New Gluten-Free Pizza By Pizza Hut Gives Patients With Celiac Disease An Alternate Flavor
A new gluten free pizza by Pizza Hut could mean numerous possibilities for patients suffering from celiac disease--an autoimmune disorder that can occur in patients who are genetically predisposed to the ingestion of gluten that may harm the small intestine. Statistics estimate that this health issue affects around 1 in 100 people worldwide.
As early as January 26, customers can order a Cheese-only or Pepperoni Pizza Hut Gluten-Free Pizza at select restaurants nationwide. The Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG), the pioneer non-profit organization in verifying gluten-free food, was instrumental in the in-store training process for Pizza Hut.
"We partnered with the most-respected names in the gluten-free community to develop a best-in-class pizza for those looking to limit gluten in their diet," said David Gibbs, global CEO, Pizza Hut. "Our Gluten-Free Pizza has all the flavor America has come to expect from a Pizza Hut pizza, which is why we are thrilled to add this great pizza to our lineup."
The Cheese-only and Pepperoni Gluten-Free Pizzas are about 10 inches and cut into six slices, starting at $9.99. For more nutritional information, visit their website, here.
