Godfathers Pizza
0

9 posts in this topic

Not sure if this has been posted and forgive me if it has - but Godfathers Pizza now offers a gluten free pizza. It is frozen and they can bake it there (and I checked, they are aware of cross-contamination) but you can also take it home to bake. Went there last night and it's awesome! Pizza is the one food my 13 year old really misses - and so it's nice to have a restaurant that we can stop at to eat - KUDO's to Godfathers Pizza! $9.99 for a single topping 9" pizza - which I wish they would make them a little bigger - for a starving 13 year old growing boy that just isn't quite enough!!!!!

Do you know if you are a 'test market' or if they have rolled them out chain-wide? There was a post about 6 months ago, and I called my local Godfather's, but it was in the test markets only, so no gluten-free pizza for my dh.

I have been able to get gluten free pizzas at Godfathers in Iowa for a couple of years now. Not sure if this is the same as the frozen pizza the original poster mentioned, though.

Thanks for your response!

I called the local Godfather's after reading about things this summer, and they told me at that time the gluten-free pizza was a local test market item, but if successful, it would expand. I was hoping to hear it had succeeded.

From what they told me it was just a test market and only certain restaurants are trying this out - but i'm sure trying to support it- in the last 2 weeks I've bought 3 pizzas and they said they are selling a lot of them. What an awesome thing!!!! That's the worst part I have found of this disease is trying to eat out - cooking at home is no biggie but trying to find something for my 13 year old to eat when we are out and about it's so hard.

Here is an Email I got from God Fathers.

Dear Customers,

Thank you for your inquiry. We are equally excited about the gluten free pizza being offered at 108th and Maple St. in Omaha, Nebraska and our new test location at 802 N. Ankeny Blvd. in Ankeny, Iowa.

Currently we are testing the gluten free pizza at these two locations to ensure all safety precautions are met to prevent cross contamination operationally within the store. With the success of our test we will look for more corporate and franchise stores to sign aboard and join in the successful venture of offering the option of a gluten free pizza.

Both Corporate and Franchise locations will be responsible for agreeing to and meeting the guidelines that have been set by the Godfather

I wish they would offer gluten free pizza here. I guess I should not be so greedy, we have plenty of gluten free pizza options around. :P

    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)
