Allergy Free Pizza Tasting - August 27th

I have been in contact with Raleigh resident and entrepreneur Maria Hopper over the last few months about a project she has been working on - totally allergen-free pizza crusts! You may remember my post back in June on this topic where Maria was seeking input on the product idea.

Maria got back in touch with me a few weeks ago and mentioned she has further developed the product and is ready for some feedback. She stated that she heard common complaints that Gluten Free crusts often contain other common allergens which makes them difficult to eat for GF folks and/or Celiacs. Things like yeast, lactose, corn or soy.

Maria has been on the hunt for a great crust that would be Gluten Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free and Top 8 Allergen Free (milk, egg, peanut, tree nut, fish, shellfish, soy & wheat). Theoretically, a worry free crust for everyone to enjoy, and now she's ready for your feedback.

Wanna Try It?
If you are interested in a free tasting of this new allergen-free pizza crust, please contact Maria Hopper via email. The tasting will be held on Thursday, August 27th, 2009 from 6:30pm - 7:30pm at the Stonebridge neighborhood clubhouse located in North Raleigh. Maria will have fully prepared pizzas for your tasting enjoyment but her eventual end product will most likely be crusts that you bake and top yourself. After tasting your pizza, please take a few minutes to fill out a short evaluation of the crusts. Maria will use this information to further fine tune her product. This is a win-win situation for both Maria and Gluten Free consumers. How often do you get the chance to shape the products under development before they are released? This should prevent you from saying "I wish it was like this or that" or "Why didn't they ask my input before they made this".
See below for full details.
