WAUKESHA — After losing its commercial kitchen space when Easter Seals shuttered its 505 Northview Road location, Boombalatti’s Pizza Company is back in business.

Now renting kitchen space at 290 W. Main St. — the home of Chef Pam’s Kitchen — the take-and-bake pizza company, which specializes in gluten-free, low-carb pies, is taking orders once again, co-owner Laura Turk said Wednesday.

Turk, who started the business last spring with her husband Matt, said the idea was to provide a delicious pizza for diabetics, dieters, and others who have dietary restrictions that keep them from eating not only pizza with a traditional wheat-based gluten crust, but also prevent them from having pizzas that use rice-based or other doughs that aren’t low-carb.

The dough the Turks use in their pizzas contains almond flour, Laura Turk said. The couple started developing the niche pizza offerings after pursuing a low-carb diet a few years back. Laura later found that the new diet was the best way to treat her polycystic ovarian syndrome, so she knows how making key diet changes can help people lead happier, healthier lives.

Folks interested in trying out their pizzas can place their orders online at boombalattispizzaco.com. Pickups take place on Wednesday and Fridays at 290 W. Main St.
