gluten-free Pizza - John's Best, Westport Ct

4 posts in this topic

Had gluten-free pizza from John's Best in Westport CT last night - hey, pizza! They are the second commercial building east of Whole Foods, on the same side of the street.

crust was from a CT-based nationally distributed company, Still Riding Pizza, apparently they sell to consumers as well as restaurants & there is a list of their restaurant customers on their website.

Oddly the John's Best website mentions nothing about gluten-free, but they do always have it, my spouse even found a YouTube video from the local cable channel about the pizza & how they keep everything separate.

The crust was pretty good for gluten-free, we got take-out and on re-heating the edges were crispy but the middle wasn't fully crisped (just like gluten crust!). You can get any of their toppings (note eggplant and meatballs are not gluten-free toppings, we checked and bacon, sausage and zucchini are all gluten-free), and when we ordered the counter person even checked if we wanted cheese or *not*. He said many folks get no cheese, and Still Riding's website shows no dairy ingredients, so you could actually get gluten-free cf pizza!. There is one size - medium (14").

John's Best also has gluten-free pasta available and gluten-free cookies at their deli counter. We got a mozarella salad (moz, tomatoes, canned peppers, olive oil, herbs) and it came with...a side of italian bread (!) - thank goodness the salad was sealed in a plastic takeout container so no bread cc.

Pizza. wow, I ate pizza :)

Sorry for the delayed response, I was on vacation for a while...

There *are* other CT restaurants that use this gluten-free pizza dough, check out the still riding website & see if any are close by. Happy pizza eating :)

Engine 6 in Norwich also has GREAT pizza. I do not see them on the Still Riding web page but my wife and I drive about 30 minutes to eat at Engine 6. Calzones, Pizza and bread sticks. The owner, Marcel, is a great guy and just loves feeding celiacs! If you get the opportunity check it out - well worth the trip!

    • Hi ch88, You could try going nightshade free to see if it helps your arthritis.  It might help.  The common food nightshades are potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, turmeric and paprika.  If you try nightshade free for one month that should be enough time to know if it helps IMHO. Sweet potatoes/yams are ok, as they are not nightshades.
    • Thankyou both of you for your advice, i will have the endoscopy will just have to wait, my blood tests were not hitting the roof with reading but a low to medium result, dont want to be one of them people who have gone gluten free with no need, however i do show typical symptons of celiac but no overwhelming symptons apart from feeling nauseous and crampy at times, and extreme tiredness. There is soooo much to learn
    • You are normal!  All the things you are going through are normal for someone with celiac disease....probably with any life changing illness.  What you need is patience.  Most here take a year to heal or longer due to setbacks on the diet or healing from systemic damage.  The nervous system seems to take the longest.  Ask your doctor to check you for any deficiencies.  No sense guessing what you might need.  It is a common and recommended practice to check for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-common-nutrient-deficiencies-might-an-adult-experience-prior-to-diagnosis/ Once healed, you might not need any supplements, if you eat a wide and varied healthy diet.  
    • Yes!  Ask for the IgA deficiency test!  Why?  Well, your doctor did not even follow protocol.  In order to validate the IgA celiac tests, he should have determined if you are IgA deficient or not. http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf  I have never tested positive on the IgG tests and only had one positive on the IgA DGP test, but I was not IgA deficient, so my GI knew that my test was valid and I needed an endoscopy to confirm my diagnosis.  You do not know if any of your tests are valid.  You need the IgA test.  It is a control test only in the case of diagnosing celiac disease.  But....some celiacs are low in IgA and that seems to happen more often in celiacs than the general population.   https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/07/dunkirk-is-a-stunningly-spare-survival-film/534252/
    • Almost EVERY single celiac expert in the world and/or groups like the U.K./U.S. Gastroenterologist Associations recommend obtaining biopsies for diagnosing celiac disease.  There are some exceptions.  If you are too ill to even risk an endoscopy, your celiac panel is extremely high on several of the celiac tests (this is still debatable), you have long wait times in getting the endoscopy (government health wait times) or you can not afford to get one are all acceptable.   You know your situation and will have to determine what is best based on your doctor's input.   The blood tests are not 100% accurate.  Heck, I tested positive only to a really odd one (the DGP IGA).  I had no noticeable symptoms.  I chose the endoscopy.  I never wanted to doubt my diagnosis as my hubby went Gluten Free some 16 years ago based on the poor advice of two medical doctors.  He got well, but does he really have celiac disease?  He would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical, yes, medical.   I hope this helps.  Best to research like you are doing so that you feel comfortable and committed.
