Not your average pizza shop...

We had family visiting us this past Wednesday, and decided to go to our favorite local pizza place. The first reason it is my favorite is because it sources most of its ingredients farm-to-table, especially for what goes on top of the pizzas–there are no frozen or wilted vegetables here. Your meal can be accompanied by specialty wines, craft beers, and delicious SCD-safe salads too.

However, the second, and most important reason, is that the manager there, has worked with us to support our dietary needs. Over the past year, he has provided different kinds of pizza pans, advised us on what oil would work best for when the pizza dough goes in a super-hot oven, and finally, permitting me to carry in my very own-pre-baked SCD crust from home. I use a modified version of the crust ingredients from John's Pizza at scdrecipe.com.

Once we are settled on a table, I get to choose whatever toppings that are in season and are SCD-legal. And I always ask for cheddar instead of the regular cheese.

You should consider asking your own local pizzeria if they would do the same!
