Can't beat this sign to make you feel comfortable eating gluten-free and dairy-free at a restaurant.

Can't beat this sign to make you feel comfortable eating gluten-free and dairy-free at a restaurant.

Yesterday was Field Day for the kids at school.  Of course, there was a BBQ celebration after that the GFK couldn’t eat so I did some research and we tried our first gluten-free, dairy-free pizza at a local restaurant.  I was nervous to go but did my due diligence with online research, emails and calls the day before.  We went to Beau Jo’s in Denver and it was an awesome experience.  If you are here in the Denver area or ever pass through, I highly recommend this place.

 

The Beau Jo’s online menu has all of the information you could possibly need but I went a step further and called to find out exactly what was in the dairy-free cheese and the pizza sauce.  I got an immediate response and was very comfortable with all of the answers.  The menu in the restaurant even has a top 8 allergens column that tells you exactly what is in the item you are considering.  The gluten-free crust is provided by Deby’s Gluten-Free Bakery here in Denver just to be sure there is no cross contamination in the kitchen.  Deby’s also provides on-site gluten-free desserts.  That’s right, there was an entire gluten-free dessert cooler and it was all labeled with the top 8 allergens as well.  

The GFK had a tasty pizza lunch and was thrilled to get a pizza box to take his leftovers home in.  It’s the little things that excite us!  So, we have added another restaurant to our rotation and we are very excited about it!

  1. We have been wanting to try it out. I guess we will have to make a stop there next time we are up from the springs!

    We called the one in Westminster before going and decided not to because there were too many areas for cross contamination – the sauce, the toppings, it was even questionable about the pans getting washed before the gf pizza was made in it and if they might “accidentally” dust it with flour before going in the oven. I decided it wasn’t worth the hassle when I could just throw an Amy’s pizza in the oven and we could all eat in 20 minutes – no fear.
    Anyone else have that happen?
