Ah yes, gluten-free folks. They run in packs these days. Whether they're true celiacs, modern day paleo dieters, or finicky wannabes, they still like to get down on some pizza. Luckily, local pizzerias are fairly conscious of these of particular diners, and thanks to Denver-based Udi's, some of these people now enjoy the luxury of making their own pizza at home. Eater chatted with Marcia Polas, "Adventures in Gluten-Free" blogger for Gabby Gourmet about pizzerias that do the whole gluten-free thing the right way. Her favorite? Pizzeria Locale in Boulder: "Yes, even cold, it was 'the best pizza' I have ever had. Or at the very least, gluten-free pizza so good it made me want to cry."
While diners can expect to shell a few extra bucks for gluten-free pies, Polas says it only makes sense considering restaurateurs have more expenses when it comes to stocking gluten-free items. "No one with celiac disease wants to be a nightmare, and thankfully, local restaurants are doing a damn good job taking care of us."
