The industry leader in pizza doughs and crusts, Rich Products adds another trend-forward option to its expansive menu for restaurant operators: the Gluten-Free Parbaked Detroit Style Pizza Crust. This new 9”x7” premium personal-sized crust satisfies the growing consumer demands for gluten-free and Detroit style pizzas. Like other parbaked pizza crusts from Rich’s, the Gluten Free Detroit Style Crust offers operators the flexibility and ease of a freezer-to-oven format that bakes up reliably and consistently every time with minimal skill required.
Detroit style pizza, ranked the 4th most popular menu item on Grub Hub’s Dining Trends in 2021, turns the pizza eating experience upside down. The thick crust is first loaded with toppings, then a layer of cheese, with the sauce added last. The result is a unique pie that bakes up with perfectly crispy, caramelized cheese around the edges. Detroit pizza is designed to offer a crusty edge for convenient eating. Parbaked and ready to top, Rich’s Gluten Free Detroit Style Pizza Crust satisfies customers looking for a gluten-free, flavorful option with a crisp outside bite and airy center. Operators can top this versatile, personal-sized crust in a variety of custom ways.
“Rich’s truly has a pizza crust option for every consumer at the table,” says Alyssa Barrett, customer marketing manager, Rich Products. “The new Gluten Free Parbaked Detroit Style Pizza Crust is the ideal solution for Pizza Shops, QSRs, and fast casual restaurants. It’s a delicious crust that’s not only labor-friendly, but also uniquely meets the exploding demand for this regional pizza style and the growing requests for gluten-free alternatives.”
