Most snack-type foods are or can easily be made gluten free (think corn tortilla chips, traditional hummus and salsas, guacamole, veggie trays, fruit and popcorn), but why not think beyond the ordinary and try some new products, recipes and flavors?
Share these new gluten free party recipes and foods with your friends, and you just might win them over to your team! Gluten-free food can and should be as good (if not better!) than “regular” foods, so make everything GF and everyone can eat it.
Take pizza, for example, homemade gluten free pizza is easy to make and tastes amazing when you use my award-winning gfJules pizza Mix or from-scratch recipe.
Grill it or bake it, make it thick or thin crust, and top it with whatever your crowd likes and everyone’s happy! Or turn the dough into gluten free calzones, gluten free pizza rolls or even gluten free baguettes to go with your favorite dips.
The same mix makes incredible gluten free baguettes for oil & vinegar dipping or for making the best hoagies ever.
So get your game face on and pick from this menu of ideas to suit your tastes. I’ve given you recipes, links and some of my favorite new and old gluten-free brands to get you started. From fancy to fast … it’s all here, folks.
Bring on the party!

Gluten Free Libations
Don’t feel left out at the party if you’re wanting a beer with the boys. Review my Gluten Free Beer Tasting Notes and find a gluten-free beer that suits your tastes.
If you’re wondering the difference between NATURALLY gluten free and gluten-reduced/gluten-removed beers, check out my post ALLLLLL about it!
Also be sure to check out my comprehensive review of ALL kinds of gluten free libations, including naturally gluten free beers, wine, seltzers, ciders and sake.
*In some cases, manufacturers have provided me with samples of products to review; in others, I discovered the products at Natural Products Expos or purchased the products for myself. As always, my opinions and reviews are my own, and I have not been compensated to represent or review any other brand.
It may not be Christmas yet, but I’m already thinking ahead to New Year’s parties. You have so many great ideas here. Those quesadillas will be on the menu.
So glad you’re thinking ahead, Leslie! And yes! Those quesadillas are a favorite and they’re SO easy!!!

Thanks Brianna! Every time I go over this list of recipes, it makes me want to throw a party!
Looks like something here for everyone! What a great collection of snacks.
So many good GF products are ruined with a teaspoon of corn product for those with corn allergy also.
