Domino’s Gluten Free Crust Review: Is It Good?

Last Updated on July 2, 2022

Today’s post is going to be a Domino’s gluten free crust review. Domino’s is one of my favorite fast-food pizza places, but let’s be honest – gluten-free food can be a minefield. Not only is it difficult to find in fast food places, but even when it is available, the taste is often not that good. It’s frustrating, but we all know that gluten-free bread-based items usually have a different texture. Domino’s has a gluten-free crust available – but is it any good? I’m here to tell you my thoughts, along with everything else you need to know about their pizza crust. Let’s take a look.

What Is Domino’s?

I highly doubt that Domino’s needs an introduction. But if you’re unfamiliar with Domino’s, it’s a fast-food pizza chain that has been around for over 60 years. Domino’s is available across the globe! In fact, it has over 17,000 locations globally.

While they’re undoubtedly most famous for their pizzas, they also offer pasta, chicken wings, sub sandwiches, and desserts. Their cookies are absolutely incredible!

What Is Domino’s Gluten Free Crust?

Domino’s gluten-free crust is a pizza base that has been around for a few years now. It is completely free from any gluten and the crust itself is 100% safe. They are currently only available in one size, which is 10″ and unfortunately, are usually more expensive than gluten-containing pizzas. You can find out more about Dominos in your country here.

Ingredients In Domino’s Gluten Free Crust

You may be curious as to what the ingredients are in Domino’s gluten-free crust. The ingredients are:

  • white rice flour
  • brown rice flour
  • potato flour
  • water
  • olive oil
  • yeast
  • honey
  • salt

…as you can see, not a trace of gluten in sight! What is also great about this pizza crust is that it’s dairy-free too! This means that it’s suitable for a range of dietary lifestyles.

Nutritional Information Of Domino’s Gluten Free Crust

One of the most popular pizza choices at Domino’s is their pepperoni pizza. For this reason, I thought I’d share the nutritional value of their pepperoni pizza, on a gluten-free crust. Each 10″ pizza contains the following:

  • Calories: 990
  • Fat: 48g
  • Carbs: 108g
  • Dietary Fiber: 6g
  • Sugar: 12g
  • Protein: 30g
  • Sodium: 2340mg

It’s worth noting that takeaway pizza is not healthy, as you can probably see! So be sure to eat Domino’s in moderation, as part of a healthy, balanced diet.

Is Domino’s Gluten Free Crust Safe For Celiacs?

While the crust itself is completely safe and free from any gluten, as soon as it’s opened in the kitchen – it becomes a bit of a cross-contamination nightmare! There is so much gluten in pizza kitchens, and while they’ll try their best to keep your order as safe as possible, there’s a high chance it’ll come into contact with gluten. For this reason, celiacs are advised not to eat pizza at Domino’s.

Domino’s Gluten Free Crust Review: How Does It Taste?

The first thing that’s worth mentioning is that it’s relatively small – and expensive! It’s a thin-crust pizza (which is my favorite anyway). And I have to say, it doesn’t look all too different from their standard pizzas…bar the size! The crust seems to go much crispier around the edges than gluten pizza, but it is slightly chewier and doughier in the middle. The flavor is quite sweet, but not overpowering. With sauce, cheese, and other toppings – I really enjoyed it.
