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 already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
