Uno Pizzeria & Grill Introduces Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Uno Pizzeria & Grill, well regarded for its gluten-free menu options, has entered into an exclusive partnership with Venice Bakery to introduce a gluten-free pizza crust that will have customers wondering if it’s the real deal!

“This new gluten-free crust is so good, most people can’t tell the difference from our regular crust,” says Louie Psallidas, Uno’s President and CEO. “Unlike many gluten-free pizza crusts, it has a raised edge and the bold, flavorful taste that Uno’s pizzas are known for.”

Los Angeles-based Venice Bakery is one of the largest family-owned, gluten-free pizza crust manufacturers in the United States.

Uno’s Executive Chef Andre Fuehr notes, “We’re very excited to serve Venice Bakery gluten-free crusts at all 130 Uno locations. Uno’s is known for incredible Deep Dish and Thin Crust pizzas.  The crust is so important to a great pizza.  We have tasted every gluten-free pizza crust on the market, but none compares in quality and taste to this outstanding product.”

Uno’s new gluten-free pizza crust is offered in three flavors: cheese, pepperoni and veggie.  Uno’s will add a grilled chicken, goat cheese and caramelized onion pizza to the gluten-free menu in February.  Each gluten-free pizza is specially prepared in a gluten-free environment, separate from the Chicago Deep Dish and Thin Crust pizza lines.  The new gluten-free pizzas will be available in a 10-inch size, starting at $11.99.

For an estimated 1 in 133 Americans, or about 1 percent of the population struggling with Celiac disease, enjoying a dining experience outside the home can be challenging.  UNO, however, makes it easy by offering over 20 gluten-free options on its menu ranging from beer to chili, a variety of salads as well as fish, poultry and beef entrees and sides.

Based in Boston, Massachusetts, Uno Restaurant Holdings Corporation includes 119 company-owned and franchised Uno Pizzeria & Grill restaurants located in 23 states, the District of Columbia, South Korea, the United Arab Emirates, Honduras and Saudi Arabia. For more information, visit www.unos.com.
