As the mother of a gluten free teen, I am constantly on a quest for good gluten free pizza, with an emphasis on the good. My daughter loves pizza and before diagnosis, would have chosen it for every occasion. As a result, we have tried nearly every gluten free crust on the market. Our favorite so far is Udi’s, available in most health food stores. But still, it’s not the same as restaurant pizza.
Up until recently, we couldn’t find gluten free pizza at a restaurant at all, but now, some are becoming aware and offering pizza on their menus. Our favorite so far is BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. BJ’s has a gluten free menu with quite a few delicious offerings, their pizza being one of the best. You can order any of their pizzas gluten free. The manager will even come over and make sure you liked it. One of our favorites is the Mediterranean which has chicken, pesto, roasted garlic, kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese and peperocinis.
BJ’s is also a member of the Gluten Free Restaurant Awareness Program. How great is that? Hopefully, more restaurants will join soon. BJ’s has locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nevada, Ohio, Texas and Washington.
For us adults, they even have gluten free beer!
So the quest continues, but at least we have found one good option. Know of any others? Please share!
