Creo' Restaurant

After the ceremony for admission to the bar my parents and I checked out Creo' Restaurant in Stuyvesant Plaza.  We were originally debating between Creo' and a chain restaurant and opted to go to Creo' to try out something unique in Albany while we were there.

The restaurant is very gluten free friendly, with a menu that marks which items can and cannot be prepared gluten free (although such marking does not exist on the restaurant's website).  After surveying my options, I decided to go with the butternut squash and cauliflower pizza with a side of brussel sprouts.  The pizza came stacked with ricotta, fresh mozzarella, arugula and walnuts and was definitely a sight to behold.

The pizza's crust is not made at Creo' and therefore tastes similar to many other gluten free pizza crusts I've had in the past: on the thinner side and not particularly flavorful but a good base on which to build with excellent flavors.  Unfortunately I didn't enjoy the flavors of the Butternut Squash pizza, but I attribute that to my own preferences than any fault of Creo'.  In fact, the brussel sprouts were fantastic - a testament to the culinary skills of the chefs at Creo'.

If I were in Albany again I would definitely check out Creo' and go with a different pizza option.

Do you love it or do you love it?
