Schwan’s Consumer Brands launches gluten-free pizza
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.
"When it comes to pizza, sacrificing gluten should not mean that you have to sacrifice great taste," said Bob Waldron, president, Schwan's Consumer Brands.
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.
