Here's the GF menu that was right on the table. 5 things I can eat. Count 'em, 5!
While in Delaware recently to take advantage of tax-free shopping for the holidays, Jenn found Seasons Pizza, and I was surprised that I hadn't heard of it before, since it's a (small) chain and there's one closer to me that the one we visited on Concord Pike in Wilmington. I asked for the GF menu when we were being seated and was delighted to learn that the menu was right on the table. Just like it's normal or something. GF items were also noted on the regular menu too. Pretty enlightened!
The menu does offer a number of things I can eat, which is terrific, and it gives me plenty of reasons to return to try new things. But, because I'm on the quest for the best local GF pizza, I had to start there. The first thing you'll note from the photos below is my lovely partner Jenn who has a regular veggie pizza. She found this place for us, and a girl could not ask for a better partner in making GF living fun and adventurous rather than a pain in the neck. Next you probably noticed that the GF cheese pizza is served on a disposable aluminum pan, demonstrating Seasons' care in avoiding cross-contamination.
The pizza was very good. The sauce was not too sweet, which I like. The crust could have been a little saltier. Or something. But in general the flavor was good and it had enough bendiness to keep me amused. The crust, like every GF crust I've encountered, was thin (and frankly, I always preferred a thin crust pre-celiac, since they tend to be less heavy and oily. Of course, now I'm pining to have the OPTION of having a thicker crust, but that's a different blog post). And some GF crusts are brittle and snap instead of act like a regular pizza in your hand. So bendiness is a quality I seek. This one passed the test with flying colors. I had Jenn try it too, for comparison to the gluteny cousin. She said it wasn't thrilling, but she wouldn't have known it was gluten-free fare.
I have to say that I love this place, and I will vote for it for future family dinners for a couple of reasons: a) A variety of GF vegetarian choices that put the merely adequate offerings at Olive Garden to shame, b) warm, family-style atmosphere and plenty of menu items I think the kids will enjoy, and c) GF menus right on the table and GF listings on the regular menu, like they want me to be there and not just that they can accommodate me if they must. Yay Seasons!
