Last night, Mal and I enjoyed dinner at Naked Pizza in Coolidge Corner followed by a baseball game at Fenway. (We scored grandstand tickets at face value off Craigslist! Wahoo!)

The folks at Naked invited me to try their delicious pizza pies, so a trip into the city was the perfect excuse to stop by and see what they were all about.

Naked Pizza uses simple, all-natural, whole food ingredients in their pizzas. The dough, sauce, and cheese contain no additives, preservatives, colorants or weird chemicals of any kind, and they even use a special prebiotic dough, which is made with more than 10 seeds and grains and fortified with probiotics. Interesting, right?

To make your pizza, you start by picking a crust””either original, skinny, or gluten-free””and then you select your ingredients or pick a combination from Naked’s favorites. The pizza is cooked to order and takes about 10 minutes.

Since I am a huge fan of jumping on diet bandwagons [insert sarcasm], I chose the gluten-free crust for my pizza. (In all seriousness, avoiding gluten has really helped my digestive issues.)

As for toppings, I went with the Smokehouse, which was hickory-smoked BBQ sauce, red onion, and chicken. It was so delicious! The toppings were fresh and flavorful and the crust was really amazing. I honestly wouldn’t have known it was gluten-free if I hadn’t ordered it myself!

Once we finished eating our pizza, Mal and I started to walk down Beacon Street to Fenway. We had about 45 minutes to kill before the game started, so we stopped by the Beacon Street Tavern for a drink.

I’ve been on a major Arnold Palmer kick lately, so as soon as I saw the Boston Palmer on the drink menu, I knew I needed to order it. In the mix: Absolute Wild Tea, basil simple syrup, lemon, and a splash of tea. Mmm! I loved it!

We arrived at Fenway right as the National Anthem was being sung, so we headed straight to our seats.

Mal and I had a great time watching the game. The Red Sox scored six runs in the first inning and there were a few homeruns, so it was a pretty exciting game. The Red Sox ended up killing the Orioles 10-3.

Off to tackle my long run! Wish me luck!

  1. Ooo so glad you did a review – I’ve been wanting to try Naked Pizza ever since I saw their location in Brighton about a month ago. Wonder what’s in a ‘skinny’ pizza dough? Sounds suspect. I always equate ‘skinny’ products with chemical-y additives but since its Naked, maybe there are fewer additives and fakesters in it.

  2. Mmm that place looks perfect for a pizza addict like me. The closest thing I’ve heard of in California is called “ZPizza,” which is pretty good.

    Glad you’re feeling better! I’ve heard Arnold Palmers have healing powers 😉 Okay, maybe not…

    Hey, a girl can dream right?

  3. I love Naked Pizza. The one in Brighton delivers to us in less than 30 minutes usually. I have never had the gluten free crust because it has dairy in it but the regular wheat crust is tasty 🙂

  4. Hey Tina-

    Just something to look out for–some BBQ sauces can contain gluten! Crazy, right–just one of those foods nobody would think of. I don’t know if you are COMPLETELY trying to get of gluten, but just something to consider if you noticed any ill-symptoms after eating it (and who knows, maybe a person would have to consume a lot to notice anything, I don’t know…)

  5. I’ve been wanting to try Naked Pizza for months now…I’m glad you approve! I’m in NY for the summer but as soon as I get back in town I’m going to have to check it out. 🙂

  6. I have been searching high and low for a restaurant that serves up a goooooood gluten free pizza, always had to make my own. that one loooooks so awesome. i need cheese/dough now.

    the uk really doesn’t cater for the gluten intolerant. sucks!

  7. I love gluten free pizza crust options now available in so many places!! Glad it’s really helping improve your digestion, gluten free works well for me too.

  8. What a fun evening!! I LOVE naked pizza!! My favorite is the sonoran with added cilantro. And I love that it’s all natural and good for you but it doesn’t taste that way! 🙂

  10. Naked pizza sounds great can’t wait to try it. My husband and I went gluten free over a year ago and we have never felt better. We actually starting doing the blood type diet which is very strict, but we really felt like our bodies were running very efficiently. Glad your feeling better. Thanks for your great info.
