Let's say it's game day . . . The BIG game day. Everyone is ordering pizza and it looks and smells divine. But pizza contains gluten and you recently discovered you are (a) allergic to (b) intolerant of or (c) choosing to eliminate gluten for health reasons. You didn't eat before you left because you assumed there would be other options, but now you're left with two choices . . . Skip eating or eat pizza and suffer the consequences (whatever that may be for you).
If you think this is an unlikely situation, I'm telling you you're wrong. This is extremely common for individuals following a gluten free diet and it's uncomfortable for everyone. Gluten free individuals also like to indulge in a lazy cheat meal now and then and ordering a delivery pizza is a simple pleasure we normally miss out on.
Until TODAY . . .
Pizza Hut is changing the game, quite literally. By partnering with industry leaders, Udi's and GIG (Gluten Intolerance Group), Pizza Hut has disrupted the "gluten free bandwagon" marketing approach and started offering a certified gluten free pizza. Gluten Free Pizzas are available TODAY at 2,400 select Pizza Hut locations. Check HERE to see all locations offering gluten free pizzas. (If you do not see the Gluten-Free Pizza tab that means it's not available at a restaurant near you)
Thanks to Udi's and Pizza Hut, I was able to tour the Pizza Hut headquarters and experience the gluten free process first hand to share it with you. Keep reading for all the details below . . . I even got to make my own gluten free pizza!

All thoughts and opinions are my own - The Pizza was BOMB.
