GF pizza in Indy (Puccini's and Mellow Mushroom)

I love pizza!

Before I went GF, I ate pizza all the time and lots of it.

Fortunately, for both my wallet and waistline, GF pizza was hard to come by when I was first diagnosed, so I didn't eat nearly as much as I did pre-Celiac.

Unfortunately, now Puccini's and Mellow Mushroom have both decided to make delicious, GF pizza and only Brandie will keep me from becoming a ravenous pizza-hound again.

Both of these restaurants have excellent crusts and lots of delicious toppings. Puccini's has GF pasta as well, and on my next trip there, I'll have to try it out. We didn't try the salads, but I may have to try one next time, so Brandie can order herself some gluteny breadsticks. Their toppings list is amazingly huge. We ordered one pizza with hamburger and feta and the second with chorizo and jack cheese. I really enjoyed the chorizo because, at most places, the chorizo gives me terrible indigestion, but not at Puccini's.

Mellow Mushroom has massive salads and you can build your own which is good for me, since I like my salads with lettuce, cheese (mmm Feta!), and salad dressing. I got the salad because Brandie wanted the gluteny Mufuletta bread, but I wasn't expecting so much. For pizza, we ordered a Mighty Meaty and a cheese. The meat pizza was good, but the cheese pizza could have used a little more cheese (which is why next time I'm getting a pizza with multiple cheeses on it).

Puccini's and Mellow Mushroom are great pizza places, and although they are a bit expensive, it is totally worth the price.
