Seasons Pizza Review

With multiple locations in and around the Baltimore area, Seasons Pizza is a regional chain that has made an effort to welcome gluten-free customers back to the table to enjoy pizza once again.

Wanting to make the most of my final week in Maryland, I decided to trek over to Seasons Pizza in Towson to check it out before heading home. While normally I would have stayed in my dorm and taken advantage of their delivery service, I wanted to do an in-person visit to take advantage of the non-rainy day and ask questions about what preparation protocols they have in place.

Arriving shortly after noon, I entered Seasons expecting a sparse walk-up counter but was pleasantly surprised to see a decently sized dining area. After quickly looking over the menu for topping choices since the 10" gluten-free pizza is the only gluten-free option available, I selected both broccoli and mushrooms, which were both included in the base price for the pizza. As per my usual order, mine came sans cheese, but vegans and other dairy-free folks should note that they do not have a non-dairy cheese option. It should be noted that I did not inquire about other allergens in the crust so those with other considerations beyond gluten and dairy should remain vigilant.

After ordering, I inquired if extra steps could be taken to make sure my pizza remained gluten-free such as using a separate/clean pizza cutter. She made sure to let the kitchen know to take special care with my order and informed me they have measures in place such as a oven-to-table pan that ensures the pizza does not come in contact with glutenous surfaces. That being said, the kitchen does handle gluten containing items, so ultimately, the responsibility rests with the diner to determine their comfort level. 



From the moment it arrived, I could tell that the pizza was not going to be one of the better ones I'd have. The crust was rice-based and was flimsy, thin, and had the stereotypical gluten-free cardboard taste. The sauce was actually pretty decent and had a nice tomato flavor and thick texture. The mushrooms and broccoli were also nothing spectacular, but they were seemingly relatively fresh. 

While I was not too thrilled about the pizza, I must give credit to my waitress who was proactive and knowledgeable and to Seasons themselves for offering an affordable gluten-free pizza at $10.99 including two toppings. It's nice to know they deliver and are an option when travelling around the region.
