The gluten free diet is taking off all around the world, it seems. People are keen to try a gluten free diet and see how they feel, which I think is great for our range of foods in the supermarket and restaurants.
The United States of America seems to be no exception here, with a major pizza chain, Domino’s Pizza releasing a gluten free crust pizza last Monday (7th of May, 2012).
Unlike the gluten free pizza base in Australia the one they’ve sourced over there seems to be soy free as well. I do know, however, that soy oil is used on the pans at Domino’s, Eagle Boys and Pizza Hut at least here in Australia so I’m assuming that this is the case over there as well. Thus, it probably is not an option for those on a soy-free diet.
There is also the concern of gluten cross-contamination. How careful are they? Have their staff been trained?
I’m sure this aspect of things will improve given time. I just wish they’d get rid of that darn soybean oil! Surely if they could make the effort to offer a gluten free crust, changing the cooking oil should be easy enough shouldn’t it?? Come on, Domino’s!
Do you live in the USA? Have you tried a Domino’s gluten free crust pizza? Let us all know your thoughts.
