Pie Five Pizza Co., a division of Pizza Inn Holdings Inc., has added a gluten-free crust to its menu at all eight of its Dallas-Fort Worth locations.
"We are thrilled to introduce gluten-free crust to the Pie Five menu," said Interim CEO Clinton Coleman. "Now those on a gluten-free diet can still enjoy pizza on a regular basis. Our menu truly provides delicious and healthy options for everyone."
Demand for the option has increased dramatically within the past few years as more consumers identify an intolerance or insensitivity to gluten, a protein found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye.
"As a growing chain, our goal is to focus on our customers' needs while redefining the pizza dining experience. Our customers desire fresh pizza with healthy options in a timely manner, and that's what we produce," Coleman added.
Pie Five joins a growing list of pizzerias offering a gluten-free crust, including Chuck E. Cheese, Russo's, Gatti's, Uncle Maddio's, Pizza Ranch, Domino's and more.
