Love pizza, but hate gluten? Good news: Pizza Hut has joined the ranks of chain restaurants abstaining from the wheat protein.
The nationwide chain will start selling cheese and pepperoni pizzas on a gluten-free crust made from Udi’s brand gluten-free flour. They only come in a 10-inch size, cut into 6 pieces.
The cheese and pepperoni gluten-free pizzas meet the standards of the Gluten-Intolerance Group, a non-profit organization helping people who are gluten-intolerant “live full, healthy and productive lives,” according to their website.
These pizzas will be prepared in an area of the restaurant kitchen dedicated to gluten-free pizza. They start at $9.99, and have about 55 calories a slice. For more info on Pizza Hut’s nutrition, click here.
People who aren’t extremely sensitive to gluten can order the Udi’s crust with toppings beyond cheese and pepperoni, though the pizza won’t be certified gluten-free by GIG.
