    Pizza Hut and Coors Going Gluten-free in Time for Super Bowl Sunday

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac.com 01/23/2015 - This Superbowl Sunday gluten-free fans can celebrate with gluten-free Pizza Hut pizza, and, in a few lucky test markets, gluten-free Coors beer.

    Photo: CC--Army RecruitingYou read right. First, Pizza Hut has announced that, starting Jan. 26, it will be debuting a gluten-free pizza in about 2,400 locations in the U.S. The new pizza will be a 10-inch, six-slice pizza, which will go for $9.99. The pizza crust will be made by popular gluten-free brand Udi’s Foods, and certified gluten-free by the Gluten Intolerance Group.

    Pizza Hut’s gluten-free pie will be one of the restaurant’s lowest-calorie pizzas, with about 100 fewer calories per serving than their current “Skinny Slice” pizza. 

    Every Pizza Hut Gluten-Free Pizza will be baked fresh-to-order on parchment paper and delivered in a specially branded Udi’s Gluten-Free Pizza box. Also, all employees handling Pizza Hut’s Gluten-Free Pizza have been trained to wear gloves and use a designated gluten-free pizza cutter.

    If that’s not enough good news, beer-loving gluten-free football fans in Seattle and Portland will be able to chase their gluten-free Pizza Hut pizzas with Coors’ new gluten-free Peak Copper Lager, which will debut in those markets on Superbowl Sunday.

    Coors will gauge the response in its test markets as it looks to make Peak Copper Lager available in more U.S. markets.

    Gluten-free Pizza Hut pizza and gluten-free Coors beer on Superbowl Sunday? I’m going to call that a touchdown.

    Thanks Pizza Hut, can't wait to try it! However, Budweiser has a great gluten free beer - Redbridge! They just need to promote it better. It sure beats all the other gluten free beer want-a-be's including the cider beers, yuk! Try it!

    I am so super excited that Pizza Hut will start making a gluten free pizza. I hope it comes to my area Anderson, IN.

    Doubt it. The Fishers Pizza Hut doesn't have it. They didn't even know what I was talking about. I even mentioned the ad about the super bowl.

    Good News. Most gluten-free pizza is pretty bad...cardboard tastes better. Red Bridge beer is really good -- I drink it two or three times a week. I will give Coors a try when it gets to my area.

    Excellent article and will be good news for all those just wanting to jump on the gluten-free band wagon. For those of us who are truly allergic, the product will not be gluten-free, I have run into that several times with other pizza places, ie Domino's etc. all product to go on the pizzas are usually kept next to the counter where they are in a covered container, but once opened during the process of making a regular pizza, the contamination happens quite quickly. Once again, I'm not complaining, but it isn't good news for the folks who truly have to eat gluten-free.

    If Udi's is behind it, it will be safe. I have celiac and would not be afraid to try it. Domino's, on the other hand is not safe because of cross contamination, I would never eat it.

    Looking for gluten-free Pizza give Mellow Mushroom a try. In most placed the pizza in made in a separate location and is cooked in a dedicated oven. They also carry Daura Beer. It's about the best gluten-free beer I have had. Been gluten-free now for over ten years.

    I spoke with the manager and ordered the gluten-free pizza with pepperoni to ensure that it would absolutely stay gluten-free. I also said they will need to change gloves etc. still ended up with my family getting sick from cross-contamination for who knows what. I would not recommend at all.
