gluten-free Pizza In Blacksburg, Va?

Recommended Posts

No, but I have been told that Zeppoli's Italian keeps gluten-free pasta on hand. Haven't been there to test it or called them, though.

I don't think there are any gluten-free pizza places in Blacksburg, I might be a little hesitant to even order one if it is made with regular pizzas. The best gluten-free pizza I have ever had though is at Eats health food store in the frozen section, made by Glutino, it is amazing!

Hi. I'm new to the gluten free walk. I think I cried a little when it looked like I would need to give up so many good foods. Are there good and less expensive places to get gluten? I'm afraid to eat anything any more. I hope this gets easier in time.

It definitely gets easier, although the eating out and socializing thing will always be something of a challenge. I've been gluten-free for 8 years now.

When eating at home, there are so many things that are just naturally gluten-free. Meat, vegetables, fruit, eggs, plain rice and so on. Quite a few processed foods are also gluten-free. And many things you would think you'd need to be afraid of -- hot dogs, sausages, prepackaged deli meat, bacon, cheeses -- are almost without exception gluten-free (read the ingredients or call the manufacturer).

Yes, eating out is tougher. I'd take it easy eating out until you heal, but later you can check out Five Guys burgers (no bun), the Low Carb Thickburger at Hardees, BBQ places (no bun), El Rodeo (tacos, enchiladas, guacamole), and even the food bar at Kroger (talk to the main chef). At Tech's dining places you can even find food ingredients online, although I'd guess the chance for contamination is fairly high because of the volume they cook.

Feel free to ask me any other questions.

good luck

I started my gluten-free diet when in Blacksburg, Virginia. I graduated 2007 from Tech (yes same time as the shooting) and then have since left. I don't remember any gluten-free pizza places. It was nice that most of the Krogers have separate little health sections which is where I found some frozen gluten free items, like Amy's rice pizza and her cheese enchiladas.
