Gluten-free American Pizza Championship Winners - 2013

Celiac.com 11/08/2013 - For spectators and competitors alike, the American Pizza Championship is an exciting event displaying some of America’s premier pizzaioli, or pizza makers. In the interest of full disclosure, I served as one of the five judges for this event.

Photo: Jefferson AdamsAmong the pizzaioli to compete in the American Pizza Championship at the International Baking Industry Expo in Las Vegas, was Heather Zook, of Ohio.

Baking in her first-ever pizza competition, Zook surprised herself by emerging victorious, as the first-place winner in the gluten-free pizza category.

Zook took first place with her three meat pizza with a crust made from a white rice-millet flour blend. Her victory earned Zook a slot on the U.S. Pizza Team, and an all-expense-paid trip to Parma, Italy to compete in the World Pizza Championships as a member of that team in the spring of 2014.

Second place in the gluten-free pizza category went to Mike Anheiser of Pizza Dock in Fredericktown, Ohio.

Jason Samosky of Samosky's Homestyle Pizzaria in Valley City, Ohio took home the third place honors in the gluten-free pizza category.

Anyone noticing a theme here? For great gluten-free pizza, Ohio looks like a good place to be.

Great article, but bad news... I called Samosky's today (2/22/2014) to find out if they are serving GF pizzas yet and I was told that they have no plans to serve GF at this time. I was told they would have to have a separate kitchen and they don't intend to add a GF kitchen at this time.

You only need one positive on the celiac panel. I tested positive only to the DGP IgA and had a Marsh Stage IIIB intestinal damage. Good luck!

Welcome to the forum. First, you need to get copies of your celiac test to confirm you actually had it done and what the results were. Second, to confirm a diagnosis, you must obtain biopsies via an endoscopy. Were the doctors gastroenterologists? Third you need to research celiac disease. Yes, you can be asymptomatic, but could still have instestinal damage as the small intestine is vast. here is a good place to start: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You might think you are a silent celiac, but ever been anemic? Had your bones checked?

That's good to know about Texas Children's, unfortunately I don't believe they accept our insurance. Our former pediatrician joined with one of their medical groups and we had to find a new one due to insurance. I'll check out their site though.

9 months ago I went to my doctor for normal blood work. She called me to tell me everything looked great, but o yeah, my gluten sensitivity levels were extremely high. I should probably stop eating gluten since it looks like I have celiac. She hung up and I never heard from her again. I cut out gluten completely, even though I have never experienced one single symptom of celiac. 9 months later, I decided to reach out to another doctor to get a second opinion, as I experienced absolutely zero change on 9 months of strict gluten free diet. All this doctor did was request the results from the previous doctor, tell me it is confirmed I have celiac, and hung up the phone. This angers me tremendously on two counts. One, I have absolutely zero symptoms of celiac, and would NEVER know if I was "glutened". Two, the complete lack of information or support from both doctors is horrifying to me. And finally, I simply do not believe the diagnosis and as considering just starting to eat a normal diet again. I would never know the difference. I am really just venting because this situation upsets me so much, and I have suffered mentally and socially from going gluten free. Since I have absolutely zero symptoms, even if I was actually celiac, I highly doubt anything would ever come of it if I continued to eat gluten. I could just pretend I never heard from either terrible doctor and go on living my life. Someone has to have been in the same situation as me, right?

Texas children's hospital in the med center has a celiac center now. https://www.texaschildrens.org/departments/celiac-disease-clinic Good luck!
