after all the hype and publicity we tried the Ashford branch of Pizza Express, they were very attentive, I ordered gf pizza and a gf beer, everything seemed ok until we left and shortly afterwards I realised I had been glutened.
I have been in touch with Pizza Express via their web site and so far no one has even acknowledged my message.
Now after all the publicity and the three years in making sure that staff are trained, I am just unsure as to what went wrong, during the wait for the meal I noticed that the chef spread the tomato base from a large bowl with a ladle, didn't see mine being prepared but I wondered if this could be the cause or the fact that he used ungloved hands to put all the ingredients onto the top of all the pizzas I saw being made. My partner ordered a calzone and both our pizzas were served on the black plates, when I queried this I was told 'they are washed you know'.
took a few days to start to feel normal again, don't think I will be risking that again for a long time
