Prezzo launches gluten-free pizza

Restaurant group Prezzo is now serving gluten-free pizzas in all of its restaurants across the UK.

Customers can now choose a gluten-free pizza from its complete range of 13 classic stone-baked pizzas.

Prezzo chief executive Jonathan Kaye (pictured) said: "We are delighted to be serving gluten-free pizzas. Perhaps as many as nine million people in the UK are gluten-sensitive.

"I am confident that many of our customers will welcome the opportunity to enjoy one of our new gluten-free pizzas in our restaurants or as a take-away.

"We undertook a lot of research in order to source what we believe is an excellent-tasting pizza base and to develop the perfect gluten-free pizza."

Sarah Sleet, chief executive of Coeliac UK, the national charity for people with coeliac disease, said: "We know that eating out safely is a top concern for people with coeliac disease, who must follow a strict gluten-free diet for life.

"We are working with the catering industry to help them deliver good-quality menu choices for people with coeliac disease and are delighted that Prezzo is recognising the importance of catering for this market."
