Pennini’s Gluten-Free Pizza

Gluten-free pizza. ‘Nuff said.

Gluten-free pizza at Pennini's

OK I’ll say some more. Pennini’s began serving a gluten-free pizza option yesterday. My pizza orders this evening were numbers three and four. The reason I give five stars is this: The guys have nailed it with regards to serving up a gluten-free pizza in a laid back and casual atmosphere.

I ordered two pizzas just for the heck of it, and stuck to the basics: Pepperoni. My two boys and I (they are 4 and 7) dusted everything. Gone. Zip. Destroyed. Game over man! One, two, three, up with the skirt, and it’s gone! I am the only celiac in the family, but the boys could have cared less. They ate more pizza than you could shake a stick at.

The things were delicious. Real pizza on a thin crust, nice and traditional-like. But the best part was that the guy that cooked it, Greg (I asked if I could print his name here), came out and described in detail the steps he took to ensure that this pizza was indeed as free as possible of any potential gluten contamination.

Since I like to work as a human guinea pig, I can attest to the quality of their process. It is several hours later, and I am happily here sitting on my recumbent bike machine at home doing at least an hour’s penance for the debauchery that just ensued – grease, cheese, oil, and processed meats are the stuff of pizza made the way god intended. If there were even a tiny bit of contamination with wheat, I’d be sick by now. But I’m great!

In summary: Great gluten-free pizza, totally laid-back atmosphere, awesome friendly staff, family loved everything else they tried on the menu, and I’m stuffed.

See you guys again real soon.
