Pete's Gluten Free is a full service commercial kitchen that offers a wide range of products, including mouth-watering breads, pies both savoury and fruit, gourmet pizzas, squares, muffins, desserts and custom cakes. A gluten, nut and peanut free facility, we also offer, sauces, jams, spice mixes, Olivia Chocolate, Honey Bars and local Lower Town canning products, the full line of Le Veneziane pasta and local wheat free oats from Hilray whole grains in our retail section.
Directors Peter and Gaetan, both holistic nutritionists, have created a healthier gluten free option and strive to bring the highest quality products to the forefront. Their goal is to create and develop options with delicious textures and flavours that are uncommon in the current market.
Our fresh baked breads are soft and moist with a delicate texture, and unlike many other gluten free breads, they do not need to be toasted to be enjoyed. They are not only gluten, nut and peanut free, but also free from dairy, casein, lactose, corn, soy, beans and potato, with varieties like pumpernickel, like-rye, raisin, sandwich and our healthiest yet the quinoa multi grain, they’re so delicious you’ve got to try them all!
We make our gourmet pizzas with our dough and fresh ingredients, the are frozen and ready for the oven.
Fresh from our ovens, we cater to every sweet tooth with a variety of delectable desserts – from cookies and squares to cakes, cupcakes and pies. Options can be vegan, casein, or soy free. Pete’s Gluten Free means you can still have your cake and eat it too!
After years of trial and error in our kitchen, we have developed an exclusive gluten free flour mix of whole non GMO grains and seeds that bakes up perfectly every time. We call this exclusive flour mixture “S.M.A.R.T.” after it’s primary ingredients. That’s our secret ingredient, and now we sell it on it’s own, so you can bake and enjoy it at home too. We’ve struck the perfect balance – and it’s exclusive to Pete’s.
Sorghum, Millet, Arrowroot, brown Rice and Tapioca – a special mix of whole non GMO grains and seeds – that’s what “smart” means to us. Our breads are enriched with flax, which is an excellent source of antioxidants and contains 2/3 whole grains and seeds. As a result S.M.A.R.T. provides naturally occurring protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals like a B-complex, iron, and folic acid, plus all our breads are naturally preserved with Vitamin C. As holistic nutritionists, we choose not use casein (dairy), corn, soy, canola or potato, as they are either GMO or part of the nightshade family of vegetables which can be inflammatory to the body.
We look forward to having you visit our kitchen in person, but it’s good to know that Pete’s Gluten Free is spreading fast throughout the Ottawa/Gatineau region. You can find our products in the stores fresh after 3:30PM and restaurants listed below;
