Gluten Free Pizza at Stella’s in Poulsbo!

August 6th, 2010 at 11:50 am by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie

BREAKING GLUTEN FREE NEWS - Stella's Pizza & Pasta has made a big addition to their menu - Gluten Free Pizza! Well, I guess all of my wishful thinking has made it happen ...
When I talked to the owner, Susan Baker,
and asked what was the reason behind this new additon to the menu she said " ... actually one of their best customers at Stella's would bring in frozen Gluten Free pizza crusts so his child could eat out at a real pizza place." Stella's would add their toppings and make the pizza for them. Susan owns both Stella's Italian Dining in Poulsbo and Spiro's Pizza & Pasta in Gig Harbor. She decided that after additional requests for Gluten Free pizza, "maybe it was a good idea to add it and see what happens."

I am thinking they will be very busy after the Gluten Free Foodies hear about this!

As an added bonus from now through September 30, 2010 if you show them this posting you will get $2 off your Gluten Free Pizza!

The crust is thin and sturdy so it holds up to a loaded pizza. They make all of their sauces fresh daily, so they know they are Gluten Free! (Unfortunately the meat sauce is not.) Marinara, Pesto and White Sauce are all ready for the Gluten Free pizza lover to enjoy once again. The menu includes pizza creations like -

Greek Veggie (pictured with fresh the roma tomatos on top!) - Artichoke Hearts, Sun-dried Tomato, Feta, Tomato Sauce and Mushrooms $13.75.

Mediterranean - Pesto, Chicken, Olives, Artichoke Hearts, Roasted Red Peppers, Sun-dried Tomatoes, Feta and Mozzarella (pictured below) $14.75.

White Pizza - Bacon Bits, Spinach, Sliced Pepperoni, Pine Nuts, Black Olives and White Sauce! $13.75. (You had me at Bacon Bits ... !)

These are just $1 more than their regular pizza and are 10 inches. Great deal!

They even have an Oyster and Onion Pizza ... hmm that is something I never heard of on a pizza but who knows?

There are so many more great pizza creations on the menu that you will just have to go to see and taste for yourself. You will not be disappointed. You can actually taste the fresh sauces and all of the layers of toppings. You can also create your own favorite combination!

I have been driving by Stella's at 19980 10th Avenue NE in Poulsbo, every time I go to Central Market. I have somewhat of a chant or mantra that goes something like this ...

Oh please, please, please serve Gluten Free pizza soon!

So I guess the Gluten Free gods were listening and made it happen!

When I walked into the restaurant I was surprised and happy to see such a warm, spacious and tastefully decorated establishment. I felt as if I were walking into someone's home. Fun and creative artwork on the walls, nice lighting and warm rich woods. This is the kind of place where you could hang out with your family and friends for hours and eat really great Gluten Free Pizza!

They also have a Banquet Room with doors. The Banquet Room is available for meetings or events. I asked Susan if there was a fee for the room and she said no fee but the group must make a reservation and order food and beverages! How great is that? I know the Gluten Free Foodies will be meeting there on a regular basis for our monthly meetings!
Stella's Italian Dining - 360 697 4992
19980 10th Ave NE Poulsbo, WA
Spiro's Pizza & Pasta - 253 851 9200
3108 Harborview Drive (downtown) Gig Harbor, WA

Don't forget to bring this posting to Stella's or Spiro's in Gig Harbor to get your $2 off your Gluten Free pizza and tell the you saw it on GLUTEN FREE FOODIES.


P.S. Thank you to "the father and the Gluten Free child" for bringing in the frozen pizza and getting the Gluten Free idea into Susan's mind. Looking forward to seeing you at Stella's soon!
Big thanks to Susan for making a great new Gluten Free addition to her menus!


Gluten Free Pizza Delivery by Jet City

May 28th, 2010 at 1:52 pm by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie
I know it is that time of year for the annual ... soaking we get for Memorial Weekend!
It is what I like to call "SoakFest" aka Folklife Festival in downtown Seattle. Nothing like being in a mosh pit in the rain for 3 days!

Look at it this way ... when the sun finally comes out and warms up it will be so worth it! Right?

Well, in the meantime I have an idea that will help ease the cold winter blues at the end of May ...

Gluten Free Pizza delivered to your door from Jet City Pizza.

I went to the newest location in Bremerton and picked up my own. I didn't realize that it is not a dine in location, so please plan to pick it up and eat elsewhere if you are like me and not in the delivery area. The delivery area is within 15 minutes of their 6 locations including Bremerton, Wedgewood, Newcastle, Meadowdale, Kenmore and Everett.

The pizza was actually really good! The crust is thin and crispy with a buttery herb flavor. The sauce is real Italian marinara. I usually get Italian Sausage and red onion on all of my pizzas to do a fair comparison. I must say that they do not put a ton of toppings on, so if you like a lot ask for double! (Not that light toppings is a bad thing, but it is good to know.) I went back a second time to see if there was a difference of my overall experience.
Hey ... I am so there for you and want to make sure I give you good info!

Guess what? the pizza was exactly the same! I think that is so great - every time you know what to expect ... right?

When you call in be sure to say Gluten Free Pizza first and then they will explain which toppings are good for GFF. The range is $15 -$25 for a medium to large pizza.
I think the price is reasonable, I spent around $17 for a 2 topping medium pizza.
Call 360 377 4488 for the Bremerton location.
1554 NE Fairgrounds Road, Suite 1B

Better yet tell them that
Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie sent you and get
$3 off your pizza!



Update to Garlic Jim’s – Q&A Gluten Free Pizza

March 3rd, 2010 at 4:54 pm by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie

Garlic Jim’s Famous Gourmet Pizza

Gluten-Free Pizza Frequently Asked Questions

1. How does Garlic Jim’s protect against cross-contamination?

Garlic Jim’s has specific procedures in place to protect against cross-contamination. We store our gluten-free (GF) crusts in a separate place in our walk-in coolers and sauce them using dedicated spoodles (combination spoon/ladle) and dedicated sauce containers. We place a GF crust on a dedicated GF screen and use GF peels and cutters to remove the pizza from the oven and cut it prior to delivery or pickup. We also use separate towels to clean our GF pizza cutters to ensure that there is no cross-contamination.

Further, we slap our regular pizzas in a GF flour mix so all the flour flying around in our stores is actually GF.

Our staff is trained to wash their hands before beginning the preparation of a GF pizza and to use special care not to bring the GF crusts into contact with anything that might lead to cross-contamination.

2. How important is the Gluten Free Food Service Accreditation from the Gluten Intolerance Group?

The Gluten Free Food Service Accreditation from the Gluten Intolerance Group is very important because it validates our efforts to maintain an environment free from cross-contamination and assures our valuable gluten-free customers that we are a safe place to enjoy pizza.

3. How many pizza chains have obtained this certification?

As of December 2009, Garlic Jim’s Famous Gourmet Pizza was the only pizza chain to receive Gluten Free Food Service Accreditation from the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America.

Garlic Jim’s BBQ wings, Ribs, Gourmet Cheesecake and certain flavors of Haagen-Dazs ice cream are all gluten-free.

14. Is there a coating on the BBQ wings and if so, what is used instead of wheat?

Our BBQ wings are glazed with: pepper sauce (aged cayenne pepper, vinegar, salt), soybean oil, water, nonfat dry milk, xanthan gum and propylene glycol alginate. They do contain SOY and MILK.

15. Are there plans for more gluten-free products?

We are always looking for gluten-free products to add to our menu and welcome suggestions from our customers.

This was sent to me by one of my local Gluten Free Foodies. She had some specific concerns, questions and contacted the company. She forwarded the information above from the company.
