The veined cheese arguments is another one of those "trial and error" things.

Here are the arguments:

YES -- The yes people state that the bacteria used to make bleu cheese comes from moldy bread (which is accurate) -- the issue then becomes does the mnoldy bread infect the cheese? The yes people say it has to -- it is on the cheese and it did contain gluten at some point

NO -- These folks agree with the "yes" group in that the bacteria comes from the bread -- however, the bacteria/mold then feeds/works on the actual cheese and not the bread. Hence, the bread is used to start the process, but not to finish it.

What Science tells us - Scientific testing has shown that after the bacteria/mold has been applied to the cheese, the gluten is not carried through the process. The only gluten to be found was that of the moldy bread that was left on the actual cheese. This amount of gluten was found to be so small, it barely registered...

Furthermore, if the cheese is cleaned before it is shipped, it will have less if any gluten.

In my experience, I have not had any problems with bleu or gorogonzola cheese. I eat them all the time.

The choice is up to you...

Distilled vinegar is gluten free..

Personally, I can't imagine why anyone would purposly eat moldy cheese. That's what makes blue cheese look the way it does. If it was called "Moldy Cheese", nobody would buy it. Interesting how it's expensive too. If we find anything in the back of our refridgerator having mold on it, we toss it out. As I recall, mozzarella gets pinkish when it gets mold on it.

Of course we're still talking about consuming the milk of an animal which isn't anything like humans. If apes are supposed to related to us...well, let's not go there...(sorry, rant over)

A large number of blue or veined cheeses aren't even started on bread any more. They're started on an artificial medium.

I once read as post from somebody who knew a cheesemaker. According to the cheesemaker, even if every molecule of the starting culture were gluten, it would be less than 1 part per million. I have not researched this myself, but am merely repeating what I read at St. John's.

I love those moldy cheeses. Yum, yum.

I don't know about Domino's (although it would be terrific if it's true!) but I'd be careful about blue cheese. This week I almost bought a tub of crumbled blue cheese, and luckily looked at the lable....it specifically said that it contained WHEAT. Yipes! Maybe some blue cheeses add something else that makes them unsafe?

Boar's Head blue cheese is gluten-free.

My husband has been a manager at Domino's for several years. We checked with corporate to be certain the wings were okay. Here is how to do this:

When you call in, ask for a manager. Explain that you want to place an order for the wings but have an allergy to wheat. Ask the manager to request that the person handling your order wash their hands just prior to handling the wings to avoid cross contamination. If possible, order other stuff along with it so that it is worth their while to do the special handling for you. Be sure to tip well so that they remember you next time and have an incentive to go that extra mile. I would question the bleu cheese just because I can't stand the smell of the stuff, but the ranch is definitely ok.

Since my husband did not work at the store which delivers to our home, he contacted the manager there and explained the situation. We order regularly. Our son enjoys the opportunity to get something with gluten in it (even if he does have to eat it in the floor away from us) while the gluten-free folks in the house hold are satisfied as well.

Good luck.

OK, so here's a post over three years old (I see Rice Guy was in rare form :D ). I was craving hot wings because of the Frank's Hot Wing Sauce thread and conducted a search.

I must admit to a rare lapse of judgement, but a while back I ordered some pizza , cheezy bread, and hot wings for a family get-together we were having. I feel it is my duty to feed my guests, and do not limit the selection to gluten-free items. So, I go get the food, get home, everyone's chowing down, yum yum, and I look at the wings. They don't "appear" to have any flour on them (I know, that's a very stupid assumption to make). I eat one. It's pretty damn tasty. I get a little anxious and don't eat any more.

I didn't get sick (thank you GOD!). But now I'm wondering if I could get away with following cdford's advise. I pick up pizza frequently for my guests and can't help but notice the employees are usually covered with flour (why do they always wear black shirts?). Seems to me there's probably nothing more nerve racking to a Celiac than being in a fried chicken place, a pasta place, or a pizza place.

Any thoughts on this?

best regards, lm

Here is a link to Dominos' Allergy Information. I was surprised to see that their white sauce (not alfredo) is gluten free.

https://order.dominos.com/en/pages/content/nutritional/allergen-info.jsp

This is a 3 year old thread. In the last year, Dominos has offered a gluten-free crust. However, because of cc issues, they do say that the " gluten-free" pizzas are not for Celiacs.

Here is one of the many discussions:

I can tell you having worked in both Dominos and other pizza places that unless it is an unopened, unused container of sauce, it is not gluten free. The sauce is put on the pizza by using a ladle to dip it out, then using that same ladle to smear it around the crust, then the ladle goes back in the sauce container. As soon as the first non-gluten free pizza is made, the sauce is no longer gluten free. This, and the same double dipping issue with toppings and hands is why pizza is one of the most elusive safe products for us to get out.

Dominos is really gross anyway. It was so disappointing when they tried to capitalize on a gluten free crust and it turned out to be  unsafe for celiacs. It's unfortunate that these large corporations won't go the extra mile to do these things correctly. They are just trying to make a quick buck off of the uninformed (thereby contributing to the idea that "gluten free" is a fad or a fleeting marketing trend.) I would rather just make my own pizza or grab some frozen gluten-free pizza dough from Wegman's instead of supporting that kind of exploitative enterprise.

I was disappointed myself that their pizza was deemed unsafe for celiacs. Mostly because when they first announced it, before I saw that, I was familiar with Dominos because of having worked in one. I thought that since they don't work with any flour in the stores at all, if they simply had a small amount of toppings set aside as gluten free and a small prep area. Special pans and ran the pizzas on the top of the oven that they would be minimally at risk. It is unfortunate that they couldn't do it right for all of us. On the other hand, while it isn't safe for us, I've moved on from my original pissy attitude to be grateful for the people that can enjoy it. There are a lot of people who are gluten free for health reasons other than celiac who can enjoy it, not the least of which is autism. If can make even a handful of lives of families struggling with that easier, I'm for it.
