Pizza Express’s Professional Approach To Gluten-Free

If they’ve got it right, which I suspect they have as it’s a big pitch, Pizza Express have taken a bold approach to adding gluten-free to their menus. You open their web site and on the right is a large block labelled GLUTEN FREE.  Click it and you learn that they talk about 100% taste, risotto, brownies and even gluten-free Pilsner. They even reverse the usual dishes you can have to ones you should avoid.

They also say that their approach has been endorsed by Coeliac-UK.

I shall definitely be trying them out in the next few days.

At least it gives me somewhere to have lunch in Ipswich, when I watch the football!

  1. […] I walked past the Pizza Express in Islington this morning and looked at the menu outside to see about the gluten-free offering. […]

    • I probably will over the weekend.

      If it’s a good pizza, then it makes travelling to the further regions of the UK, so much easier.

      On the other hand, some trips like tomorrow to Burnley are not the easiest ones on which to get a meal. I shall change trains at Leeds, so I can go to Carluccio’s, which is a short distance from the station.

      Burnley though, is one of these towns without a Pizza Express, so they won’t help me.

  3. They are a bit of a backwater, I remember when they got McDonalds for the first time, 30 years ago – we lived their for a short time and Lynne was born there. Lovely people but a bit of a backwater

    • I’d agree about the people. the stewards at Turf Moor, are some of the friendliest.
