"Pizza Hut is about to join the gluten-free brigade.

Beginning Jan. 26, roughly 2,400 of the chain's 6,300 domestic locations will begin selling gluten-free pizzas. The move comes two years after rival Domino's rolled out a pizza sold with a gluten-free crust — but not entirely gluten free. Pizza Hut will be the first major pizza chain to sell a pizza that is certified gluten-free...."

Yippee! I hope this pans out. Remember Dunkin Donuts? They were supposed to offer a pre-packaged gluten-free pastry. It never happened to my knowledge (or I gave up going to every store in my area for six months after the announcement).

Wow, wonders never cease! :)

 

It still wouldn't be any help to my diet, (I don't eat cheese or pepperoni and wouldn't want to pay $10 for just sauce on crust) but that would be great for lots of celiacs!

Have you tried California Pizza Kitchen?

No...I'm really scared to be honest. The only place I've eaten out is the gluten free restaurant. I know that other people do it, but I'm so scared of being glutened because I get so sick.

Oh my. Although Pizza Hut pizza is very low on my list of edible so-called pizzas (remember, I'm originally from Connecticut where they know how to make REAL pizza), it would be nice to have a restaurant right here in my town where I could eat without fear.

 

But I'd be willing to bet the one in my town will NOT be one of the ones to start carrying this. <_<


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

CPK is GIG trained as well. It's quite safe for celiacs if you stick to ordering one of the certified pizzas.

That's good to know. Have you eaten there? I know that you're fairly sensitive.

Huh. Great if it pans out but I would be nervous about it.  How many pizza place employee follow the food prep guidelines now, nevermind the pickiness that a safe pizza would require.

 

Would be nice though...

I hear you Nicole. I got all excited when I heard it...but then realized I won't do it. Too much room for error. That's why I never eat out...scared of getting sick. I'm hoping this gets better in time.

I still have little faith in a Pizza hut employee actually wearing gloves, washing their hands, etc.  Unless it was a sit down location and I got the manager to serve me, I will still avoid it.  Also, if I wanted to eat an Udi's gluten-free frozen pizza with just pepperoni on it, I would go get one from the grocery store and bake it myself.  Not too excited on this one.

I was commenting that they only seem to be offering tomato sauce with cheese or pepperoni.

 

 

That's the classic pizza.   I guess they are starting out small to keep it as free of cc as possible?

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.

Chuck E Cheese has a cheese gluten-free pizza that I would trust, but I don't think I'd want to actually eat it.  LOL It is another one of those deals where it comes in the box, frozen, and they cook it in the box it came in.  It is nice that the kids can eat pizza with their friends but it is expensive for a frozen pizza. I'm not sure I'd want to try it.

The official Pizza Hut web site has this statement at the bottom:

"Additionally, while Pizza Hut is proud to offer pizzas with gluten-free ingredients, Pizza Hut kitchens are not gluten-free environments. Due to the handcrafted nature of our menu items, variations in vendor-supplied ingredients, and our use of shared cooking and preparation areas, we cannot assure you that our restaurant environment or any menu item will be completely free of gluten. We recommend that you consult your medical advisor as to what is safe for you."

 

So many things can go wrong.

**One server in a well know chain that uses separate plates with a special pattern actually told me that flour battered deep fried chicken was "naturally gluten free". When I had the manager come over, he fought with me over wheat being different from gluten.

**In another chain, when I sent back my crouton covered salad, they tried to pick off the croutons and then serve it to me again.

**In yet another, where they advertised proper gluten free selections they refused to offer bread on any order labeled gluten free, the kitchen actually sent my meal with the bread on my plate.

**In another, the food was slathered with the gravy listed as "order without gravy" on their menu.

**In the U.S.A. companies are self policing about the legal 0.02% gluten limit. A recent factory actually produced cookies well over that limit. They were neither recalled nor did the company take responsibility or offer to buy back these dangerous products.

Not sure how this part was cut off.

 

All the above people were part of much more stringent rules for customer service. In one case, the restaurant is now closed. The owner/operator called me to beg me to overturn my report of his employees ignorant behaviors.

 

They stop the gluten-free safety protocol in the kitchen. There is no recognition of the servers need to maintain the gluten-free status.

 

And they allow people who want to be LOW GLUTEN to order gluten-free pizza's with gluten toppings. That will confuse many into believing that all the toppings are gluten-free.

 

So no I don't trust my life to the choices being made by people in pizza chains where every item is made from wheat.
