Authentic Restaurant-style Pizza for the Gluten-free Consumer

Sonoma Flatbreads by Donatos® to Showcase its New Gluten-Free Flatbread Pizzas at Chicago-area Gluten & Allergen Free Expo

COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Coming off a successful exposition of their newest gluten-free pizza at Natural Products Expo West in March, Sonoma Flatbreads by Donatos® is continuing to rise. The emerging new brand will exhibit at the Gluten & Allergen Free (GFAF) Expo in Schaumburg, IL, on April 12-13, 2014. The Gluten & Allergen Free Expo, which attracts more than 20,000 gluten-free and allergen-free consumers each year, is hosting the first iteration of its six-city tour this year in the Chicago area. The Expo features presenters who are experts in the gluten and allergen free space and is touted to be the largest gluten free exposition in the United States.

Sonoma Flatbreads by Donatos offers authentic restaurant-style pizza for gluten-free consumers.

Appealing to everyday and gourmet pizza lovers alike – and to those who like to personalize their pizza – the newest offering to join the Sonoma Flatbreads line of gluten-free pizzas is Chicken and Fire Roasted Peppers. This 12" pizza has a net weight of 18.88 ounces and includes a special Crushed Red Pepper spice packet.

Exhibiting at Gluten & Allergen Free Expo is timely for Jane's Dough Foods, an independent, family-owned company celebrating more than 50 years of business, as the company is innovating the way consumers think about gluten-free pizza. "We are redefining gluten-free pizza by combining the flavors and ingredients that speak to today's consumer with 50 years of restaurant industry know-how," says Alan Hoover, General Manager of Jane's Dough Foods, maker of Sonoma Flatbreads. The pizza features antibiotic-free chicken that was fed a vegetarian diet and is minimally processed. The pepper trio includes fire roasted green, red, and yellow bell peppers. A rich tomato sauce and lightly smoked provolone round out the offering. Made with "simply honest ingredients," there are no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives in any of the Sonoma Flatbreads line. Each serving of the new pizza flavor provides 14 grams of protein. The suggested retail price is $8.99.

Get Your "Za" at GFAF
In addition to the new Sonoma Flatbreads Chicken and Fire Roasted Peppers variety, three existing gluten-free pizzas will be available for sampling. They include:

  • Uncured Pepperoni that is nitrate and nitrite-free.
  • Three Cheese featuring smoked Provolone with Parmesan and Romano.
  • Margherita featuring fresh pearl mozzarella and Roma tomatoes.

The Sonoma Flatbreads by Donatos line was first introduced into the Kroger "Nature's Market" set in their Columbus, Ohio division in January 2013. Within the first 12 months, the gluten-free pizzas had become the #1 and #2 best-selling gluten-free pizzas in that Kroger division. Sonoma Flatbreads by Donatos are also available at leading retailers including Giant Eagle, Meijer, Hy-Vee, Heinen's, Roche Brothers, Raisin Rack and numerous independent retailers across the country have taken on the line. Distributors include Bozzuto's, Lipari Foods, KeHe, Sherwood, Clover Mountain, and Merry Milk Maid.

In the Chicago area, Sonoma Flatbreads by Donatos can be found at Caputo's, Mariano's, and other leading supermarkets and specialty food stores.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
