In this article I give an honest review of the Pizza Hut gluten free pizzas. Most importantly I can tell you that after eating there we had no problems. I’d therefore recommend the Pizza Hut gluten free pizza to anyone with coeliac disease.
A few weeks ago I was asked to go to a Pizza Hut restaurant to review their gluten-free pizza offering.
Given my low FODMAP diet and ‘Roo’s’ coeliac disease and intolerance to dairy, I was a little wary about going.
However, after checking out the ingredients of the pizza we decided to take them up on their offer.
For those of you who are interested the base and sauce ingredients are as follows:
The pizza base is free from dairy and eggs (although may contain it) as well as being gluten-free.
However, it is not low FODMAP because there is onion and garlic powder in the sauce and some untested ingredients in the base.
Having said that I seemed to be fine after eating it so I can conclude from that that garlic and onion do not seem to give me any problems.
I’ve done a vlog to tell you about our experience. However, if you’d rather read about it then carry on below the video.
What does the pizza look like?
As soon as we arrived I informed the staff that we would need gluten free pizzas.
They were incredibly understanding and told us that we could order any pizza on the menu.
This made a wonderful change because often there are multiple toppings that aren’t gluten free.
The pizza arrived on a black board and is square to indicate it’s gluten free.
It is therefore very visually obvious that they have got the order right.
The base was the nicest I’ve had since being gluten free. It was soft yet fluffy and most importantly for me, not too sweet.
Is the salad bar gluten free?
Due to the risk of cross contamination the salad bar isn’t suitable for people with coeliac disease.
However, I asked for a bowl to be made up in the kitchen to overcome this issue.
The staff were very happy to do this but unfortunately the staff member clearly wasn’t trained well enough because he included a cous cous salad in the selection.
Although they were very apologetic about this our trust had been broken and ‘Roo’ wouldn’t eat the next bowl they brought out.
Are there gluten free puddings?
There were no gluten free puddings on the adult menu except for ice cream, which was a little disappointing.
However, the children were delighted at being able to help themselves to ‘unlimited’ ice cream.
The waiter was incredibly helpful at letting us know which toppings were suitable for us. Amazingly the majority were.
The best thing was that all the toppings come in glass jars with lids on. This means there is no possibility of cross contamination since the topping are shaken onto the ice cream.
All in all our experience was a very positive one.
I’d recommend Pizza Hut gluten free pizzas to anyone following a gluten free diet.
For the purposes of providing this review Pizza Hut gave us a gift voucher to use at a restaurant of our choice. I did not let them know in advance that we would be eating there and it did not affect my opinion of the restaurant in any way. All words and opinions are my own…and always will be!
