Domino’s gluten-free pizza crust review

Posted at 9:08 PM on May 07, 2012 by I am THAT Lady: Lauren

May 7th, 2012

I was so excited when Domino’s announced that they are serving Gluten-Free pizza crust !  I am gluten sensitive, so traces of gluten do not bother me… only large amounts.  There are HUGE concerns for cross contamination which don’t really bother me and many others with gluten intolerances; however, someone with Celiac should not be eating this pizza!

There she is in all her Gluten-Free glory! I love pineapple and ham on my pizza – so since I wasn’t sharing this one I got the toppings I LOVE!

It was a 10″ pizza, so for me it was the perfect size for 2 meals.  It was DELICIOUS and AMAZING!  The crust had a great crispy texture and had TASTE, which is rare when getting take out Gluten-Free pizza (Usually it takes like cheese covering up a cardboard box…) .  This was the best Gluten-Free pizza I have ever had, so I highly recommend it.

To celebrate this day I made myself a Gluten-Free chocolate cake and tried to forget how many calories I just devoured in 5 minutes :) The Gluten-Free Pantry Decadent Chocolate Cake Mix is my favorite cake mix – it tastes the most like ‘normal’ cake!

Have you tried Domino’s Gluten-Free Pizza yet?  If not, I would highly recommend it!

Disclaimer: I was not compensated nor asked to write about this by Domino’s, I wrote about it because I was so excited and I wanted to share this with all of you!

    I am glad to hear the pizza was great, sad that cleiac shouldn’t eat it.
    if you ever want to try a homemade , really tasty gf cake, google Quinoa chocolate cake, since it isn’t from a mix, it is actually pretty affordable to make and most of the mixing can be done in the blender. here is one version http://www.joyofkosher.com/recipe/quinoa-chocolate-cake/ but there are many versions online

    Domino’s seems to be on the ‘cutting edge’ (no pun intended) when it comes to satisfying nutrition concerns. They make a special pizza for schools now that have a whole grain crust, less sodium in the crust and a lower fat mozzarella. Very tasty. The kids haven’t caught on that it’s a healthier version. They still line up in droves to buy it at the school I work at. :-)

    Unfortunately, in no version of reality can this pizza be considered “gluten free.” There is a HUGE difference (primarily in marketing and legality) between advertising a product as “made with a gluten free crust” and “being gluten free.” If you noticed, nowhere do they call it a “gluten free pizza.”

    If a person with ANY form of sensitivity consumes this pizza, it is a very simple matter of their body lacking the enzyme to break down the protein. Like my college junk car that CANNOT use premium gas because it destroys the engine (i.e. the engine is incapable of breaking down that fuel), my body works the same way. This results in pain for some, though some people (even with “full blown” Celiac Disease) do NOT experience pain. Either way, internal damage is being done to the body and years of life are literally lost after consuming specific amounts of gluten protein.

    Most importantly, chances for developing cancers due to consuming gluten with a body that cannot break it down skyrockets drastically. This pizza, as stated above is not gluten free by any means and this was CONFIRMED through contact with Domino’s.

    The point of this pizza was not to accommodate an under-served market. It is not to increase gluten free product availability for those who have it medically necessary to eat gluten free. It was to increase sales by offering Gluten Free Pizzas to a market that is in it for the “fad” aspect. I received a response to my inquiries the second the press release happened and it was confirmed that this is in no way meant for those who need to eat gluten free pizza, Celiac or Sensitive. The company also has no intentions of installing gluten free ovens, using separate equipment or training staff.

    I am actually really sensitive to gluten. I get stomach aches pretty quick after having just a bite or two of something I shouldn’t have, and I even react to smaller chemical traces of gluten that a lot of people don’t. I tried the domino’s pizza prepared to feel a bit ill and didn’t react at all. For legal purposes they need to offer the disclaimer that they do but from my experience it was great. If you are going to be rushed to the hospital for having a sniff of gluten I would say stay away, but coming from someone who is very sensitive to gluten I will confirm what is said here, the pizza is actually really good…

      Jessica, thanks so much for sharing! I have eaten the pizza twice and never had a reaction to it either. The people at my Domino’s were very well aware of Gluten Cross contamination and try their best to keep that to a minimum.

    I too have tried it and it is WONDERFUL!! I have had no sensitivity to it all! I’ve never understood so called gluten free sauces and cheese. They are not made with gluten to begin with are they? So as long as the crust is gluten free, I don’t see it as being harmful. But I’m no doctor and each person is definitely different in what they can tolerate.

    I just had the gluten free crust pizza from Domino’s yesterday! What a surprise, it was great. I am very sensitive to gluten and had no reaction whatsoever from this product. the counter person called the pizza maker over and he was very well trained and knowledgeable about the process and ingredients. It was great to be able to eat pizza with my family!

    I have been sick for over 2years and just found out last month the problem is gluten. It has been hard to say the least. The last time I ate pizza was over 6 months ago because I got so sick after eating it. I just tried the pizza and it was so so good!! And I am not sick! Yeah! I won’t eat it a lot but once a month or so, o I think it will be nice to eat the same thing as the family!
