OK - I just noticed an advertisement for Papa John's linked on this site. Did I miss something? Are they carrying gluten-free pizza?

Not that I know of. A while back, we tried a letter-writing campaign to get them to offer a gluten-free crust, but they pretty much blew us off.

Godfathers and Happy Joe's offers a gluten-free pizza crust.

I'm wondering if we should target Papa Murphy's. After all they've been touting keeping their prices down since they don't have ovens, so not having the cost of a special oven might win them over.

Opinions?

They don't have ovens? How do they cook the pizza? Never heard of that brand.

I thought it was odd that a Papa John's ad was on this site. Maybe I was seeing things. LOL

I don't understand the way Internet ads work. I think they sometimes come on from other magical web places.

Papa Murphy is a take and bake at home place. The one by us does have an oven because they will bake them for you for and extra buck or two.

Some places do a take and bake. I can't personally see the appeal.

OK, just saw the Papa John's ad. That really seems in poor taste. Is Dunkin Donuts next? Why would they do that??

Websites owners or moderators can't choose the types of ads that appear on the site (except for ads from the site's sponsors). The ads aren't handpicked--basically whatever company (say, Google) provides the ads runs an automatic scan on the website and picks up words, and the ads get matched to that. They do that so the people who are on the website will see ads that might actually interest them, and click on them, and make money for the ad companies.

So a website that has the words "gluten" or "celiac" will get ads from gluten-free bakeries or companies, and multivitamins targeting Celiacs. But we also talk a lot of "pizza" and "cookies" and "bread," etc. and so you're bound to see a regular pizza ad on here every once in awhile. Sucks, but it will happen.

It IS gluten free, but it's only safe if you buy it at the grocery store in a nice vacuum-sealed bag. I went to a DD a few times after going gluten-free, only had the coffee, and couldn't figure out what was wrong ... until it dawned on me (duh) about all the flour in the air from their kitchen! And people who work the counter work in the kitchen too.

We went to a DD tonight to get some Baskin Robbins (pre-packed) ice cream (BR is attached to DD) and to my dismay, they have a CYA allergen warning on their ice cream, so I suffered through the visual display and smells of my favorite donuts for ice cream I can't even risk eating.
