That happened. And by "that", I mean the photo of the Domino's Gluten Free Pizza that accompanies this post. It's a 10 inch pie and it all went in my mouth in one sitting and was DELICIOUS (yes, I'm yelling that).
There has been controversy about Domino's decision to introduce a "gluten free" product that actually makes no claims to be safe for people avoiding gluten. Say what? I know it makes no sense. Basically, it's made with gluten free ingredients but is assembled in the same kitchens where the rest of their pizzas are made. Cross-contamination is a given.
So, why did I order this? I was curious. I generally don't worry about cross-contamination. As long as I don't order food that explicitly contains wheat, I'm fine. I don't get digestive distress at all (even with large doses) and only get the brain fog/moodiness/exhaustion when I eat an actual serving of an offending food. Who the heck knows what's happening under the hood, but as far as I can tell, minute amounts don't phase me. Considering I thoughtfully source and cook the majority of the food I eat on a daily basis, I am not too worried about the things I cannot reasonably control. Thus, the decision to order said pie.
That all being said, I do not support the business decision Domino's made to develop a product that is unsafe for its intended market (duh!) Also, I promptly passed out for two hours roughly 15 minutes after ingesting the pizza. I am not used to that amount of carbs at one time, so it's not surprising. All in all, it was tasty but not at all a healthy choice for me. It will not be a regular part of my life.
I will be trying out the Domestic Man's take on gluten free pizza soon. It is also carb-laden but at least I am clear on all the ingredients and will have to earn it by physically making it myself! I also don't plan to eat an entire pie by myself again (progress!)
Am I the only one with this gluten free pizza obsession? Have you found a good alternative to hit that pizza spot?
