Pizzanisima, excelent gluten-free italian food

Pizzanisima restaurantWe really like this place. Since we found it  we have been there several times and have been always satisfied about the food and the service. Pizzanisima is located in Boadilla del Monte (suburb of Madrid). It’s a nice little place with a terrace when there’s good weather. They offer different kinds of gluten-free pasta dishes: penne, spaghetti, ravioli, etc., that you can combine with almost  any available sauce.

We talked with the owner who commented that he just made a “bet” on the celiac community

So far I have tried meat  ravioli with pomodoro sauce, and salmon ravioli. (yes, I like ravioli :-). There are many kinds of gluten-free pizzas. They are large and topped with a lot of stuff, may be too much.

For dessert I would recomend Panna Cotta with Nutella…uhmmm, yummy and as you can see in the picture they also take good care of the dish presentation.

In their web you can take a look to the menu. You can also order to go, just call in advance.

Genius gluten-free products arrive in Spain

Genius, the Scottish brand of gluten-free products has landed in Spain. Some of their products can be found at Carrefour hypermarkets in the frozen food section: white or brown sliced bread and some pizzas.

I have already bought both kind of breads but only tasted the white one. I put them in the freezer. Every day I take a couple of slices, put them in the toaster for a little while and they are delicious. I think this is the bread I like the most among all the gluten-free breads I have tasted so far (well let’s say it’s a tie with Schär’s rustic bread). It costs 3,50 EUR a bag that contains 15 slices, so for me it lasts one week.

The only bad thing is that the white bread bag has some printed green flowers that make it look like the bread is moldy ;-)

Genius also have 3 types of frozen pizza:
– Tomato and mozzarella cheese (2,95 Eur)
– Chicken and red pepper (3,90 Eur)
– Pepperoni (3,90 Eur)

I haven’t tried them yet but I will very soon.

Thanks Genius for making a gluten-free bread that tastes like regular bread :-)

¿Have you tried Genius products? ¿What’s your favorite gluten-free bread? ¿and your favorite pizza?
