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 heard about it too looking at their menu.

Has anyone here tried it yet?

Not with the warnings about contamination, No way, no how.

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

    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
