Papa John’s Recommends People With Celiac Disease Don’t Eat Their Gluten-Free Pizza

By Carly Ledbetter  Papa John’s recently added gluten-free pizza options to its menu in certain test markets, but it’s not actually for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

In fact, the pizza franchise recommends that anyone with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance not eat its pizza made with “Gluten-Free Crust with Ancient Grains.”

The crust’s description on the brand’s website even comes with a disclaimer, saying pizzas made with the special crust could be “exposed to gluten during the ordinary preparation process.”

“Although Papa John’s Ancient Grains Gluten-Free Crust is gluten-free and Papa John’s employs procedures to prevent contact with gluten, it is possible that a pizza with Papa John’s Ancient Grains Gluten-Free Crust is exposed to gluten during the ordinary preparation process,” the company said in a statement to CNBC.

Papa John’s isn’t the first national pizza chain to deal with the complexities of making gluten-free pizza in a gluten-filled kitchen environment. Domino’s began offering gluten-free pizza options in 2012 after consulting with the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, but its offerings also came with a catch.
