Great Eats : La Gitana in Olympia, WA

 One of my favorite dinner destinations in my hometown of Olympia, Washington is La Gitana: a wonderful, Italian pizza place with delicious, decedent desserts!

My friend is a big fan of their hot tea selection. Typically, I never would imagine mixing pizza with tea, but hey, I guess for some it works!

The best vegetarian pizza (in my opinion) is their gluten-free arugula (just red sauce, mozzarella and arugula greens). Adding garlic for some extra taste is perfection.

I swear, their gluten-free crust is THE BEST gluten-free crust in town! It's filling and rich, and compliments the arugula and cheese wonderfully.

I'm an equally big fan of their affogato: a delicious cup of espresso with scoops of vanilla gelato. However, I don't necessarily recommend this dessert if you're having a late dinner (I was up for hours...). My friend approves of their flan, too.
