Oct. 19, 2012 – Pizza 73 has introduced a gluten-free offering that features four new pizzas at its 72 locations in Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan.

Available in a 10-inch crust, the line of gluten-free pizzas are made using a rice-based flour as the main ingredient and were launched in response to the dietary needs and trends expressed by its customers. Customers can choose from four types of pizzas: cheese, pepperoni, hawaiian (ham and pineapple) and veggie (fresh mushrooms, green peppers, red onions and Roma tomatoes), priced at $9.99 or $10.99 each.

In making the gluten-free crust, Pizza 73 has implemented a series of procedures and controls to prevent product cross-contamination. In addition to having specific utensils for the product and preparation surfaces, the company has sent all store staff an updated training guide containing new product information, educational material about allergens, as well as cooking and sanitizing procedures to ensure maximum food safety.
