MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 29, 2014 –Catering to the needs of gluten-sensitive guests, Boston Pizza announced today that it is now offering its GlutenWise menu online for takeout and delivery. Demand for the GlutenWise menu in restaurants has been high since launching last year and now just in time for Celiac Awareness Month, guests can also enjoy their favourite items at home.
“At Boston Pizza we strive to ensure there is something delicious on our menu to accommodate different food sensitivities or dietary preferences,” says Michael Gray, Director of Culinary and Executive Chef at Boston Pizza. “We are proud to offer GlutenWise options such as pizza and pasta, dishes that are traditionally off limits to gluten intolerant guests. GlutenWise is now available for our guests to enjoy in the comfort of their own home.”
To help drive awareness of Boston Pizza’s move to offer their GlutenWise menu online, guests can visit Boston Pizza in store or online and receive $2 off the purchase of a GlutenWise Pizza or GlutenWise Create Your Own Pasta until June 30.
“Roughly two million Canadians suffer from celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. There is no cure; the only treatment is a lifelong gluten-free diet,” says Anne Wraggett, President, Canadian Celiac Association. “Everyone has the right to safe food, and we are excited that Boston Pizza is taking steps to provide for the gluten-free community. Having safe gluten-free choices when dining out enhances our quality of life.”
Boston Pizza’s GlutenWise menu includes GlutenWise fusilli and pizza crust, allowing guests to tailor their meal to their diet. For pasta, guests are able to choose the type of sauce, meat or cheese and for pizza, guests can start with a choice of cheese and then select from a variety of toppings. Other items include: Boston Pizza’s Famous Oven-Roasted Wings, the Chopped Chicken Salad or the Lemon-Baked Salmon Filet.
