Pizza Hut wins best gluten-free pizza award

Pizza Hut's UK business has picked up an award for best gluten-free pizza at the Freefrom Food awards.

The awards were presented by celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson who commended the pizza's thin and crispy base, toppings and square shape that aims to differentiate it from non-gluten-free pizzas.

Chez Gawen, head of food at Pizza Hut, commented: "We are thrilled to be recognised with this prestigious award, as it really reflects our commitment to providing good-quality menu choices for a range of customer dietary requirements.

"As well as the using separate ingredients and utensils to make our gluten-free pizzas, we have a wide range of options in our unlimited salad offering that cater for gluten-free and dairy-free diets, so that our guests can always find something to their taste."

Pizza Hut became the first UK pizza chain to introduce gluten-free pizzas last October, and they are available through both the restaurant and delivery businesses.

The pizzas were developed in association with Coeliac UK, following extensive research into customer needs and ensuring that the product reached the No Gluten Containing Ingredients (NGCI) accreditation.

All toppings in Pizza Hut restaurants are also gluten-free and all team members undergo cross-contamination training and coeliac awareness training.
