And because we can’t imagine a life without pizza either, at Hungry Howie’s®, we spent hours and hours developing the perfect gluten-free pizza crust.

Even if you don’t have a gluten sensitivity, our gluten-free pizza crust is a healthier option for those trying to keep a healthy lifestyle. We’re not here to talk about calories, but about flavor and health benefits, so keep scrolling to find out why we think gluten-free pizza is great for you.
Benefits of Gluten-Free Pizza Crust
Alright, these are not benefits specific to the gluten-free pizza crust. In reality, these are benefits of following a gluten-free diet or to minimizing the amount of gluten we eat on a regular basis. This is what gluten-free does to your body:
Gives you more energy: Following a gluten-free diet can help lower cholesterol levels and improve your digestions. This means you will feel a lot better overall.
Helps with your pizza belly: While gluten alone will not make you lose weight, it can help bring down the bloating most of us experience when eating gluten. So, if you’re on a date and want to give a good first impression, definitely order the gluten-free pizza crust.
Keeps insulin controlled: You’ve probably heard your mom talking about sodas, fried foods, and insulin levels. Now, you can tell her you ordered gluten-free pizza which can actually reduce insulin spikes.
Lowers illness risks: Although gluten-free pizza won’t turn you into Superman, it can help lower your risk of heart disease, reduce cancer risks, and help you avoid viruses. This is because gluten-free food options are often packed with antioxidants that act as your body’s armor.
Fights acne: This one is our favorite. Acne is often the result of inflammation in our bodies. Since gluten-free options help bring the inflammation down that means your gluten-free pizza crust order can help you get a clearer complexion.
Of course, gluten sensitive pizza lovers have the biggest benefit yet, they get to avoid gluten symptoms, which are often very embarrassing. And those of you who want to jump to the healthy side of things can still indulge in their favorite food: pizza.
What’s On the Gluten-Free Pizza?
The one thing that is not on this pizza is obviously gluten. But, gluten-free pizza crusts have many different recipes. In the Hungry Howie’s® gluten-free pizza crust you’re not going to find any barley, wheat, or rye.
What you will find in our gluten-free pizza crust is water, rice starch, rice flour, potato starch, some olive oil, tapioca flour, yeast, and salt. However, here’s the thing: At Hungry Howie’s® we have open kitchens, which means your gluten-free crust might be in contact with gluten. Overall, our gluten-free pizza crust contains less than 20 ppm of gluten, which is 0.002% of gluten, so virtually nothing.
Toppings Selections for Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts
Here’s another thing to consider when ordering gluten-free pizza crusts. While the pizza crust might be gluten-free, your toppings selections might not. For starters mozzarella cheese is gluten free, so you don’t have to worry about that.
Here’s a list of gluten-free pizza toppings you could choose from:
- Italian sausage
- Black olives
- Green peppers
- Hot peppers
There’s a whole world of possibilities when it comes to ordering gluten-free pizza crust. In fact, at Hungry Howie’s® we even made our famous Flavored Crust® available gluten-free, so the possibilities are officially endless.
