I want for to eat pizza!
The other day my doctor told me that Garlic Jim's serves gluten free pizza with a corn-based crust. And I was all excited that I could finally eat pizza! Yummy pizza, even! But alas, no. It was a lie. I called and the crust is rice-based. However, this allergic girl just may order one anyway, and let the narocolepsy take her down in a fit of pizza-induced ecstacy. One nap won't hurt.
UPDATE: I broke down right after I wrote this and ordered one (with the encouragement of the family...they're such enablers...lol.) I have to say it was AMAZING. Total ecstacy. It was greasy like a Pizza Hut pizza, and I didn't even mind the thin crust. I'm a thick crust kind of girl, but at this point, any real pizza is heaven. I'm happy to report that despite it's rice-based crust, I had no adverse reactions to it after I ate it. No nap, no weird feelings. Yay! I did wake up with some burning gut this morning, but I suspect it could just be cross-contamination. Rice never does that to me. I'm almost inspired to buy plain rice and see if it really is an option for me. Cross your fingers! :D
