Now, where were we?
Anytime I make the trip to SC to see my family, I always end up making a pit stop at my bestie’s house in Huntersville. It’s way more fun to make the trip with someone; PLUS I’ll use any excuse to see my bestie and her fam!
Joan is always researching restaurants near her that are friendly to gluten haters, and I was so excited when she said she had a new pizza joint for us to try!
Fuel Pizza Café in Davidson, NC!
Fuel Pizza was started by some guys from New York who really wanted a good pizza option in Charlotte. Turns out, everyone loved it, and they now have several locations in that area! Pizza, wings, salads, sandwiches, and NOW…gluten free pizza!
We placed our order at the counter, and found a picnic table outside. Lil’ Gluten Loves Me was anxiously awaiting her gluten-y pizza.
Luckily, I had a Redbridge to hold me over
After a short wait, Ella’s pizza arrived. She dutifully handed out the paper plates that came along with it, and then asked me “Why you not eat my pizza Aunt April?” How do you explain Celiac Disease to a 2 1/2 year old?! I responded with, “Because I’m waiting on my pizza.” This seemed to make sense, and she dug right in to hers!
Not long after their pizza arrived, a gentleman that I’m assuming is the manager, brought out my pizza:
AND he brought out paper plates that he “knew were gluten free”. How smart is that?!
My toppings: red sauce, mozzarella, mushroom, spinach, red onion, and garlic
BEST PIZZA EVER!
I went online and looked at the ingredients in the crust, and they have done it right! Flaxseed meal!! Olive oil!!! Honey!!! Yes please!
And thin! Oh baby, it’s thin.
In order of best to worst:
NUMBER ONE: Fuel Pizza Café
NUMBER TWO: Brixx
NUMBER THREE: Mellow Mushroom
Fuel Pizza’s gluten free pizza makes Mellow Mushroom’s gluten free pizza seem…gross. It’s true.
Now. If I can just convince them to open a location in Durham
