Venice Bakery for Gluten-Free Pizza
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
Several years ago, our President Jimmy DeSisto was asked by Dr. Karima Hirani, a holistic medicine practitioner from The University of Southern California, to create a good-tasting gluten-free pizza for her students and patients. Dr. Hirani explained that through gluten free diet the behavioral patterns of her autistic children were improving. This was all the inspiration that Mr. DeSisto needed to create the perfect gluten free pizza crust. Having been at the helm of family owned company for the past 16 years, he started to research the Gluten Free market, intent on producing a product that met the standards of our company.
After collaborating with the team of skilled bakers, he used their craft and applied our dedication to artisan baking techniques and ultimately created the secret recipe for Venice.
After Mr. DeSisto presented our gluten-free pizza to Dr. Hirani and saw her reaction upon her first bite, we were convinced that we had successfully combined the perfect ingredients for what is now becoming the fastest growing segment of our business.
Venice is committed to providing our customers with a quality product. As a result, and realizing that food choices go beyond taste and can impact a person’s health, our gluten free pizza crusts are also vegan, free of diary, egg and soy. You can trust Venice Baking Company to use the highest quality gluten-free ingredients, so your family can enjoy the best tasting gluten-free pizza available.
