Naked Pizza In Union Square!

About a year ago, I mentioned that Naked Pizza was coming to Union Square and it has finally arrived!  I was able to try it out for the first time a few weeks ago and the pizza was delicious!  In fact, I also had a pizza delivered last week (free delivery!) and it arrived extremely fast!

The gluten free crust is only available in a 12'' size and you have the option to dress it up with pretty much any vegetable, meat, and/or cheese you can think of.  The ingredients used in the gluten free crust include:

  • rice flour
  • water
  • corn starch
  • tapioca dextrin
  • non-fat dry milk
  • whole eggs
  • sugar
  • salt
  • xanthan gum
  • baking powder
  • soybean oil
If you visit their website at, you can actually watch a video of them preparing a gluten free pizza!

For more information, visit their website or visit them in NYC at:
150 East 14th Street (between Irving Place and Third Avenue) 
954 Third Avenue (between 57th and 58th streets)

They also have many locations throughout the United States and Dubai.

Gluten Free Italian Cuisine in Park Slope!

Recently, I got to try out Scottadito Osteria Toscana, an Italian restaurant in Park Slope, Brooklyn.  They offer gluten free pasta and include pasta entrees on their brunch, lunch, and dinner menus.

I went for brunch and had a delicious gluten free penne pasta with melted brie, arugula, and truffle oil (see photograph).

Scottadito Osteria Toscana is located at 788A Union Street between 6th and 7th Avenues.  For more information, please visit their website at
