best gluten-free pizza in Toronto

Just came from dinner at Big Mamma's Boy on Parliament where I went to try their gluten free pizza. In one word, wow! It was fresh, crispy, light, non-greasy, and the crust actually had taste and did not resemble dry cardboard as do most other gluten-free crusts I've tried.

You can choose from the menu or make your own - which I did. I had black olives, spinach, basil and wild mushrooms. As a bonus - I ordered it with rice milk cheese - as I don't eat dairy. So it was a double score for me!

It blew Magic Oven away hands down. No comparison.

HIghly recommend. Even my gluten-eating companion remarked on how good it was.

As a tip - the waitress told me that the gluten-free pizza is so popular that they often run out on Saturdays and Sundays....but you can always call ahead and reserve one.

For anyone who is gluten intolerant...or just wants a great healthy easy to digest pizza.....give it a try.

  1. We had dinner thier the other day and it was delicious...I was definitely feeling a little overwhelmed at my choices - normally very limited to a couple dishes on a menu with some substitutions at any other I could have almost the whole menu! Even my glutn loving hubby loved it. The wait was a little longer than normal places given that we were the first and only ones there for a while but if I can have selection and enjoy it without being sick after I am definitely willing to wait a few extra minutes.

    Magic Oven pizza sucks. Everytime I have ordered a gluten free pizza form there it has arrived with a soggy, doughy crust that I've had to rebake myself. For the price they charge it better be good and Cooked.....Never agian.

        Il Fornello has a spelt crust that is gluten free, I believe.

          Spelt is not gluten free I'm afraid....needs to be a rice crust.

            Oops, sorry, just checked their web site. They do have a spelt crust, but they also have a gluten free crust. I got the two mixed up in my head. Here's what it says:

            "Substitute our gluten-free Quejos crust for 3.99 more"
