Growing up geographically isolated in the north mountains of Pennsylvania, we didn’t have a lot of restaurants. I mean, there were definitely some -- a local sub shop, the bakery adjoining the bowling alley, the “famous” diner, and my favorite bagel place. When we wanted pizza? It was one hundred percent Pizza Hut! In fact, Pizza Hut might actually be responsible for my love of reading and writing, since I participated in its BookIt program way back when:
Reading for pizza -- that’s a beautiful thing.
When BlogHer gave me the opportunity to try out Pizza Hut’s® new "Gluten-Free Pizza", through its partnership with Udi's® and their certified gluten-free crust, I was super excited. Now that we live in an area that was once dominated by Italians, I haven’t had their pizza as often. But those taste buds of mine have a definite nostalgic craving from time to time.
At the present moment, the gluten-free pizzas are available in a 10-inch small size. I spoke with the manager at our location, and she mentioned that there have been quite a few people coming in and ordering the GF option lately. She was actually thrilled to hear I was reviewing it because she’s seen such a positive response and wants to get the word out.
Cool, but how does it taste?
First, we got our pie home and it was the perfect size for a mommy and me lunch. Well, and a few slices leftover for Stephen to sample as well. I will admit I was expecting a crust more like Pizza Hut’s pan pizzas -- so if that could ever happen, I’d be totally wowed! That being said, the thin and crispy crust was delicious with all the flavor I remember of Pizza Hut.
And Ada ate her whole slice, so that’s a good review in itself.
Though we aren’t a gluten-free family, we know many who do follow this diet and, well, it’s really a lifestyle. It’s nice to have gluten-free options on the go as much as it is to have vegetarian and vegan options. I like how both chain restaurants, like Pizza Hut, and local eateries are recognizing different diets and catering their menus accordingly.
