Flatbread Gluten-free pizza + whoppie pie= a very happy boy!
Recently, we had a nice lunch at the Flatbread Pizza Company at their Bedford, Ma. location. It’s great to be able to visit a restaurant where the family can get gluten-free pizza but this place is also great because the franchise supports local farms, uses organic and natural ingredients, free range meats and nitrate free pepperoni. Upon entering, we immediately viewed a board of the daily specials and listed on one side were gluten-free choices! Of course my kids
Gluten-free caramelized onion, mushroom and sundried tomato pizza
were thrilled when I told them they could order a gluten-free whoppie pie! In fact, once we were seated all thoughts of pizza left their minds and they only wanted the whoppie pie! So we compromised by ordering dessert at the same time as the pizza. It was quite a treat for them.
Though their website does not have a gluten-free menu, it is listed on the regular menu at the restaurant. The gluten-free pizza crust is purchased from Mommy’s Muffins and is dairy, egg and soy free. A gluten-free pizza can be substituted for any of the regular pizzas except for the bbq pork pizza because it contains beer. Speaking of beer, you can have a glass of Redbridge with your meal. And as far as dessert goes, there is ice cream for those that can have dairy or the whoppie pie which is dairy and soy-free (contains eggs). The server also offered us a whoppie pie topped with ice cream and hot fudge sauce. Maybe next time!
