Turoni’s Now Offers Gluten Free Pizza
When I first met my husband, Doug, he told me that he couldn't eat pizza, because he had Celiac Disease. This was in 2001, long before Gluten Free diets became a thing. Going out to eat was extremely difficult. There were no GF menus, so there was always a chance that he would get sick, soon after a meal. That has actually happened several times, and it's not good for Anyone in the house. Yuck! Fast forward several years, and he now has a lot of options in restaurants and the grocery store. Labels are easier to read, and the general public has somewhat of an understanding about Gluten. I love researching restaurants, to find more GF options.
I'm not sure when they added this to their menu, but Turoni's now has a GF pizza!! But, how does it taste? I actually tried a piece of Doug's pizza, and I couldn't tell that it was a Gluten Free crust! It was very comparable to their regular thin crust pizza. And, even though there is a chance for cross-contamination in the kitchen, he didn't get sick. Of the 7 other restaurants that offer GF pizza (Pizza Hut, Papa John's, Azzip, MOD, Rocca Bar North, Domino's & Papa Murphy's) Turoni's is easily in the top 3.
Celiac disease is a serious autoimmune disorder that can occur in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. It is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide. Two and one-half million Americans are undiagnosed and are at risk for long-term health complications.
