Gluten-free Pizza: Delaware Health

Because few Americans can go without a slice of “pie,” there are numerous gluten-free alternatives. We tried three and rated them on a scale from 1 being poor to 5 being excellent.

Season’s Pizza

To avoid the chance of cross-contamination, Season’s buys the crust already in its own pan from the vendor. The pizza is still in the pan when it comes to the table — or your door. The crust is thin, but it can support the toppings. We had mushrooms and grilled chicken.
Crust Thin without a large roll on the edges, the crust isn’t as chalky tasting as some, but there’s a slight pasty rather than doughy quality.
Rating 3.5
Price $10.49 for a medium pizza before toppings

Grotto Pizza

This gluten-free version happily resembles a regular Grotto pie, right down to the signature swirl of sauce and cheese.
Crust Grotto makes a crust that’s more toothsome than some gluten-free versions. There’s a nice, fat, doughy lip around the edge. There’s still a sweeter quality than you’ll find in conventional dough, but unless you tasted one next to the other, you might not notice a difference.
Rating 4.5
Price $9.99 for a 9-inch personal pizza

Amy’s Rice Crust Cheese Pizza

As far as frozen pizzas go, this is a decent version, even with the rice crust. You’ll need to finish it with a quick broil to brown the cheese, and it’s better with your own toppings added. There are dairy-free, spinach and roasted vegetable versions with a rice crust.
Crust There’s a cookie-like quality to the crust. It’s snappy and takes some time to chew, which isn’t a bad thing. Watch that it doesn’t burn.
Rating 3
Price $7.49 for a large cheese pizza.
