Can I buy a premade gluten-free pie crust?
Absolutely yes… maybe. There are a few brands that offer premade gluten-free pie crust options that you can buy at the grocery store or online.
That said, these aren’t available at every store, and many brands won’t ship their products since they come frozen and there are raw ingredients that they can’t risk the safety of ingredients during transit from their facility to where you are.
However, in many major grocery stores or more “higher end” grocery stores, like Whole Foods, you’ll have no problem finding a gluten-free pie crust option.
If you decide to buy a store-bought gluten-free pie crust, use the list in this post to help you narrow down your choices so you know what to look for.
Where can I buy gluten-free pie crusts?
Gluten-free pie crusts aren’t always easy to find, so it’s a good idea to see what you have at your local store in the freezer section or the natural food area of your grocery store.
However, if you aren’t having luck where you go for your normal shopping, it’s easiest to just hop onto one of the websites of the brands I’ve listed here in this post to use their store locator option to find out where you might find these products.
Most gluten-free pie crusts aren’t available to order online, so finding something close to where you live will probably be your best option.
If you are open the the idea of making a gluten-free pie crust using a dry mix where you only add butter or flour, then these can also be found in some stores, but you’ll have better luck ordering them online than the premade options.
What ingredients are in a store-bought gluten-free pie crust?
Most store-bought gluten-free pie crusts will be made of a combination of flours and starches that replace an enriched flour you’d find in a traditional pie crust recipe. You’ll also find water, sugar, salt, and binding ingredients like xanthan gum or guar gum.
For each of the gluten-free pie crust brands I’ve listed below, I’ve made sure to include a list of ingredients for each of them, so you have an idea of what you’ll be looking for before trying to find them locally and purchasing.
