Welcome! It does get easier.

i almost fainted the other day when i realized that vinager had wheat!!.....good grief

I will start by responding to that one piece. Vinegar is gluten-free, except for malt vinegar (which is always labeled as that: malt vinegar). All other forms of vinegar are safe.

You can always contact the company if you have any questions about any of their products.

 

However, with that disclaimer, I wouldn't eat it.

Here is a website that may be of help in finding places to treat your son to.  There are many places that cater to pizza lovers but personally, Dominio's is not one of them.  Cross contamination is a huge problem there.  I would also recommend limiting his intake of food not made at home.  He won't heal if he goes out to eat too much but you can certainly treat him every now and again.  Also, pizza dough can be made at home and then he can enjoy it without taking a hit.

 

I am not sure about the cereal but there are good gluten-free cereals he may like. EnviroKidz is a brand that has cereal for kids......Captain Crunch type cereal with peanut butter flavor and I think they do a Rice Krispie type also.  There are many so I'm sure you'll find one he likes.

 

http://www.glutenfreeregistry.com/  This site lists by state restaurants and cafe's, etc. where gluten-free food is served or accommodated for.

Domino's has a disclaimer on their own site saying that celiacs shouldn't eat their pizza. I wouldn't eat it and I certainly wouldn't feed it to a child.

 

This will get easier, it just takes time. You'll either be able to learn to make pizza at home from scratch (which is what most people around here do from what I see) or you can buy something like crusts from Venice Bakery (have to buy online, this is what I do) and top the pizzas at home. This will  prevent possible contamination and keep your son healthy in terms of the gluten free side. I know that kids, especially picky eaters are difficult and that his health problems pose an additional difficulty but maybe try checking out websites for how to sneak veggies into foods for toddlers and picky kids. You will have to get his food choices branched out if you want a healthy son.

Dominos gluten-free pizza is made on the same screens as the gluten-filled pizza. They won't even clean it to make a "gluten free" pizza. Also, when they add toppings, they touch gluten, and then touch the toppings. So most of the toppings are cross contaminated as well (at least here where I live- I have called & asked about it). I wouldn't get that pizza for sure!

Eating out takes some finesse & often is best to take something along if possible. Realize your son has definite likes & this is going to be part of your challenge. I realize he's likely honed in to various things due to texture, taste, temperature & other sensory "cues" that are comfortable for him. However, you want to make pizza at home for your son, check out Senza brand as it's free of many of the major allergens & produced in a dedicated facility: http://www.senzaglutine-glutenfree.com .  Senza as well as Conte's (http://www.contespas...m/specialty.htm) also has frozen raviolis available. You can e-mail either & they are kind as well as helpful with any questions you might have.  Both Senza & Conte's also sell in a few retail stores (check with co. for possible retailers in your area).  You also can shop with Senza online with free shipping.  Bob's Red Mill or Pamela's brands have pizza mixes & if you go to www.vitacost.com you can check out some of the major gluten-free company products. You can check out the ingredient lists as well as read reviews of the products that might help you get started.  I have no interest in any of these companies or products... it's just my "go to" ideas I've developed for myself. ;) Hope this helps in some small way.

Hey philly'smom!

 

It seems overwhelming at first, but it gets easier, I promise.

 

I know some celiacs eat the gluten-free Chex cereals: chocolate, cinnamon, etc.

 

May I suggest the Newbie 101 thread in the Coping section to get you started?

 

And a good book for you to read is Real Life with Celiac Disease by Melinda Dennis and David Leffler 

It has sections about the disease, the diet, helping your celiac child, etc.

 

 

http://glutenfreehel...-m-s-r-d-l-d-n/

 

 

Find Me Gluten Free is also a website that lists restaurants that others have tried. 

 

Perhaps his tastes will expand as he starts to heal his gut and feels better. 

Best wishes to you and Philip!

You can gluten-free pizza at Z-Pizza also.  Chex cereals are gluten-free and so are Pebbles.  I think Rice Krispies are gluten-free now too.  They should be marked gluten-free on the box.  Gorilla Munch is another gluten-free cereal.  And there are others too.  Check the  local health food or organic grocers gluten-free section.

 

Most of the food he eats should be at home and cooked there, not processed foods though.  You get a lot of fillers, food colorings, preservatives and stuff with your food when you buy processed foods.  Those may not be good for him, or you.

 

A simple whole foods diet is the best for starting out gluten-free.  And it is the easiest way to know what is in the food you are eating.  Some celiacs develop additional food intolerances beyond wheat, rye, and barley.  Oats are a known reactor for 10% or so.  They can cause the same auto-immune response.  Other foods that people react to are soy, dairy, corn, nightshades, eggs etc.  Cutting out soy would be a good idea IMHO.  An elimination diet is a good way to find out if a food is causing a problem.  GFCFSF is a pretty well known diet for autisim.  It may help him toot, it's hard to tell without trying.

I don't know where you guys live but in the UK Domino's is very coeliac-aware! They use separate screens for the pizzas, which are kept sealed and away from the other pizzas. They don't use any wheat flour on premesis, use separate sauces and utensils and have one dedicated staff member to each pizza.
Then again, I've only had one domino's pizza since going gluten-free and did get quite a bad stomach-ache...although I think that may have been the cheese :P

In the US, Dominos came out and said that the gluten-free pizza is not suitable for Celiacs.

There are two versions. The original Rice Krispies still have gluten. The new gluten-free version is made from brown rice and is clearly marked "gluten-free."

Udi's makes a frozen gluten-free pizza crust too.

 

Philly'sMom, why don't you list his six foods for us so we can help you find substitutes for all of them?

 

I'm sure you have him on a multi-vitamin, but if not, he will need one. And you need to check to make sure that, and all other medications he might take are gluten-free.

 

For the pizza, maybe you can run some good veggies through the food processor and add them to the sauce so he won't be able to see or even taste them. Heck, *I* don't like veggies very much but I don't mind them that way. :)

I didn't have a lot of hope that I'd like this recipe for pizza crust but I was wrong, I loved it and so did my super picky husband that is NOT Gluten Free. I just had to share this with you. I promise you, it is amazing and you can read the comments of others on this link too.

I was told by the company that ONLY the 'Brown Rice' Rice Krispies are truly Gluten free.
