If you follow any gluten free blogs or Facebook pages, then you probably saw this morning’s news that Pizza Hut will begin selling gluten free pizza on January 26 in 2,400 of their 6,300 restaurants nationwide. Perhaps the biggest news for those of us with celiac disease is that Pizza Hut will be the first major pizza chain to sell certified gluten free pizza. Pizza Hut has partnered with Udi’s Gluten Free Foods and the Gluten Intolerance Group that verifies safe gluten free food. The pizzas will all be 10 inches with 6 slices and sell for $9.99.
The article goes on to talk about the extra precautions that they will take for each gluten free pizza. You guys know that I’m a big pizza lover, and Pizza Hut was one of my favorites growing up. I have written about my love for several pizza chains who offer gluten free options including Mellow Mushroom, California Pizza Kitchen, and Fuel. My question to you is this: will you try Pizza Hut’s new gluten free pizza or will you be too afraid of cross contamination?
