Ok, ok, I’ve been a bad gluten free blogger – partly because I am slightly obsessed with my newish Tumblr blog, The Stone Wall.
There have been so many things I’ve wanted to share, like the New York Times article exposing how much our poor wallets are exploited for buying simple gfree items or how Twitter has become an invaluable resource for finding local gluten free goodies. But, my friends, what I am going to share tonight is short and sweet: I.FOUND.GOOD.PIZZA.
Yes, you heard me right. I had a pizza night – and not a “have to go and pick it up myself and pay double the price of normal pizza” pizza night. Belly’s Pizza of Roswell provides an unexpected joy to those people eating gluten free in the Roswell area. Granted, Jay and I live in Decatur, but both of our families live in Roswell, so we make frequent visits.
I stumbled across it on the Atlanta Examiner discussing the creation and use of Domata brand flour. As I read down, it mentioned a small pizza place in Roswell (!!!) that used the flour to make any of their pies gluten free. I immediately called my mom and told her I was coming to visit her that weekend
First round of ordering (the deliver to a limited areas): I ordered a classic cheese, because, well, I am a purist (boring) when it comes to pizza. They went a little heavy on the cheese, which ultimately was too heavy for the very thin crust to support. I was just pumped to be eating something that reminded me of my gluten days, but I wasn’t in love.
That was, until the second round of ordering. My mother-in-law surprised me and my fellow gfree sister-in-law with a pizza night the following week. What made all the difference? She ordered the white pizza, covered in garlic and lighter cheeses. It was delicious and crispy. It must be the lack of marinara sauce that makes the texture so much better. I could have eaten the whole pie, but unfortunately I had to share
A couple minor cons: You can only order a small gfree pizza, making sharing hard. Secondly, the to-go box for their small pizzas are very thin, which don’t provide much support for the delicate pizzas.
If you are in the Roswell area – go give this independent chain a try!
