August 12, 2013 // Franchising.com // TULSA - Top That! Pizza announces the introduction of an all-natural gluten-free crust to its menu. The product is currently available in select locations and is slated to roll out system-wide by August 19th.
“We didn’t want to rush to the table with gluten-free because early on, it seemed like everything out there was unacceptable. Instead, we took our time in selecting the very best product we could find. The result is an option that anyone will want to order – regardless of whether they’re allergic to gluten or not,” said Lori Walderich, co-founder. “This crust is light, crispy, has lots of flavor and just happens to be gluten-free.”
Top That! Pizza’s 10” gluten-free pizza crust features Smart Flour™ – a naturally gluten free flour blend of ancient grains, sorghum, amaranth and teff which provide vitamins, minerals, fiber and flavor that are missing from other gluten free products. It is also naturally free of wheat, casein, dairy, soy and egg.
“We can now provide those who are avoiding gluten with something that they will really like,” continues Walderich. “Nobody should have to cross pizza off their list or compromise taste and quality just because they are sensitive to the ingredients in traditional pizza crust.”
Because of the high quality of the crust, a $2.99 charge will be added to the regular pizza price. “We’ve already heard from our guests that it is worth it”, says Walderich.
Top That! Pizza was founded in Tulsa, Oklahoma by Jeff and Lori Walderich in 2010 and is nationally recognized as the world’s first restaurant that specializes in quick, personal-sized pizzas with unlimited toppings for a single affordable price – thus creating and defining a new category in the pizza industry. The concept lets guests watch and oversee the creation of their pizza in much the same way as they might in a sub sandwich shop, choosing from a white, multigrain or honey wheat crust and a wide selection of sauces, vegetables, meats and cheeses. They are then presented with their freshly-baked pizzas in less than three minutes after they are ordered. All locations feature the innovative Coca-Cola Freestyle fountain with its thousands of beverage combinations, as well as localized topping choices and desserts.
In addition to the store locations above, Top That! Pizza also has also opened franchise locations in Tulsa, OK, Edmond, OK, Mansfield, TX, Richardson, TX, Denton, TX, Aurora, CO and Colorado Springs, CO. plus one international unit in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Multi-unit franchise opportunities are available.
