On the heels of the addition of gluten-free pizza to the menu at Russo's New York Pizzeria and Russo's Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen in Houston, Chef Anthony Russo has launched a gluten-free pizza line in grocery stores. From the pizza crust to the cheese, all components of the pizza are 100 percent gluten-free and produced in a gluten-free facility.

"As the demand for gluten-free products increases in the United States, we wanted to do our part by providing consumers with a great tasting and healthy meal, and something they can throw in their oven after a long day of work," says Anthony Russo, founder of the restaurants. "As the company remains passionate about freshness, only the finest ingredients will go into our gluten-free pizzas."

The new pizza line is launching in Central Texas in 2012 and includes six different varieties:  Greek, New York Style, Margherita, Chicken Rustica, Pepperoni and Italian Mozzarella, as well as Mulberry. All pizzas are made with 100-percent fresh mozzarella. The pizza crust is vegan, made with rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch and extra-virgin olive oil, infused with honey and Italian seasonings.
