Madwoman Foods

Andy has a pizza party on Wednesday for his last full day of school. The only gfcf pizza that he will eat is made by Madwoman Foods.

We had previously bought the pizzas at Fresh and Natural in Shoreview, but decided to go straight to the source today and visit their bakery in Minneapolis. When we got there we discovered that this was a smart decision since the gentleman that waited on us (who identified himself as the owner) informed us that they have stopped selling wholesale to the stores. The retailers were marking up the products so much and they didn't want to become known for such expensive products.

The bakery was very easy to find - it is located at 4747 Nicollet Avenue South in South Minneapolis. If you are not local, you can still enjoy their wonderful products by ordering off of their website. All of their products are gluten free. Most are also casein free and most are low on the glycemic index (GI).

After we got the frozen pizzas, we let Andy pick a snack from the bakery case and he had a real hard time deciding. All of their baked goods looked so scrumptious. Andy finally settled on a piece of lemon cake and I got myself a chocolate muffin with vanilla frosting. Andy's lemon cake was really, really, really good - I would never have known it was GFCF - it was moist and delcious. My cupcake was very good also - just not as outstanding as the cake.

Madwoman Foods gets three thumbs up from us!

We are so fortunate here in the Twin Cities to have three gluten free bakeries and since I have now been to all 3 - I can tell you that all 3 are outstanding.

Hi Kathi,

I just stumbled across your blog and wanted to say hi! I'm a casein free celiac formerly from Minneapolis...I go to the Wedge and get sandwiches and muffins every time in the city! While Portland is pretty gf progressive, I'm always impressed by the abundance of awareness and opportunities in Minneapolis...good thing my next trip is coming up soon!!
