Cooqi Gluten Free, which was founded by Judy Malmon, started as a retail bakery in St. Paul, Minnesota. It is now a line of artisan, organic whole-grain gluten-free baking mixes and flours which are produced in a dedicated gluten-free facility.
Cooqi (sounds like cookie) Gluten Free products include:
- Multi-Purpose Flour
- Cake and Pastry Flour
- Pancake Flour
- Pizza and Pita Mix
I had the opportunity to try the pizza and pita mix. There are a number of things I liked about it.
It makes good pizza! My whole family ate it (gluten free and not) and everyone liked it.
According to the package directions, each bag of mix makes four 12-inch pizzas. According to the web site it makes six. It depends on how thin or thick you like your crust. I got four pizzas out of a package, and they were fairly thin, so I think that’s more realistic. Still, four pizzas per mix is very good.
It is allergy friendly. The mix is gluten, dairy, soy, nut, and egg free, and does not call for any of those ingredients to be added to it.
It is easy to use. I like the convenience of a mix at times. On those busy Friday evenings when I wanted to make pizza but didn’t have time to do it from scratch, this was an easy and good substitute.
I did find that my dough turned out too wet when I followed the instructions on the bag. It was so soft, I just spread it on the pizza pan with a spatula. However, it still turned out well.
I recommend that you hold back some of the water and add more as needed. The second video on this page is very helpful in understanding what the consistency of the dough should be like.
The video also shows you how the mix can be used to make pita bread, bagels, baguettes, and focaccia bread!
