Gluten Free Doughballs at Pizza Express!

This is not a drill – Pizza Express are finally doing gluten free doughballs! I’ve eaten at Pizza Express many times over the years (it is one of my recommended places to grab a coeliac-friendly meal in London), and the doughballs have always given me serious food envy. It may seem like a small thing, but it sucks to be the one eating salad when everyone else is tucking into doughballs and garlic bread! (I’m sure my fellow coeliacs will know what I’m talking about). It will be great to have a decent gluten free starter to share…or keep all for yourself. 😉 I am so glad Pizza Express have listened to the feedback of carb-crazy coeliacs like me. Read more about the doughballs here. They should be available in restaurants as of now – I hope to try them ASAP! Have any of you tried them yet? Issi x P.S. Check the offers section of the Pizza Express website before visiting – you can usually get some sort of discount. Sign up for your FREE printable Coeliac Guide to Eating Out Gluten …

Eating out: Gluten-free at Pizza Express

I used to avoid Pizza Express like the plague. One too many times being told that the only thing I could eat was the salad leaves (no dressing, no croutons, eugh) had led to me crossing the restaurant off my list. I was overjoyed when last year there was a sudden influx of Italian restaurants doing the gluten-free thing, and finally, FINALLY I could order a gluten-free pizza at a restaurant, without having to take my own base or worry (too much) about cross-contamination. Pizza Express, Zizzi, Bella Italia, Pizza Hut…and er, Domino’s. Pizza Express is the one I keep returning to. Here’s why. First off, they have a great gluten-free menu. Pizza Express have clearly put some effort into making this. From their website: ‘We’ve worked hard to ensure that you can be fully confident of no issues on entering any PizzaExpress. This includes changing processes in our kitchens – including labelling and storage, using new equipment only for gluten-free food, as well as changing the flour we use for tossing and stretching our …
