Gluten Free Pizza Delivery? Just Call Donatos!
Just a few weeks ago, I sat in my office with Laura and told her one of the things I miss the most about living gluten-free is the ease of just being able to order a pizza. For once, like the old days, I want to call a pizza place and have them deliver a safe, gluten-free pizza. It seems just a few days after this conversation, Donatos Pizza emailed us to work with them on launching their new gluten-free pizza with Udi’s gluten-free pizza crust.
I went to a meeting at their facility here in Columbus and actually was able to meet the chef that helped create this line for them. Her son and husband have a gluten sensitivity and their family is gluten-free. She presented the idea to Donatos and they decided to run with it. Now, here is the best part…
The take and bake frozen pizza’s are on Udi’s gluten-free crust and created in a dedicated gluten-free facility. However, Donatos offers two different ways to get their gluten-free pizzas.
If you go to the store or order one for delivery, you can get one made and cooked for you in the store. However, this option is typically only good for people with a sensitivity because there is a high risk of cross contamination. I mean it is a pizza place! They can’t be sure 100% of all surface areas are perfectly clean and sanitized so they want to make sure people are aware of that before ordering.
But, what if I told you there is a second option. A better option. An option every celiac has been waiting for….
Picture this…. Your family is over for a party and everyone wants pizza. You decide to call Donatos and place an order. While you are on the phone with them, you walk over to your oven and preheat it to 425 degrees. Then you order a FROZEN gluten-free pizza – free from cross contamination and cooked in a dedicated facility and when it arrives, you pop it in the oven for 11-14 minutes and are able to enjoy a pizza night with your family? You can order a cheese or pepperoni frozen pizza! Now, because of cross contamination issues, they cannot bring you extra toppings to put on your frozen pizza, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add your own at your house!
Well, the wait is over folks and this is now a reality! You can now have this pizza delivered to your house and safely enjoy it with your family!!!
If you are in the frozen food section of your grocery story, look for the Sonoma Flatbreads by Donatos. They have a gluten-free line also and are just as good as the Donatos gluten free take and bakes. We found them at Raisin Rack and Kroger grocery stores but they are quickly expanding, so be sure to check your frozen food section next time you are at the grocery store. You can also contact them online and see where you can find one near you!
Donatos gave me one of each pizza to try & I must tell you they blow the competition out of the water as far as gluten-free pizza. Especially the Donatos gluten-free take and bake. If you want something that tastes like regular pizza, then this is the one for you. Make sure you check with your local Donatos before ordering to ensure they have them in stock!
If you live around central Ohio and want to try them, Donatos is sponsoring my BlogDay Party on August 29th! Click here for more information or to RSVP!
