Many pizza restaurants are jumping on the gluten-free bandwagon, offering “gluten-free” crusts. As businesses they are trying to capitalize on the gluten-free trend by many non-Celiacs.
For Celiacs, we’d like to offer some advice: read the fine print. Know what you are getting. Don’t assume that so called “gluten-free” pizza is in fact free of gluten.
Many pizza restaurants can’t guarantee gluten-free due to cross contamination. Others characterize their gluten-free pizza as a “low-gluten option”.
Thanks to Moyra Baxter who sent us this disclaimer from Canadian 2 for 1 Pizza. We tip our hats to responsible restaurants like Canadian 2 for 1 who warn Celiacs of cross contamination issues.
