Gluten Free Pizza at GB Pizza, Exmouth Market

The London branch of Margate pizza restaurant GB Pizza makes gluten-free pizza bases – and they’re a damn lot better than the usual carboard catastrophes. The Telegraph’s Zoe Williams called them “outrageously edible”. Hurrah! Made off-site by gluten-free chef Annie, they handle cross-contamination with care, but do warn that they are a “wheaty” environment. Toppings feature top-notch ingredients in simple combinations: charcuterie from Brixton’s Cannon & Cannon, British mozzarella and Kentish vegetables. It all rounds off with flavour-packed gelato from Soho’s Gelupo. We all scream for ice cream, as they say.   GB Pizza, 50 Exmouth Market, EC1R 4QE

Gluten Free Salads at Gail’s Bakery, Clerkenwell

Gail’s Artisan Bakery sells award-winning bread, breakfast, cakes and pastries – but it’s not all about the wheat at Gail’s, the bakery also serves some exceptional gluten-free salads, ideal for lunch on the go. We tried the kiln-roasted trout with celeriac and fennel remoulade (£5.50), which is completely wheat and gluten free, however does contain fish, egg, milk and mustard. The salad tasted fantastic, a far cry from your normal takeaway salads, and was topped with a very generous portion of trout – delicious! Gail’s Bakery also does an exceptional flour free chocolate cake, perfect if you’re after something sweet to end your meal with. You can eat in at Gail’s Bakery, or you can buy items to take away – they also do great teas and coffees. Gluten Free: Gluten free options include salads and a flour free chocolate cake, but check with your waiter when you visit to see if there are any gluten free specials on offer.

Meathead, Exmouth Market

Street food stall Meathead serves up stews, cuts and burgers at Exmouth Market, Clerkenwell during the week, but they also do a damn fine veggie stew – perfect for those healthier gluten free days! We tried the vegetable stew served with rice and heaps of fresh salad, the huge portion is priced at £4.50. And here it is, in all its colourful beauty! The stew contains fresh tomatoes, butternut squash, courgette and lots more – we’re guessing these change according to the season. If you’re after something speedy and you’re in the area, Meathead is a great choice for gluten free food on the go, give ‘em a try, we say!
