I was offered some pizza at a primary school family picnic last year; when I declined due to being gluten free (GF), my friend's response was, "oh, well yes, you may as well just pile some of these toppings onto the box and eat that!"

Okay, the irony is not lost on me, that I am looking for gluten free Italian food; the ruling modern nation of the bread, pasta, and pizza world, where glutino is the secret ingredient in all of those delicioso recipes passed down from Mamma and Pappa Luigi (with all due respect).

Gluten free pizza is something I'd like to find better options for. It shouldn't be all that challenging to make a super gluten free pizza crust; you need a bit of rise and stretchy chewiness, but it's not as challenging as a cake or loaf of bread.

Here are a few options that I have come up with, with the help of some good ol' market research (friends on Facebook!) and internal investigation (personal experiences).



Napolitanos: Beaumaris: "Big heaps of toppings & very flavoursome."

Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar: "Hubby swears by Crust." I counted 16 varieties on the menu that clearly indicated GF toppings, none of the kids pizzas are available with GF crust. Medium GF pizzas charged at non-GF large pizza prices.

Pizza Capers: Beaumaris: "Lovely healthy gluten free pizzas."; $2 more than a small, $1 less than large, but it is unclear what size that gets you; I assume small, as there is no "medium" size offered.

Adrianos:: "Basic cheaper stuff." Quick research on their website indicates that GF medium is charged at non-GF large prices.

Dominoes: Locations. Can't say I love Dominoes gluten free crust, but they'll do in a pinch when we need something quick, easy to order ahead online, and cheap, cheap, cheap ("You get what you pay for," is especially true with gluten free products). GF crust available at $2.95 extra, with no guarantee or even indication of toppings being GF.

It's true that some gluten free breads and alternatives to the "real stuff" are as appetizing as cardboard, but I'm increasingly impressed by some of the gluten free foods I'm discovering. Please share your favourites in the "share your local knowledge" box above.

Crisp (NOT Crust) in Flemington - you wouldn't even know it's gluten free! You'll thank me if you try the lamb souvlaki pizza. Great online ordering.

Thanks worth knowing about. Agree with you re Dominos. Cardboard might taste better.

Mad Moose at Yarraville...an amazing array of flavours and great service. Cater for parties. Our family use it often for family get-togethers as several of us are coeliac.

Leovorno Pizza and Pasta, 231 Murrumbeena Rd, Murrumbeena is fantastic! The gluten free is extremely tasty and as I am unable to have onion or garlic, I asked if the tomato base has either of these in it which it doesn't, so I am one happy little camper!
