Woodstone PizzaHaarlem, North Holland View On Map
Upon researching gluten-free food ahead of our move to Haarlem, I was extremely pleased to discover Woodstone Pizza, which sits a shortish walk from the train station. (Which itself is a 15 minute trip from Amsterdam) When we went there on Friday, the place was packed by 7:30pm, and we had to put our names on a list and find somewhere to have a drink for 20 minutes. But once we were seated service was efficient and friendly, although every new waiter and waitress got momentarily confused when we replied in English. We asked for the English menu and it was presented on a tablet.
They mark gluten-free options with a "G" next to the menu item, but there weren't too many gluten-free options except for the pizzas. The gluten-free pizzas are cooked in a separate oven to avoid cross-contamination. Their website suggested to give them some advance warning, but when we phoned up and tried to warn them they didn't seem that bothered about it. I had no problems ordering the base, and it didn't seem to take a long time, so I can only presume they stock plenty. They have a lot of weird and wonderful toppings, but I played it safe and went for the Americano: pepperoni, onion rings, peppers, mozzarella, garlic and jalepenos. The toppings were really fantastic - fresh, crunchy veg, juicy meat, tasty cheese, nicely flavoured by garlic and chilli. The base I would describe as fine. It was a little like a corn tortilla, and it didn't really try to have any dough-like properties, but when combined with the gorgeous toppings, you didn't really notice it that much. I would definitely come back here. All in all, it was a great dining experience. It seems incredibly popular with locals, which is always a good sign. The quality of the food and drink overall was great and the service was very friendly and efficient. All spoke English to a high standard. Definitely worth a day trip from Amsterdam.
