New pizza crusts bring wheat-free consumers back to operations offering pizza
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – French Meadow Bakery™ (www.frenchmeadow.com) in partnership with Rich Products Corporation announces the introduction of a new Par-Baked Gluten-Free Pizza Crust now available for foodservice. According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse, an estimated 1 in 133 people in the U.S. suffer from Celiac Disease or gluten intolerance. The nationwide need for a gluten-free diet inspired French Meadow Bakery™ to offer this new pizza crust, which is certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), a program of The Gluten Intolerance Group of North America.
In recent consumer tests, the French Meadow Bakery Par-Baked Gluten-Free Pizza Crust was preferred over other gluten-free pizza crusts. Its light and airy texture is unlike other gluten-free crusts. With a golden crust and an authentic pizzeria quality, this versatile crust allows for sweet or savory toppings.
The new par-baked gluten free 10.5” pizza crusts are packaged in aluminum tins to minimize the risk of cross-contamination. The convenient packaging is perfect for freezer-to-oven preparation and the crusts come 84% baked for a quick finish. In addition to their true pizza crust texture and taste, they are certified gluten-free, lactose-free and casein-free.
Rich Products Corporation is leading the way with their initiatives for this great tasting gluten-free pizza crust by taking innovative gluten-free products and making them available for foodservice. Along with the pizza crust, French Meadow Bakery has launched a gluten-free Italian Sandwich Roll and a variety of decadent gluten-free goodies: All Natural Gluten-Free Fudge Brownies, All Natural Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies, Gluten-Free Coconutty Macaroons and Gluten-Free Brownie Bites.
