Special diets can wreak havoc on those nights you just can’t bear to cook and are looking for a simple solution for dinner. These nights don’t happen often for us, but when they do it’s lovely to be able to click over to the food of your choice, place an order online, and have it at your door on demand. Which is why I was happy to hear that Domino’s is now carrying a gluten-free pizza crust.
Of course, Domino’s is quick to point out that they cannot guarantee a gluten-free crust free of cross-contamination risk, so it’s not appropriate for those with celiac or severe wheat allergies but generally safe for those of us who just have to avoid ingesting the wheat to avoid problems. The only size it comes in is small, too, but about there is where the caveats stop.
For folks on a low-FODMAP diet the rest of the ingredients might also cause issues, so make sure you check out the full ingredient lists available on the Domino’s website.
I opted for ham, pineapple, spinach, and roasted red bell peppers on my pizza with shredded provolone cheese. The first time I looked into ordering from them I could have sworn I noticed something about their regular cheese bl
end that put it in the potentially-High-FODMAP range, so I opted out of the usual cheese and requested the provolone only, just to be on the safe side.The crust itself was tasty, if a little chewy, and I very much enjoyed my first not-made-by-me pizza since this whole FODMAP journey began. While the small pizza didn’t offer much in the way of leftovers, it was probably for the best as by the time I got to the last slice it was starting to get a little soggy. (Could have been the pineapple, all things considered, but I suppose I won’t know for sure until I order another one without it, right?)
It’s nice when the big companies notice and try to do something to help out those of us who otherwise wouldn’t be ordering from them. Sure, they are (ultimately) motivated by the corporate bottom line, but whatever the reason I’m glad to have another option for those busy nights and/or pizza cravings. I can only hope that other companies will follow Domino’s lead.
I was not compensated for this review in any way, shape, or form. It is based purely on my own experience ordering a pizza like anyone else would.
