    Well my husband has had his first pizza made with the Lo-Dough base I topped it with ham, pepperoni, cheese, tomato and pepper and he said if he had not known what the base was he would have thought it was a real pizza base. I will be using Lo-Dough in other ways like wraps and think it could even work as pancakes with sugar free maple syrup on them

    May well have to try it. I might just go and knock on the door.
    They are made on my doorstep (3 miles away actually).

    Looks interesting, but a bit expensive at £2 - £2.50 per wrap, depending on pack size.

    I have been thinking of trying them. Once you open the pack of two can you freeze the other one?

    Hi pinkorchid, let us know how you found them as wraps. I think they are fine as a pizza base because the toppings cover up the consistency and taste but when I tasted one naked as it were, well I was not impressed especially as they are expensive. I think they are a bit like marmite because I know plenty of people love them, thank you.

    The only things I would use them for are pizza bases and quiche crusts.
    As wraps, garlic bread, naans and toast, I found them an Epic Fail.

    Hi I’ve used lodough a couple of times but very mixed experiences - for me they worked as a quiche base very successfully and I also dipped bits in beaten egg to make eggy bread and this worked too. However I’m still not hooked enough to pay the amount On a regular basis as tend to prefer more seedy bread type products - and quiches are delicious with no base they are more like frittatas but they work.
    @PenguinMum wrapped up well they do freeze they do dry out if left in fridge for too long even wrapped once open.

    Do not think I will use them for pies myself but maybe they would work for a very thin crust. I would probably use them for a quiche base

    Yes they are expensive at £2.50 each so will not be using them to often but worth it sometimes if it means having something that actually tastes and looks like real dough

    Just had a look at the website and they mention pasties... I do miss a proper Cornish pasty: beef skirt, potato, swede, onion, lashings of pepper, salt, and in a proper shortcrust case, none of your puff stuff. Obviously the pasty is off the list, and perhaps the potato and swede (depending on spikyness) but I wonder if Lo-dough would make an acceptable fake one for an occasional treat?

    I've tried lo-dough and although it makes a reasonable pizza it is far too expensive for regular use. For quiche bases and pies savoury and sweet I now use coconut/almond pastry and replace some of the nut flours with a small amount of Bisquick to give some elasticity and that seems to do the trick IMHO

    I grabbed some last week and got make a pizza this afternoon for lunch. I have to say it wasn't half bad.

    If you follow the instructions from the website and crisp the base up first in a frying pan or wok for a couple of minutes, it makes a decent base

    [​IMG]

    It was actually very filling and tasty.

    People have already commented on the price of Lo-Dough, but if you consider £3-4 for pizza is actually good value (well I think so anyway)

    I would have no problem recommending this as a base for a pizza at all. I for one will be making many more :)
