Review: Domino’s Gluten-Free Pizza - Celiac Disease

Review: Domino’s Gluten-Free Pizza

Just over a week ago, I shared some information related to testing that had been performed on some samples of Domino’s gluten-free pizza.  I posted a poll to find out what our readers thought about the new information.  The results have been tallied and can be viewed below:

Yes, the results from the sampling convinced me to give it a try. 28.57%  (40 votes)

No way. 33.57%  (47 votes)

Not sure. 20%  (28 votes)

Yes. I have tried the pizza with no ill effects. 17.86%  (25 votes)

I found the results interesting – 46% of those polled were willing to try or had tried the pizza, while only 33% said they would not.  Personally, I was still in the “Not Sure” camp up until yesterday.  Jon was unaware that Domino’s was now offering a gluten-free pizza until he overheard me talking to a friend about it.  He said that he wanted to try it.  I explained all of the current information regarding the gluten-free pizza as well as the possibility of cross-contamination, and he still wanted to give it a try.  I decided to leave the choice up to him, as he is 16 years old and knows how sick gluten makes him.  As I expressed earlier this week, we don’t dine at 100% gluten-free establishments, as there aren’t any where we live, so I felt okay with him trying the pizza.


The gluten-free pizza comes in one size only – small (10-inches) for $10.  The employee taking the order knew what we were talking about and Jon was excited to be getting delivery pizza, just like everyone else.  I had a rough time getting it away from him long enough to snap this picture!  He thoroughly enjoyed this pizza with no ill effects whatsoever.  I did take a small bite and was very impressed with the crust texture and flavor.  Jon now says that he wants to eat the pizza as many times as he can before I change my mind about letting him eat it!

Dining out with Celiac Disease can be risky.  Each individual is responsible for making his own personal choice when it comes to the decision of dining out with the risk of cross-contamination.  With that in mind – to be clear – the purpose of this post is to share our experience, not to guarantee the safety of Domino’s gluten-free pizza.

  1. My sister-in-law tried the Domino’s pizza crust this weekend and she did in fact get contaminated. It’s sad that they aren’t consistent with their practices. I know my husband would love to feel normal by ordering pizza delivery. I’m so glad you guys had a great experience though!

    It’s good to know that many people are able to enjoy this pizza without getting sick.
    The launching of this pizza has brought a lot of press about the challenges of living gluten free. The reality of it is that anywhere you dine that offers a gluten free menu presents a risk of contamination, so I agree that it is a matter of personal choice and responsibility.

    I also tried the Dominos Pizza last week and had no ill effects! Yay!!! The crust was good and I ordered online and it’s really nice to order pizza for the fam and ME! Will definitely order again.

    I couldn’t resist the urge to try. I have been so frustrated with the lack of deliverable GF foods, that I had to see if it was ok for me. After reading the info you posted over a week ago, I gave in to my desire and tried it. OMG!! No issues, great taste, and I was so excited I have had it 2 times since. I have had it in 2 different cities now, as we tried it on a weekend getaway, too. While I am frustrated, as others are, with their inability to commit to guaranteeing GF pizza, I will keep eating it until I get a contaminated one!!

    50off if you use that coupon today (fathers day) you can get one for half off… i tried it, its pretty descent, didn’t get sick either.

    My daughter and her friends ordered Dominos GF pizza. My daughter didn’t get sick and her non-celiac friends really enjoyed it, too!

  7. Jennifer says:

    I have tried the dominos pizza and LOVED it! sooo good! i don’t have celiac (just wheat intolerance), so i don’t need to worry so much about cross contamination. i totally understand why some of you are fearful of trying it. the people who work at my local dominos were happy that i was soooo excited about trying this pizza and remembered me when i came back the second time. maybe if you get to know the employees, they could be SUPER careful making your pizza? just a thought. 🙂

    oh! one reason pizza is tough for me is my extreme egg allergy. dominos is only the second place in town that has an egg free GF pizza…hence my almost doing a cartwheel at the store. hee hee!

    My daughter tried pepperoni gluten free pizza last nite. Sick today. Either the pepperoni or the crosscontamination issue.

    The man putting our pizzas in boxes said he would put them in the car for me. I asked him if the one gluten free one was pretty much 100% gluten free. He said, “Well, what do you mean by that?.” I said, well, did you use a separate paddle and pizza cutter for it? He said no. I said I have two in the family that get nauseous, dizzy, and diarrhea if they get gluten contaminated food, and he said, “Well, what they don’t know can’t hurt them, right?”

    I left but was pretty upset. Do I tell my two girls that their pizza was possibly contaminated? I called a Dominos on the other side of town and asked for a gluten free pizza to pick up fast, after dropping off the other pizzas for the family party were were having. . I asked Domino’s to be sure to be careful about contamination and even he asked what I meant. I asked if it could be cut with a separate pizza cutter, not one used on all pizzas. He said he would make sure they did that. When I got there, I asked if they had used a separate paddle, and he checked and they told him that since they were asked about the cutter, they did use a clean paddle too. I asked, don’t they always use a separate paddle? and he said no. How disappointing, Domino’s!
