Gluten free pizzas in Brisbane that can’t be topped

The Italian lover’s worst nightmare: being gluten free. A life of watching people walk away with food they just offered you because they forgot you couldn’t eat it; a life destined for trawling through menus looking for that little sparkle of hope that those two simple letters bring – the G and the F, shining in the light amidst the pastry and flour. Well stress no more glutard friends, we’ve got an end to the pitiful expressions when you tell people you can’t eat pizza. While your mates scramble over the last piece, you can sit pretty with your entire pizza that is gluteny HANDS OFF. Here dietary challenged friends, is your master list of the best gluten free pizzas Brisbane has to offer. De Pascale | Chermside Quite possibly the cheapest gluten free pizza you will find in Brisbane. At only $10, these take-away only goods are worth the drive. On the classics galore menu, try the White Marinara with tomato, cheese, anchovies, capers, black olives, garlic, oregano, or lean in for a bite of the Pisa, with tomato, cheddar, mozzarella, camembert, blue, mushrooms and rosemary. Tinderbox | Fortitude Valley It’s true, we’ve got a crust on the house made GF pizza bases at Tinderbox. The flame was first lit by the tinder loving care of their Catalonian pizza topped with caramelised onion, smoked red capsicum, Catalonian fennel salami and artichoke that makes us want to swipe right. Cheesy puns aside…get on that. Sugo Mi Pizzeria | Bulimba If the arresting flavours of Sugo Mi’s Arrostita with its slow roasted pork, caramelised onion, mozzarella, aged balsamic and rocket don’t have you drooling, the roast pumpkin, pine nuts, goats cheese, mozzarella, rosemary and aged balsamic toppings of the Zucca are certainly worth the dough. To slice the cost though, Sunday to Thursday 5-6pm is cheaper pizza hour, so now there’s no excuse. Pizza Caffe | UQ St Lucia Students and pizza, Romeo and Juliet – love affairs to withstand time. But you don’t need to be a student to enjoy the Italian icons that grace the UQ Pizza Caffe menu. Grab a GF pizza topped with roasted chicken, baby spinach, ricotta and grilled capsicum, prop an open textbook somewhere nearby and you’ll fit right in. Brewski | Caxton St If the Monday 2-4-1 deal or the Tuesday Pizza deal hasn’t got you to Brewski already…what are you doing? But actually, the Will Ferrel pizza would make the man himself proud, with pulled pork, mushrooms, olives, red onion, smoky BBQ sauce, and mozzarella. It’s kind of a big deal. Pizzeria Violetta| Kenmore Pizzeria Violetta is bringing real game in terms of GF bases. If you haven’t munched your way through any of their gourmet delights, we recommend starting now because you’re going to knead to try them all. To give you an idea, the Boscaiola is layered with mozzarella, porcini mushrooms, bresaola, taleggio and truffle oil. Told you. Two Sisters | Milton Not only are the girls looking after gluten free folk, their Tofutti vegan cheese means no one has to miss out on one of the world’s favourite meals. They boast a total of 12 different veg options, but meat eaters shouldn’t even think about going pasta the Sisters’ Supreme, with pepperoni, cabanossi, leg ham, bacon, prawns, mushroom, green capsicum, red onion, Kalamata olives and oregano. Gimme a pizza-that! The Burrow | West End Tossing the pizza of conformity out the window, you can be a Lucky Peach and dig into pizzas (gf of course) topped with charred stone fruit, red onion, fire-roasted pepper strips, burrata, tomato sauce, Abruzzo-style ham, maple caramel and herbs. We know what you’re thinking, but swear on my Nonna, it works. No more sticking to salad for you, not with these gluten free pizzas in Brisbane to hunt down! Words by Moira Kennedy
