Go on, treat yourself


What better way to reward yourself for getting through a WHOLE Monday at work, than with a little pizza delivery.

But Clara, you can't pizza?  Yes, this is true. I developed a mild tolerance to gluten in my twenties but I still occasionally dream of my uni days when ordering a Dominos pepperoni pizza three times a week was deemed totally acceptable.

If you have an intolerance too you'll know how ridiculously behind the UK take-away market is in terms of catering for us "fussy eaters" (I detest the this term...i'm not a fussy eater, these foods make me ILL, grrr). Head to New York and it's no problem.  But here in London take-away pizza was off the menu for me. Until now.  That's right people, Dominos is now offering GLUTEN-FREE pizza bases - the first pizza chain to do so in the UK and Coeliac UK accredited, no less!  YIPPEE!  That's right you foodie freaks, we too can now STUFF OUR FACES with delicious pizza delivered straight to our door in 20 minutes* (*delivery times may vary, clearly the new Dominos pizza in Balham were out to impress :-)).
THE VERDICT
Base: it tasted pretty much like the real deal, somewhere in-between a deep pan and a thin crust (Mr Developer...please, please, please can you develop a thin crust gluten-free pizza.  I will be forever in your debt)
Toppings: excellent pepperoni coverage on the PP.  The veg-o-Roma was a little disappointing but the sun-dried tomato and garlic base sauce was lovely. Hot n Spicy verdict from the Bot, "yeah, yeah, it's good".
Size: Gluten-free bases are currently only available in small and will feed one moderately hungry person well.  But three between two would be ideal :-)
Website: We had a few issues trying to select the gluten-free base and the signposting could be clearer, but once we figured things out ordering was pretty straight-forward

Overall, the gluten-free pizza was pretty good and i'll definitely be returning to Dominos for round two asap.

Dominos...you get the Clazzerati thumps up.  Well done you.
DISCLOSURE: Clazzerati received free pizzas in exchange for this post.  But the views expressed are all mine and I always give an honest review.
