Cape Cod Ma - Pizza Place And Also A Bed & Breakfast

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I went to Cape Cod in Massachusetts to get married yesterday. The wedding was very small and was held on the beach in Dennis.

Because I hadn't searched for many gluten-free restaurants beforehand, we went to BZ's afterwards for pizza. They get their gluten-free pizza crusts from Good Ju Ju Bakery. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the whole gluten-free thing. Their gluten-free pizzas are made in a separate area of the kitchen and I did not get sick! Most of their specialty toppings can be done on the gluten-free crust (I'd avoid the chicken tenders or alfredo sauce toppings). I had the Medditeranean (sliced tomatoes, black olives, red onions, green peppers, feta, marinara sauce and mozzarella) and it was AWESOME! The taste and texture would be similar to a chewy crunchy thin pizza crust. The toppings were perfectly done. My mother in law had the same gluten-free pizza and she couldn't tell the difference from a gluten pizza.

The restaurant is a very causal and relaxed place (think of plastic cutlery, paper plates, plastic cups and sports on tv). The waitress was very friendly and prompt with the drinks, food and refills. I'm going there more often when I move closer to the cape!

We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast called Brewster By The Sea. The room was nice, cozy and clean. They left fresh flowers picked from their garden in our room and turned down the bed and left mints for us. They have a pool, hot tub, lovely yard and offer massages. We had breakfast prepared on site this morning and mine was gluten-free. A family with a young girl that has Celiac stays there each year and the owners of the Bed & Breakfast purchase gluten-free things for her from a local gluten-free bakery, so they know how to treat us Celiacs! We had started the meal with fresh fruit, then were served a yummy lemon sorbet. For the main course we were served an amazing vegetable frittata, sausage (best I've ever had), gluten-free biscuits for me and of course tasty coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. I left feeling very full and didn't have one single problem with gluten while staying here.

I'd definitely recommend a stay at this Bed and Breakfast, they are such nice people and their home is well maintained and comfortable. They think of everything and even gave us a little bag with a bottle of lavender oil and other goodies. They really took care of us!

    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
    • Garden of Life brand Dr. Formulated Organic Fiber. It's certified gluten free. Also free of psyllium husk, dairy and soy. Also found that just simply increasing fiber intake works wonders. Perhaps try skipping a protein for at least one meal and fill up on veggies and fruits.
    • When you're looking for answers the negative endoscopy may seem like bad news in a funny way, it did for me when the doctor told me, but really as CL said it's good.  Keep working with your doctors.  From what you've said before gluten could still be the problem.  Now you've eliminated celiac you can try removing it from your diet, but it's important that you do it safely. You don't want to cause a problem while trying to fix one. Most people get a lot of B vitamins in particular from gluten foods. So if you make a change to your diet do it with your mom, ideally involve your doctor or a dietician and keep a diary of your symptoms too, sometimes called a food journal. You may still have found your answer, don't panic and don't lose heart. Best of luck Matt
