Pie Five Pizza Co. Slices Up New Gluten-free Crust
Pie Five Pizza Co., a division of Pizza Inn Holdings Inc., is introducing a healthy new option for guests by adding Gluten Free Crust to its menu at all eight Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex locations.
“We are thrilled to introduce Gluten Free Crust to the Pie Five menu,” says Interim Pie Five 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.”
In the last few years many consumers have made a choice to reduce their consumption of gluten, a protein composite found in food processed from wheat, rye, and barley.
“As a growing fast-casual-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 says. “We can’t wait for our guests to try our new Gluten Free Crust.”
In addition to welcoming Gluten Free Crust to its menu, the Pie Five menu includes other menu enhancements such as their new delicious cheese combinations of Mozzarella and Provolone. They have also added olive oil as a healthier sauce option and a flavorful new Italian Herb Thin Crust made daily with their own blend of Italian Seasoning.
Pie Five was recently named by Nation’s Restaurant News as a 2012 Hot Concept award winner. Guests can choose from more than a million combinations of fresh made-to-order pizzas and a variety of specialty pie choices prepared in less than five minutes on a 9-inch Crispy Thin, Classic Pan, Italian Herb Thin, or Gluten Free Crust.
