In addition to providing safely prepared gluten-free food for all, the museum has decided to add Gluuteny to their dessert options! Look for our cookies, quickbreads, brownies, and more in both the Carnegie Cafe and Fossil Fuels eateries. 412-622-3131
Now carrying an assortment of our desserts! All of their menus already highlight gluten-free offerings, so if you haven't been there already it is time to check them out! Check the showcase next time you are there and ask for us by name! 412-661-9355
Look for our baking mixes in the baking aisle, fresh cookies and brownies on the shelves by the registers, and cupcakes, bread, pizza pockets and pesto pockets in the freezer section! They also carry various other gluten and casein free name brand products, making this a one stop stop. 412-242-3598
We deliver fresh baked goodies every Tuesday and Friday around noon. You can find fresh cookies, quickbreads, cupcakes, tarts, sliced bread, and pizza crusts. If you miss us on those days, check the freezer section for some freshly frozen products. We are also happy to take your cake orders and have them delivered to Soergels for pickup as long as it is a delivery day. Soergels also carries every one of our dry mixes.
We have partnered with Lucci's Pizza (right accross the street and down the block from Gluuteny) to bring fresh, gluten-free pizzas to the community. You may be thinking, "But Gluuteny, don't you already make your own pizzas? Why sell the crusts to a competitor right accross the street?" The answer is that our pizzas are also soy free, dairy free, and vegan. So, if you want a GF pizza with real cheese and all the meaty toppings, Lucci's is the place to go. They also have a dining area and serve GF beer to go along with your pizza!
If you are a part of the CMU community, look for our chocolate chip cookies, cranberry walnut cookies, double chocolate chip cookies, brownies, baking mixes, and white or flax buns on campus. Don't hesitate to order a hamburger if you are gluten free, simply ask for it on a Gluuteny bun!
All four of the Pittsburgh Market Districts (Shadyside, South Hills Village, Robinson Towne Center, and Pine Township) carry Gluuteny's basic flour, apple strudel cake mix, brownie mix, chocolate chip cookie mix, pie crust mix, pizza dough mix, pumpkin bread mix, and sugar cookie mix.
Pick up a gluten free snack while sipping on the best freshly steeped tea in the city (or coffee). Sure, they're right accross the street from us, but what if we are closed? Te Cafe is open late ;) 412-422-8888
We are now working with Wheel Deliver to get our cakes, platters, and other baked goods delivered right to your door. There is a flat delivery charge of $10. You can arrange the details and complete the entire transaction over the phone by calling Gluuteny 412-521-4890.

We are a neat little bakery that squeezed ourselves into a spot in the Squirrel Hill business district back in 2007. Though we specialize in gluten and casein free foods, we're willing to bet you'd never know by the look, feel, smell, and taste of it! We consider our baked goods to be some of the best around and offer free samples daily to prove it! Nothing makes us happier than to see our pastries brighten up the face of someone who just said, "No, that's okay... I don't have to eat this stuff." Well, Mr. Non-believer, now you do. Because you can never go back to "regular" brownies after you've had one of ours!
Everything we bake is made in house and from scratch every day. Our bakers wake up super early to make sure that you are getting the freshest product every time. If you come in right when we open, it's pretty much a sure bet that something is still hot from the oven. That said, be sure that you place orders for anything special so we don't run out before you get here (Our bakers also leave super early relative to normal people)!
Our staff here all works together to make sure that you have a great experience each time you come back. We love taking special orders, so don't hesitate to call ahead if you need to plan a party or you just want to make sure we don't sell out of the chocolate cream filled cupcakes with chocolate ganache before you get here. We don't mind going the extra mile if it will make your smile a little brighter, so go ahead and ask for that crispy corner or gooey middle piece of the brownie selection or the sugar cookie with the least or most icing!
Our bakery is alive and growing. We have kept some of the same menu items that we opened with in 2007, such as moist pumpkin loaf and cinnamon swirl coffee cake, created variations on some classics, like adding the deluxe brownies and snickerdoodles, updated some recipes to make them better, such as the now chewier chocolate chip cookies, and added some alltogether new products, such as the pizza pockets and peanut-butter cookies. We will continue to be creative and expand our menu for as long as our delightful customers continue to inspire us! If you have a great idea for a new item let us know, because after all, we do it all for you.
Since we are a specialty bakery we have customers from all over the country. So if you live out of state, we created dry baking mixes just for you so that you can have the fresh smell and taste of Gluuteny right in your own kitchen! Each bag is hand-scooped from the same dry mix we use to bake fresh goodies in house every day. Nothing is better than seeing the smile on the faces of loved ones when they walk into the wafting scent of chocolate chip cookies coming out of the oven!
In addition to the dry mixes, we also ship almost all of our fresh baked goods anywhere in the World. To place an order visit our online storeor give us a call at 412.521.4890 if you wish to do the entire order over the phone.
The best bakery in town just happens to be gluten and casein free!

In 2005 one little girl was diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and her parents were told there wasn't much they could do. Mom didn't settle for that answer and after painstaking research and consultations, she found that her daughter could benefit from completely changing her diet (gluten and casein free). It wasn't easy and the gf/cf goods on the market tasted nothing like their counterparts. So Mom set to work, baking at home and perfecting breads, cookies, brownies, cakes, and everything else that kids love to eat. They were so good she had to share!
Founder- Mojca Pipus
UPDATE: While there is no scientific evidence proving that the gluten and casein free diet benefits ASD, we are happy to announce that in 2008 Ilana had her ASD diagnosis removed and today she is a happy and healthy 9 year old.
Gluuteny is currently run by the general manger and resident pastry chef, Jessica Lehman. Jessica started at Gluuteny as a baker back in 2007, just as the company was getting ready to open its doors for the first time. She attened PA Culinary, a Le Cordon Bleu school, in 2008, working towards a degree in patisserie. She then left Gluuteny to complete her externship at the Ritz Carlton's flagship property- The Beach Resort in Naples, Florida. After completing her externship Jessica graduated as a valedictorian and only recipient of the Brillat Savarin Young Professional Award.
Jessica was then offered a full time position at the Ritz, which she accepted. After 14 months of the beach, Jessica decided to move back to Pittsburgh where once again she met with Mojca and Gluuteny. In 2011 she would rejoin the company, this time as the GM and resident pastry chef.
With the same core values in mind, Jessica has been expanding the company through both the menu offering and reach in the community. You will now see vegan and nut free options on the menu and find Gluuteny's products all around the city of Pittsburgh.
All of our products are guaranteed to be gluten-free (wheat-free) and casein-free (dairy-free). We are a dedicated GF/CF facility which means we do not even bring any gluten or casein-containing products into the building. Ever. All of the equipment we use was purchased brand new to ensure that no cross contamination could have occured. We have been this way since our opening in 2007. Most of our products contain eggs and/or soy. Please view our allergy chart for further details.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley.
What is casein?
Casein is a milk protein found in all dairy products.
Why are you gluten and casein free?
More and more people are finding out that they are either allergic to gluten, gluten intolerant, have celiac disease, or find that they have a condition (such as autism) that can greatly benefit from the gluten and casein free diet. Read about our story for a great example of this.
What does it mean to be gluten free?
We compiled all the information you will need to eat GF in this handy handout!
What do you use instead of wheat flour?
We created our very own flour mixture made up of rice flour, tapioca starch, corn starch, potato starch, and xanthan gum. The same basic flour ingredients are used in all of our products and you can even buy a bag of it from us here. We hand scoop every bag and it already has the xanthan gum added (most GF flours require that you purchase that seperately).
What do you use instead of milk, cheese, and butter?
We use almond milk, Daiya brand imitation cheeses, Tofutti brand imitation cream cheese, and margarine.
Dairy free... does that mean everything you make is vegan?
No. We do not and will not ever bring meat or dairy products into the bakery but we do use eggs. That said, we offer several vegan options such as chocolate cream filled cupcakes, white almond cupcakes, pizza pockets, and breads. We are always at work trying to make new vegan options, so check back often or sign up for our twitter, facebook, newletter, and blog for constant updates!
Do you have anything for diabetics?
We do not specialze in this area, but our breads are low in sugar and we make a completely sugar-free cherry tart that is gently sweetened with agave nectar.
What is the carb count or nutritional breakdown?
We have nutrition labels for all of our dry mixes and they can all be viewed in the shopping area of this website. Unfortunately, we do not have the breakdown yet for any of the fresh product, though we can tell you it is comparable to regular baked goods and breads. Our flour has a similar carb count to regular flour and our sweets have just as much sugar and fat as a regular bakery's would.
Are you a franchise?
Currently our Squirrel Hill location is the only location. However, we are looking into the possability of franchising. If you would like to own a gluuteny franchise, email us at
Where else can I buy Gluuteny products?
We are proud to say we have been slowly expanding our reach in the Pittsburgh area. For a complete list of where to find us, click here!
What happens when you overbake?
We loooove to bake and sometimes we bake too much. Sometimes we bake so much, we get to share our delicious creations with foodbanks around the city.
Are you hiring?
Maybe, we are always looking for great people : ) If you are interested in becoming a part of the Gluuteny team drop off or email your application. You can DL it here or pick one up at the shop. Even if we are not hiring, we will keep it on file for the future.
