It seems that Gluten Free pizza, or pretty much anything Gluten-Free for that matter, is gaining ground on store shelves and restaurant menu's these days. I've been Gluten-Free for five years now (well, expect for once a year for October Fest when I indulge in a couple of frosty German BBK's at the Huettenbar, NICE!).
One thing I'm sure that all us Celiacs can agree on is that the Gluten-Free pizza options are pretty bad. Well, not anymore! The folks at Father & Son Pizza/Marcello's Restaurant's have hit it out of the park!!! While I've had a couple of decent slices in San Franciso and here locally, nothing compares to the Gluten-Free pan pizza at Father & Son!! It is head and shoulders above the competition, nearly as good as regular pizza. Oh, and the gluten-free thin, as well as, the original is quite good too! Just to clarify, they already had a good start with their top notch sauce,sausage, and cheeses!!!
Here's the scoop, apparently, the owner's at Father & Son worked with the staff and a test lab for almost a year to fine tune the dough, wow is it good! Let me just say that it is a complete pain in the a.....s to make a truly gluten-free pizza in an existing commercial kitchen without making any equipment changes or modifications! Thank you for jumping through those hoops!
It looks like a new location is opening in Evanston!
