When we were in the Cleveland area for the Celiac Tour Riley really wanted pizza. I asked around while at the tour and was told I had to try Tommy’s Pizza & Chicken. I looked it up online and was quite pleased to see a gluten free tab on their site. I was even more pleased to see at the bottom of the gluten free page that they link to Celiac disease information and support group.
It is so refreshing to see a gluten free menu that is more than just a pizza. And I was oddly excited that my garlic cheesy bread and pizza came out sealed shut with gluten free stickers! The girl working the register clearly didn’t care about my excitement and even kinda seemed annoyed. But it was nice to see a place take gluten free serious.
It looked like normal gluten filled food. I was so worried that since they were doing everything right and it looked amazing that it would in return suck. We’ve all been there… Order or open a new gluten free item, it looks great but omg the awful taste/after taste. So not the case with Tommy’s gluten free! As I’m writing this post, I am missing the garlic cheesy bread. Riley couldn’t wait to try it since he is in love with anything covered in cheese. He ate more of it than the pizza and didn’t want to share it with me.
The pizza looked almost the same as my friend’s regular pizza. They tasted ours and said they couldn’t really taste a difference. My pizza test is how does it taste the next day cold for breakfast. The picture above is my slice for breakfast. I am very happy to say that pizza was amazing in the morning. I had planned on having some for the drive home but we ended up eating it all while at my friends place.
I highly recommend Tommy’s Pizza & Chicken. Riley already has another weekend trip to Cleveland planned. He wants to see the new Muppet movie (that doesn’t come out till March) with Amanda, get Tommy’s pizza and Pure DeLite cupcakes.
I’m kinda jealous of the gluten free food choices the Cleveland/Parma/ Strongville area has to offer.
