Mariposa Bakery pizza

pizza at Mariposa

Do you live in the Bay Area? Gluten-free? Are you missing pizza?

Well, then for goodness' sake, head over to Mariposa Bakery.

When we were in Oakland, I was utterly thrilled to make an appearance for the book at this marvelous bakery. But mostly, I was excited to see the behind-the-scenes look at the bakery that makes gorgeous biscotti and brownies, available at most Whole Foods across the country now.

The people there are just lovely. Couldn't be lovelier. And when they took the Chef and me on the tour of the facilities, I had to stop myself from yelling out, "Hey, you can't cut that pizza on a wooden table. Wood traps gluten." Just a moment later, they told me, of course, that the table was brand new when they bought it. What a relief to be in a place we can trust is safe, down to where the pizza crust meets the table.

When I was there in November, the women at Mariposa Bakery were not shipping pizzas, because they wanted people to come in and have them fresh. It looks from the website that they have found the best of all worlds. Now, they ship their plain pizza crusts and let you do the rest of the work.

These are good.

Still, if you find yourself in Oakland, stop in for a pizza in this warm, airy bakery. You'll feel such a sense of ease that rarely comes from eating in a restaurant.

That does look tasty. :)

The search for gluten free pizza crust is a tough one!

Cheers!

I think I could bite into that picture. Yum. I had a GF individual pizza when visiting a friend in AL in April. It was at The Sunflower Cafe. They made their own GF pita bread and then topped it with spinach artichoke dip, Roma tomatoes, and mozzarella--all GF. My GF friend and I were skeptical so we quizzed quite a bit before eating it, but it was fabulous and safe!

I've had their pizza at that bakery -- some of the best pizza I've ever had, even before I knew I had celiac! The biscotti are amazing, too, and you can get a cheaper batch if you get the "ends and pieces." Love it!

I live in Oakland and when I learned I had to eat gluten-free this past January, I was so pleased to discover Mariposa. I buy the frozen pizza crusts and top them myself. My husband prefers it to pizza with gluten. Our favorite toppings are a BBQ pizza - BBQ sauce, onion, black beans, cilantro, corn, red pepper, and a mix of chesses. SOOOO Delicious!

Sophia, I also buy the ends and pieces - such a deal. I never ate biscotti before I was gluten free but I love this biscotti with tea in the morning.

My other favorite indulgence is their lemon poppyseed muffin - amazing. After discovering it, I had to remind myself that gluten free does not equal fat and calorie free.

wow! wow... the pizza crust is amazing. in anticipation of a pizza party being thrown for a friend's birthday, i made a special trip to buy a crust. this is better than any other i've tried. MUCH better. it has that crispy, slightly chewy texture that evade much gluten-free fare but is a requisite for pizza crust. and after i'd had my fill of my own special little pizza, my friends didn't think twice about finishing it off!

their pecan macaroons are also to die for!

Two words for you: Pizza Fusion. They just opened up here in Atlanta, and I believe they are other places as well. They offer all natural ingredients - and have a GLUTEN FREE crust. I dove into that pizza in the CAR, adn finished half of it while I was driving home. TWO thumbs up!!!
