“At Boston Pizza we strive to ensure there
is something delicious on our menu to accommodate different food sensitivities
or dietary preferences,” said Michael Gray, the company’s director of culinary
and executive chef , in a news release. “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.”

 

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,” said Anne Wraggett, president of the Canadian
Celiac Association, in the release. “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.”

 

The menu allows guests to tailor their meal
to their diet. For pasta, guests may 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 Oven-Roasted Wings, the Chopped
Chicken Salad and the Lemon-Baked Salmon Filet.

 

The company website states that GlutenWise
dishes are made with 100 per cent gluten-free ingredients but advises customers
that cross-contamination may occur during preparation.
