This Gluten Free Birthday Party Menu is brought to you by Freschetta. Thank you for supporting the companies that encourage my creativity.
Need a little birthday party inspiration? Check out these fun ideas I’m sharing today from my son’s gluten-free birthday party menu.
When I asked my son what he wanted to serve at his party, big surprise, he said he wanted pizza. Luckily, knowing how easy it is to serve a gluten-free option with Freschetta’s cheesy thin crust pizzas, this party is completely worry-free.
As you saw in the video, we had everything from pizza to fruit and veggies and a few treats in between.
Because… what would a birthday party be without treats? But also, everything served is naturally gluten-free and Freschetta’s cheesy, crispy crust pizza is one that is loved by everyone.
My son also has a friend that eats gluten-free, so it’s important to me to make food that everyone can enjoy. The reality is that kids that eat gluten-free are already having to opt out from a lot of the food options served in social occasions, so I didn’t want my son and his friend to feel left out.
The ideas you see in this post are also nut-free because of all food allergies a big deal and since another friend of his has a nut allergy, I wanted to accommodate him as well.
However, by looking at the party spread it definitely looks like regular party food boys will love.
Of course, there will be a couple of us (my husband and I) making sure the boys don’t get out of control. Well, you know, 10-year-olds can’t stop telling bathroom jokes because apparently, they are hilarious.
And as you saw, I decided to transform a plain cheese pizza into an adult, gourmet-inspired pizza by topping it with fresh arugula, goat cheese, Kalamata olives, plus a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
Wait.a.minute. Did you know you can easily transform a plain gluten-free cheese pizza into the type you wish your favorite pizzeria served? Oh.yes.you.can! Check out my 3 ways to jazz up a cheese pizza post. You are not going to believe it!
Let me tell you, gluten-free pizza is just the tip of the iceberg. When I throw a party, I go all out. That’s not to say that I’ll be spending the entire day in the kitchen. These recipes are all quick, easy, and can be made ahead of time! Links to recipes for each of these additional snacks and treats will be available below and on the blog.
I also made grape kabobs, chocolate drizzled pretzels, apple slices with chocolate no-nut butter dip, and this gelatin fish tank! Each recipe is so simple, yet I know that the kids are going to love everything.
Voila! You have yourself quite the party spread. Gorgeous, tasty, and most importantly, gluten-free! I hope you find this post to be helpful for your next birthday party!
