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.

Sorry, you had to find out the hard way!  Thanks for reporting this.  It may help someone else!  Feel better soon!

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!

    • Tell your medical doctor that you want a full Celiac panel before you go gluten-free.  A family history of Celiac should be enough reason to run one every couple of years.  The stool tests aren't considered medically valid, so they probably won't accept those.  It would be good to know if you actually have Celiac.  That would tell you how careful you have to be with gluten consumption.  If you don't have Celiac, it will make your life easier...you can still be gluten-free but you might be able to do things like take a burger off a bun and eat at most restaurants safely.
    • Sure, if you are feeling better from the Celiac, now you might notice other things you didn't before.     a very real possibility is that you have changed your diet and are now eating something you didn't eat much of before.  Or you are eating larger or smaller amounts of protein or fiber....that sort of thing
    • This board is quite old but I'm hoping someone can continue on this topic. I am 61 years old and in all my life and doctors' visits, I have never had a western doctor ask me if I have a family history of celiac or suggest a gluten free diet. In all honesty, I have only started having what could be considered "gluten sensitive" symptoms within the past 2 years - chronic, unexplained bouts of diarrhea, mainly. Although bloodwork has shown in the past 2 years I now have high cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and a bone density scan showed osteopenia. My PCP put me on meds for everything, of course. I recently began seeing a naturopath - and when I was running down my health history and list of symptoms she immediately asked about the family history of celiac. My father was positively diagnosed, through biopsy, with celiac sprue about 25 years ago, when nobody talked about gluten sensitivity. Anyway, she had me do the full panel testing at Enterolab. I have one celiac gene and a gene that indicates neurological manifestations of gluten sensitivity (I have long been plagued with panic attacks and depression). I also showed extremely high (215 units, below 10 is normal) for fecal anti-gliadin and varying high results for dairy, eggs and soy. My fat malabsorption stool test also tested high (431 units and normal is less than 300). The interpretation from Enterolab and my naturopath both strongly advised I eliminate gluten from my diet for the rest of my life. Naturopath said after a year or two I may be able to try introducing limited dairy, eggs and soy back; but not until the glutin response is completely under control. I am really struggling with this. Everyone I've talked to (including adult children, spouse, other family members, friends) is skeptical about me making such a radical change in my (our) diets based on these results. They seem to view gluten sensitivity as a "fad" and think I am going off the deep end. "Get a second opinion" - or "talk to your PCP about it". I've read enough to know that my PCP will not be of much help. And since I really only had one irritating symptom that could be related to gluten sensitivity, it's not like my life will be radically improved by going gluten free. I guess I could choose to ignore the test results - for now. I'm trying to view going gluten, dairy, egg and soy free as preventative and something that will contribute to a healthier life as I age. But it's so hard ... especially when the people who mean the most to me think I'm over-reacting and kind of cuckoo. Can anyone help me out here? I feel so alone ...  
    • Hello everybody, I'm new to the forum but am so happy to have found somewhere where people living with coeliac can share their thoughts! I've only been gluten-free for two weeks.  About three days in, I started experiencing awful heartburn which hasnt let up and I'm wondering if anyone else had this after giving up gluten? It wasn't a typical symptom for me before so feeling very uncomfortable.  I am not due to see my gastro consultant again until December and my GP (who was about as helpful as a chocolate teapot!) just gave me lansoprazole (its a PPI) which isnt even touching it.  Just wondering if giving up gluten is unmasking other symptoms or if this is a normal or common withdrawal effect?  I feel like burping/belching could help but its something I've never been able to physically do. Im in my early 30s so hoping its not another thing... Any advice would be appreciated A
    • O sorry. Negative biopsy. But this was months ago but i have no energy. My teeth are rotting i feel sick all the time. And i was told by someone who has celiac that it can also be difficult to have a diagnosis cause you would have to eat 6 pieces of bread for 6 weeks in order to get a proper diagnosis. And i just know that something is up
