Venice Bakery, the American 'free-from' producer has brought its pizza bases and flatbreads to this year's Restaurant Show to help restaurants better cater for diners with allergies and food intolerances. 

Product details:

American 'free from' producer Venice Bakery has launched its thin and crispy 'free from' pizza bases and flatbreads in the UK at this year's Restaurant Show. The pizza bases are free from gluten, wheat, dairy, soy, corn, nuts and egg and are made in a dedicated gluten-free facility which complies with EU regulations. They are available as plain, or herb seasoned and range in size from five inches to 12 inches. Flatbreads are available as nine inch bases in either plain or herb seasoned flavours. Both products are supplied bulk frozen for and offer a frozen and chilled shelf life of six months and 21 days respectively. 


Venice Bakery says the products are versatile as they can be cooked straight from the freezer as well as allowing restaurants to cater better for those with allergies and food intolerances. It says they are 'crisper and crunchier' than pizza bases currently in the 'free from' market. 


Depending on order. Available on demand. 


The pizza bases and flatbreads are on display at The Restaurant Show at Earls Court 2 in London today at stand C70. Products can be bought online direct from​. 

Why you should buy it: 

Adam Martyn, managing director of Venice Bakery UK said the products could help diners with special dietary requirements feel more accepted when eating out as often they were excluded from eating dishes such as pizza with friends and family. “An estimated 21 million adults in the UK suffer from at least one allergy, yet many food businesses have little knowledge or expertise in this area," he said. "And we know that many restaurants, bars and hotels are keen to cater for people with intolerances & allergies but often struggle to find quality products that taste as good as mainstream items. Our pizzas and flatbreads took seven years to develop and have been praised by Vegan & Coeliac bloggers in the USA and UK. Our products provide an opportunity for food service companies to drive more footfall into their companies and at the same time help them comply with the new EU food labelling legislation."

When will more restaurants cater for Coeliacs?

Posted by Niamh,

We loved the Venice BakeryUK products at the Allergy Show in London in May. We'd love more restaurants and bars local to us to stock their products. But companies seem so slow to embrace catering for Coeliacs? Why ? 1 in 100 people have Coeliac Disease and recent research in the USA shows 1 in 10 people can't digest gluten at all. We're very loyal customers & rarely eat out on our own. So come on restaurants & bars get with the programme & start catering for us. We WANT to eat out like everyone else can!
