Gluten Free Bread

So, I recently found out that I'm gluten intolerant :( Does anyone have any good recommendations for gluten free bread and pizza? All the gluten free breads, and especially pizza bases that I've tried taste like cardboard. I live in Melbourne. Thanks everyone!!

    Aldi gluten free bread is decent. And less expensive than others

    Gluten free bread is pretty horrible in general. There's a place in Bentleigh that sells a lot of GF bread and other GFv products

    Broccoli bread, fat head pizza.

    My Mum only likes Lichtensteins, they sell it at Coles.
    I'm not into sliced bread, but for rolls and buns I like Gluten Free Bakehouse but there isn't a lot of choice.

    I'd recommend having a look at the options at the grocer most convenient for you.
    Give the loaves a slight squeeze. I've found a lot of them are very firm.
    Have you tried Helga's?

    It's all largely the same - there honestly isn't that much variety. It's the very definition of 'an acquired taste'.

    How did you find out you were gluten intollerant? What is the test?

    I've a friend with a Gluten-Free bakery business. He supplies across South-East melb to bakeries and delis - GoGF. Pretty good if you are inclined to give it a try.

    Our house tends to just get the Helgas from the supermarket, and usually resort to toasting it.

    I like the pizza bases that @gaz3342 links to - Aldi have (fairly recently) started doing one that is quite similar, for about $4, and that's my go-to now.

    My wife is gluten free.

    I've found the Spelt based products to be some of the best GF options. It has a kind of nice bready flavor and still seems to provide a decent type of loaf that inst too dense.

    +1 for spelt loaves. Not sure if you can get spelt pizza bases.

    We find Coles make great GF bread and as for pizza (apart from home made) you cant go wrong with Dr Ortker’s GF.

    I have tried the Abbott's and the Helga's gluten free sliced bread are better than the other brands and the bread is soft.
