I was one of the first to break the news of Panago's gluten free pizza crust. What's the significance about that? Up until then, there has been no widely available pizza deliver company that has a gluten free crust. All the others like Pizzeria Prego are small businesses that are great to visit for a treat, or delivery if you live in the neighborhood. Don't get me wrong, Pizzeria Prego has an awesome pizza, just not as convenient for families like ours that don't live near 111st and the Whitemud in Edmonton. I also know Boston Pizza has a gluten free crust, and although they do delivery, Boston Pizza is made for dine-in.
So now with Panago having a gluten free crust, ordering gluten free pizza now becomes convenient! Why so? Well they have a central call centre for delivery, or you can order online. You can also order pick, and only wait 15 minutes for your pizza.
Panago has a wide selection of specialty pizza's available, all great, and most gluten free. If you build your own pizza they also have a lot of gluten free toppings like their pepperoni and BBQ sauce that I wrote about in my previous post. Also convenient, the call centre has a list of the gluten free toppings.
So how is their pizza crust? Its really good! It is a thin crust with a good crunch to it. Panago's gluten free crust is also square so you can't get it confused with their standard crust. I ordered it pickup so I can go into the location and check things out. I asked to look at the packaging, and they have each pizza crust individually wrapped to avoid the chances cross contamination. That was really great to see. However, and quite understandably, they still put a sticker on the box that says may contain traces of gluten. I believe they have to do that because they are not in a strictly gluten free kitchen. So I know this scared most people away, but business have to have disclaimers like that. Amanda is not phased by those disclaimers and knows to just ask questions about preparation and ingredients before she continues.
