Gluten Free Chocolate White Chocolate Cheesecake

Happy Tuesday friends AND Happy last day of March!

I can’t believe how quickly March flew by – hopefully the start of April means we’ll have warmer days. I mean, can Spring officially start already?! I know those of you in Boston are nodding your head in agreement. Yes please.

I wanted to check in with you guys yesterday and tell you about the yummy supper I had on Sunday afternoon, but the day got away from me.

I wonder why…..

This kid smiles with his WHOLE face! Eyes, tongue, cheek – squeal! I love him.

So better late than never you guys because my meal on Sunday was AWESOME!

Local friends run, don’t walk, to Patrick Jane’s Gourmet Pizza Bar in Cary.

Gluten Free options? OH YEAH – they have them. They have TONS of them! And the pizza….

is so good!

I honestly haven’t been able to get this meal out of my mind. I even thought about driving over yesterday and getting a few pies to go – I’m obsessed!

With over 33 different pies available, I had a tough time choosing. In fact, everyone at our table had to ask for more time to consider; they all sound so good!

I ended up choosing the Artichoke GF Mini:

and I was so excited to see this little sticker on my pizza board when it arrived:

Even when you trust the restaurant, there is something extra comforting about additional indicators from the kitchen that your food is gluten free. I love the different plates at PF Changs and Bella Monica in Raleigh; so I was happy to see that Patrick Jane’s is using a sticker to put their diners at ease.

My only regret – that I didn’t order a bigger pie! Or a second pie….or a third pie. I wish I had had leftovers!

Luckily Patrick-Jane’s has plenty of gluten free desserts, so when my pie was gone I had a tasty treat to hold me over.

When the dessert arrived, I was a tiny bit skeptical. It just looked too good. My waitress was kind enough to call the owner and ask about the specific ingredients in the crust. Yep, it was gluten free. And yep, it was amazing.

Also amazing, the customer service! The entire staff, from our waitress to the floor manager, were super knowledgeable about gluten free and I completely trusted that my meal would be safe for me to eat.
