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

Thank you so much for posting that e-mail, it was just what I wanted to see! Hopefully DH will be able to have gluten-free Godfather's soon!

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

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard and taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a disc with records to me, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten. He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
