Over the weekend, we tried our first gluten friendly frozen pizza from Eat Local Pizza booth at the Market. GF is hard to get nice... most things basically taste like cardboard... so we were cautiously optimistic. We added some onion, chicken and extra cheese to the pepperoni base. It was definitely a huge hit for my gf boys and I’m so pleased to have something easy in the freezer for those nights when cooking isn’t an option. Highly recommend!
Edit: it is labelled as gluten friendly not gluten free due to being made in a facility with potential for cross contamination and I’ve updated the post to reflect that. It was safe for my son but may not be appropriate for everyone.

Label says “gluten friendly”. Meaning there can be gluten contamination however slight. May be good enough for some but may be a risk for others. Unless the entire facility is free of gluten contaminants, it would be impossible to guarantee complete gluten free compliance. But that being said, everyone with a gluten intolerance, sensitivity or allergy must make their own decision as to how much risk they r willing to take. Just heed the label warnings is all I’m saying. And of course don’t claim a product is gluten “free” if in fact it’s not labeled that way.
Is this gluten friendly or gluten free???

Vendor visit: Yesterday I got to visit Heather Boreal Bakery and see where her delicious bagels come to life! Heather has a small fully functioning and licensed kitchen in her basement where she makes each bagel by hand. Key steps: make the dough, let it rise, divide/weigh the dough, let it rise, roll the dough, let it rise, boil the bagels, dip them in topping like cheese or everything spices, and finally bake and bag. Then repeat for each different type of bagel dough!! This is a one-woman show and she’s rocking it.
Also, Heather has her main house kitchen approved and she keeps that fully gluten free, so no potential for cross- contamination. That’s where her gf cupcakes are made... and her many trials for the perfect gf bagel.
You can find Heather and her bagels twice each week at the Market and also at Maltese Grocery , George's Market and Celebrations and more. #eatlocal #montrealbagels #bagels #thunderbay #tbaymarket ... See MoreSee Less
Hand rolling bagel video that I couldn’t post above
The lower density of her bagels vs store bought makes them amazing. Keep up the good work. 😀

Heather is the best 😘🙌
