My mom, the kids and I decided we would go to the mall for back to school shopping. After running from this store to that store everyone was hungry. AND everyone knows that shopping makes you ravenous, LOL. Ok, not really, but since it was past noon we were definitely ready for lunch. We left the mall and headed to Giorgio’s Italian Food & Pizzeria in Milpitas.
It is a casual Italian joint wherethey serve pizza, pasta & other Italian comfort foods. And best yet, gluten free items as well!! Since their gluten free pizzas are only 10″ pies, we ordered two. One was a Pesto with Ricotta Cheese and the other topped with Italian Sausage, Pepperoni and Mushrooms.
And of course we had to get a side of gluten free Rotelli Pasta with Alfredo sauce. The 5 of us devoured almost both pizzas except for a couple of slices and pretty much half the pasta was gone. We had the leftovers boxed up to take home for later enjoyment. The pizza crust was so good we had to ask the waiter for the brand name. He informed us it was from the Venice Bakery. Mental note — will need to order some pizza crusts from there!
I love Alfredo Sauce — it is one of my food pleasures. The Alfredo sauce at Giorgio’s was one of the best I have tasted in a long time. It was flavorful, creamy and garlicky! A nice surprise.
