Lately, a brand new Melbourne based mostly firm has launched stone baked merchandise to Coles. Senza Wellness Meals is the identify of the corporate and you can see their Herb & Garlic Focaccia and Pizza Based mostly within the chilled part the place the Julian’s pizza bases usually are. Each will set you again $5 and are made in Australia. The merchandise did initially trigger some confusion, as they comprise gluten free wheat starch. Senza has this listed as wheat starch with out gluten, which may be very odd wording. I’ll simply clear up that it’s potential to have gluten free wheat starch which is the place the gluten protein has been rendered not detectable. One other small typo is that they listing buckwheat flour in two phrases. For peace of thoughts I’ve contacted the corporate and the merchandise are examined. In reality Senza will even be on the Brisbane gluten free expo this weekend.
Herb & Garlic Focaccia
Beginning with the Garlic and Herb Focaccia which is one among solely two focaccias extensively out there at Coles. The opposite being the Gluten Free Bakehouse possibility. The garlic and herb focaccia comprises soy and sulphites. It could comprise traces of milk. Different components embody rice starch and flour, gluten free wheat starch as talked about above, corn starch, buckwheat flour, potato starch, yeast, garlic and onion. Because it does comprise the gluten free wheat starch that is gluten free however not appropriate for these with a wheat allergy.
Baking the focaccia was fast and straightforward, though I did prepare dinner it for a couple of minutes greater than the label instructed. The very first thing I’ll say is that this fills your home with essentially the most superb aroma. It additionally puffs up rather well and as you may see is sort of ethereal on the within. As quickly because it got here out of the over I smothered it with some melted butter. Apart from being a bit of powerful in some sections the consistency, flavour and mouthfeel is spot on. I’d undoubtedly be selecting this up as a aspect to soup or stew this winter.
Including to the big selection of gluten free pizza bases, Senza brings us one other stone baked possibility. For main allergens it comprises soy and with a could comprise danger of milk and sulphites. Different components embody rice starch and flour, the gluten free wheat starch, corn starch, buckwheat flour, potato starch and yeast. Once more identical to the focaccia that is gluten free however not wheat free.
I baked the pizza base as per the packet directions. Some areas identical to with the focaccia have been a bit chewy however total it’s a very nice base. It puffs up amazingly with air pockets all through the dough. For $5 it’s a fairly good substitute for the Toscano bases. As a result of it was a bit of chewy, it did maintain up nicely structurally. I believe you might simply pile this with a great deal of toppings and nonetheless be capable of maintain a slice. It’s not a nasty possibility in any respect.
For those who aren’t a fan, you’ll want to try my different pizza base critiques on the bakery web page.
