gluten-free Pizza In Doylestown, Pa

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Jules Thin Crust recently has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Philadelphia magazine and on Good Morning America for leading the new thin-crust trend while using organic ingredients.

After reading the WSJ article, I went to their website and saw under the News section that they have introduced gluten-free pizza. We drove over an hour from New Jersey to try it - our five-year-old son really enjoyed it, especially as it was his first chance to eat pizza out since before he was diagnosed two years ago. The gluten-free pizza tasted just as good as the non-gluten-free pies, which are available "by the inch" rather than the slice. We were told that the only topping that is not gluten-free is the sausage.

Those of you in the Philadelphia area should definitely make the trip.

Check out Jules Thin Crust Pizza in Doylestown, PA, outside of Philadelphia. It's been written up in the Wall Street Journal, Philadelphia magazine and featured on Good Morning America as leading the thin-crust trend. They added gluten-free pizza last fall (see the News section on their web site). Tonight we took our 5-year-old son, who really enjoyed it, particularly since he has not had pizza at a restaurant since before he was diagnosed two years ago. If you're in the Philadelphia area, check it out.

Yes--we've been to Peddler' Village--not for a few years, though. My younger son, Matt, works in Langhorne--at Reedman-Toll Autoworld. He's a tech, having just completed his first year working there. We live about 30 min. from there. Small world--eh?

It is :) I would like to go back and visit sometime. I saw you had the 'e' on Langhorn...I was thinking when I wrote that it was Langhorne, but wasn't for sure. My brother went to Neshaminy HS. I'm trying to remember what school I went to! I can still remember our old address by heart :) We moved when I was in 2nd grade----long time ago!

Hi Judy & Jen

i'm fairly sure it will be in the city but we like to get out and travel around so outside the philly area is okay to.Before we drove outside the city limits quite a bit just to explore the area.We went to Passyunk(I know I didn't even come close to spelling that one) sorry!!! We went to the big shopping mall ( it's been ten years since we had to be in Philly area so I can't remember areas to well..I know for sure I was in Ben Salem....Since I live near Pittsburgh Pa our choices for shopping gluten-free are next to nothing. I thought I might find alot of things I can't get back here.I do think we will go to the Jules Pizza in Doylestown.....So anything you find will be greatly appreciated........

please e-mail me at lhasapets@zoominternet.net

What fantastic news that there is gluten free pizza in Doylestown!!!! I'm originally from Washington Crossing, PA and have recently moved to South Jersey (about 15 mintues from Philly & Delaware).

As for gluten free restaurants in Philly, I'm having a hard time finding anything. The closest I've found if PF Changs in Marlton (I'm thinking about 30 minutes from Philly). Their food is FABULOUS!

As for grocery stuff, there is a Whole Foods right in downtown Philadelphia. They carry a lot of gluten free items.

If you go to Marlton, NJ for PF Changs, you can hit Whole Foods & Trader Joes -- both grocery stores w/ gluten free sections.

I haven't checked out Mr. Ritts Bakery, but have heard great stuff about it.

I work right around the corner from Jules. The owner is super nice (Jules is his older daughter. Hers and Bella's photos are on the wall of the restaurant).

I talked to him for a while before ordering the pear, brie, rosemary, and chopped almond gluten-free pizza to find out how he cooks them away from the regular pizzas. Can we say YUMMM???

As I expected, they are pricey, but they are an unbelievable treat!

I've lived for the last 25 years in and around New Hope, PA. I also grew up not far from Washington's Crossing. Pretty out here!!

Hi Patti,

I'm in Woolwich Township/Swedesboro, NJ. We are one exit away from Mullica Hill and about 10 mintues from the Delaware border.

I'll let you know when I check out Mr. Ritts -- we are about 20 mintues from Philly now and I really want to see what kind of stuff they have.

Do you attend any Celiac groups or anything? I was diagnosed in June of 2005, right after the birth of my son, so I'm fairly new to the celiac way of life. I did attend a Gluten Free Cooking class at the Whole Foods in Princeton, NJ which was helpful. I wasn't much of a cook before going gluten free, so it's REALLY a challenge now :P

Maureen--Yes--let me know if you get to Mr. Ritts--if I get there first, I'll let you know how it was. The cooking class sounds like fun. The closest Celiac group to me is in Voorhees--that's a 45 minute drive--not counting the Rte.73 traffic!

Maureen, when did you go to the Whole Foods class? I went to one there in October or November and we tried to get the group there to meet there once a month (with store permission) and never really managed it more than once. That Whole Foods has a good selection of gluten-free foods, including the frozen baked stuff, but a lot of them are scattered and not collected in the gluten-free section. One of the managers is also celiac! Since there seem to be a lot of Jersey/PA folks in this thread, here's some shopping help for this area: north of Princeton, in Plainsboro, is a big Asian grocery store for anyone looking for cheap rice flour, tapioca, etc for making your own gluten-free flours. There's a small store at the Trenton Farmer's Market that carries a freezer full of gluten-free baked goods and some flours and pasta, but it seems even more expensive than most. There's a Wegman's in West Windsor (near Princeton) that has lots of gluten-free stuff and has a list of their own products that are gluten-free (including some "normal" cereals - a rare find!). Supposedly we are going to get a PF Chang's near the Marketfair Mall, which would be welcome since there are no good gluten-free restaurants in the area. I really want to try out Jules Pizza, especially if they open one in Newtown! Let me know if anybody wants directions to any of these places. Keep them in mind if you're in the Princeton/Trenton area.

New (brand-new) on the list.

I found this thread while doing a Google search for Jules Thin Crust--I'd read about it on a LiveJournal community called "PhillyYaks", for people of the region with Celiac disease.

Anyway, I was trying to plan my weekend (what does that say about my Monday if the day's not even half over and I'm planning my weekend already???) and I thought of JTC...

I live in Philadelphia and I've been gluten-free for almost 3 years now--the best diet I've ever been on, if not for the weight loss (there hasn't been any), then because I can simply function as a normal human being so long as I eat the right stuff.

For Mamaw, I recommend a Venezuelan restaurant in Philadelphia called SAZON. It's located on Spring Garden Street, which is about 5 blocks to the north of Market Street, at 10th Street. It's a small corner BYOB place that has, over the last year, developed quite a Celiac-following. I recommend their Arepas--corn flour patties that are out of this world. I've had nothing but fabulous axperiences there and I dine there at elast once a month. As an added bonus, the prices are super cheap. The only drawback is slow service.

Also, there's the Dietarry Shoppe on Ridge Avenue (about the 4200 block). They have a website (dietaryshoppe.com) and Chelsea, the owner, is fantastic!

For anyone looking to explore Mr. Ritt's, be sure to call ahead--it's more of a phone-in business than a browse-the-shelves type store. They do have a small selection of cookies available for walk-in purchases.

For groceries, there are two Whole Foods (one at South and 9th-ish, one at 20th and Callowhill) and there's a Trader Joe's at 22nd and Market (or there about... I don't drive, I bike, so everything is by look for me. I can get more precise directions if anyone's interested).

There is an amazing Chinese restaurant called Joseph Poon's on 10th and Cherry (downtown area) and the chef encourages diners to create their own experience: http://www.josephpoon.com/diningDesignedForYou.htm . I've been to Joseph Poon's once before, and I had an amazing meal there.

That's it for my recommendations-- FOR NOW.

Please feel free to ask me any questions and give me any new Philly dining suggestions!

Heather in Philly,

thank you so much for the Philly info.I live near Pittsburgh and there is not much here to choose from. Since four of us eat gluten-free I'm always searching for the best stuff available. I have ordered from Mr. Ritts and its pretty good. I haven't found anything that compares to Everybody Eats crusty rolls and bagettes... And the same goes for the cream puffs from Celiac Specialities and their glazed donuts.....

Do you have any favorite from Dietary specialities? I have had their ravioli's but nothing else.

I can't wait to eat Jules Pizza!!!!! That's what I really miss. PIZZA

Whoa! What's with this area? I live in Newtown, PA.....

Can't wait to go to Doylestown and check out pizza -- yippee!!!!

PF Changs is supposed to be building a place in Princeton, NJ in the near future. Can't wait.

I shop at Whole Foods and Wegmans on Rt. 1 in Princeton, too.....

In the Philly area, I eat at Siam Cuisine (Thai food) in Newtown/Buckingham-- they will cook stir fry in fish sauce instead of soy...

El Taco Loco in New Hope and Pocos in Doylestown for Mexican.

Also Los Sarapes in New Britain has EXCELLENT Mexican and they are really careful not to cross contaminate -- Great flan, too!!!!!

I haven't eaten at The Brick Hotel in Newtown since diagnosed, but I have really educated their Operations manager (my fiance') so they know something about the diet.

Longhorn steakhouse will cook a steak on foil to avoid contamination, so I sometimes eat there, too.

Cheeburger Cheeburger at Oxford Valley Mall (Langhorne) has create your own salad (we go there when he's craving a burger) AND they will wipe down the malt/shake machine for a fabulous banana shake!!!!

Could keep going, but I guess we don't all live in Bucks County. :D
