Have you been looking to try Domino’s gluten free pizza? Well, we are in a good news/bad news type of situation here…. mostly bad news though…
Domino’s used to be my go to spot for quick pizza. I had a small Domino’s within walking distance to my house. I may or may not have been lazy enough to have it delivered despite being a short walk away… don’t want to talk about that! haha.
It was so easy to order that delicious cheesy bread. My favorite pizza at Domino’s pizza was meat lovers with extra sauce and extra cheese.
Well, my Domino’s Pizza days are over and if you are on a gluten free diet, your’s probably should be too and here is why.
Is Domino’s Gluten Free Pizza Safe for Celiacs?
No… have you been to a Domino’s recently? It is an absolute cross contamination NIGHTMARE! No fault of the workers, but it’s just a gluten cloud in there. I’m sure every surface has gluten particles on it.
I usually say for folks with Celiac Disease to just talk to the staff and see what they can do to make you feel safe, but I honestly don’t think there is anyway they could make a gluten free pizza safe for someone concerned with cross contamination.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but their kitchens are covered in flour.
If you are reading this and have experienced otherwise, let me know in the comments below.
Domino’s Pizza agrees with me. On their website they state “Domino’s® pizza made with a Gluten Free Crust is prepared in a common kitchen with the risk of gluten exposure. Therefore, Domino’s® DOES NOT recommend this pizza for customers with celiac disease. Customers with gluten sensitivities should exercise judgment in consuming this pizza.”
So there you go…
How Does Domino’s Gluten Free Pizza Taste?
When I went gluten free early on, Domino’s gluten free pizza was my very first experience with a gluten free pizza. I remember when I got it, my first reaction was, is this it? I just paid how much for this tiny pizza?!
So it’s considerably more expensive than a regular pizza, it better taste good.
Oh it’s burnt… Well I think since it’s a really thin crust, they cook it too long. I had ordered a few over the early stages of my gluten free diet and each time they were burnt.
But the taste… Yea it’s ok. I go with extra cheese and extra sauce. The crust is nothing to write home about. There are better options out there. For the cost, it’s not worth it. It scratches the pizza itch, that’s about it.
If you are not worried about cross contamination, then go ahead, but there are so many other better options out there.
Other Gluten Free Pizza Options
Unfortunately, if you are looking to order a gluten free pizza, most restaurant kitchens are going to be a cross contamination debacle. Just like Domino’s gluten free pizza, I image most restaurants are going to have flour all over the place!
Your best bet when eating gluten free is to make the pizza at home or grab a good frozen gluten free pizza.
Zeia Foods makes the best pizza crust I’ve tried. You can read more about it here. You can get it by delivery only, but it’s worth keeping these on hand in your freezer for family pizza night. Hands down they are the best.
Another option is to make your own pizza crust. There are a lot of good recipes out there. Personally, I think mine is the best! It takes some work, but it’s worth it!
