Papa John's

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.

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.

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy. View the full article
    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
