Zeppe’s Pizzeria, the leader in high-quality ingredient menu items, has partnered with Still Riding Pizza—makers of a gluten free pizza crust—to enable those that are on a gluten or wheat free diet to indulge in one of life’s most popular comfort foods.
Zeppe’s Pizzeria prides itself on their award-winning Pizzas, and now even those on this restricted diet can enjoy their pizza! Joe Ciresi, President and Founder of Zeppe’s said,” We realized that 1 out of 133 people are affected with Celiac disease, and have to follow a gluten-free diet. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to serve pizza on this crust, and know that it will make it pleasurable for many customers that couldn’t have traditional pizza because of their diets.” Liz Silverman, President of Still Riding Pizza states, “Zeppe’s is the perfect partner for Still Riding Pizza. They really understand that pizza is more than just food; it’s one of the most popular ways to socialize, and now people on a gluten free diet no longer need to be left out. We’re thrilled to be partners.”
Zeppe’s Pizzeria and Still Riding Pizza will work together to maintain the purity of the gluten free pizza. The crust is produced and pre-baked at Still Riding’s own, dedicated 100% Gluten Free and Kosher certified facility in Connecticut and shipped directly to Zeppe’s 30 locations. At Zeppe’s, the pizza is assembled using uncontaminated and gluten free toppings, baked on a special baking tray so that it doesn’t touch the deck of the oven, and cut with a clean and dedicated cutter before it is served. Still Riding Pizza and Zeppe’s have collaborated on the safest preparation methods and techniques to avoid the risk of cross-contamination. The gluten free pizza is now a part of their regular menu and is available for pick-up and delivery.
Zeppe’s Pizzeria locations are open Monday through Wednesday from 11 am to 10 pm, Thursday from 11 am to 11 pm, Friday and Saturday from 11 am to midnight, and Sunday from Noon to 10 pm.
