In fact, in the US, they have two pizzas which already come prepared so there’s almost no chance of cross contact in the kitchen. There’s a ready made gluten free cheese pizza and a ready made gluten free pepperoni pizza – both of which are certified gluten free, and certified by the Gluten Intolerance Group.
The gluten free crust they use at Pizza Hut is a popular brand that you may already be familiar with. The brand is called Udi’s and has quite a large selection of gluten free products that you can find available in most grocery stores in the US.
