I love pizza but cannot eat normal ones as the overload of both dairy and gluten tips me over the edge and I end up in severe pain, as does Daughter No2, and so I thought I would have to give it a try, in the interest of scientific research you understand.
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 what is in their G/F pizza?
Accredited by Coeliac UK, the national charity for people with coeliac disease, Domino’s new gluten-free pizza will be available nationwide for delivery and collection orders from November 19, 2012. While some gluten-free products attract a premium, Domino’s gluten-free pizza will be charged at the same price as its other pizzas.
Following numerous requests from the general public, Domino’s has spent the past four years searching the UK and overseas for a suitable supplier for the gluten-free base. After rigorous testing, the company has found a gluten-free base which meets Domino’s high standards for both quality and taste.
The new pizza base will also be suitable for those who are allergic to dairy or lactose intolerant, and as all Domino’s pizzas are made to order from scratch, it can be ordered without cheese to provide a dairy-free pizza.
This base only comes in a small size so they are not ideal for a family. But hopefully this will change when they become more popular.

We had gone on line to order up our meal, this was a quick and easy process. Some of the special deals were for collection only so we did not use pizza delivery One of the toppings we chose was not gluten free and the store had phones us as this had flagged up at their end, I was impressed by that.
We were eating the food within five minutes of leaving the restaurant, but our first finding was it was cold.
We found the base was a bit sweeter, drier and heavier than a normal base, but very pleasant and very edible. I think this is a brilliant addition to their range, and always remember that for people who cannot eat gluten they have nothing to compare it to as they do not know any different. Their four years of searching for the correct pizza base has certainly paid off.

Certainly in the twenty four after eating these pizzas I have suffered no ill effects a I normally would expect too. No pain, no runny tummy, so they get a thumbs up from me, daughter and granddaughter.
I cannot fault the pizzas ( apart from being nearly cold) but I would like to ask them to consider doing G/F in other sizes, or allowing small pizzas in with the BOGOF deals. Seems strange that you can only get a medium or large for free and not a small one.
I was allowed to choose food of my choice to include the G/F pizza in return for this honest review.
