News & Notes: August 3, 2012

The Montesini Pizza location in Marlton (221-A Greentree Rd., 856-988-8899) has gluten-free pizza. The pies are baked in a separate oven and all ingredients are pulled "from the back" to avoid cross-contamination.

Giuseppe's Pizza, now in a larger building at the corner of Street Road (I've always wondered about that name) and Delmont Avenue in Warminster (1380 W. Street Rd., 215-674-5550), also has gluten-free pizza. (Thanks Mom!)

A hat tip to reader Heather S., who let me know that Veekoo Asian Cuisine in Royersford (333 10th Ave., 610-948-5433) keeps gluten-free soy sauce on hand for noodle dishes and sushi.

Gluten-free gnocchi lasagna is on the summer menu at The Quick Fixx on South Street (1511 South St., 267-273-1066). Thanks to Kristin D. for the news.

La Campagne, the GREAT Kitchens-trained French BYOB on Kresson Road in Cherry Hill, has closed.

Also shuttered is the last area Bensi location in Sicklerville. The regional Italian chain, which served gluten-free pasta, previously closed spots in North Wales and Wyomissing, Pennsylvania and Hamilton, New Jersey.

Although not in the Delaware Valley, Harrisburg is close enough that the opening of a new gluten-free bakery in that area warrants a mention. Betsy's Bakery in nearby Camp Hill (115 St. John's Church Rd., 717-730-9900) will open one week from tomorrow, with cookies, brownies, cupcakes, pies and other sweets (some vegan) on the menu.

Glutino has introduced a new line of snack crackers, starting with Sea Salt and Rosemary & Olive Oil flavors. The crackers are made with rice flour. You can print a Glutino product coupon from the company's website.

I'm pretty sure it wasn't Congress who declared yesterday IPA Day, but perhaps you celebrated with a gluten-free beer. As I wrote on Tuesday, the newest gluten-free brew is an American-style India Pale Ale from Steadfast Beer Co.

A reader was kind enough to nominate Gluten Free Philly in the "Best Local Blogger" on PHL17's Philly Hot List. Please show your support by voting for the blog at this link. Voting is open until Friday, September 7.

Don't forget that gluten-free pizza will be available at Phillies games beginning tonight at the Seasons Pizza stand in Ashburn Alley.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I didn't realize Citizens Bank Park had gluten free pizza until a friend said they saw it on the board at Sesons in Ashburn Alley. I tried it yesterday while at the game and it was actually much tastier than I expected.
