In Topic: Pizza Hut Offering Certified gluten-free Pizza!

13 January 2015 - 09:23 PM

I would not put my health in the hands of a Pizza Hut employee with limited training about CC and the seriousness of Celiac disease.

I didn't read anything in the news item about "limited training" so am I missing something? Prepared in an isolated area, segregated ingredients, parchment paper, sanitary gloves, dough from offsite, dedicated cutter, special boxes--where do you think it will go wrong? Here in Ontario, Pizza Pizza partnered with the Canadian Celiac Association, perhaps three years ago, and it has worked well. I have eaten their gluten-free offering a number of times with no issues.

If there is now soy sauce with wheat, then, yes, we have lost this as a safe food. There are so few prepared soups that are safe--the loss of one is sad.

I changed the title, but have no information on TJ's birds. As Karen said, they are unlikely to be a problem.

If you are up here in The Great White North of Canada, all products by Piller's are gluten-free. Gluten-free pepperoni can be hard to find, but theirs is. Find their products at Loblaw group stores, including no frills, Zehr's, Canadian Superstore, etc.

The beer is a definite no-no, but "seasoning" is also suspect, as some seasoning mixes contain wheat or barley. When listed as an ingredient, "spices" are safe, but they are not the same as seasoning. If seasoning contains wheat, that must be disclosed, but in the US barley can still be hidden.
