photo (11)To kick off Gluten-Free Pizza Week on the Triumph Dining Blog, we wanted to share with you our great experience of attending the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas this past spring.

Our purpose for attending was to gauge the prevalence of gluten-free in the pizza industry. To achieve this goal we were granted a press pass from the show organizers.

There were more than 1,000 vendors at the show including some old friends showing their commercial gluten-free pizza crust offerings:

  • ·         Udi’s
  • ·         Kinnikinnick
  • ·         Schar
  • ·         Conte’s
  • ·         Venice Bakery, and
  • ·         Pamela’s

 

In addition, we were pleased to meet some new vendors like Minsa, Rizzuto, DeIorio’s and Richs; all of whom had new crust and dough offerings made from corn and rice.

Stay tuned tomorrow for Part 2 of an overview of the Pizza Expo as well as a continuation of Pizza Week!
