Being severely intolerant to wheat, I’ve had to come to terms with the fact that takeaway pizza is a luxury that’s denied to me. Until now. Thanks to a comment from a fellow Qyper, I was informed that Famous Moes on Southover Street do, in fact, offer gluten-free pizza bases.
I was so excited that it was all I could do to stop myself from ordering pizza there and then. In the end, I decided there was in fact nothing stopping me from doing just that and picked up the phone. I spoke to a very nice man who explained to me that there were a couple of limitations to this new found life of pizza takeaways – namely that they only come in the tiny size. Which is OK – definitely better than nothing. The upside is that they’re included in the buy-one-get-one-for-£2 deal. Awesome. So that’s two gluten-free pizzas for a tenner.
Oh my goodness, that tenner was SO worth it. I went for the ‘Smokey Moe’ and the ‘Beijing Duck’ – while the bases are clearly off-the-shelf frozen ones, nothing beats that amazing taste of takeaway pizza topping. The supermarket ones just don’t cut the mustard. I’ll definitely be ordering pizza from here again in the not-too-distant future – and hopefully they’ll get lots of gluten-free orders and branch out into doing larger, freshly made gluten-free bases.
