My husband just returned from a Miami Beach workcation. I only recently heard about these workcation things and I’m already itching to take part in one myself. A free vacation somewhere sunny and awesome with your co-workers. Sign me up! Luckily for me, my husband is pretty great and he managed to squeeze in a little gluten free travelling for me during his trip. Through a little research before he left and his findings whilst he was down there he came across a variety of restaurants in Miami Beach which offer gluten free options. If you are headed to Miami, these could be some good places to try.
Naked Pizza is a Pizza chain with a location in Miami, Florida (1260 Washington Ave. Miami). They offer 12 inch gluten free pizzas. John spoke with staff at Naked Pizza and was extremely impressed that they were doing everything in their power to prevent the chance of cross contamination in gluten free orders. Gluten free pizzas are cooked on a specific gluten free tray in the oven, different utensils are used, gluten free toppings are kept separately from other toppings. Everything needed to make gluten free pizza is kept on a different shelf away from the other glutenous pizza. Gluten free pizza never touches the countertop – it’s always on a gluten free specific tray to keep customers safe. This sounds great to me! You can also watch a video on their site showing how they prepare their gluten free pizza. Fantastic!
Pizza Fusion is another pizza chain with a location in Miami Beach.( 1115 5th Street Miami Beach) They can make any of their pizzas gluten free (except sweet Italian sausage and meatballs) They also serve gluten free desserts – gelato and a home-made brownie. According to their website they take a lot of precautions to ensure gluten free pizzas are as safe as possible for gluten free customers. Gluten free foods are prepared with sanitized equipment, special utensils, and on separate surfaces.
