Happy birthday to me! Can you believe that I'm actually 21 now? I really can't because I feel like it's been a long time coming. I originally created this blog back when I was 15 years old so this is crazy to think I'm still here blogging as an official adult. (21 classifies as an official adult, right?

I know you probably love pizza too but when's the last time you tried one that actually tasted as good as the old stuff? I've been gluten-free for 6 years now and I'll let you know that I've probably tried every gluten-free pizza out there....
