I went to a pizza party the other day in celebration of the Seahawks having their first football game of the season.  Everyone ordered pizza from a local pizza place.  At first, I thought for sure I wouldn’t be able to participate, but then someone said they had also ordered some gluten-free pizzas.   Now, this…
