I had the opportunity to try Flippin Pizza last night. I've been meaning to, since our friends that live nearby rave about it. They passed out samples of their new gluten free pizza, so I tried one. It was pretty good. I also tried a slice of regular cheese pizza and I couldn't taste the difference. It's nice that there is a choice.
I can see why families like this place because they serve decent wine (for a pizza joint) and micro brew beers too. So everyone in the family is happy.
I did place an order of the bread knots for my 3 year old daughter, but didn't realize that they have dried hot peppers on them. Just an FYI.
LOVE their knots! They have a very unique (but yummy) pizza sauce. The sauce makes or breaks the pizza, to me. The pizza is great and I love how they give out dough to the kids... AND put on a little show when they flip the dough. Great to have a place that offers pizza by the slice and now they have $1 Pinwheels (a new menu item) on Tuesday afternoons. Fun place!
We went to a couple tweetups at Flippin' Pizza in the greater San Diego area and were pleased with the service and food quality. Having eaten gluten free cookies, pancakes and cereal in the past, I was somewhat skeptical of how their pizza would turn out.
I was shocked that it tastes as good as an non gluten free pizza. The staff was friendly and worked efficiently even with a large crowd. There was very little time between ordering and eating which is a plus if you have children with you.
I'd recommend this restaurant highly for families since you can ask for some extra dough for the kids to play with at the table. It's better than play dough and the kids will love it. If you can talk to workers into throwing the pizza dough in the air, it's a show not to be missed.
I have been searching the North County for pizza similar to what I was used to before I moved here from NJ eight years ago. Finally found it at Flippin Pizza! Still not what we call "tomato pie" back east, but a close second.
