Gluten-free pizza - Stone Hearth in Cambridge

i just wanted to put a plug out there for the gluten-free pizza at stone hearth in cambridge.

i am an adventuresome eater, but one of those celiacs who believe that certain things were just not meant to be gluten-free... pizza being one of them. some things just cease to be what you say they are if you try to make them without flour.

for this reason i was deeply skeptical about stone hearth's new gluten free menu, particularly since the reviews have been mixed out there for the place in general, see:

BUT - my roommate talked me into it and i was very, very pleasantly surprised. it may be that it's been so long that i forgot what a pizza was supposed to taste like, but who cares - i'm all about a placebo effect. for those gluten-free people who just want a nice thin crust slice of pie that is recognizable as such, i highly recommend it.

we tried the margherita and the "farm fresh". the margherita was less exciting, if i got it again i would ask for extra cheese and more basil. but the farm fresh was actually quite good - a flavorful mix of roasted tomatoes and peppers, olives, artichoke hearts, etc.

we happen to live right around the corner, so the pizza survived the take-out (though if you have far to go i would recommend just eating in). they carry green's belgian style gluten-free beer at downtown liquors in davis square (i can't choke down the other varieties of GF beer - too sweet, not beer), so we picked up a six-pack of that and had my first pizza and beer night in many years. extremely, extremely satisfying.
