Celiac.com 08/14/2017 - Pizza chain Papa John's is warning consumers that its new gluten-free pizza is not safe for people with celiac disease or serious gluten intolerance.
After announcing on Monday that it was introducing a gluten-free crust made with sorghum, teff, amaranth, and quinoa at locations across the US, the company warned that it does not recommend the crust for people with a serious gluten intolerance.
This gluten-free pizza dustup is similar to efforts by Dominos to debut a gluten-free crust, but not a gluten-free pizza.
Now, can major pizza makers actually produce a gluten-free pizza for those who need it? Yes.
Take Pizza Hut, for example, which has worked hard to offer a genuinely gluten-free pizza experience.
Pizza Hut strives to serve certifiably gluten-free pizzas by storing ingredients in designated gluten-free kits. Workers wear gloves to prepare the pizzas, bake the pizzas on parchment paper, and use a designated gluten-free pizza cutter.
Even so, Pizza Hut website says it cannot guarantee that the pizza is prepared in a 100% gluten free environment, and that customers should consult a medical advisor before ordering.
So, that's your slice of gluten-free pizza insight for now.
