If you’re one of the millions of people across the country who suffers from celiac disease, your dining options may be significantly limited, especially when dining out. As many as 1 in 100 people throughout the world are affected by this serious autoimmune disease where the ingestion of gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley, can lead to damage of the small intestine. The long-term health risks for celiac sufferers, as well as the estimated 2 million Americans who are going undiagnosed, are serious. When someone with celiac disease consumes a food that includes gluten, their body sets up an immune response that can attack their small intestines. This can lead to improper absorption of nutrients into the body, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and a number of other long term consequences which can be quite serious. Celiac disease runs in families and when someone in your family suffers from the disease, close family members run a 1 in 10 risk of also developing the condition.
Gluten can be found in a number of common foods that Americans eat on a daily basis including pastas, noodles, breads and pastries, crackers, cereal and granola, cookies, pretzels, bagels, pancakes, crepes, croutons, sauces and gravies that use wheat flour as a thickening agent, soy sauce, cream sauce, flour tortillas, beer and pizza. Giving up your favorite foods, like pizza, seems unfair but fortunately, many restaurants, bakeries and grocery stores are offering foods and ingredients that are gluten free.
At Palio’s Pizza Café, you can enjoy any of our freshly made traditional or specialty pizzas without fear of suffering from the painful symptoms of celiac disease. Our gluten free crusts, just like our traditional crusts, are made fresh daily with the finest of ingredients. Our gluten free pizza crusts allow our customers to indulge in one of America’s favorite foods along with their friends and family. Palio’s Pizza Café is proud to offer our customers the choices they need to enjoy the foods the love. In addition to our gluten free pizzas, we offer a wide variety of veggies and meat toppings, which are sure to please every taste and cater to most dietary restrictions.
Palio’s Pizza Café offers a gluten free pizza crust that can safely be consumed by our celiac customers. However, please be advised we cannot guarantee 100% gluten free pizza as there is always a small risk of cross-contamination.
