Pizza Hut’s Big Gluten Free News

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?

  1. I’ll give it a try. I am not sure whether cross contamination will hurt me or not, and they apparently don’t expect that to happen with a plan to take precautions. I think if they make the effort, I want to reward them for it. I’ll be there. Thanks for the heads up. Blessings to you…

  2. Great news! Thanks for sharing. They certainly are taking all the right precautions to guard against cross-contamination…..I worry a bit about airborne gluten particles inside the shared oven. But Kate is very very tempted to give it a try. How about you?

  3. Nope. I will NOT eat it. I respect Udi’s but I am NOT confident the people working at Pizza Hut wiil change their gloves when touching regular pizza and GF pizza. Even if they have a ‘designated’ GF oven – I can’t support it. Are they using designated pizza pans when it comes hot out of the oven? What about the kitchen and other contaminates around?I worked many years in customer service and I don’t believe minimum wage workers who don’t make enough $ will care about cross contamination.


  4. The shared oven doesn’t make me feel confident that there won’t be any cross contamination. I’m way to sensitive to risk it. But I’m glad the option will be available for those that are less sensitive. Good Luck!
