While vacationing in Arizona, my parents were on a mission to find me a great gluten free restaurant that I could blog about.  While we happened upon some (La Hacienda and True Food), they picked out Picazzo's specifically because the restaurant has an extensive gluten free menu.

To describe the restaurant's gluten free menu as extensive may actually be an understatement; Picazzo's offers things that I've never seen before on a GF menu, namely cheesy garlic bread.  I knew I had to give it a whirl and convinced my sister to indulger alongside me.  The baked wings and meat balls are gluten free and most pizzas can be made gluten free.  Amazing!

Sadly, the bread was just okay.  It was basically just bread with cheese on it; I could have gone for a stronger garlic flavor and perhaps some tomato sauce on the side.  We ended up slitting one slice and that was about it.

The pizza, on the other hand, was amazing.   I went for the Pesto and Artichoke pizza, served with organic pesto, sun dried tomatoes, mozzarella, artichoke hearts, roasted garlic, pine nuts, and goat cheese.  It was absolutely incredible!  I would definitely go back to Picazzo's if I am in the Phoenix area again.

Do you love it or do you love it?
