Leeds Restaurant Launches Wheat-free Pizza

Leeds restaurant Salvo's has cooked up a perfect pizza partnership with a Bradford-based food business – to launch a new gluten and wheat-free pizza base mix.

Isabel Gordon, director and creative chef at Brazilian Flavours, joined forces with Gip Dammone, co-owner of Salvo's in Headingley. Mr Dammone says he wanted to develop a pizza base that not only tasted "just like mama used to make" but was gluten and wheat-free too – an offering which would cater for the rising number of customers who are gluten and wheat intolerant.

Brazilian Flavours' ingredients are all naturally gluten and wheat-free so the two businesses teamed up. Isabel said: "Since launching Brazilian Flavours in 2005, our mission has been to produce natural foods with little known exotic flavours, inspired by the vibrant culture of Brazil.

"The Brazilian flours I work with are naturally gluten and wheat-free, so by using a combination of these special allergy flours, Gip and I were able to develop a mix which creates delicious thin crust Neapolitan style pizzas with a lovely chewy texture for the base."
