life can be hard when you develop food allergies. my friend elise and i are lactose intolerant buddies. she also has the added burden of gluten intolerance and for me, allergic to shellfish. dining out can be a serious challenge and we had both basically given up the concept of going out for pizza. however one restaurant in town offered up gluten free crust and dairy free cheeses, the grotto our mecca for dietary issue pizza bliss. then tragedy….the grotto moves to bigger location, the menu must be adjusted to handle new experiences and the first thing cut the gluten crust and dairy free cheeses. so elise and i said a big “f.u.” we’ll just do this our selves, thus was born our saturday night pizza night. gluten free crust, lots of dairy free cheese, yummy sauce with a hint of spiciness, peppers, tomatoes, and red onion. who needs the grotto when these two chicks can cook just as badass!
