Domino's Pizza which they are calling "gluten free," is not really gluten free because only the crust is, the toppings will be cross contaminated from the other's Domino's ingredients, and the work space and utensils used on them.

That is all you need to know.

I tried it once, because it came out around the same time I went gluten-free and wasn't yet well educated. It didn't taste that great, was really expensive, and it gave me diarrhea for three days. Big mistake!

I had another celiac tell me she tolerates it just fine do I did order one this weekend for my daughter. I did ask for a manager and told him I wanted him to make it and make sure the screen was clean. He did tell me about same oven, etc but would be extra careful. They do not make their own dough so there isn't flour being thrown up I'm the air. My dd did fine. I honestly hear so many people talking about Mellow Mushroom because they are so safe. The lady I know said it makes her sick but Dominos does not. I say all that to say my dd said it wasn't that great and wouldn't even eat the leftovers. Haha

Had one last night. It was fantastic. Crust was thin and very crispy, real pizza crusty. Extremely tasty. Just like real pizza. Absolutely no gluten free hideously tasting bread flavor like all the frozen gluten-free pizzas I've had.

 

Didn't have any reactions. I've eaten hot wings from pizza places before. And Subway gluten-free subs. Talked to the Dominos employee. He said they are careful when making them. Yes I'm well aware of the potential for cc. And their disclaimers about not being suitable for Celiac Diseasers. Pretty smart on their part. Eat it, get sick, or think you did, can't sue. Sure hope this is copied by other companies. No gluten-free ingredients. Employee training on minimizing cc. Still, big chance of cc. Let the gluten-free eater beware. But, your choice. Goes without saying, super sensitive, physically or pycologically, don't bother. For myself, I've decided I'm as close to a "normal" Celiac as there is. Not super sensitive, but have gotten real sick accidentally a few times.   

 

Decided to risk it. Was successful. For one glorious night I ate real pizza!

 

best regards, lm
