Pizza Pizza Experiences?

5 posts in this topic

The chain Pizza Pizza has just made the move to my area in Vancouver. I got a flyer showing that they have gluten-free pizzas. I am tempted, but very worried about CC. I have read their website, says all employees are trained about CC. I also read some good and bad experiences on this board. All of the reviews were years old. Just wondering if anyone has tried them lately?

I eat them from time to time, with no problems. The crusts are pre-made and the store uses dedicated pans and cutters. The first time I walked in and watched while it was made. Now I just call ahead for pick up.

Hey :) I live in Burnaby and was thinking of trying them as well.

I've heard good things about them personally, they seem like a good place. Before I went gluten free I had their whole wheat crust and the gut rot was enough to tell me I had to go gluten free. That's when we saw they offered that option as well, so next time we order I'll try them out.

Here's my Pizza Pizza story!

My boyfriend and I drove across Canada, NB to Calgary, it was going to take us five days, so we didn't want to stop a whole lot or go out of the way and sight see. But, I had researched before hand and heard about these guys having gluten-free pizza, at least in Eastern Canada. So, we're driving along, starting to think about dinner when we pass this little hole-in-the-wall pizza pizza beside a gas station in Ontario. I thought for sure they'd be too small to bother carrying the gluten-free pizza, but we go in to check. They carried it, they didn't charge extra, and it was the first time I had pizza in about six months at that point. I was so excited I took a picture. It was awesome.

We only seem to have Pizza Pizza's in our movie theatres in Calgary, and they don't have the gluten-free pizza. But, Boston Pizza is also carrying gluten-free individual pizzas now, there's a thread about it already! It's very good. The Pizza Pizza's one was pretty good, kind of on the crunchy side, which I prefer mine kinda doughey. I still regard them as an awesome memory.

The fact that they have a gluten free option is so awesome. I find it tastes best when it's fresh. If you leave it in the fridge and re heat it, I don't think it's as good. The Pizza Pizza's around here that I've eaten at are good about cross contamination as long as the cooks are education. However, some of the Boston Pizza (which also have good gluten free pizza) have gotten in trouble for cross contamination.

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • 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!
