The biggest meals of the year are served up on Thanksgiving and Christmas––and those with food allergies often miss out when it comes to digging in. But thanks to San Diego’s bountiful array of bakeries specializing in gluten-free goodies from pumpkin scones, stuffing, rolls and breads to apple pie, gingerbread cookies and eggnog poundcake, pleasing gluten-free diners will be easy as pie! Scroll through our slideshow to see where to score delectable, all-inclusive delights this holiday season.

Pavona Dolci Bakery

Have your cake and eat it too by ordering from Pavona Dolci Bakery. Their beautiful almond and pistachio bundt cakes drizzled in delicious icing (available in mini and full sizes) are the bread and butter of this local gem. This holiday season owner and baker Christina Sanini will offer cakes in Almond Chai with Cardamom Glaze, Pavona Cashew with Maple Sea Salt and Pavona Almond Dark Chocolate with Peppermint as well as Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes and Multigrain Loaf Bread. Though Pavona Dolci has no storefront, you'll find a variety of these flavors at each of the several cafes in mid city that regularly carry her luscious treats. Order at least 48 hours ahead and Christina will have it delivered to the cafe nearest you. Check the website to find a location.
