Smart Flour Foods Introduces Ancient-Grain Products at Pizza Expo

Austin, TX – Smart Flour Foods, the leading provider of gluten-free pizza crusts to restaurants across the country, is launching an exciting lineup of ancient-grain based foodservice products at The International Pizza Expo, March 19-22, booth #1255. Each premium product is certified gluten free, crafted with the highest quality, clean ingredients, and features a delicious taste and texture that appeals to a mainstream audience. Inspired by the success of the company’s proprietary Smart Flour® blend made with sorghum, amaranth and teff, the following whole-grain offerings are already gaining industry recognition.


Tavern Style Crusts – Light in color, balanced in flavor, and harnessing the power of the ancient grain sorghum, this crust bakes up like a traditional white flavor crust and is slightly sweeter than the brand’s multi-grain option made with Smart Flour®. Available in 10” and 12” round sizes.

Dessert Bars – Back by popular demand, Smart Flour Foods is relaunching its decadent Chocolate Bomb Brownies and Salted Butterscotch Blondie Bars. Unleashing the power of ancient grains on decadent sweets, these crave-worthy products made with Smart Flour® come individually packaged for scannable counter sales or available in fully-cooked, slab-in trays, ready to cut and serve. Be sure to stop by the booth for a sample!

Snack Bites – A modern take on classic pizza rolls, these ancient-grain, gluten-free pizza bites come in three time-tested flavors: Three Cheese, Uncured Pepperoni, and Sausage-n-Pepperoni. Perfect for appetizers and kids’ menus, Smart Flour® Snack Bites are ready from oven-to-table in eight minutes, offering a convenience that operators highly value.

Hoagies and Buns – Smart Flour Foods is proudly showing buns and hoagies that feature an exceptional flavor you must try. Perfect for hot or cold applications, toasted or not, these ancient-grain, gluten-free breads are shelf stable up to seven days at ambient temperature. Come by the booth for a taste.

“Our goal has always been to make great tasting gluten-free products that our customers enjoy eating and are worthy of getting excited about. We’re not striving to be the biggest, but the best at what we do. That’s why when our customers speak, we listen and respond,” shared Charlie Pace, president & CEO of Smart Flour Foods. “Our ancient-grain based Smart Flour® blend, a 2017 International Pizza Expo World Champion Winner, has been very well received over the years. Our hope is that these new ancient-grain products will continue to please palates across the country with every bite.”

Smart Flour Foods’ new foodservice items will be available with no minimum order through DOT Foods starting Spring 2018. Ask your distributor sales rep for more details or request samples by emailing
