Californian pizza kitchen birthday reward

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So I LOVE California Pizza Kitchen.  Yes, they have a limited gluten-free pizza menu, but it is yummy and safe.

 I belong to the pizza dough rewards program.  We have gotten $5 off here and there from it.  For your birthday month ( October for me), they give you a " gift" - a free dessert.  However, there are no gluten-free desserts.  I pointed this out to them in 2015.  They said they had a dessert they were developing and it would be out soon, but they were kind and gave me $10 on my rewards to use towards my pizza!  

Last year, same damn thing...but no response to my complaint.  This year....still no gluten-free desserts...and I have emailed, commented on FAcebook, and now messaged on FB.  This just make sure me mad!  So many of us go there and pay a premium price to get a safe pizza.... but they want me to just watch my hub eat my birthday dessert?  I keep suggesting to them to just give people $5 off for their birthdays.  Or  maybe a choice of a dessert or $5 off?  

Anyway, thanks for reading my vent!  If you belong to the pizza dough rewards, you might want to email, FB message, tweet, etc about this terrible & cruel  injustice!  😜

LOL I offer my customers a free cupcake for their birthdays. >.< I recently made some thing crazy on the pizza topic. I got Califlower foods plant based pizza crust, topped it with butter flavored coconut spray, erythrol and cinnamon and cooked it extra crispy for a cinnamon gram crust to snack on.....wish I could have pumpkin, would be great with pumpkin pie filling and toasted nuts over the top.

And it's not like I really need the dessert - I made 20+ dozen cupcakes on friday- so I can have some birthday cake.  It's just the principle of the thing.  

Ennis- that sounds  like what we used to do with extra pie crust when I was a kid!  So yummy.

I know right, that happy jump up and down moment when you recreate a childhood classic in a gluten free version, simple things are the best. I recreated my grandmothers empanadas using plantain batter and cinnamon pumpkin filling. Could not eat them due to carbs but I could nibble on them and taste them without getting sick. That Pizza crust thing reminded me these hard cinnamon flat bread snacks they used to serve at a restaurant...minus the icing. I found this one carrot cake extract, OMG taste like this spice cake at my grandmothers and just makes me and my mother cry when we use it in stuff.  And this morning I made a GREAT porridge that reminded me peanut butter cream of wheat. Used almond paste, coconut flour, cashew milk, psyllium husk, konjac flour, peanut free peanut butter extract, stevia, and a bit of konjac noodles blended into it. Nice lumpy texture as it cooled like cream of wheat from my child hood.

    • As was explained to me - Your gut heals and yes, you probably could eat gluten again and not feel any ill affect, for a while.  However....!  The damage is starting all over again.  Like picking a scab off of a sore.  Sort of a nasty comparison but accurate.  Celiac never goes away.    Google the banana babies.  Very interesting as it fully explains why celiac was once thought to be a childhood disease, 
    • I take Slice of Life gummy multivitamins. I think it's free of all that stuff.  
    • I wouldn't worry about the oven.  We moved in a rental house short term while waiting for our current home to go through and  I wiped out the oven and then used it.  No problems.  When visiting a friend who cooks pies all the time  I just pop a loose piece of tin foil over my stuff.  I think covering the stuff is more for my mental health than anything else! 
    • Wouldn't!  Couldn't!   Shouldn't!   Oh my!  I hear  what some are saying about keeping areas clean, but no way.  I get not wanting to cook for a big group but a couple pretty easy, and cost effective, thoughts are a simple crock pot or two of chili, taco bar, potato bar or a salad bar.  I just did a Xmas party for 22 people, only 4 of us are gluten free, and did crock pots of chili.  for bread I bought gluten free hamburger buns, sliced them and then quartered them.  It made great bread garlic bread.. 
    • Jmg, Here is a nice thread where Ennis_tx has posted many dairy free link/resources in case you have not read this thread yet. Also to answer  your main question about Casein and as Awol noted about their being a difference about lactose and casein since lactose free cheese can still cause problems. See these livestrong links that summarizes the difference between lactose and casein and why it is usually the casein most people react too. https://www.livestrong.com/article/396733-types-of-casein-protein/ https://www.livestrong.com/article/412339-what-cheese-has-no-casein-or-lactose/ I would also review your medicine's.  I had a bad reaction to my BP medicine Losartan causing my dairy allergy to resurface. after 6 weeks off it my villi seems to be able to tolerate dairy again. I hope this is helpful and I hope you find out what is causing you your dairy problems. A little testing should help you determine if it the casein or the lactose in the dairy is the problem. Lactaid can help with the lactose problem.  Or as Awol noted try a lactose free cheese to see if dairy still bother's you . . . then it might the casein or check your medicine's as it was in my case causing my dairy problem. People do grow out of a dairy problem often.  . . so don't give up on it entirely. Check back in 6 months and see if your villi have healed.   Mine did. I had a terrible milk allergy as a kid but grew out of it in time.  Thanks be to God. But do check your medicine (if you  take any) their might be something else ( that have taken for granite is safe) that might be causing unknown villi blunting as the Losartan did/was causing in my cause . . . causing my dairy allergy to flare back up. ****this is not medical advice only my experience after recognizing my BP medicine Losartan had caused  Villi blunting issues leading to my dairy allergy. I hope you find some of this information helpful and hang in there you can get better from a dairy allergy. I have from changing my medicine to a non-blunting medicine. posterboy,
