Barro's Pizza

Everyone I know in the Celiac world in Phoenix has been raving about Barro’s gluten free pizza so I decided to give it a try. My whole immediate family is gluten free; mom, dad, daughter and I, so taking my dad there for an early father’s day lunch worked out perfectly.

We visited the one in Ahwatukee on Chandler Blvd, which I think may have been one of the first they opened in Phoenix. A friend of mine worked there in high school when it was just a tiny take out place, and on her first day of work she set accidentally pushed the button that silently alerts the police in case of a robbery. They showed up with guns drawn and I don’t think I’ve let her live that down in the 15 or so years I’ve known her. I was surprised to see that they have expanded into a full restaurant with a bar – I guess it’s been a while since I was last there.

We ordered 2 gluten free pizza’s – one white pizza at my mom’s request and the second a cheese and salami as dad’s choice. With a couple of drinks it came out to about $25…comparable to other places that sell gluten free pizza, but they only offer small gluten free pizza crusts so you get a bit less for the price.

Overall I’d say their gluten free pizza is good, but not great. I think I preferred the white pizza since there was just something about the tomato sauce that I wasn’t a huge fan of. I think I was so impressed by Spinato’s amazing pizza sauce that this just couldn’t compare.

Barro’s is very clean, comfy and perfect for dining with kids. Not my favorite gluten free pizza joint in the valley, but certainly worth trying again sometime.
