On the heels of the addition of gluten-free pizza to the menu at Russo’s New York Pizzeria and Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen, Chef Anthony Russo is launching a gluten-free pizza line in grocery stores. From the pizza crust to the cheese, all components of the pizza will be 100 percent gluten-free and produced in a gluten-free facility.
“As gluten-free products have become a larger demand in the United States, we wanted to do our part by providing consumers with a great tasting and healthy meal, and something they can throw in their oven after a long day of work,” says Anthony Russo, founder of the restaurants. “As the company remains passionate about freshness, only the finest ingredients will go into our gluten-free pizzas.
The new pizza line is launching in Central Texas in 2012 and include six different varieties, including Greek, New York Style, Margherita, Chicken Rustica, Pepperoni and Italian Mozzarella, as well as Mulberry. “While we will initially launch the product line in Texas, we look forward to introducing the pizzas nationwide over the next several years,” adds Russo.
