My wife loves pizza. I mean… she LOVES pizza. She could, and would, eat it every day given the chance. We have looked for good gluten free pizza for many years. We gave up finding it and just hoped for pizza with a crust that didn’t taste like it was made from cardboard. It’s definitely a challenge. We have lucked out a few times. Once in South Beach, Florida we lucked into the best pizza (La Leggenda Pizzeria) either one of us have had. When I say it was a great pizza, I don’t mean it was great for a gluten free pizza, I mean it is a GREAT pizza. It was phenomenal. Chewy crust. It was perfect!
Since we do not live in South Beach, we came back from that trip with a renewed hope in finding a truly great gluten free pizza where we live. We found some good pizza, but not great pizza. When we didn’t find it in the restaurants around us I looked at countless recipes to try to make a great pizza. Countless attempts, countless disappointments. They were good, but not great. I settled on a focaccia bread recipe that was pretty good and used it for our pizzas.
One day I heard of a gluten free cookbook that focused on pizza. I read the reviews and people were raving about it. I researched the book a bit and found that it was written by a couple that has the same love for pizza that my wife has. They had traveled the world in search of the best pizza. Then the husband was diagnosed with celiac. They decided to travel the world again looking for the best pizza, but this time one that the husband could safely eat.
To say their cookbook is a game changer in the gluten free pizza game is an understatement. Be it the New York Style, Detroit Style or the Chicago Style they are exquisite. People would never guess they are gluten free pizzas. The crusts are chewy, airy and have a delicious flavor… and that is before you add toppings! We have not had one yet that was not good. If your house enjoys pizza as much as our household does, I really do recommend No Gluten, No Problem Pizza by Kelli and Peter Bronski. I do not know the authors, I have never spoken to or met them, but the book really is a game changer.
