gluten-free at Martino’s Pizzeria, Lafayette, CO

We went to Martino’s for gluten-free pizza today. Despite Zoe’s decision to wear short sleeves, it was a very cold, kind of overcast day. Not exactly typical for the area, but a nice change. (Yesterday it was so warm and sunny that I didn’t even need a coat on my walk.) We don’t get television at home, so a cozy pizzeria with the football game on a big flatscreen TV was also a nice change :-) Zoe and Ashley played happily with the wooden pizza set, while they prepared our…
…gluten-free pizzas with Daiya (dairy-free) cheese. Mmm…
I’ve mentioned Martino’s before, but it’s worth saying again: They have awesome pizza. The crust is made by Sweet Escape and it’s excellent. Plus the sauce is great, and toppings they offer make for the perfect pizza.
What I didn’t realize until after I ordered is that they also carry Sweet Escape bread for sandwiches. Whaaaat? I already had my heart set on a pizza anyway, but now that I know about the gluten-free sandwiches, I can’t wait to go in for one of those! (Even with the fabulous gluten-free bread, the sandwiches are only $8.00!)
Finally, the gluten-free cookie that they warmed in the oven was the icing on the cake. And it’s gluten, dairy and nut free. Hello. This place is very allergy-friendly. You’ve gotta go.

    That looks like a great place to have pizza! Your kids are so cute :)
    It seems to me like Colorado has more healthy eating options than most other states? Do you think Colorado is a nice state to go on a holiday and travel around a little?

    I think of this area as the gluten-free mecca :-) It’s a great place for a vacation, especially gluten-free! Some day I’m going to open a bed and breakfast here :-)

    You’ve got to be kidding me! I had no idea. I’ve seen gluten free but not gluten AND dairy/casein free! Awesome. My husband is a huge pizza fan and since we’re avoiding gluten/casein/soy, etc for our daughter, we just don’t get pizza, though a few times I’ve made gf/cf.

    We’ll definitely have to go check it out. My sister and her BF life in Lafayette so we should take them…

    Thanks for the tip!

    Great little photo series! Your kids are darling. But, I must admit, I scrolled right back down to that chocolate cake of yours. It absolutely looks perfect. Moist and yummy. Just made Ali’s chocolate pie yesterday and now I want to make this cake of yours. This will be next on my “treat” agenda. Wow, I’m so impressed with how that cake looks so picture-perfect!

    P.S. And yes, you’d be perfect as a GF B & B hostess. I might even travel the 10 miles or so to stay at your place in Lafayette. =)

    This is so great to know! We moved from Lafayette, CO to Madison, WI last year, but go back for visits frequently. I will definitey hit up Martino’s next time we go!

    So nice that you have a pizza place that is allergy sensitive. We have none around, but I’ve found a rice pizza crust and used the Daiya mozzarella cheese on top. My son is allergic to tomato too, so pizza is a challenge, but I used pesto. Loving your blog as I’m new to cooking for a highly allergic child. Thank you!

    since I’m new to your blog I was super excited for 1/2 a second there by the title of your post. You see, I live just a few miles from Lafayette. Lafayette CA… waaaaa! 😀 No Martino’s Pizzeria for me
