TAMPA, FL (WFLA) – While some think it’s bogus, others swear by a gluten-free diet. The diet is getting more attention after Wimbledon Gentleman’s single winner Novak Djokovic explained how the diet took his tennis game to a new level.

“This is the most inventive pizza place in town. That’s not to say that Gourmet Pizza is supremely expensive, you need reservations, or there is a dress code to adhere to, only that the pizza you get is both interesting and superior. There is an emphasis on making eclectic pies that are fresh, made from local ingredients and health conscious. Specialties include a cajun crawfish pizza, a southwestern pizza, and quite a few vegan selections.”
We recently catered an event in South Tampa. This residence had a coal brick oven in their back yard where they were hosting the party, so they hired us to make pizzas for their party using their own oven, and it was awesome!

As part of the regular menu, they offer eight specialty meatless and vegan (plant-based ingredients, using no animal products) pies. They even have vegan pizza breadsticks, and a variety of vegan cookies for the sweet tooth.

We like to promote and work with other businesses in the area who are providing healthy foods. We carry gluten free pizza crusts made by Viitals.
From the article in the Tampa Tribune:
“And business has been growing rapidly for Viitals in its 10-month existence. In September, Viitals won Baking Management Magazine’s product innovation award for its packaged snacks. At the same time, it supplied pizza crust to Hyde Park’s Gourmet Pizza Company and goodies to Cafe Hey in downtown Tampa and Kaleisia Tea near Temple Terrace.”
In February of 2006, Gourmet Pizza Company was featured in Southwest Airlines Spirit Magazine.
Gourmet Pizza Company has been a fixture in south Tampa for awhile, catering to the posh SoHo crowd in search of an elevated pizza experience – more than just sauce, cheese and pepperoni slapped on a disc of pizza dough (but they have that too, if that’s what you’re after).
