Extreme Pizza Chain Delivers Gluten Free Pizzas

9 posts in this topic

Check to see if this place delivers in your area. I couldn't believe I finally had a location near me that delivered gluten free pizzas! Their premade combos are hit or miss in terms of taste but I've found a few that are to die for! And I haven't tried them all yet.

For those that live in Dallas, I went to the one in Preston Shopping Center and the staff was very knowledgeable. One of the manager's wife has Celiac so he was very familiar with the process. It is so nice to go out for pizza! :)

I don't know how long they have been doing gluten free but I too was impressed with the one in Denver/Westminster. The shop has been there quite some time and when they opened they did not do gluten free. One day I just happened to be waiting for my husband nearby so while I waited I strolled down the street. I saw the big gluten free pizza sign in the window and went right in to check them out. I queried them about where the toppings came from since alot of unknowledgeable places will scoop them out of the same containers that they use when making regular pizza. The answer was the gluten free ones came right out of the freezer so no cross contamination with ones used for the regular pizza. I asked about the pans. They are dedicated. They said the only thing they share is the oven. I've eaten 6 of their pizzas now and not been glutened once!

Wow! Just looking at the website is making me hungry. Anyone tried the California Cactus or the Buffalo Chicken Pizzas in gluten free? They look wonderful. Pizza delivered again....I'm doing a happy dance! :)

Glad to hear about the Dallas location. We will have to check it out.

Haven't tried those two yet. My two favorites have been Peace in the Middle East (love the hummus for sauce) and Green with Envy (yummy pesto sauce). I thought Paia Pie and Drag it Through the Garden were bland. But Pandora's Box was yummy. For my taste their tomato sauce is a bit bland but if you order a combination that includes oregano and basil it makes it more tasty so if I order the Drag it Through the Garden or Paia Pie again I'm going to add those ingredients.

Good info. We'll have to go this weekend and I will have them add some herbs. I do not like bland sauce.

reading these posts scared me! i'm a very cautious celiac. even though the pans and ingredients might be seperated from the contaminated ingredients, if it is a pizza place that makes their own wheat dough, there will be flour EVERYWHERE!

whoops my post got cut off. as i was saying, flour everywhere! that stuff can stay in the air for up to 24 hours. i would not order or trust anything from a restaurant that offered anything where wheat flour is used. it's just not safe, or worth my health. you can easily make a quick and safe pizza at home!

I don't think they make their own dough on site as I saw no evidence of that when I was in there. I agree with you that if there was flour flying around then it couldn't possibly be safe. However, having had 6 pizzas with no reaction I'm a happy camper.

    • 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  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
