BOSTON -- Following a successful market test, Uno Chicago Grill will offer its new, gluten-free pizza nationally, the company has announced.
Uno's gluten-free pizza received positive feedback from guests who suffer from celiac disease, which affects approximately 1 percent of the population. Word-of-mouth reaction from the gluten-free community during the northeastern market test prompted the company to advance the timetable for a national rollout, company officials said.
The company spent more than a year of research and development to find the right recipe for its pizza. The company's gluten-free menu has 20 items ranging from entrees, salads, sides and desserts.
