Schwan's Consumer Brands has introduced two varieties of Freschetta frozen gluten-free pizza: four cheese medley and signature pepperoni.
The company said it hoped the product could be enjoyed by the "whole family" regardless of dietary restrictions.

The new Freschetta pizzas are certified by the Celiac Sprue Association.
Freschetta gluten-free pizza is being offered throughout the US with an RRP of US$9.99.
