What Does “Gluten-Free” Pizza Mean?

Gluten Free PizzaThe term “gluten-free” has been en vogue for at least the last decade, as more and more people adopt a gluten-free diet. Surprisingly, though, many people don’t know what gluten-free means.

Gluten is a protein composite typically found in wheat, barley, rye and other things. It acts like glue in foods, helping them hold their shape.

Certain people can experience health problems if they consume gluten. For instance, there are gluten-related disorders such as gluten ataxia, dermatitis herpetiformis, celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

Celiac disease got attention in the press in recent years because TV hostess/commentator Elisabeth Hasselbeck (Fox & Friends, The View) has it. Her book, The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide, helped shed some light on the subject. Symptoms typically associated with Celiac disease include recurrent diarrhea, abdominal bloating, and malnutrition. For more information about Celiac disease, please visit: http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/celiac-disease/celiac-disease-symptoms#1

What happens when someone who shouldn’t have gluten ends up consuming it? Typically, they’ll experience gastrointestinal troubles. It can irritate a person’s irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.

Some naturally gluten-free foods include meat, fish, eggs, and vegetables.

Since 2013, thanks to a FDA ruling, any product labelled gluten-free in the U.S. must not contain an ingredient that’s a gluten-containing grain or derivative thereof.

One of the most popular foods on the planet is pizza. In the Buffalo area, pizza lovers know and love Bocce Club Pizza.

Pizza Cleanse Can Help You Lose Weight

Pizza Cleanse

Yes, you read that right, one man claims that he ate pizza every day and it helped him to lose 100 pounds.


Italian chef and current New Yorker, Pasquale Cozzolino told Good Morning America how he lost over 100 pounds in the summer just eating pizza every day.


At over 370 pounds, Cozzolino realized it was time to lose weight once he was struggling to play with his son and that his doctor told him he was at serious risk of a heart attack.


That’s when the Italian chef started making his own pizzas out of fresh materials and eating them for lunch every day. And being a chef from the homeland, making the delicious pizza wasn’t hard.


According to Cozzolino, the key to his weight loss success on his pizza diet was that “fresh food is your medicine and when you eat a pizza, you don’t need anything else.”


Taking a quick look at his Instagram account, it looks like he has stuck with the pizza diet and is still cooking and eating them for his daily meals.


Can’t fault him, great pizza is addicting!


Of course, good exercise and supplementing the diet with other good meals helped Cozzolino to lose the weight.


So we must know, would you go on a Bocce’s Club Pizza diet? Are you already on a Bocce’s diet? How tasty would that be, and could you help yourself by not eating the whole pizza?

Eating Heathy, Gluten-Free Pizza in 2015

By far the most popular trend going on in America is trying to eat healthier. Working out at the gym is great and watching your other vices is good too, but making sure you are eating better with the correct portions really makes people feel better about themselves. That’s why eateries around the United States have been looking to accommodate and cater to the consumer who is looking for a healthier meal option.


For pizza companies this can be a challenge mostly because there is a stigma that pizza isn’t healthy for you. That stigma couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, Pizza is a great source of nutrients for the diet of Americans. But it’s all about willpower and being able to not load up on those appetizing toppings, while watching your portions.


Another way is to watch your gluten. Gluten is a protein that’s found in barley, rye, and wheat, as well as foods that are made with these ingredients, but traditional pizza crust that is made with wheat or white flour; these varieties do contain gluten. Most toppings are naturally gluten-free; cheese, vegetables and tomato sauce.


Gluten –Free Pizza can be made in different, delicious ways. It doesn’t have to be limited to a particular make or specialty, as you can still enjoy those delectable toppings you have always loved.
