Remember the Gluten Free Please! Bakery in Clovis? That business is no more, but don’t worry gluten-free fans, the P*DE*Q Bakery has taken it over and is keeping the gluten-free options. The bakery is at 435 N. Clovis Ave., Suite 106, at Herndon and Clovis avenues next to Jimmy John’s.
It serves P*DE*Qs, of course, the locally made Brazilian cheese bread — short for pão de queijo — that is gluten free. Everything else is gluten free too, including sandwiches, pizza slices, 12 kinds of cupcakes, muffins and pizza dough that you can take home and roll out. The bakery also carries five kinds of fresh gluten-free bread, some of them vegan.
The bakery also sells some other gluten-free brands in its cooler, including chicken nuggets, onion rings and pie crust.
Ever since friendly Flavia Takahashi-Flores launched her business across the street from Fresno High in 2011, it’s been taking off. That location will stay open, by the way. Flavia is gearing up to sell a 36-pack of P*DE*Qs in area Costco stores. She’s also working on three more products — a gluten-free version of Cheez-It crackers, pizza dough and a multi-grain bread — that she hopes to sell at stores soon.
