Pillsbury Introduces Gluten-Free Pizza, Pie & Cookie Dough


If you haven’t been feeling friendly toward the Pillsbury Doughboy since going gluten free, it might be time to re-think your relationship. Pillsbury, a bastion of gluten-filled refrigerated tubes of bread, biscuits and cookies, has moved into the gluten-free market.

The brand, which is owned by General Mills, recently announced a new line of gluten-free products featuring tubsofpizza, pastry and chocolate chip cookie dough. The products will be available nationwide this summer and in most major supermarkets by August. You’ll be able to find the dough tubs in the refrigerated aisle alongside other Pillsbury products.

“Several members of the General Mills family either have celiac disease themselves or have a close friend or relative who does,” said Rachel Dickens, Pillsbury media relations representative. “Hearing our employees’ and consumers’ stories brought to life an untapped need for delicious gluten-free products and prompted us to find a solution.”

The pie and pastry dough is made with gluten-free starches and rice and sorghum flours and is egg and dairy free. One serving contains 250 calories.

The thin crust pizza dough, made with tapioca starch, whole sorghum, whole millet and rice flours, contains egg but is dairy-free and 170 calories per serving.

The chocolate chip cookie dough is made with a brown sugar and rice flour base and contains eggs, soy and dairy. One cookie is 110 calories.

General Mills uses “stringent” programs to prevent the risk of cross-contamination, and has taken “specific steps to ensure that the process and equipment used does not provide any opportunity for gluten or gluten-containing ingredients to get into its products,” according to a Pillsbury spokesperson.

  • When and will your gf products be available in Canada

  • Yea! Finally! Can hardly wait…now, please do biscuits! I really miss those

  • The only thing that sucks is I haven’t seen it yet and their website only has a search for the betty crocker and bisquick gluten free mixes not the Pillsbury tubs to find it at a store near your location. I wish they would have that part up.

  • The only thing I don’t like is they do not list it on the product search. I have not seen it so far where I live and would love to have it so I went to their website and you can search for stores in your area that sell a specific product. The only gluten free they have to search is betty crocker and bisquick. I wish they would put that on their website search as well so we know where we can find it locally.

  • Looks like a lot of empty calories…

  • I think I might cry… in a good way!

    Great products. I have not tried the pie crust, but the pizza and cookie dough are great. Easy to use. I especially like that cookies can be made a few at a time. Less tempting to eat them all. I get two pizza crust by rolling out thin dough and cooking in a iron skillet. I wish they were less expensive, but I would eat them a lot more. Go to Pillsbury website for store locations and coupons.

    I am not finding the gluten free pizza dough, gluten free pie crusts, nor the gluten free crescent rolls in any of our grocery stores. I live in Burleson, Texas and we have Kroger, HEB, and Albertson’s grocery stores. Please tell me how I can get your products stocked at any or all of these stores. Thanks!
