Godfathers

I don't know if this is national, but the Godfathers' Pizza in my town (Iowa City, IA) will make a gluten-free personal pizza for me if I give them 24 hours notice. Not too expensive; I think it was like $5.99, and hey! A pizza from a chain restaurant!

How did they manage it? Did you provide the flours, or did they?

They do--I have to tell them 24 hours in advance, so they can go out and buy the ingredients.

Wow... that is awesome. Can you post their address, phone # and maybe manager's name?? Maybe then we could ask our local Godfathers to call them! :) Hey, it might work!! Worth a try... :rolleyes:

I don't know the manager's name, but do ask for the manager--I talked to just a regular employee once who had no CLUE what I was talking about.

That's great they'll make a "customized" pizza just for you but I have one question. Do they prepare the dough in the same place they make the regular dough? If they do then there could be the potential for cross contamination.

There is one 35 miles away from my house. I should call them and see what their policy is on gluten free pizza. They should make a chain that is only gluten free so there is not cross contamination and so forth.

WOW! My husband is a manger for Domino's. I've known a lot of managers... from all the pizza chains.... This one must have someone in the family with celiac disease. That's incredible that they would do that!! I would suspect this is a manager thing, and not a nationwide Godfather's pizza thing. Curious to see if anyone has results with any other stores.

Yea--I, too, doubt it's nationwide...but you could probably visit a lot of pizza chains and see which ones would do something for you......

    • Personally, I would ask for the full Celiac panel and see what that shows.  I mean, the full Monty, not just cherry picking testing.  On the full panel, if the tTg and the EMA come back positive, that is a diagnosis without biopsy.  This is how I was diagnosed and there is absolutely no doubt I have Celiac.  I presented with classic celiac so it was a no brainer with my blood results. If you cannot stick to the diet religiously, without cheating, unless you have a biopsy picture, then I would go on to have a biopsy.  Like your daughter, I was way too sick to have one done at the time.  They would not have agreed to use sedation because I was so anemic and malnourished and that ended that!  Good luck with whatever you decide!
    • This Asian-style barbeque chicken makes a great summer treat. Barbecue chicken is a perennial summer favorite around these parts, and this recipe delivers barbecue chicken with a decidedly Asian flare. View the full article
    • And as for the green stools, you said you eat a lot of kale and spinach?  A generous, daily diet of kale and spinach will be reflected in the bathroom.  You are what you eat.  
    • I just traveled three weeks this summer in Europe (Eastern).  Do not trust that the airlines will remember to load a gluten-free meal for you.  There is a 50-50 chance that they will not (in my experience).  We packed ONLY carry on.  Still found plenty of room to stash some emergency food.  You should be able to find food within an International airport.  Chips and typical junk food clearly labeled, even fruit.  Print or load Celiac travel cards with you in all the languages you will need.  They are free.  Google it.  Found these handy (not only in restaurants) but in the markets when we could not read labels but the staff could read them and Help us to make gluten-free choices.  amazing how you can communicate without knowing the language.  A few words like "thank you" in their language go along way (so does Google Translator).  Never met anyone who was not willing to help.   I carry a collapsible cooler that I pack with food and bags of ice to eat on then plane or right at my arrival or connection.  I take extra zip lock baggies with me.  Sometimes TSA will let you through if the ice is still hard (not melting).  Some will make you toss them then I just ask a restaurant to refill my ziplock baggies after passing Security.   I also carry a doctor's letter on my phone to show I am celiac, but no one has ever asked for me to present it.   Even though I carry a "third" piece of luggage on board, I have not been stopped.  Both that and my day backpack fit under the seat.  I use this cooler as needed through our trips.  If not, it fits in my backpack.  
    • Welcome, Kierra. You're only 15 so you need to make sure your parents are 100% aware of your medical issues so that they can advocate for you. It may or may not be celiac, but the only way to find out is to start with a full celiac blood panel, then an endoscope if necessary. However, for the tests to be accurate, you must consume gluten on a daily basis.
