Detroit Style Pizza | Triumph Dining Pizza Week

People with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity can finally enjoy great-tasting gluten-free pizza and breadsticks at Detroit Style Pizza Co.‘s two metro-Detroit locations and nationwide by mail order.

Pizza maker Shawn Randazzo was inspired to craft the recipe after his wife, Keri, was diagnosed with celiac disease. The couple tried gluten-free pizzas at dozens of Detroit-area locations, only to find that most versions left much to be desired. Randazzo went to work on his own recipe, and, after countless trials he was able to bake a gluten-free pizza with dough that’s soft on the inside, crispy on the outside and as tasty as Detroit Style Pizza Co.’s other award-winning pizzas.

“I wanted to create a gluten-free pizza recipe that we loved and would be proud to share with others,” says Randazzo.

Detroit Style Pizza Co. offers two styles of gluten-free pizzas: small Detroit Style Square (four pieces) and small Pan Style Round (six pieces). The pizzas are available at the Clinton Township and St. Clair Shores locations for $6.99 plus the cost of toppings. Specialty pizzas can be made gluten-free by adding $2 to their regular price.

The Detroit Style Pizza Co. kitchen is specially designed for gluten-free prep; gluten-free menu items never come in contact with surfaces or utensils used to prepare foods that contain gluten. The pre-baked gluten-free pizza crusts are stored in FDA-approved bags until used.

“A gluten-free diet calls for no breads or wheat. It’s a total life change for many people, and it’s extremely difficult to find gluten-free bread products that taste great,” says Randazzo. “For people who love pizza but can’t eat gluten, being able to enjoy a gluten-free pizza that’s packed with flavor is a treasure.”

  1. Kudos to them!!! I wish more of these restaurants and companies would be more like them and truly understand what it means to be gluten free. I am so sick of these companies trying to capitalize on the “gluten free” bandwagon. They offer gluten free options….of course at a premium price…but then do not prepare the food in a safe environment. So it is nice to hear that this restaurant takes the time to make sure that this is done correctly. Too bad I don’t live in the area but might have to think about ordering by mail.

  2. My son and I have both enjoyed the gluten free pizza at the Clinton Twp. location. Thanks Shawn for providing the option.
