occidentaliste estime qu'il n'y a pas de différence significative entre la culture russe et la culture occidentale. Les particularités historiques de la Russie sont son rôle de moteur de l' Église chrétienne orthodoxe , et le régime politique communiste depuis la révolution bolchévique en jusqu'à la chute de l' URSS en [ 5 ].
Les colons sont arrivés sur le territoire, et ont recherché à dominer les populations autochtones, obtenir le contrôle politique, économique et culturel - souvent de force, de manière illégitime ou trompeuse [ 7 ].
Les valeurs, la science, l'histoire, la géographie et la culture occidentale étaient utilisées par les colons comme base de comparaison pour prendre connaissance des populations des pays colonisés et de leur population. Ces valeurs, insinuées dans les écoles, les gouvernements et les médias sont devenues une manière dont les colonisés ont pris connaissance d'eux-mêmes. Et ces valeurs et cette façon de voir le monde, bien plus difficile à renverser qu'une gouvernement, ont subsisté après la décolonisation [ 9 ].
Dans certaines régions colonisées de l' anglosphère , notamment les États-Unis, le Canada, l'Australie, la Nouvelle-Zélande et l'Afrique du Sud, les descendants des colons, des immigrés et des esclaves se sont retrouvés en supériorité numérique sur les populations autochtones, qui ont alors été marginalisées. Dans ces sociétés où les colons ont apporté leur langue, leur culture et leurs lois, la population locale a ensuite développé ses propres structures économiques et politiques, et développé une identité basée sur la coexistence de plusieurs cultures et le métissage.
Puis cette identité a été à l'origine de l'obtention - parfois de force - de l'indépendance vis-à-vis du pays colonisateur [ 8 ] , [ 10 ]. Depuis la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale , les pays colonisateurs se sont centrés sur leurs activités intérieures de leur pays, plutôt que les activités extérieures dans les territoires colonisés.
N'étant alors plus d'une importance capitale pour leur économie, de nombreux territoires colonisés ont été rendus à la population locale. Remis à leur sort, les anciennes colonies, souvent très pauvres, ont dû se constituer un gouvernement solide et fiable tout en luttant contre la corruption et l'instabilité. Plusieurs pays ont échoué dans cette mission, aboutissant à une guerre civile: Cambodge , Afghanistan , Nigeria , Congo , ou Birmanie [ 11 ]. La société occidentale est matérialiste et hédoniste - tournée sur le bonheur et le bien-être personnel [ 3 ].
Ses fondations sont la sécularisation, le capitalisme, le marché libre et la modernité [ 12 ]. Partir du passé pour aller vers le futur est une dynamique centrale de la société occidentale, et la liberté est considérée comme une chose à laquelle tout un chacun a droit.
Des écrivains qui ont promu une société démocratique, libérale, séculaire, rationnelle, équitable et humaniste dont les valeurs fondamentales sont la liberté, l'égalité, la justice, le bonheur et le progrès [ 13 ]. Le rationalisme donne la souveraineté à la connaissance acquise par raisonnement, au profit des dogmes et des à priori.
L'humanisme est un anthropocentrisme réfléchi qui met en valeur l'humain, et une vision du monde dans laquelle l'humain a la possibilité de se réaliser par les seules forces de la nature. L'hédonisme, quant à lui, est une doctrine qui met en valeur les loisirs et incite le citoyen au plaisirs. En particulier des jeux, des spectacles, des soins du corps, des repas et des fêtes [ 17 ].
La sécularisation est un processus de libération, dans lequel l'individu acquiert une certaine autonomie vis-à-vis de la religion, prend en main sa destinée, et obtient le droit de penser, de juger indépendamment du religieux. Une société sécularisée devient autonome sur le plan politique, moral et scientifique et élabore ses propres lois plutôt que d'être régie par des lois sacrées [ 18 ].
Dans un régime politique démocratique l'État, porteur du pouvoir politique, est un instrument de médiation au service de la population. L'individu a une place centrale, et c'est à lui que revient la gestion de sa destinée individuelle et collective [ 19 ]. La structure de la société occidentale est marquée par la modernisation, qui implique industrialisation, urbanisation, usage accru des écoles et des médias, croissance économique, mobilité, transformations culturelles, développement politique et économique, mobilisation sociale, intégration et transformation des relations internationales.
Cette structure a été façonnée par la réforme, les révolutions nationales, la révolution industrielle, et la guerre froide [ 20 ]. Dans la société occidentale, les projets futurs sont une dynamique centrale de la société. La société est orientée sur le contrôle rationnel et déterministe de l'environnement naturel et social et chaque individu est un moteur de ce processus.
Être moderne c'est de savoir que le destin de toute chose est de finir dépassée [ 21 ]. À la modernité est associée la notion du progrès: La modernité offre l'espoir du progrès, de la civilisation et de l'émancipation, et est indissociable de la nostalgie, du déracinement, de la fragmentation et de l'incertitude.
Héritage du siècle des lumières , la responsabilité d'aller vers un futur meilleur va de pair avec la nature humaine considérée comme éternelle et absolue [ 21 ]. Certains produits culturels ou technologiques sont couramment qualifiés de moderne: Ces objets, reconnus comme porteurs de modernité suggèrent que la modernité est plus un fait culturel qu'une période de l'histoire [ 21 ].
La modernisation est un pilier de la société occidentale. La révolution industrielle a non seulement formé mais accéléré la modernisation en étroite collaboration avec l'idéologie occidentale, les systèmes économiques, politiques et financiers. En même temps des problèmes sociaux et économiques tels que surpopulation , épuisement des ressources naturelles et détérioration de l' environnement naturel apparaissent et ont tous pour origine l'avancée de la science et la technologie.
L'humain, qu'il soit sage, cupide, ou violent, se retrouve aux commandes de machines qui accroissent ses capacités et permettent de façonner la nature selon ses attentes et à son image [ 22 ]. Ces machines sont utilisées dans les entreprises, les milieux scientifiques, l'administration publique et de nombreuses familles. De nombreuses entreprises déclarent être devenues dépendantes de ces machines qui sont également utilisés dans les milieux scientifiques pour accélérer la recherche et le progrès [ 22 ].
La liberté est une valeur forte dans la culture occidentale, et le mot est utilisé comme slogan dans le discours politique et économique. En occident la liberté est considérée comme quelque chose de naturel, quelque chose que chaque être humain recherche, du simple fait qu'il est un humain.
Comparativement, en dehors de l'Occident la liberté est une valeur loin d'être souhaitable, face à d'autres valeurs de bien plus grande importance telles que l'honneur, la gloire, la piété ou l'harmonie avec la nature, à tel point que le mot liberté n'existe pas dans certaines langues. Dans les langues du Japon et de la Corée , le mot liberté est emprunté du chinois, et a le sens péjoratif de l'absence de règles, la dérobade et l'égoïsme [ 23 ]. Dans la société occidentale il existe une entente générale sur la valeur de la liberté, mais de nombreux désaccords concernant sa définition, qui s'articule autour des libertés personnelles, de la souveraineté et des droits civiques:.
Les sociétés suisses, suédoises et américaines sont particulièrement attachées à ces trois facettes de la liberté [ 23 ]. De nombreux historiens citent la civilisation grecque comme étant à l'origine de certains aspects de la liberté, notamment la démocratie et la sécularisation des polis — les villes-états de Grèce antique.
La liberté, notion d'origine grecque, était une valeur appréciée des Romains, qui l'ont répandue dans tout leur empire — en Europe de l'Ouest. Plusieurs siècles plus tard, au Moyen Âge, lors de la montée du christianisme , ce sont encore les Romains qui l'ont répandu, en remodelant la religion chrétienne de manière à en faire la seule religion du monde qui fait passer la liberté comme un point central de sa théologie [ 23 ]. Les Occidentales ont joué un rôle prépondérant dans la mise en valeur de la liberté.
Dans les sociétés occidentales, Le gouvernement contrôle les institutions militaires, légales, administratives, productives et culturelles, tandis que la société civile est composée de collectivités privées contrôlées par des volontaires et régulées par le marché libre: La société civile dépend de l'économie, dont la vitalité permet la création de collectivités.
La liberté d'association crée des liens entre les individus et évite l'aliénation et la désorganisation dans cette société propice à l'individualisation, la compétition et la solitude [ 20 ]. Plusieurs aspects du marché libre tels que le matérialisme, le consumérisme et la richesse sont devenus une quasi religion dans les sociétés occidentales [ 12 ].
D'une manière générale, la vitalité économique des pays d'Europe de l'Ouest était élevée et la croissance économique était forte entre et , puis les pays ont connu chacun de leur côté un ralentissement de la croissance, voire une décroissance dès à la suite des chocs pétroliers.
Le Danemark , la Norvège et le Royaume-Uni , qui possèdent leurs propres puits de pétrole, s'en sont mieux sortis. L'analyse du taux d'emploi des différents pays de l'Europe de l'Ouest révèle des disparités: Les régions à forte vitalité économique sont les alentours des villes de Hambourg , Bruxelles , Paris , Darmstadt , Vienne et Munich , et la vitalité est la plus faible au Portugal , en Grèce et au Sud de l' Espagne [ 20 ].
Un des signes de changement depuis est l'apparition de la société de consommation et le déplacement vers les milieux urbains. Le nombre de personnes travaillant dans l'agriculture a fortement diminué. Quelques années plus tard le secteur de l'industrie décline alors que se développe le marché des services [ 24 ]. Les changements sur le marché du travail ont permis aux personnes des basses classes sociales d'acquérir des biens autrefois uniquement propriétés de la classe moyenne: Les changements ont également amené une augmentation des salaires, et une diminution du temps de travail, ce qui a ouvert la voie au marché des loisirs.
Les faits de culture populaire tels que la musique, le sport et les médias sont devenus objets de commerce, et se sont développés les concerts, les événements sportifs et le tourisme de masse [ 24 ]. Le symbole le plus visible du changement de la société est l'automobile: Les régimes politiques démocratiques d'Europe de l'Ouest sont fondés sur une compétition de partis politiques: Les partis recherchent à obtenir le soutien de la population leur permettant de recruter des membres pour l'assemblée nationale; le collectif qui exerce le pouvoir en commun avec d'autres institutions [ 20 ].
Tous les pays d'Europe de l'Ouest font appel à des partis politiques comme intermédiaires entre le peuple et le gouvernement. Les personnalités recrutées par les partis, responsables des décisions politiques nationales, ont un impact majeur sur la société.
Même des petits pays comme la Suisse passent par des intermédiaires. Le régime politique de ce pays permet aux habitants de prendre des décisions politiques sans passer par les partis, cependant telle procédure est trop lourde pour être utilisée pour la totalité des décisions gouvernementales [ 20 ].
Dans la politique de masse de l'Europe de l'Ouest, les partis politiques sont mis en concurrence par les avis secrets de chaque votant au suffrage universel. Les divergences d'opinion sont relevées par les votes et sont à l'origine de l'organisation politique de la nation. Il existe des divergences entre les propriétaires du capital entrepreneurs, patrons et les ouvriers, les institutions religieuses et judiciaires - tous deux auteurs de normes sociales, les acteurs des secteurs primaires et secondaires - localisées en régions citadine et campagne, et la culture dominante et les minorités ethniques, linguistiques ou religieuses.
Le développement d'une société industrielle à l'intérieur d'une société rurale peut également créer des divergences d'opinion dans la population, qui se reflètent dans les résultats des votes démocratiques [ 20 ]. Le christianisme est une composante importante de la société occidentale [ 3 ]. Les idées apportées par la religion chrétienne sont la vie après la mort, Dieu , le diable , le paradis , l' enfer et le péché. Dans la société occidentale, les sujets dans lesquels l'apport de l'Église est reconnu et accepté ou critiqué selon les avis sont relatifs à l'éthique et à la société: En plus des activités de culte et des fêtes, les institutions religieuses chrétiennes célèbrent des rites de passage lors de la naissance, le mariage, ou la mort.
Selon le European Value Survey , la majorité des occidentaux estiment que les rites de passage sont importants, tout particulièrement les rituels de mariage et de décès. Pour certaines personnes, l'activité religieuse consiste uniquement à participer aux rites de passage et aux fêtes religieuses [ 25 ]. À la suite de la réforme protestante à et à la philosophie des lumières , la religion n'occupe plus une place centrale telle que celle qu'elle occupait par le passé, ou celle qu'elle occupe dans la société islamique [ 3 ].
Ce procédé de sécularisation se caractérise par une idéologie centrée sur l'individu, l'autonomie et le choix personnel. La société occidentale considère la religion comme un choix personnel, et l'activité religieuse ou spirituelle n'est pas une obligation [ 12 ]. Comparativement dans la société islamique, la foi prime sur le matérialisme, et l' islam sert de base pour le code civil, pénal, et le code de conduite personnel des croyants, dans une situation comparable à celle qui existait dans la société occidentale du Moyen Âge [ 3 ].
La fréquentation des églises et des lieux et culte a fortement baissé entre et Could you try asking the manufacturers of your preferred brands to confirm whether or not they used flour in their ground spices? But why not buy the spices and grind them yourself?
That way you could be sure they were not mixed with flour to bulk them out, and they would be really fresh. Pure spices are naturally gluten free. Hi Karinah — thanks for your comment. I suggest you give it a month to see if you get any benefit, and do come back and let us know how you got on! I have been living with hives for the last 19 years. I wake up with them and I go to bed with them. Over the years they have tried everything and nothing works. I have thyroid problems and have had it removed as well in thinking that it is the cause of the hives.
I went on the south beach diet. I ate nothing but veggies. I went from pounds to pounds and was hive free for two years. Then I started eating bad things again and put the weight back on. I am now. Infact within the last 2 weeks I have been in the ER with hives in my throat.
Just wanted to know what you think. They have also made my thyroid meds with gluten free and I have started that a week ago. I think there may well be a link between gluten and hives, and there do seem to be a number of studies that show this.
Have you seen this post from Gluten Free Mommy? Is it definitely hives, or might it be dermatitis herpetiformis? I hope that they manage to find out exactly what it is so you can do something about it — and from what you say, going gluten free helped, whatever the eventual diagnosis turns out to be.
Do let us know how you get on. The diet is intimidating me since I have a family with 3 small children. What about natural flavors? Thanks for ALL you do!! It is difficult to organise a gluten free diet for one member of a bigger family, but it can be done. We have one coeliac out of five of us — so sometimes we all eat gluten free, and sometimes I cook two dishes. So it just means something extracted from some plant, fish, bird or animal, or from any of their products, and used to flavour food, rather than as an important nutritional element of the food so not a whole chicken breast, for example!
FSIS regulation requires that animal or vegetable proteins must be specifically identified in the ingredient statement on the labels. The source of the protein must also be disclosed. And spices sometimes have flour in, as a carrier, although pure spices are naturally gluten free. Your best bet is probably to contact the manufacturer to ask, if there is a product in particular you are worried about. Has he had blood tests or a biopsy?
That said, though, you want to know how to manage the diet. I know it is daunting, but it can be done. Start with simple foods — plain chicken, fish, potatoes, rice, vegetables and fruit… Did your doctor give you a prescription for gluten free foods, such as bread?
Getting Started What will I Eat? I have not been diagnosed with ceoic however i have gone on a gluten free diet. For the last 20 years! I have felt tired all the time dark circles under eyes , depressed and bloated very easily this coupled with headaches and not being able to concentrate in lessons. I have researched and since the diet I feel alive and awake,active. I orignally thought I was aneomic …. There definitely is a link between being anaemic, feeling tired all the time, being depressed, headaches, inability to concentrate and coeliac disease, though obviously there might be another explanation.
She has gone from a very poorly child who just lay around all day and was loosing weight rapidly to having a smile and actually played in the last few days!! They are here favourite thing and would be good to get clarity on them? Hope you can help?
As for Kraft Dairylea triangles: Therefore, it has been a long standing policy for all Kraft and Nabisco products to list ingredients that contain gluten on the ingredient statement.
These items will be listed using commonly known terms such as Wheat, Barley, Oats or Rye. For other ingredients that contain gluten, the grain source will be declared in parenthesis after the ingredient name. Other ingredients that contain gluten are: For Kraft-branded products that contain vinegar, information from our vinegar suppliers assures us that the vinegar we use in our products is gluten free.
All vinegar is distilled and through the distilling process protein gluten is removed. If you have additional questions about your personal dietary needs, please consult your doctor or a registered dietician. There is quite a lot of things she can eat, and it is getting easier all the time. Look at the list above, and work out what she likes to eat. Basically, the less processed the food the better, and the healthier it is anyway! Are you in the UK?
If so, contact Coeliac UK for advice, and also try some of the food available on prescription — or some of the gluten free food available in the supermarkets, in the free from sections.
Am about to try going gluten- and dairy-free. Thanks for the very helpful and extensive information you provide. Do you know what the South African equivalent is of? Pure — that was the word that was missed out in my comment, sorry not sure why! Is there something similar in SA? I looked on the Vegan South Africa site http: Does anybody else know?
My doctor believes it could be due to gluten intollerant. I live in Canada and apparently here to test for CD is really expensive and I would have to pay for it myself because it is not covered. So my Doctor suggested that I cut Gluten out of my diet for a month and see if my problems go away. Do you suggest this is something I do or is it really important that I get the test done? It sure is going to be a struggle…. Has your doctor told you how much they would cost?
There are usually two stages of testing, first a blood test and then a biopsy. There might even be a local contact for you to ask. I hope this helps. Will you want to do that? Will having a definite diagnosis one way or the other make a difference? Thank you so much for all the info. And I was thinking, if the Gluten free diet solves my problems, then I guess it does not really matter wether I am gluten intollerant or have CD…either way the outcome is a gluten free diet.
I know my usual beers are out of the question. Once again I Thank you for all your help.. Was wondering, roughly how long does it take for the symptoms to go away after you start a gf diet? Does going on a Gluten-free diet take out all the Barley? My daughter is allergic to barley and that is in pretty much everything. Everytime I look up Barley-free foods, the search results come up with Gluten-Free foods.
What should I do? If your daughter needs a gluten-free diet, then she should not eat barley, because barley has gluten in it. But is she allergic to barley, or to gluten? Certainly, a gluten free diet would eliminate all the barley from her diet, but if she can eat wheat, it would be a shame to remove that from her diet as well. Wheat flour is even more common than barley! I have been having digestive troubles for years.
Swelling of my stomach, alternating diarreah and constipation, cramps and gas. I am always tired. My doctor has advised me to go on a gluten free diet to see if that will make me feel better before they test my intestines.
Do these symptoms sound like they would be symptoms of a gluten allergy? Your symptoms could be symptoms of gluten intolerance; but they might also be symptoms of something else. I know that people do get very different symptoms with coeliac disease…. However, do bear in mind that if you stop eating gluten and if gluten is the problem for you , your small intestine might start healing before the test. You might then get a false result. It is recommended that you should be eating gluten for a while before taking the test, so that they can get a good result.
So you might have to start eating gluten again to get a proper diagnosis. That so depends on the relish… what are the ingredients? If you could tell us the brand name and manufacturer, we might be able to find out from them. It is very hard to find foods that are Gluten free and Dairy free. I live in the U. I to had this challenge when I started eating gluten free.
It cuts out grains, bread etc. Eat veggies, lean proteins and fats. It has worked out great for me. Pure butter should be naturally gluten free, being just made of milk and maybe a little salt. I have an employee that has to have a gluten free diet. This has started my interest in this dieting lifestyle. One of the biggest advantages to this dieting is that it is very hard for him to gain a lot of fat weight.
He tells me that this is common. I find it very difficult, I just cannot believe that I will have to eat like this forever. I am a very active person, studying, working, leaving my place early in the morning and coming home late in the evening.
Where are you based? And what kinds of things do you like to have for lunch? You mentioned fast food — obviously sandwiches are going to be difficult, but there are options, depending on what you like. And some places are very helpful, marking things up on the menu etc. So let us know what you like, and maybe someone will have some advice to share! I love lucky charms cereal but have stopped eating them because of my new allergens. My doctor wants me to get a skin test done which I will.
I have been eating a lot of white rice I eat fruits and a lot of chicken but not fried. I have went out and bought Canola oil and some gluten free foods but I just need to know what other types of meats I can eat also is processed meats and cheeses not good for the gluten free diet?
I have been suffering with seborrheic Dermatitis for 3 months. It is even now very difficult for me to find something to eat and will be even worse if this test comes back positive. It is possible to be a coeliac and a vegetarian! Do you eat dairy products? They would provide good protein and calcium. Lentils and other pulses are also good sources of protein. All fruits and vegetables are gluten free, and several grains. The Coeliac society here in the UK advises that all cheese is gluten free except for some soft cheeses which have added wheat fibre.
Meat, too, is naturally gluten free, though once it gets processed, you do need to be careful. Sausages, burgers, meatballs etc often — even usually, here in the UK — contain gluten. Breaded ham obviously does too…. We just got done reading a book that said gluten and wheat may upset some of his disorders and make them worse. We ate together all the time and the allergies imparted all kinds of complications. But after rallying our spirits we ventured to explore new and better recipes together, namely ones free of gluten since it seemed to be the main culprit in her diet.
She and I both searched for gluten-free crust alternatives but always ended up with doughy, bean-flavored, less-than-memorable results. If you have gluten free eaters in your life you simply must try this recipe. I convinced Laura to let me share her recipe and photograph her making it. So John and I joined her and her husband Ben at their place on a recent weeknight evening.
We split a couple bottles of wine, made pizza and I took photos. Oh yes, and we laughed and joked. These guys are the best. Husbands watched on as the women worked.
The girls pizza had Daiya mozzarella shreds to keep it dairy-free, since Laura and I try to avoid dairy whenever possible. It was insanely delicious. This pizza is super, seriously. Just 7 ingredients with the gluten free flour blend and about an hour from start to finish! A crust that actually gets crisp on the outsides and stays a little tender on the inside. However, try your own blend if you prefer, or sub all-purpose if not gluten-free. However, it is best when made fresh.
Follow us on Twitter , Instagram , Pinterest , and read more about us here! I ran across one that does not use yeast and it did not work, maybe for AP flour but did not require eggs or other blends, does anyone know how? Sorry I used your comment section. I too am looking for that pizza crust with NO yeast. Can this recipe be modified to fit this? Can the minimalist baker help with their super cooking powers on this one?
You can replace the gluten free flour and yeast with a cashew meal or an almond meal. These both are yeast free, and all you need to add is an egg or two, water, salt, coconut sugar optional , and a coconut or olive oil to base the pan your using to bake in. The whole process usually takes about an hour or so. Try a simple cheese crust. Pat into a greased pan I like to use a cookie sheet with sides. Bake at for min, top and bake again for min. Dairy is really bad.
Very tasty but really bad for your health. It must be just for taste. You could probably leave it out. Late reply but, the yeast for pizza dough does not need the long rising time that bread does; with gluten based doughs with a similar amount of yeast, a 10 min rest is sufficient.
That being said, that is more to allow the gluten a chance to rest as it would be tougher without that time. Gluten free flours mitigate that issue a bit. Somewhere in my travels I made a crust out of pure whipped sweet potato.
Tonight I am using the yeast crust recipe and topping it with whipped buttercup squash, broccolini, white beans, onion, salt and pepper, maybe some kelp flakes too.
I use to be a pan crust lover but discovered after 20 years I prefer extra crispy. Even before going gluten free, it was hard to find a perfectly crispy pizza. We do love pizza! I also need to get one of those pizza pans those are cool!
Not sure if anyone has actually tried this recipe. Your mixture of all measured ingredients turns into a powder of nothing but wasted materials and time. The only thing this recipe will satisfy is the weight of your hungry garbage can. Avoid at all costs! I also live in Canada and just tried this for the first time with Canadian ingredients and measurements. I have struggled to find a good gluten-free, vegan pizza crust. This one is perfect.
It produces a tasty slice that is crispy on the bottom, soft on the inside, and holds together well when picking up the slices. I made two slight alterations: I also had to sprinkle in a little bit of extra brown rice flour perhaps 2 tbsp at the end to dry it out a tiny bit. Other than that, I followed the steps exactly as indicated in the recipe. Just wanted to add my experience: It more than appeased my gfree self and my gfree 14, 12 and 8 year old.
I used Namaste flour blend in place of the individual flours it contains the same ones , and actually had fun proofing yeast and all that jazz. All that to say, thank you for the recipe! Millet actually contains a Glutinous protein in it called Panicin. You will find them in wheat, corn, sorghum, barley, rye, millet, oats, teff, and rice.
Rice is the only one listed that contains less than 5ppm, which is the acceptable amount for people with gluten allergies or intolerance as stated by celiac.
This post is misleading. The Celiac Foundation states gluten less than 20ppm is safe for celiac. For food to be certified gluten free by the Celiac Foundation it only needs to be less than 20ppm. The measurements worked perfectly for me, the only problem was I needed to make more! Perhaps you missed a step or added too much flour. What happened to your dough? Also, do you weigh your ingredients or use the simple measuring cup method? I have read and have learned through experience that it is better to weigh your ingredients when using gluten free flours, etc.
I think next time will be a complete success once I remember the xanthan gum. Hey, I also live in Canada and I just tried this recipe. I had the same problem with the end result being just powder and wonder if it is because I did not let the yeast grow or if I killed it. Regardless, all I did was add in another few cups of water to make the dough. I ran into a similar problem. While the ingredients are similar. They are not the same and the proportions may be quite different. It is edible but not what I would call the best GF pizza recipe.
I ate two pieces and through the rest away. It was like cardboard. I just looked for a recipe on the Krusteaz website and they use less flour and more liquid and yeast. As you said, the first time follow the recipe to a T. Thanks for the recipe, if I try again, I will use the GF flour blend just as you list. This one worked out on the first try though and it was really yummy. Hi, I believe the sugar is probably there to feed the yeast to make the crust rise, though gluten free recipes do not rise nearly as much as standard wheat flour.
I live in Canada as well and have made this recipe many times with great success. We used Namaste Perfect flour blend. I live in AZ so I used a little extra olive oil, some herbs, and a tad more water for a better consistency and baked it for shorter time.
The whole family loved it! Made this recipe as is in Canada with ingredients purchased in Canada with no issue. I made the gf flour as per the recipe rather than use my own and used cups not the scale and it was amazing. I too live in Canada and the addition of all ingredients makes a dough that is perfect in texture. You should try again, you must have missed something.
Write it down and try baking it, you might end up with a good surprise…. I did try it as it says, but reduced the water. It is definitely worth trying again. It came out soft and flexible. The you have the best GF crust ever. Hi made this crust and it turned out very good. I hope many others enjoy it as well. How fun to see the traditions carried on… the gluten free is important, but the most important thing is the time spent together each week!!
Love family nights, love my family… and we adopt and love you two as well ;-. Love this comment, Shelly! Thanks for saying hi. Does anyone know if the GF flour blend is like an all purpose flour? I just recently found out my 4 year old has to eat GF and I would like to know the cheapest and tastiest all purpose flour blend to use when cooking for her. Tiffany, I would use a blend of the flours suggested in the post, but you could also sub a GF flour blend, such as King Arthur.
I hope your baby gets all better with his new foods! Which should we be using here? Pillsbury makes a GF all purpose flour that tastes great and measured out cup for cup as regular flour. Makes a great crispy tempura batter for Chinese style food too!!! Loved this gluten free crust! This one looks lovely, and the ingredients list is mercifully short. I love the gif! Or does it specifically need to be the blend you use? I use brown rice flour in the same proportion mentioned and substitute the sundry flours with bobs redmill gluten free flour since it already has most of those sundry flours within it.
It seems to mostly dissipate with baking, but not completely to me. To Laura — agreed! However, I will try the one Dana recommends in this recipe sometime to compare, as well. The garbanzo bean is way too overpowering. Especially when I would try to make pancakes.. Sometimes it has a sweetened taste to it but I was just curious.
To me, I find it to be somewhat of a metallic taste. I have made cakes, pie crusts, dumplings, biscuits, pancakes, gravies, etc, all that my family and I have loved and no strange taste.
Heather, have you used the BC GF rice flour blend for pizza crust? I love your pizza. They look so yummy! Thanks for the recipe! The whole family loved it. Thanks for such a simple and delicious recipe! This was the first time I ever made a pizza crust from scratch. It was very tasty. However, it was a little thick in the middle for a crunchy crust. Next time I am going to get a roller to roll it thinner in the center and maybe put more sauce. Thank you for your recipe.
Love to hear it! AND so much cheaper and better than takeout. Glad you liked it! Just have to confirm that this is the best gluten free pizza crust! Definitely our go-to crust from now on.
Glad this worked so well for you! Being new to gluten-free, I found way too many things that just taste yucky. It came out really nice! I was worried about the prebake, that it might dry out, yet it stayed moist and flexible. My toppings buried any hidden flavors in the dough.
It was great, and we will definitely make it again! I love your crust! It was so simple to make and even new to gluten free husband who is a very picky eater approved! I have tried several other pizza crust recipes, but this tops them all. Thank you so much for sharing. I am going to try making it again soon and doing the first bake, then cooling and freezing the crust. This way I can pull from the freezer on a busy school night and thaw, top and bake. I had tried to switch my old glutenful, favourite pizza dough recipe into a gluten free version that ended in a pretty disappointing fail.
I made it for the first time last night, and, as someone else mentioned, I had a bit of a thicker crust in the middle that ended up being a bit mushy, but with slight tweaking really just making it evenly thin, and also pre-baking the full 30 min to help dry it out , I think this recipe will become a staple in our kitchen as well! I made it exactly as the recipe called for, the flour blend is pretty basic and I had all the ingredients on hand.
I loved her comment as well: Thanks for sharing your experience with it and I hope it does become a staple in your kitchen. Our entire family is going gluten free for the sake of our autistic son, adhd son, add daughter, son with allergies, daughter with asthma, son with digestive problems.
We have been trying so many gluten free recipes lately and found them all to be failures. The family loved it!!!!! Thanks so much for sharing. By the way, our family has a tradition of making homemade pizza every Sunday night as well.
So glad to be able to continue this. All of the comments persuaded me to give this a go. We were not disappointed. Thanks so much for such a quick, simple and forgiving gluten-free vegan pizza crust recipe!
Gluten-free breads can be so unforgiving and complicated, bland and crumbly …not this one. I literally just used whatever was leftover in my pantry and fridge. I brushed it with olive oil, topped with garlic, onion, spinach, and fresh cashew cheese cashews, garlic, nutritional yeast, salt, water. I respond well to millet and GF oat flour. Can you tell me what proportion of these flours you used? Or did you omit the tapioca etc….?? I just want to thank you for posting this!
As a Northerner who grew up eating the best NY pies, it hit me hard when i had to stop eating gluten and give up things i loved most. Any true New York pizza lover can agree with me when i say that part is essential to good pizza!!! And not all pizza are foldworthy! Is there a hotline to call if get stuck, nervous and I have questions? LOL I will let you know how it turns out!!!! If it gets stuck which it might on the pan , simply gently lift it off with a spatula.
The crust was horrible! It crumbled like crazy and tasted like cardboard. I also found this crumbly. I am baking it now and will see the end result, although at this point it does not look promising. I made this pizza crust and have to say that it was some of the best I have had in a long, long time. So excited to have a good crust alternative! I mixed an extra batch of the flours with salt, baking powder, and extra sugar, so all I have to do is add the proofed yeast and olive oil and I have my dough.
I will try the approach of brushing with olive oil next time. So easy and so delicious! The family members who can eat gluten even said it was delicious! Thank you so much for sharing!! You are my hero. I want to try this again! Misty, the dough will never rise due to lack of gluten for yeast to feed on. If the dough is too gooey, add some more flour until it has the consistency you desire.
Misty — If you are not gluten sensitive as much as you are wheat sensitive, try it with spelt flour? It sounds to me your yeast was old or the water you used to activate it was either too hot or too cold. A few things you need to know when using yeast you may not know: First your yeast needs to be fresh and alive. Also, when you have it at home, especially if you rarely use yeast in your cooking, it MUST be stored in the fridge!
Otherwise, the yeast will become ineffective much sooner. Second, the water used to activate the yeast must be no hotter than degrees Fahrenheit. The other important thing to know is that yeast feeds on sugars! It never has and never will feed on gluten. These things are important, or your dough will never rise.
Anyhow, hope this helps! This is the BEST pizza crust — gluten free or not. I was diagnosed with an allergy to dairy last year and my boyfriend was great about cooking dairy free for me. When he was recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy — I decided to return the favor.
So I finally had to leave a comment since the other comments are what swayed me to give this a shot. The directions are foolproof and the crust is seriously amazing!!!! I realize I just admitted that we have eaten pizza once a week for a month. I guess it just proves how great this recipe is. Made your pizza last night for my husband who had to go gluten free this year.
He loved it, I had enough dough to make two fairly big pizzas so he took one for his lunch today. Hes delighted with himself. I cant thank you enough. Trying this recipe tonight. Side note, love the guestbook font!! I also have arrowroot flour. Would that be a better sub than potato flour? Could I also use Nutritional Yeast Flakes instead of instant dry yeast? The potato flour is likely to make your dough like a brick.
Last night I was short on tapioca and tried half arrowroot and half tapioca. It ended up runny and brownbrowned too quickly. Sorry… the comment editor was acting up! The result was still tasty, but was my least favorite iteration of this usually delightful crust. I personally think the tapioca is crucial! I did tonight with this crust! Thanks for an awesome and super easy recipe! Katie, love to hear it! I used raw honey instead. I am new to Gluten-free baking and I really enjoyed it.
Mine was a crunchy thin crust. I also added cheese and garlic powder to the the top of the extra dough and made garlic bread sticks. I am a LAZY cook and this is a dream for simplicity. I used the flour I mix ahead of time and keep around as a standard GF replacement. For anyone who is interested, the crust gets fine results with a flour made this way: Plus the xanthan gum, I just keep it separate from my premixed flour.
I barely even chewed this it was so good! The dough puffed up so nicely and it smelled like… normal pizza! Thank you so much for this recipe! My bubby cant havw gluten but the rest of us can so last night i made one gf pizza and one regular. Excited to try this. I only have brown rice flour. You should be able to find quality pepperoni there. Wheat is typically included as a filler in most processed foods like salami, ham and cheese to name a few.
They typically state if they are gluten free or not. With regard to cheese, anything that is individually sliced is really bad as they coat it in flour to make it not stick to the wrapping.
I use Don for sliced meat, they usually have a wide range including ham, chicken, etc. The salami will usually state if it is gluten free.
They are slightly more expensive, but worth the peace of mind. Thankyou for the pizza ideas. We will have to try this recipe tonight! I also futz with recipes on the first go so instead of xanthan gum I threw in ground flaxseed, added a bit more oil and a touch of butter and substituted honey for sugar.
And, actually, am more likely to try doing the same thing with our own family favorite recipe first. Friends who will honor the allergies — and still eat together with you — are gems.
That must have made the transition easier! I made this recipe tonight and it really is the best gluten free pizza I have ever made or eaten! Thank you so much for this easy to use recipe. It was helpful to be able to refer to the pictures. I like that there is a printable version, too. Deedee, I think that will work but no guarantees as the two have different textures and tastes. But give it a try and let me know how it goes!! After learning my daughter was gluten intolerant 4 years ago, I have continued to search for a likable pizza crust.
Friday night is pizza night at our house and though we sometimes have pizza delivered, it is more fun to make it. Last week I tried a new crust recipe that caused my 6 year old daughter to eat most of it before asking if it had gluten in it because it was actually nasty! I found this recipe. My husband said it was the first time in 4 years that he loved pizza night! Hmm, it may have just been that you needed to bake it longer.
Also, did you make any ingredient substitutions? Thumbs up from the whole family, thank you: I did make flour substitutions but the crust is still delicious. Way better than any of the almond meal ones I have tried and far better than the box mix I had been using. I have tried many different wheat free pizza crust mixes and recipes, and yours is by far the BEST. My son is 5 and allergic to wheat and egg and dairy and so many other things and many wheat free crusts calls for eggs or sometimes milk!
My three year old has severe food allergies. I cannot wait to try this…thank you for this lovely post! We will try this soon! I typically use arrowroot. I can pick up tapioca starch at the store today if that is recommended…but I have a bulk supply of arrowroot at the present! The pizza crusts are so expensive at the store. I have just discovered Chebe cheese bread and have made that in pizza crust form. I came across this pizza crust recipe and decided to try it tonight.
I did follow it exactly and the dough was great to spread in the pizza pan. I put on a glove and coated it with olive oil then spread the dough easily. The crust came out a good consistency and crispy on the edges. Very nice pizza dough consistency.
I think next time I will add shredded cheese to the dough and see what happens. Thanks it was very good. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe. It came out just perfect, and my kids are gobbling it up as I write. So easy to make and tasty! Decided to make this at the last minute tonight, but had everything but the white rice flour so I used chick pea flour instead.
It was delicious and rustic because of the texture of the chick pea flour. But anxious to try it with white rice flour as well.
We just tried recipe today with my family and it came out great. Best GF pizza I have ever had. My sister who is not GF also enjoyed it. Followed the recipe exactly for tonight, but may add some spice into the dough next time, like oregano. It seemed to bake well but it seemed really dark after the pre bake time was up and the dough had lots of cracks. The pizza looked so good as I pulled it out of the oven. The taste was great but it was extremely dry. I will for sure make it again though with the rice and tapioca flours — that will probably make a big difference in how well it absorbs the liquid and how moist the final product is.
This gluten free pizza crust had a very good flavor but my crust was tough and I could barely cut it. I am wondering if I spread it out too thin and then cooked it too long for a thin crust.
What did I do wrong? Made it exactly to the recipe — same flour mix etc. What could Joyce and I have done wrong? Perhaps it had to do with the brand or freshness of the flours you used? Did you bake it a bit too long? Also, I found that a pizza stone will make it crispier, but a metal pan will keep it softer. Hope that helps in some way! Well I made this again — did everything exactly the same except reduced the length of time of the first bake to 10 minutes and it worked perfectly! Must be my oven.
My dough turned out looking like pancake batter. I followed all the steps and this is my first time making dough.
Was I supposed to proof it first or something? Otherwise it tastes great. This was also my first try making dough. Try the recommendation I listed — it works like a charm. Hello, I tried your recipe and it worked great. Good texture — easy to roll — and baking paper over the top works a treat to squash the dough out. I flattened the crust out quite thin and found that it cooked great with the topping on for about 15 minutes in a fan bake oven without needing to pre cook the base.
Have also pre cooked another base and stored in the freezer for later. My mum is gluten free and I wanted to try this for her: Any suggestions how to cope before I attempt this? Would adding more flour be all that I have to do? Man, bring on the pizza for the wheat and gluten free amongst us! I made this tonight and now I have pizza I can enjoy with no disappointments.
Thank you for sharing a great recipe. As a personal experiment, I went meat free except some fish like salmon , casein free dairy and gluten free about 3 months ago. I used your recipe as a guideline and went with 1 cup glutinous white rice flour, 1 cup tapioca flour, 1 cup quinoa flour since we had a big bag of it.
I sprinkled garlic powder into the dough. I also used your pizza sauce recommendation. Overall, I really like both the crust and the sauce.
