Are you gluten free? If so, please spread the word about gluten free pizza.  It's not the carboard crust, disgusting taste, or evil food the gluten folks think it is.  In fact, many won't even try anything gluten free for fear it'll taste different or bland or just wrong.

I am gluten free. This is not a problem for me, but for others, like my husband, he freely takes all my gluten, and I'm ok with that.  Finding a great gluten free pizza on a Friday night to go with a glass of wine or a beer is always a discussion.   However, if you dig a little, you will find plenty of options for gluten free, delicious pizza, especially in a foodie place like the Seacoast.

According to HungryHowie.com, there are many health reasons to insist on gluten free crusts. Minimizing the amount of gluten we eat can help in many areas.  Here's what gluten can do to your body.

Gluten free diets help you feel better overall by helping to lower cholesterol levels and reduce bloating caused by gluten, insulin levels, cancer risks, and risk of heart disease.

That's enough for me to feel healthier eating gluten free.  Honestly, most of these pizzas are so good, you wouldn't know it's GF.  You can get all the same toppings on a regular pizza, except maybe fried eggplant.  Buffalo chicken bacon pizza? Yes, please.
