Pizza Hut Gluten Free

Recommended Posts

I just saw the article saying that Pizza Hut is now making a pizza that is certified as gluten free by the gluten intolerance group.  This is confusing: is it or is it not safe for those with celiac disease?


Life throws us curve-balls sometimes, but if we didn't have challenges we would become too complacent and forget to respect the value of life itself.

The  pizza  they are  using  is  Udi's gluten-free kit... that  is  safe & gluten-free...  problem  comes  in  that  it is prepared as  safely  as  it can be  but  it  still is  a place  that  has tons  of  wheat  products  so  the CC is the problem... plus  it  becomes an  unsafe  pizza  if  someone  decides  they  want  to add  maybe peppers  & olives  to  the gluten-free  pizza ... The  common  area  also  isn't  wheat  free.....if one  is a very sensitive  celiac  I would  not  eat  that  pizza....for  most  as  long as  the  staff follows  through  on their  gluten-free  training  the  pizza  would  probably be  fine....

I have  eaten the  same gluten-free pizza  at  home  with  no  problems, only  difference  would  be  the  restaurant !

I would ask to the manger to walk you through the preparation process. Observe them making the pizza. I do this at my fav burger joint. Only once did I catch an employee not following gluten "allergy" procedures. So, I watch every single time and talk to the manager first!

I can not wait to try the pizza!

I have personally observed the kitchen when they get busy. Local restaurants can be so different about how careful they are that I would never trust my life to hoping they follow thru with all the rules to keep me safe. It really depends on the management's dedication to and understanding of the life threatening issues with Celiac.

 

Training and actual performance are two totally different things. Written policy has to actually be properly and acurately executed every single time for Celiac's. It just seems to risky to me.

 

I can make a pizza at home that won't make me sick for weeks and destroy parts of my intestines.

Very true, that training in gluten free practice and actually carrying it out are two different things.  I have always believed this as well.  I have had celiac now for 5 years, and have yet to eat out in a restaurant that is not dedicated gluten free (and even at that only twice since it is not in my home town).  Good to know that Udi's Pizza kit is what Pizza Hut uses, and therefore I assume it's pretty good.  I'll just eat at home when a pizza craving hits!
