We have another option for gluten-free pizza. The Loop Pizza Grill now has a gluten-free crust available at all nine of its Jacksonville area locations.
I actually discovered this in the Loop ad last week in Mint Magazine, and checked with the company to make sure it was available at all locations. I was told the restaurants also have gluten-free buns available now at all locations for burgers and other sandwiches.
Anyway, I wanted to try the pizza, so I visited the Neptune Beach restaurant. There was nothing on the menu to indicate the gluten-free pizza was available but it is there, with a 10-inch crust. Without being able to check all the toppings to see if they were gluten free, I played it safe and ordered a pepperoni pizza.
There is a $2.50 surcharge for the gluten-free crust, which isn't really a surprise. We're all used to paying more for gluten free.
The good news is, I really liked the pizza. I thought it had kind of a New York-pizza taste to it, meaning it was very oily. I know that won't appeal to some people, but I liked it.
Yes, I'm sure I'll be eating there again.
In other pizza news, Jennifer Gornto of the glutenfreejacksonville blog says that the second Your Pie restaurant in the Jacksonville area is opening this week in Tapestry Park. Your Pie, which has a large variety of gluten-free pizza options, opened its first area restaurant in the spring in Fleming Island.
