Gluten-free Pizza In Orlando?

Recommended Posts

I actually live in Orlando (have been here 8 months now) and here's what else I have found:

If you're going to Celebration, the Columbia Restaurant has some choices. No separate menu, but I have the black bean soup, Columbia 1905 salad, and yellow rice with no problems at all. Most of the menu is "use your common sense" - I've had grilled steak and chicken there with no problems, but I always ask to make sure the grill is clean. It's a bit pricier than some of the places on here, but it's really good.

Pizza Fusion is finally open on Sand Lake Road in Orlando. It's in the heart of the tourist area, and as previously said, kind of expensive, but it IS good.

In Downtown Disney, the Rainforest Cafe is a great place to eat. When I explained to my waiter about my issues, he had one of the chefs come to my table to discuss my meal. I didn't know we were going beforehand so I didn't call ahead or anything, but the entire Disney corporation is great about food allergies.

Any of our well-know food chains with gluten-free menus, of course (Outback, Chili's, etc).

My personal favorite is a local Mexican place, located just off 417, on Orange Blossom Trail, called Azteca D'Oro. I've eaten there many times with no issues. They fry the chips in separate oil, the salsa is great, the food is yummy and filling, and the margaritas are amazing. This is a little farther from the touristy areas, but it's safe Mexican and very affordable.

Maybe I just went on a bad day, but I was not impressed with the pizza at Pizza Fusion at all. It wasn't yucky or anything, it just wasn't good, either. There's a restaurant in Sarasota that makes awesome pizza called Vertoris that I suppose has spoiled me with really great pizza (and a huge gluten-free menu: http://www.vertorispizza.com/pdf/Gluten-free%20Menu.pdf). I had tried to go to Scalini's that day, but when we got there, they said they were out of the gluten free crust. In the future I'll call first, since it is a bit of a ways away from the parks.

Really looking forward to trying Azteca D'Oro now!

Pizza Fusion should be a good choice. They have great food and really good pizza. I would check them out or just see if any of the other restaurants have a gluten free entree.

There are a few gluten free restaurants with gluten free pizza in the Orlando area. To me, there are really only two good ones though. They are BJs Brewery and Red Brick Pizza. Both are found in multiple locations. Bjs Brewery has some of the best pizza i have ever had!
