Schar Gluten Free Pizza Crust Review and Details

Schar’s gluten-free pizza crusts make it simple for those who want to make their own gluten-free pizzas at home. Among the various ready-made GF crust choices on the market, Schar’s stands out for its taste, texture, and healthier-than-average ingredients.

I picked up this crust from Walmart and used it for our Domino’s Ultimate Pepperoni copycat recipe, and the result was very impressive.

The crust tasted just like pizza crusts you’d get at pizzerias-no funny smells, no sogginess or chewiness, and the right amount of crispness.

So definitely add Schar’s ready-made crust to your list of GF pizza products because it will make your pizza-making process easier and the result much tastier.

That said, let me walk you through everything you need to know about it and give you our “pull-no-punches” review of this crust.

Let’s start with the bottom line.

The Bottom Line

Schar gluten-free crusts are sourdough pizza crusts that come in a pack of two and are certified gluten-free, Vegan, and low FODMAP. They’re 10-inches in size, priced around $7-$8 per pack and only require 8-10 minutes of baking time.

Schar’s crusts are perfect for multi-topping combinations because they’re nice and sturdy. They have a subtle sourdough flavor that’s not overpowering, making them versatile enough to be used for both sweet and savory toppings.

  • Certified gluten-free
  • Non-GMO
  • Plant-based

Taste, Texture, Smell, Appearance, and More


The crust’s mild sourdough flavor adds a bit of a citrusy taste which perfectly blends with any pizza sauce or toppings you choose to bake on it. 

My first try with this crust was a pepperoni and extra cheese combo, which resulted in a perfect harmony of all flavors in every bite. I tasted the crust, the toppings, and the homemade sauce used, and they all complimented each other nicely.

Even if you’re not a fan of sourdough, I urge you to try this crust as the sourdough flavor is very subtle. You can also use this crust for more veggie-heavy toppings, as its citrusy taste would be an ideal match for vegetarian or vegan toppings.

So, taste-wise, Schar’s crust is a big win in my book as it’s one of the most realistic-tasting GF pizza crusts I’ve had.


The texture is spot-on as well. The crust is thin but not too thin and has the perfect amount of crispiness to it. It’s also sturdy enough to support all the toppings you pile on without getting soggy.

Make sure not to overcook it because that would make the crust hard and chewy. But if you bake it for the recommended 8-10 minutes, you’ll have a perfectly crispy crust.


There’s no funny smell to the crust-just the faint smell of sourdough when unwrapping it from the packaging.


The appearance is also realistic, as the crust looks like it’s been hand-rolled. Here are the pre and post-bake pictures below:

Schar’s Cooking Instructions

Here are the cooking instructions from Schar’s box. We’ll share our baking experience below to let you know if any adjustments are recommended for the best results.

Conventional Oven

Preheat oven to 410° F (210° C).

Remove crust from packaging and place prepared baking sheet.

Add choice of toppings.

Place baking sheet with pizza on top rack in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes (extra toppings may increase cooking time).

Remove from oven and allow to cook a few minutes before serving.

Our Baking Tips

The cooking instruction offered by Schar is very helpful. Nevertheless, based on my experience, here are two tips that will be useful for you.

1-Of course, cooking time will depend on your oven’s performance, but I don’t recommend keeping this crust in the oven longer than 10-12 minutes because the crust’s texture will change from crispy to harder.

So, keep an eye on the crust/pizza as it reaches the end of its baking time to avoid overcooking.

2-The instruction says to use a baking sheet. Baking sheets are fine, but for better heat flow and crispy results, use a baking rack if you have one.

Baking racks will allow your pizza to cook more evenly. If you don’t have a baking rack, that’s okay! Just use a baking sheet.


Is Schar Gluten Free Pizza Crust Low FODMAP?

Is Schar Gluten Free Pizza Crust Vegan?

Does Schar’s Pizza Crust Need to be Refrigerated?

Schar’s pizza crust does not need to be refrigerated while still in its original package. The crust must be used the same day it is removed from its plastic packaging.

Which Supermarkets Sell Schar’s Crusts?

The best way to check inventory is to visit Schar’s website and use their store locator. However, it’s best if you call the store ahead of time to make sure they have it in stock because the locator isn’t always accurate.

Make sure to look for this crust on the store’s regular shelves and not in the freezer section because this crust isn’t kept frozen.

Final Thoughts

I was very satisfied with Schar’s crust. Normally, with gluten-free crusts, I have to sacrifice either taste or texture (or both), but with Schar’s, I didn’t have to make that sacrifice. It had the perfect balance of both.

Of course, you may enjoy it better if you make your own gluten-free dough for your homemade pizza. But, for an 8-10 minute bake, and the price, this crust is tough to beat.

I would highly recommend Schar’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust to anyone who is looking for good quality, taste, and texture in a GF pizza crust. This was by far one of the best GF crusts I’ve tried!
