UNDATED (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – Domino’s pizza is whipping up something new in the kitchen, gluten-free pizza for its customers who have sensitivity to gluten.
The company's new gluten-free crust is made from rice flour, potato starch, rice starch and olive oil. Domino's worked with the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness to bring their standards to the company's employees and kitchens.
"The prevalence of gluten sensitivity has become a real issue with significant impact on consumer choice, and we want to be a part of the solution," Domino's CEO J. Patrick Doyle said in a statement.
Although the crust is gluten-free, the company only recommends that those with a mild gluten allergy enjoy the pizza. It doesn't recommend the crust for those with Celiac disease because it can't fully guarantee the product hasn't come in contact with gluten.
The pizza costs $12, about $3 more than a regular pie. One slice of a 10-inch pepperoni pie has 170 calories, 3.5 grams of saturated fat and 410 milligrams of sodium.
