Great news for gluten-free pizza lovers, especially all DiGiorno fans who have been missing their favorite frozen pizza since they went gluten-free.
DiGiorno shakes up the frozen pizza game with its new gluten-free pizza. Both pizzas are available in the flavors of pepperoni and four cheese and are certified gluten-free. They contain DiGiorno’s thick, hand-tossed crust and 100 percent real cheese.
The hot peppers are made from a mix of pork, chicken, and beef, while the mix of four cheeses includes mozzarella, Parmesan, Asiago, and Romano cheeses.
DiGiorno gluten-free pizzas are currently available in select Target stores across the country at a suggested retail price of $ 9.99 each. DiGiorno plans to offer its gluten-free pizzas at numerous other national retailers later this year.

No it does not. The second ingredient listed is wheat starch with an asterisk that says “The wheat has been processed so the food meets FDA requirements for gluten-free foods. No certification listed anywhere; only GLUTEN-FREE in huge letters.
Daiya Gluten Free Pizza Supreme from Canada. Dairy, soy and gluten free, certified gluten free. Not genetically modified, vegan and significantly cheaper than the other gluten-free brands in my supermarket. Adequate facsimile. 1 mg potassium and 2 mg sodium per calorie.
I’m sure it’s gluten free, but some forum members have reported reactions to Daiya products, possibly due to one of its ingredients, possibly xanthan gum:
Shortly after we published this article there were comments that it contained wheat starch containing gluten which we couldn’t check at this point because the pizzas weren’t on the shelf and we couldn’t reach Nestle. We finally got our answer and the product actually contains wheat starch and we have revised the article. Of course the product is still considered « gluten-free » but we are currently investigating why it can be labeled this way and still contains wheat.

Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and due to the almost complete lack of information available at the time, he had to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he started the website that later became Celiac.com to help diagnose as many people with celiac disease as possible so they can live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers and founder and editor of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded the Gluten-Free Mall, which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products and is 100% endorsed by advertisers.
