Anyone Eaten Domino's Gluten-Free Pizza Recently?
0

18 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has tried the Dominoe's gluten-free pizza recently and if they got sick? Their menu has a bunch of disclaimers about cross contamination, so it makes me wonder if they just don't try. I'm not sure why you'd offer a gluten-free pizza if celiacs can't eat it (do they think it's trendy?), so maybe the disclaimer is just something the lawyers made them do?

You're right.  While we benefit from the gluten-free diet fad (lots of products), there are some downsides too (not taken seriously for example).  

 

All that wheat flour, spoons gliding over dough and being put back into the pizza sauce......I'm not convinced.  So, when my extended family orders in pizza, we pull out our frozen Udi's pizza from the freezer.  I make the salad and we all eat together.  Everyone gets pizza!

SUPER -Sensitive viewpoint which some may not share.

 

I believe they do not worry about cross contamination at all.  They don't put use wheat flour in their gluten free pizza recipe.  I believe that is all it means.  I think a pizza place is a place where flour is everywhere. Flour is in the air and on the work tables,  I would never eat there, but personally I have been banned by my doctor from eating outside of my own home. .

 

I make pizza at home with:

Nut crust

Mango sauce

Eggs and bacon topping.

There ARE some pizza places that do gluten-free right, but Domino's is not one of them. The gluten-free pizza place near me has a family member with celiac so they know about CC. They make their gluten-free pizza in a seperate room using seperate pans, utensils and sauce from a seperate pot.

 

The Udi's frozen pizza is good. Against the Grain makes a totally grain-free frozen pizza and that's what I buy. It's very good. I buy the cheese pizza and add my own gluten-free sausage. YUMMY!

Domino's does not do gluten free right, some do. That said, they also don't have flour in their stores. The CC is because they use entirely shared surfaces and toppings from the same bins for everything. The crust arrives gluten free, and from there stops because of handling. I've read the "celiacs shouldn't eat this" disclaimer on their website and would never consider eating it. I have a friend who eats it and is constantly sick still years after her diagnosis. She doesn't make good choices and will probably never be well and will eventually end up with addition AI issues or cancer because of it.

Desperatelady, your doc told you you could never eat out of your home? That's awfully harsh. Does that mean you can never take a vacation? Have dinner with at a friend's house? Traveling must be really difficult/impossible. Not to mention all the work of cooking every meal yourself. That seems like an impossible directive to follow.

Eating nothing that you didn't make yourself is a bit of a pain, but it's not that bad. When traveling, bring an electric skillet or a George Foreman grill. Most motel rooms have fridges and microwaves so it is easy to shop at a grocery or health food store in whatever town you're in and do your own cooking. And it's easy to eat at a friend's house. Just bring the food yourself! Friendship is about being together, not about food. I visit friends often and they all understand why I bring my own food. Enjoying each other's company is what it's all about.

I now have an oven in my car. We do not allow gluten in the car anymore.  I take an electric skillet to hotels and cook (where hopefully nobody else does) after carefully wiping  off the table surfaces.  . 

I  have developed a way to keep my food hot for (so far) up to 4 1/2 hours. My sweet potato was done to soft perfection after Tuesday's soccer game. It is difficult at family get togethers, but I will just have to eat on the way and talk while they eat.  Although It is sometimes difficult, it is necessary for me for NOW.  Hopefully, nobody else needs to follow this.  My doctors are hopeful that my body may settle down a bit in time.

 

One more thing, I am not sure that celiac is the only cause to the reactions I have.  They may not be a celiac symptom, but something else.  I can't say what, because I honestly don't know.

 

I guess when since I have 2 DQ2 and 2Dq8 genes and have undiagnosed celiac for 30 years, unusual means may be  necessary,  Hey, I am glad to be alive and so Much Better!  I wouldn't want to take chances.  I do not have to cook every meal as I have 8 family members in the house and many take turns at making meals.  One thing I fear is a hospital stay, so I am working on an early release and at home care.  Hopefully, it won't be needed.   

 

I have had reactions while trying to heat my own food in someone else's kitchen and that is the reason for the doctor's directive.  I haven't heard of anyone on the forum with such a directive for celiac.  Don't anyone worry too much.

HMM, after reading the title; the first thing crossing my mind would concern cross cantamination. I believe a big chain like Dominos having a true gluten-free menu is unpopular or "unmarketable"? I am not sure you would even want to consider eating there just for the fact they work aroung the pizza dough all day. This looks like a hit and miss for Dominos! I am a recent gluten-free member and I LOVE PIZZA. Now I have to consider eating a frozen $5 gluten-free pizza that is the size of an orange. LOL Eh, whatever. We can and have to adapt. Would you be able to shop around to see options for a frozen pizza?? I live in southern california and there is Wholefoods here. I would imagine there would be A TON of gluten-free replacemts for regular food. Do you have a specialty store like that?Maybe you can pick up a pizza there? Good luck!

Slightly tangential to the original topic, but you can make surprisingly good individual pizzas using frozen hash brown patties as "crust".  Bake as directed until crisp, then top and heat until the toppings are done.  You might need a fork to eat them, but it works.

I have no intention of ever trying the domino's gluten-free pizza.  I think it is insulting to people with food allergies to offer a false happiness-inducing offer, haha.  I HAVE had relatives and friends say "Oh we will just order you a gluten free pizza from dominos is that okay?"  

 

And I am like:

"NOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.............!!!!!"

 

Just like that, hehe.  There are a few sit down places I can get pizza in Fort Worth but no delivery.  Amys frozen gluten-free pizza is okay in a pinch, add your own toppings.  Sometimes I will let my husband order dominos whatever he wants and I will make my own pizza with tons of stuff he dislikes on it, and we are both happy.  I have tried Bobs red mill crust mix, pillsbury refrigerated dough, gluten-free bisquick made into a pan crust, Udis crusts, and liked them all.  Contes crust was okay but had an odd texture.  I tried one little personal sized glutino pizza and was gravely dissapointed.  :(  I used to eat dominos at least one night a week before my celiac diagnosis, so I guess the good thing is that is calories I am no longer consuming.

I have tried Dominos gluten free cheese pizza twice. The first time I had a small stomach ache which led to sleepiness, which led to a nap and acne breakout. All signs of gluten contamination for me!

I attempted the pizza for a second time, just to see if it was a fluke. Nope! 

If you are highly sensitive to gluten, do not order Dominos Pizza.

I second this! I found out about their pizza right before my doctor told me I have celiac, and I, too, made the mistake of ordering it. Misery ensued. I didn't feel right for days. Never doing this again. Darn them for getting my hopes up!

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
