Dining-Out 101: Pat's Pizza

About a month ago, when driving by the Hampden branch of Pat's Pizza, I noticed a sign. It read, "New Menu Item: Gluten-Free Pizza Crust." Gluten-free pizza crust?! From a real (Well, somewhat real. I grew up on Greek pizza and don't especially care for thin crust pizza.) pizza place?! To say I was ecstatic feels like an understatement.
Finally, this weekend Sarah and I found time to drop into the Orono Pat's to sample their GF pizza. I ordered Canadian bacon and tomato and it was delicious. Pat's is known for their thin crust and, naturally, their GF crust was thin and crispy. It didn't have a lot of flavor, but the sauce, cheese and topping made up for that drawback. Overall, it was worth the wait and I'm looking forward to going back again.


  1. Update: The Hampden Pat's also has GF crust (and a completely different vibe! College hangout v. family restaurant), this time sampled with tomato and conventional bacon- yum! Heats up well for lunch the next day, too.

  2. Gluten free pizza is showing up in restaurants all over the place! Thanks for sharing the review.
