Borriello Brothers Gluten Free Pizza
0

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone had the gluten free pizza at Borriello Brothers?  If so, how was it?  Is it safe?  It's only been a week since my diagnosis, but my family does pizza/movie night on Fridays and I really want to be able to do this with my kids.

 

Any help is appreciated!

I looked them up and they are in Colorado.  There are lots of gluten-free choices in Colorado.  Beau Jos is a good one.  You should call them when they aren't busy and a manger might be there - like 11 a.m.  Ask them if they use fresh toppings.  The biggest problem with gluten-free pizzas is that they use the same cheese, sauce, etc.   They smooth out a crust and put that hand in the cheese, use the ladle for the sauce and use it to spread the sauce, etc.  

 

One thing we did when I first went gluten-free was to buy frozen gluten-free pizza crusts - I would make my own and let them get something else.  Or make them for all of us.  You can put whatever you like on yours that way.  It is easy and quick.

 

You might Google Celiac support Groups and your City name.  I bet there is a big one in Denver and they might have a list of places to eat.

Did not see this on their website on first look.  I would  eat this!  I'm looking to see where all the locations are.  Hoping for Breck or Vail Or Dillon or Frisco!

 

 

 

"Borriello Brothers Real NY Pizza uses a 10" gluten free crust with sauce, cheese, and toppings that are separated from the regular pizza assembly area.  The pizzas are also cooked in a separate oven from the regular pizzas.  We do our best to prevent cross-contamination, but our kitchens are a high gluten environment.  Those who are extremely sensitive to gluten should use caution when ordering."

Looks like a place I would try.  If you have kids, a make your own pizza night would probably be a hit.  Let them make smiley faces with hormel pepperoni, etc.

Thanks Laura! Do you make your own pizza? If so, do you use a mix for the dough or make from scratch? I like the idea of it but not sure where to start.

I would say the least weird one to start with, and my favorite, is Chebe.  It is a box mix, usually 3-4 dollars, and makes two 11 inch pizzas or one 14 inch pizza.  It calls for an egg, a little oil, milk, and a cup of shredded cheese-I use parmesean.  It isn't sticky like some of the other gluten-free pizza crust mixes, and you actually do knead it a little.  It is mostly tapioca starch.  Makes a nice thin crust, and I prebake it before adding toppings.  It doesn't use yeast, so it is faster and easier than some other mixes.  It tastes like regular pizza.  You can also find some gluten-free pizza crusts in the freezer section of the store, there are a couple different ones out there, but I never cared for any of them.

 

For sauce I use classico pizza sauce, says gluten-free on the back and perfect for two pizzas.  Hormel pepperoni is gluten-free (also says on the package so no guesswork) and you can go crumbled sausage or bacon, too.  And of course, veggies- nom nom!  If you do pineapple on the pizza, squeeze as much liquid out as you can so it doesn't make the pizza soggy.

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
