Everyone Loves Pizza

Pizza is often a staple in the American diet.  Just because you are gluten free doesn't mean you have to give up on pizza.  There are several places that offer gluten free crusts & they are pretty tasty. (keep in mind there might be cross contamination)

I've been a couple times to a pizza place called Pieology.  There are several locations in California but I noticed on their website they also have locations in several states. What draws people to this place is the create your own pizza and that is cooked in a fire oven.

Some tips I have for ordering gluten free pizza at Pieology are:

1) Call ahead to verify they have gluten free crust on hand

2) Don't be afraid to give the pizza maker instructions like washing their hands & put on new gloves

3) Request they use the sauce from squeeze bottle (the ladle is used on the wheat crusts, you don't want that touching yours)

4) Request that the same employee follow your pizza through each topping station (helps cut down on cross contamination)

My experience is that they are very respectful to gluten free. It has been a pleasant experience for me so far. I'm not entirely sure which sauces and toppings are gluten free because I just get olive oil,cheese and veggies on my pizza. I am sure the manager would be happy to go over all your options with you.  I've been very happy with the taste of the pizza. The size of the pizza is about the same size at the wheat crusts. Depending on your appetite it is certainly enough pizza for two people to share.  I always eat half of it and then save the rest to eat at another meal.

Overall I highly recommend eating gluten free pizza at Pieology. What are your favorite pizza toppings?
