GF Pizza in SD

Pizza Fusion

Whether you like your pizza piled high with meat or covered in veggies, sprinkled with soy cheese or smothered with gorgonzola and feta Pizza Fusion has a pie that will please even the pickiest of palates. You can pick one of their specialty pizzas such as the scrumptious "Seattle" (topped with tomatoes, red onion, basil and garlic, drizzled with balsamic and olive oil, and sprinkled with mozzarella and parmesan) or you can opt to design your own choosing from their wide selection of tasty toppings. They also offer three different options for piling these scrumptious toppings on, white, multi grain and my personal favorite, gluten free. All of their crusts including the gluten free are served up thin style, which personally I feel is perfect for pizzas with fresh and flavorful ingredients like theirs. (If you want thicker style gluten free pizza you should try Brick Oven in Poway where they offer a thick New York style GF crust). The gluten free crust at Pizza Fusion was spot on flavor wise, had a nice bready texture and was not gummy or dense like many gluten free baked goods tend to be. It also came as a full size pizza which is a rare find in the gluten free pizza world. In addition to pizza they also have an array of tasty beverages to choose from, yerba matte teas, natural sodas, organic wines and beers (there's a gluten free beer too!).

They also have a selection of scrumptious salads (the pear and gorgonzola with balsamic vinaigrette was delish!) and for dessert they offer a rich, chocolaty, gluten free brownie.

Pizza Fusion is the perfect solution for a pizza night that will fit the tastes and dietary needs of almost everyone and a most delicious addition to the small but slowly growing selection of scrumptious gluten free eateries in San Diego.

Brick Oven

Brick Oven serves up the pizza I remember eating as a kid. Thick crust swirled with sweet tomato sauce, covered with a thick layer of melty mozzarella, and topped with peppers and pepperonis. No carb cutting or calorie counting here this is the kind of pizza you might be tempted to dab with a napkin before eating (don't do it!). If Pizza Hut and NY Giant (on Twin Peaks) were to get married this would be their baby, hearty deep dish crust topped with a generous portion of incredibly flavorful toppings. The BEST part about Brick Oven is that this intoxicatingly delicious pizza that I am raving about is completely GLUTEN FREE! Sure they have regular pizza but that's not what keeps me coming back for more. I recently went with a non GF friend and shared a gluten free pie and my friend said she could not tell the difference between it and regular gluten laden pizza and that she would be tempted to order their GF pizza even when not dining with me. If that is not a testimony to this pizza's deliciousness then I don't know what is!
