Petition For Pizza Hut
0

8 posts in this topic

Hey, I am going to start a petition to try and get Pizza Hut to begin serving gluten free pizzas. I know it probably won't make a difference, but it's worth a try. I'm composing what the petition will say right now. I would appreciate input on what to add and take out. Thanks :)

So far I have this:

We, the undersigned, would like Pizza Hut provide gluten free pizza for the people who are unable to eat gluten, due to Celiac Disease or other causes.

Pizza Hut would bring in more business if they did begin providing gluten free pizza, because it would draw people with allergies to gluten since not alot of pizza places provide gluten free pizza.

Some of the godfathers have gluten-free pizza. It's made in a gluten-free facility and wrapped, frozen & shipped to the store. They have special pans & utensils. It's ok not great. But sometimes it's good to be able to order pizza. I wouldn't feel safe with gluten-free pizza from Pizza Hut unless it's done like that. Might want to add something about be careful not to cc.

Eating pizza that came out of a kitchen where flour is just flung about willy nilly? No, thanks, but good luck. :)

Homemade pizza = much healthier and much yummier. No fear of cross contamination or greasy fingers.

You can use the gluten free Bisquick. The pizza crust recipe is on the back. It's really good. Add your cheese, Hormel pep. and veggies and you are all set!

Pizza hut "gluten free" would scare me. I would never order it.

Can you recommend any recipes for a homemade pizza ? I have always wanted to try to make pizza :D

With the right approach, it is possible. Here where I live (Ontario, Canada) there are at least three major pizza chains now offering a gluten-free option.

Pizza Pizza was the first, and they worked with the Canadian Celiac Association to develop safe practices. The crusts are shipped to the location pre-made in one size only (medium), and special processes, along with dedicated baking pans and color-codes distinct utensils (they're bright red), minimize the cc risk. I have had them on several occasions with no problems. The first time I went and watched the process from the counter.

Pizza Nova also now has a gluten-free medium crust, but I haven't tried it.

Boston Pizza offers gluten-free individual pizzas at all locations. They use Kinnikinnick crusts. We've been twice and had a good experience both times.

You need to also watch the toppings. Most are gluten-free, but a few aren't. Boston Pizza marks the gluten-free ones with an asterisk on the menu. Pizza Pizza and Pizza Nova have allergen info online and in-store.

I'd feel safe eating it.

So, for those who also would like gluten free pizza at Pizza Hut, what suggestions/comments do you have?

My local bar/restaurant gets Gluten Free Pantry Pizza and French Bread mix. I havent bothered since there is so good! But I have seen the mix all over the place. This was the first thing I had in a restaurant, 2 days after going gluten-free. I was sold immediately! :D

    • 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!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
