Gluten Free in the Upper Midwest

Pizza! November 17, 2009

ahhh, pizza~ a favorite for kids and adults alike. thankfully, there seem to be more and more pizza restaurants across the metro that are offering gluten free pizzas. however, for those on a casein-free diet as well, it can pose additional problems. Pizza Luce offers a solution to the GFCF diet~ it has a vegan soy cheese. and boy is the pizza good! they offer it only in the St Paul and Minneapolis locations as of now, but they seem to slowly add more locations over time. they now offer their gluten free menu 7 days a week! (previously just Tues and Weds). and if you can tolerate dairy, they have an extensive menu full of GF options.

Galactic Pizza in Uptown also offers a vegan soy cheese, however, they don’t quite have the same delectable choice of seasonings as Pizza Luce. but the price is a bit more reasonable, so that’s a bonus.

Z Pizza in Roseville also offers a soy cheese, but I believe there is casein in it. they have lots of creative pizzas, and is a national chain.

other pizza places in the region are Godfathers Pizza in Brooklyn Park, which is very proud of their efforts to abate cross-contamination, and I believe the locations in Burnsville, St Cloud, Rochester, and Zimmerman also do GF pizzas. Park Tavern in St Louis Park also offers GF pizzas (including a taco pizza!), plus it’s part of a bowling alley, so it’s perfect for parties. Biaggi’s (in Maple Grove and Eden Prairie)┬ánot only has GF pizzas, but pasta with a plethora of sauces and many other dinner options. Roulette’s Pizza is located in Victoria, and I believe they have a yeast-free (and gluten-free) crust.

other pizzerias include Pizza Flame in Coon Rapids, the classic Red’s Savoy Pizza in Coon Rapids and Hugo, Zebra Pizza in Ramsey, Fresh Picked Pizza in Shoreview, Donatelli’s in White Bear Lake, Leonardo’s pizzeria in Mahtomedi, Ronnally’s Pizza in Woodbury, Bella Pizza has locations in both Cottage Grove and Inver Grove Heights, and Eden Pizza is in St Paul. again, many of these places have options other than pizza as well.

both Cooqi and Bittersweet bakeries offer GF pizza crusts, many of which are used in the restaurants across town. note that Cooqi’s are vegan (casein-free), and Bittersweet does take-n-bake.
