      It is not so bad once you get the hang of it - i am 5 years - the first 2 seemed dificult, but a few simple key things make life easier. Make bread crumbs (take udis or another bread - toast it - crumble it - spice it like italian flavored breadcrumbs). You can then have meatballs, meatloaf, breaded fish or cutlets - and it does not feel depriving.

    I have not found decent GF pizza in any of the NYC restaurants that offer it. Now when i want pizza I get a udi's frozen Margherita Pizza for almost one third the price of the restaurant ones and much, much better and consistent. What's your experience?

      pala pizza is costly, but very good. If you have not tried - it may be worth it. If you find the great place - please share :o)

    I love PIE near Union Square - their pizza is delicious! Also, Risoterria is great, too - off Bleeker & Morton in the W Village - mostly thin crust, but their Sicilian pizzas are similar to deep dish, or non-GF pizza. Best of luck!
