I've been GF for almost a year, make my own bread, have tried lots of recipes - some good, some bad but what I REALLY miss is pizza. I've tried them ALL - some are OK but most are nothing like real pizza. The absolute only one that I would say is just like real pizza is Your Pie but it's only in FL, SC, GA and TN, very limited. So, my question is: Is there ANY pill that will allow me to have pizza once in a while? Thanks!

Do you have celiac disease? If so, the answer is no.

Are you intolerant of gluten? If so, the answer is - enjoy your pizza and suffer through the consequences.

Are you not sure gluten is the culprit? Try diamine oxidase, which is an enzyme that helps digest foods high in histamine (gluten is one).

Doc says not Celiac - if I have gluten by accident (which is a VERY small amount) I have bad pains and bathroom visits. So there's a relation of histamine which I think is an allergy thing and gluten type problems? I have posted on the GERD forum that studies are being done that PPI's are actually bad for us because we need acid to digest protein which of course gluten is. So many things related - hard to know what to do?

The connection between gut reactions to histamines in food is not the same as allergic reactions to food.

I have used diamine oxidase to be able to drink red wine without an instant headache. It worked well for me. But my reaction to gluten is to have diarrhea and cramping, which does not seem to fit with the reaction to histamine in bread discussed on those websites, so I haven't tried it.

If you don't have celiac disease, then theoretically there is no damage being done to your gut by eating gluten. Although the post-gluten misery can be pretty bad. The last time I accidentally ate a significant amount of gluten it took 3 weeks to completely clear my gut. Not going to do that again!
