It’s like Number 9 buses, really. For years you wait (well, hours in the case of the Number 9 bus) – frustrated, annoyed, disillusioned, hopeless, near despair…. and then three of them appear, one after the other!
And so it is with freefrom pizzas! I could fill a book with the sad tales of those on gluten-free or lactose-free diets watching their non-free from friends munch through tasty Margheritas, spicy Americanos and even those much-to-be-regretted ones covered in bits of ham and pineapple chunks…..
And now, out of the blue, not only have we just hoovered up an extremely tasty Basilico’s (afraid that this is all that now remains….) covered in Lactofree cheese – unfurl the flags, all you lactose intolerants – but I have an offer of no less than five Pizza Hut gluten-free pizzas delivered hot to our door to celebrate the rollout in their restaurants next week and….. notification that Domino’s will be launching the very first home delivery gluten-free pizza at the beginning of November!!!!
Even more…. I see, tucked down at the bottom of the Coeliac UK news release, that Prezzo is now also offering gluten-free pizzas as part of its ‘classic stone-baked’ range, in all of its 173 restaurants across the UK.
If you have not all got there before us, we will be reporting on the Pizza Hut pizzas in our New products section as soon as we have tasted them, hi-ing ourselves of to a Prezzo restaurant in double quick time (a further report) and then tapping our fingers impatiently waiting for our Domino’s!
Meanwhile, if you too wish to enjoy a lactose-free Basilico’s – just check into their website here where you can order either a Margherita or a Buonissima, both made with Lactofree hard and soft cheese, and the latter ‘topped with smoked chicken, wood roasted sweet red pepper, fresh rocket and cherry tomatoes with balsamic glaze’.
