RedBrick Now Offers Gluten-Free Pizza for Wheat Sensitive Diners
PALMDALE, CA--(Marketwire - January 20, 2011) - Continuing on its quest to create a healthier pizza experience for all, RedBrick Pizza, the fast-growing fast casual restaurant chain known for their fire-roasted gourmet Italian creations, has introduced a new gluten-free pizza crust especially for health conscious and wheat sensitive diners.
Every gluten-free RedBrick Pizza is made with the freshest ingredients of the highest quality including heart healthy olive oil. Each serving contains less sodium, calories, and carbs than ordinary pizza. RedBrick offers a full array of gourmet pizzas ranging from 280 to 450 calories. "We are delighted to be able to serve this audience with a delicious product that they can enjoy without guilt or worry," says Jim Minidis, co-founder and CEO of RedBrick Pizza Worldwide, Inc.
For those with celiac disease, the gluten intolerance can be severe, and although our cafés are not a gluten-free establishment, RedBrick has gone to great lengths to train their staff and utilize separate prep and bake processes to keep customers safe and prevent any potential for cross contamination. The entire process has been reviewed and accepted by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) and Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF).
"RedBrick Pizza has a meticulous production process designed around safety and consistency," noted Restaurant Dietician Darcie Ellyne. "They have a passion for healthy and wholesome food. People with celiac can be confident that they'll enjoy a reliable gluten-free pizza. They also have delicious and healthy menu items that cater to everybody in the family."
RedBrick donates a portion of all gluten-free pizza sales to CDF's Team Gluten-Free to help send children with severe wheat intolerance to summer camp. "We've been impressed with the great work Team Gluten-Free is performing with children, who through no fault of their own, often find their lives highly restricted due to the prevalence of wheat products in the marketplace," says Lynn Minidis, RedBrick co-founder.
Named The Future 50 fastest growing emerging chains in America by Restaurant Business, RedBrick Pizza Worldwide, Inc. has Neighborhood Pizza Cafés across the U.S. and Canada serving its fire-roasted gourmet pizzas, Fhazani sandwiches, chopped salads, and real Italian gelato ice cream.
