This is a post for Kevin's Friend. So your Gluten Free! Don't worry; your life is not over. I heard you were having a hard time finding Pizza and lamenting the loss of beer. FEAR NOT! There are several places that make a good Pizza and several alternative alcohol beverages that are all safe to eat and drink. Biaggis, Zebra Pizza, and some God Father's make excellent GF' pizza's. What Bear and I have taken to however, is making our own. Udi's makes a pre-made crust. They come two in a bag. This crust is absolutely yummy and does not crumble apart. Every Wednesday is pizza night at our house.
There now. Don't these look lovely? Mine is a white pizza made with Classico Alfredo sauce, mushrooms, black olives, fresh basil, oregano, savory, and four different types of cheese. Absolutely indulgent. Bear's pizza is made with Pastorelli Italian Chef Pizza sauce, 70% fat free turkey peperoni, black olives, pizza seasoning, and four different types of cheese. The cheese we use is a soft Mozzarella, extra sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded Mozzarella, and Parmesan. It's fun to make your own pizzas, healthier, and in the long run cheaper.
Now as for beer... I have yet to find a good GF beer. GF beer smells so horrible that I have never been able to take a sip; and if I don't like it I'm not going to drink it. I like to have a small glass of something with dinner every once in a while. There are several other forms of alcohol that are safe to drink. Here is a partial list of alcohol that is for the most part safe. You will want to check all of the labels on these yourself before you drink. Remember, anything with wheat is not safe but anything with malt is also not safe..
Bourbon, brandy, hard ciders, champagne, cognac, gin, Kahlua, Mead, Ouzo, Sake, Scotch Whisky, Sherry, Tequila, Vermouth, Vodka, and Wine are all safe. Remember to check each label. I'm sure there are others, but this is what I've found so far. Take care, drink and eat responsibly, good luck and feel free to email me with any questions.
