Correction: Pizza Nut… I Mean Pizza Hut… February 18, 2012

Update:  While it appears that Pizza Hut has updated their allergen information to remove some of their peanut and tree nut designations on their menu, I was still surprised to see what allergens were present in non-obvious menu items.  For example, their sauce still contains egg, dairy, wheat, soy, shellfish and gluten.  The lasagna contains tree nuts.  I stand by my recommendation below to check their allergen list before visiting or ordering from a Pizza Hut if you have food allergies.

Updated Pizza Hut Allergen List


I had heard through the grapevine that Pizza Hut’s sauce is not safe for people with tree nut allergies.   Sure enough, if you check on their website, not only is Pizza Hut’s sauce made on equipment commonly used to manufacture tree nut products, but also egg, milk, wheat, soy and shellfish products.   If you frequent Pizza Hut, it might be worth it to check out their allergen chart as I found many surprise cross-contamination issues.

    My son is in first grade, and his class participates in the Book-It program sponsored by Pizza Hut. If a child reads for 20 a day for a month and records it on a chart, he or she earns a cerfiticate for a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut. My son was SO excited to earn his pizza. But, because he has an egg allergy, I called in advance to see if there were any egg products in the pizza (thinking more of crust). I was SHOCKED to find out their sauce has EGG in it! In pizza sauce?? Really?? My son was so disappointed that he couldn’t eat there. So was I. That was the first time that I foudn egg in pizza sauce. Needless to say, we don’t eat a Pizza Hut.

    FYI if you look at their updated allergen info on their webiste (as of May 2011 right now) the allergen warnings are no longer listed!

    How the hell does lasagne contain tree nuts? I’m half Italian – & it shouldn’t! That’s ridiculous and shows how little thought they’ve given to the allergy issue. Black Mark for Pizza Hut. Any idea if the ingredients are the same in the UK? I may do some digging to find out…..

    I ordered the Italian Farmhouse pizza with ham and mushroom after checking with the staff whether it was ok or not as I have a nut allergy. They said it was safe to eat but afterwards I had a severe allergic reaction. I cannot now eat at Pizza Hut.

  5. […] don’t have one very close to us AND they have a strange relationship with food allergies (see “Correction: Pizza Nut… I Mean, Pizza Hut” from 2012), I needed to do extra homework in preparation for my son to eat […]
