Since November, when I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease, I haven't eaten out. As a family, due to Mikey's food allergies, we rarely ate out anyway, but my best friend Tracey and I used to eat out every other week or so.
Last night was our regular catch up night. Normally, Tracey would come round to our house and we'd sit, laugh and chat over a cup of tea as I don't eat out. I know, tea sounds so hardcore!
This time though, Tracey recommended Pizza Express as they have a gluten free menu. I have to say that I was a bit sceptical. Usually a gluten free menu has the small print that says something along the lines of "we cannot guarantee gluten free due to the risk of cross-contamination."
Before agreeing, I decided to look it up online. Their website is really easy to use so I found what I was looking for quickly.
I have to say I was really surprised, but in a good way. Scratch that, in a great way! It says:
"We’ve worked hard to ensure that you can be fully confident of no issues upon entering any PizzaExpress. This includes changing processes in our kitchens – including labelling and storage, using new equipment only for gluten-free food, as well as changing the flour we use for tossing and stretching our dough to be gluten-free.
