Stella Barra is a popular Italian/Pizza restaurant with locations in Bethesda, Hollywood, Santa Monica, and Chicago. Pizza restaurants aren’t the best for us in the NOBREAD crowd. I’ll speak for myself, but there is nothing worse than dining at a pizza restaurant and being unable to indulge. Thankfully this is not the case at Stella Barra. Gluten-free pizza dough is available so you, too, can enjoy the cheesy goodness!…
All of the red sauce pizzas can be made gluten-free by simply asking for the GF pizza crust. My favorite is the Rossa Pizza that includes arugula, roasted garlic, calabrian chilies, charred cherry tomatoes, and sweet basil. The same goes for the white pizzas, and the Bloomsdale Spinach & Kale is an absolute must-order! Other NOBREAD approved items that are popular at Stella Barra include the Italian Chopped and Emerald Kale Salad, and I also recommend ordering a side of their gluten-free bread. These salads are gluten-free, and the perfect, healthy options to supplement your not as healthy meal!
For brunch, the Stella Barra in Chicago serves a buffet style menu. While gluten-free options may seem a bit limited, there are definitely items you are able to indulge in! The soft-scrambled eggs and candied bacon have our mouths watering…and I think I need to get to Chicago to give it a try!
