For those not familiar with a gluten-free diet it was developed to help the many people who have celiac disease. This disease is triggered by the protein gluten found in foods containing wheat, barley, and rye. Celiac disease is an autoimmune digestive disease and so far the only known way of combating it is a lifelong gluten-free diet.
Here at La Befana Pizzeria none of us are medical students and so we’re not experts in the disease and don’t know anything about celiac disease beyond what we’ve just shared. But we do know there is no reason now why those with this condition can’t enjoy our gourmet pizzas.
In recent years gluten-free diets have also been introduced to those wishing to lose weight by reducing their wheat intake, and so requests for gluten-free products are on the rise generally in North America.
La Befana Pizzeria in Allston Massachusetts offers gluten-free dough upon request when you call in your order. This is dough made without traditional wheat flour. We will explain what is offered daily in our gluten free pizza selection so you can make appropriate choices.
Be aware gluten-free dough is made in same kitchens as using wheat flour and there is always the possibility of cross-contamination.
Gluten-free pizza is just another way La Befana offers Gourmet pizza for our Allston and Brighton customers. We hope you enjoyed learning about how we’re doing our very best to serve the pizza lover’s in our neighborhood.
