Godfathers Pizza

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this has been posted and forgive me if it has - but Godfathers Pizza now offers a gluten free pizza. It is frozen and they can bake it there (and I checked, they are aware of cross-contamination) but you can also take it home to bake. Went there last night and it's awesome! Pizza is the one food my 13 year old really misses - and so it's nice to have a restaurant that we can stop at to eat - KUDO's to Godfathers Pizza! $9.99 for a single topping 9" pizza - which I wish they would make them a little bigger - for a starving 13 year old growing boy that just isn't quite enough!!!!!

Do you know if you are a 'test market' or if they have rolled them out chain-wide? There was a post about 6 months ago, and I called my local Godfather's, but it was in the test markets only, so no gluten-free pizza for my dh.

I have been able to get gluten free pizzas at Godfathers in Iowa for a couple of years now. Not sure if this is the same as the frozen pizza the original poster mentioned, though.

Thanks for your response!

I called the local Godfather's after reading about things this summer, and they told me at that time the gluten-free pizza was a local test market item, but if successful, it would expand. I was hoping to hear it had succeeded.

From what they told me it was just a test market and only certain restaurants are trying this out - but i'm sure trying to support it- in the last 2 weeks I've bought 3 pizzas and they said they are selling a lot of them. What an awesome thing!!!! That's the worst part I have found of this disease is trying to eat out - cooking at home is no biggie but trying to find something for my 13 year old to eat when we are out and about it's so hard.

Here is an Email I got from God Fathers.

Dear Customers,

Thank you for your inquiry. We are equally excited about the gluten free pizza being offered at 108th and Maple St. in Omaha, Nebraska and our new test location at 802 N. Ankeny Blvd. in Ankeny, Iowa.

Currently we are testing the gluten free pizza at these two locations to ensure all safety precautions are met to prevent cross contamination operationally within the store. With the success of our test we will look for more corporate and franchise stores to sign aboard and join in the successful venture of offering the option of a gluten free pizza.

Both Corporate and Franchise locations will be responsible for agreeing to and meeting the guidelines that have been set by the Godfather

I wish they would offer gluten free pizza here. I guess I should not be so greedy, we have plenty of gluten free pizza options around. :P

    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
