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

The original version still contains gluten. The brown rice version is new and is clearly marked gluten-free on the front of the box.

well, we are one week and one day into this crazy gluten-free journey! (my 12 year old son, philip, was just diagnosised last friday).......he's SUPER picky eater (he has down syndrome.....have worked in therapy since age 2 on trying to get him to eat new foods).....he eats about 6 different foods.......anyway, pizza is his main staple food (well, at least it was a week ago).......we had a special olympics basketball tournament today and i got him a dominos pizza!.....he of course inhaled it like it was mana from God (lol!)........i have read many negative things about this pizza (cross contamination)........was i a horrible mom for giving this to him today? and does anyone know anything about "cookie crisp" cereal?? (another one of the big 6 that philly will eat).......now the label doesn't have any wheat products, but at the bottom it says "may contain wheat products".......should this be a no-no, too???.................my head is spinning at all of this!.......i almost fainted the other day when i realized that vinager had wheat!!.....good grief........i pray that this gets easier......


I don't recommend Dominos I walking in one day craving pizza and asked about their gluten free crust and they pretty much told me to go somewhere else (at least they didn't sell it to me anyways and make me sick) I don't know why they offer gluten free when they can't with a clear conscience sell it!! Of course your not a horrible mother for giving him what you thought to be gluten free pizza! Hang in there things will get easier there is a light at the end of the gluten free tunnel, a lot of restaurants are trying to incorporate gluten free menu items pizza places included.

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.

 
Is Captain Crunch gluten-free?  I nearly did myself in the other day.  Bought it, ate it then began itching all over.  Gluten isn't a problem for me but oats are.  Daugher picked up the box and read, "Corn and oats..."  And I was like...  No, no, no!  It's just corn.  Right?  Wrong.  That was why I itched.  I do remember eating it.  She was on a gluten-free diet at the time and she ate it too.  Could it be that it used to be just corn?  I don't know.

With cereals that aren't marked gluten free even if they don't contain any obvious gluten ingredients, I always assume they are made on shared equipment.

The Dominos gluten free pizza gives me a bigger reaction than eating wheat itself.. I don't know why, I've tried looking through the ingredients in the base and it made my head spin the amount of crap that's in it lol.

I eat this pizza without reaction a few times a month. I usually ask for no sauce and extra cheese and some veggies. Since I don't know whats in the meats they are using I don't bother. I think it depends on the store manager and the processes they go through. You may want to go in there and talk to the manager about how its prepared to get a better insight on if there will be cross contamination. The disclaimer on the website is to protect against lawsuits mainly and I think a lot of companies do this for liability purposes. Its easier to protect yourself with a disclaimer than to have one employee not follow the rules and get sued for misinfomation...

If you had been on here when this new pizza came out, you would have seen that Dominos announced that it is not for Celiacs.   And all the fuss that went with it!  :blink:

 

 You may be lucky and  have a store that will be careful, use fresh cutting tools & toppings from the fridge, etc.

Sorry, I wasn't aware, but still the safest bet would be to actually talk to the Manager face to face. If you show a concern, they may be able to change the processes at that location (not all locations are corporate owned and have more freedom as far as what they can and can't do in that store). A lot of cross contamination issues can be resolved by simply explaining it to the Managers of the restaurants. I am the Property Manager of a very large shopping mall and after moving to a rural town, they had no idea what gluten is. Once I talked to the managers face to face they were much more accomodating when I came in for a business lunch and asked for something gluten-free.

I think this is an excellent point. I don't see why Domino's can't at least make an effort to minimize cross contamination risk by changing aprons/gloves, using fresh utensils, and fresh toppings from the cooler. Seems like that would be a good business move. You could still give the disclaimer, but it would open up the market to more people.

I feel they should make the effort not only for us that need to feel safe from CC but because they carry gluten-free crust that is just sitting there not making money if they can't safely sell it.

While I do agree ith you that talking to the manager may be helpful, I'm not sure that I would trust the employees to follow through. To many things are to big of a hassle for some people. Just my .02 worth.

phillysmom, I feel your pain.  My son is 11 and has apraxia with many texture issues.  He only eats a handful of foods as well... not a fruit, not a veggie, his only meat is chicken in nugget form from certain companies...it goes on and on.  Try your best to find a suitable substitute for his regulars.  It will get easier once you can get him to eat a pizza that you have made.  The Chuck E Cheese by us has a gluten free pizza that is made in a gluten free facility and shipped to them in an individual baking bag.  The staff takes the sealed pizza from the freezer, puts it in the oven and then brings it out to you still sealed in it's bag.  They bring a sealed disposable pizza cutter for you to use after you open the pizza.  You can only get a cheese pizza and it is only offered in an individual size but this might be an option for you.

As tough as this is now, it's going to keep on getting tougher for a little while, but you can get through this in baby steps. Do not eat out. Period. Not until you're a few months in and have got more of this sorted out. I'm only 5-6 months in w my daughter and we are still learning. Read everything in the newbie forum. Find the Perdue gluten free chicken tenders, udis chocolate chip cookies, and whatever other gluten-free treats he will eat. Amazingly, once he starts feeling better its likely that he will be more willing to try new foods. Come here for support and don't beat yourself up when he has a bad day.

Hi there.. I think the most important issue here is for you to not be too hard on yourself! There is so much to learn but you will learn it. I made choices in the beginning that I would not make now. That comes with knowledge.
Cross contamination is a big one for me. My friends can't understand why I won't go eat at a restuarant that has a gluten free menu. They think I am too paranoid. However, 9 times out of 10, I leave knowing I rec'd traces of gluten. They go back to their lives and I go to bed.
I live in Portland OR and we have many grocery stores that cater to healthier foods. These stores carry gluten free pizza and other rare products. Even my grocery chain has gluten free pizza crust so that all you have to do is throw on your topics of choice.
Hang in there! It really does get easier. However, I must admit that it has been life altering in many, many positive ways and a few not so positive. Eating out with friends on the spur of the moment is only a memory. :)

I had the same problem.  My son did eat one of those pizzas and woke up irritable and his stomach hurt.  I immediately went to their corporate web site and complained.  This afternoon the manager of the local store called me.  It was a great call.  He assured me that he would do everything in his power to make sure that the gluten free pizzas that they sell are just that.  Cross contamination is a big problem.  He said their crust comes in already pre-made.  He thinks that maybe the screens they bake them on is the problem or even the cutter.  He promised to purchase screens for only the gluten free pizzas and suggested telling them to not cut the pizza, just to cut them myself.  I felt really good about the call.  He seemed to really care and want to work with me.  I suggest calling your local Dominoes and speaking with the manager.  Explain the problem and hopefully he will work with you also.  My son was diagnosed a month ago.  I hope this helped.
