The Pie

5 posts in this topic

So we finally went to The Pie today. The Pie is a local pizza chain in the Salt Lake City area. Three of their restaurants have separate gluten free kitchens with specific practices in place to nearly eliminate the possibility of cross contamination. We went to the South Jordan location.

 

I did something I've never done before. After reading everything I had about them on their website, I simply went to the counter and ordered my pizza. I didn't quiz them or grill them, she wasn't going to tell me anything I didn't already read online about their practices. Besides, if everything was truly true, this place would be truly safe and there would be no need to turn ordering a pizza into the Spanish Inquisition. So we each ordered a pizza, I ordered a gluten free veggie pizza ($18.99 for a 14" which seems fair) and my husband ordered a regular pepperoni pizza.

 

They didn't get done at the same time. They called our name to let us know a pizza was ready, the first one was his. It was ooey gooey with cheese covering the pepperoni. He said it was a good pizza and enjoyed it. So check, our gluten eaters will enjoy their pizza there.

 

Then they called again and my pizza was ready. The gluten free pizza is a thin crust, which I expected before I even made plans to go there. It only comes in a 14" which is fine, I didn't expect a size choice. (I suppose we never can.) At least it isn't a personal size for the first time ever in a year and a half of ordering pizzas. It had fresh Spinach, artichoke hearts, sicilian spiced tomatoes, red onions, feta cheese, and mozzarella cheese and it was piled on. I could barely figure out how to pick up a slice, instead of the barely there topping I've gotten used to. The crust was crispy and delicious with no weird texture or taste. The toppings were perfect and ridiculously plentiful, in fact when I saw them it made the $20 sticker shock go away. It was so amazingly delicious I nearly wept with joy.

 

Enough time has passed that if I was going to get sick, I would have by now. Which means that without nonsense, grilling or the Spanish Inquisition, I walked into a pizza place, ordered a pizza, and got one safely made. That's it. Just like it used to be. Not every topping is available, but enough are that I was more than satisfied with my choices. I can not recommend this place enough for people visiting the Salt Lake area. There are locations in Salt Lake, South Jordan and Ogden that have gluten free kitchens.

Wow!  Gosh what I would give to walk in a place and do exactly what you did.  Congrats on your pizza!  I am green with jealousy.

There are reasons I'll never leave this area. I know there are other gluten free havens. I just have no intentions of ever starting over learning. Hopefully if anyone ever visits here this will help point them to some safe and amazingly delicious pizza. There is a huge gluten-free expo in October so maybe this is just in time to help someone.

    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better. 
    • Ok guys!   The original post was 3 years ago!  Ingredients, manufacturing methods,  labeling, etc.  may have changed during that time.  A lot of companies have really come a long way on gluten-free in the last 3-4 years.
    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
