GLUTEN FREE VEGETARIAN PIZZA AT BISTANGO

If gluten-free vegetarian pizza is your interest, then the above might be considered a somewhat strange photo, but it's posted here to show how this pizza varies from the often unappetizing raw mushroom and steamed broccoli variety of vegetarian pizza so many of us are often faced with.This is by far the best presentation of the Still Riding frozen gluten-free crust I've seen. Some have been passable, but others, barely edible, with undercooked crust and rubbery and tasteless toppings.

At Bistango, the Still Riding crust is in skilled hands. Here, a gluten-free vegetarian pizza features a full-flavored marinara sauce, mozzarella, shitake and cremini mushrooms cooked to perfection, richly caramelized onions and olives providing zip to the whole production. The crust arrives with that ideal combination of crunchy and chewy you expect in a traditional thin crust pizza.

The only thing more memorable than this pizza was the service we encountered. We were a mix of omnivores, vegans and gluten free vegetarians. We all were able to enjoy Italian bread with our entrees, as well as dessert. We were welcomed as warmly as if we'd been a more standard mix of diners. No errors. Great suggestions. Adjustments to the printed menu made graciously.

Oh, and there are TWO delicious varieties of NY style cheesecake--a standard and a gluten-free. How easy is that?

Bistango, NYC? Oh, one of my best gf memories ever! Started my experience with the waiter saying, "I hear you are here for our gf menu. How is your health?" I was smitten from the start.

Many of us call restaurants gluten-free-friendly because the menus have gluten-free options. I agree, this restaurant is TRULY friendly to gluten-free folks!
