So today Domino's unveiled their new gluten-free crust. So I called our manager and it is there! BUT...they use the same ovens and the same screens to bake them on. So really, they said it was more for people who have gluten-free sensitivity. : ( Another place in my town uses a totally different oven, utensils, and containers of cheese. They have it figured out! Too bad dominos didn't.

Wow, way to go out on a limb, boys.

They've admitted that it's not safe for Celiacs, and personally I wouldn't suggest that people with wheat allergies or gluten intolerance try it either. Honestly, I feel like they are exploiting the gluten-free diet fad that's getting a lot of publicity right now (Miley, Kim) and possibly trying to tap into the primal/paleo market as well. I guess some people will be happy with the product, but I know I certainly won't be trying it.

Frankly, I wouldn't eat a domino's pizza before DX. :huh:


But even if it were the only available gluten-free pizza on the planet, the CC issue makes it totally off limits to me.

Just using an alternative flour does not make it a safe "gluten free"
option.

People just do not seem to get that part.

Even though in this case it's limited and flawed, I'm always glad when a national chain at least tries to meet the needs of people on gluten free diets. Eating out is and easily being able to order off the menu is something that I really miss since my son has gone gluten free. My son is not celiac - he's I guess what you call gluten intolerant (he does fine with gluten as long as we limit how much and don't let him have it right after, but let him have it for several days in a row and we see major behavior changes) - so this might be an option for him. And at least they appear to be aware of cc issues and aren't passing it off as being ok for celiacs. A step in the right direction I guess, although I hope they figure out a way to let this be an option for everyone.

"Domino's and the NFCA found that while the crust is certified as gluten free, current store operations at Domino's cannot guarantee that each handcrafted pizza will be completely free from gluten," the company's news release said."

I hate these pseudo gluten-free menus. It confuses the non- gluten-free people who think we can eat at these places because they have the gluten-free menu.

I just saw something interesting on WNBC evening news that Domino’s pizza will start to sell gluten free pizza because many people have problems with gluten and they want to help them.

The question is: Where will they bake it? In the same oven? In the same pans as regular pizza?

Will you buy it?

I'm with you, Karen.
Can't seem to get people to understand the following:

Gluten FREE eating means Gluten FREE. FREE of GLUTEN.

ENTIRELY.


It doesn't mean "maybe, kinda, sorta"
It doesn't mean dabbling in it or "gluten lite"
it doesn't mean 4 out of 7 days and on holidays we take breaks.
It doesn't mean use non-gluten grains, but cook with wheat items.

This thinking keeps people sick. :blink:

And gets us the :rolleyes: and the thinking that this is a fad diet.

I walked through BJs today and looked at the crackers and breads and said to hubs: Holy Crap--that stuff nearly killed me two years ago. :ph34r:

You are either gluten free or you are not.
No grey area.

I saw it now. I was watching the evening new and the moderator was very exited about it, so I posted a new topic. I didn't know that there was one already. Sorry!

I see it as a step forward...not a large step, but forward never the less. For those are able to eat gluten light or are not bothered by cross contamination/contact, a hot pizza might be a real treat.

Not everyone is fortunate to live by a Pizarro... to die for gluten free pizza.

If this program is a success, perhaps they will invest in separate equipment. :) Gotta be hopeful! ;)

I predict it will flop. Maybe not immediately but when they figure out most people who want gluten-free can't eat it, and wheat eaters will not like it (probably) and the "fad" goes away - so will the pizza.

Unless they up the stakes and put in a dedicated line for gluten-free at each store - which I doubt.

Even then, I wouldn't trust it - given the level of communication and "watch" you get over a Domino's pizza. I wouldn't trust them unless I was over their shoulder.
