Pizza... gluten free and "skinny" is coming to Addison Texas!

Everyone who must eat gluten free knows that it is of the utmost importance to keep every bite full of good nutrition (because it's to easy to get caught up in a cloud of empty calories and sugars with mainstream gf products).

Enter Skinny Pizza!  Ok, not yet - but soon! 

"CultureMap reports that the brand new concept will open its doors at 4970 Addison Circle Dr. in a space that formerly housed Patrizio’s. The new concept will bring quick-fired thin crust pies that can be made with gluten-free or whole wheat crusts for those who are really trying to keep things healthy.
Also on offer are “egg- and cholesterol-free, low in sodium, and high in fiber” pastas that can be served with a variety of Italian sauces and jazzed up with a massive selection of veggies. Organic salads and “100% natural drinks” will round out the menu," as reported by Amy McCarthy of Eater Dallas.

I can't wait to patronize this establishment with my entire family - #FoodForEveryone!

Sad to say, Bloomberg fails to point out how good it is for those of us that do.

What's not on a label can hurt you.

Here's a link to a great article that gives insight to a very typical problem for people who must eat gluten free: not all products without a gluten ingredient are 'gluten free'.

In other words - DON'T ASSUME a product is gluten free unless the label says so.
