I have a good local teener friend who works at Domino's. I asked him to check into the pizza and all their products about peanuts, since both my kids are PA. He checked every ingredient list they have at their store, all their oils... everything and even called the Home Office and asked, and swears that (at least for sure, his store) is 100% peanut & peanut oil free.

I was very thorough with him explaining the allergy, gave him the list of FAAN no-no's and alternately labeled ingredients, and he came back a few days later saying he can certify that his store is A OK for my kids.. and we've had NO problems with them.

Just thought I'd let y'all know. Have a Happy and SAFE holidays!

Nice to have this confirmed. We have checked with the central distribution center in Connecticut, which distributes ingredients to Dominos in at least some of the New England area (I'm not sure exactly what parts -- but they cover our area of western Mass.) and they also said no peanuts -- but it's been about half a year since we checked. In the meantime, DS has been greatly enjoying Dominos pizza without problem.

Have also posted this on Restaurants page:
This may be irrelevant to US readers as I live in Ireland, however thought I should post after reading posts about Domino's Pizza. My boyfiend enquired about nuts/peanuts when ordering Domino's in around September 2001 and was told 'no nuts' by the manager. (I must add I had eaten there many times before that but that was before I learned how serious PA is and that I should be more careful).
Anyway, had no problems with their food. Then, with the introduction of the Euro (January 2002 for all you non-euroites) Domino's hiked up their prices and reprinted their menus etc. and lo and behold, there appeared a warning (in tiny letters at the very bottom of the menu) 'All our products may contain nut derivatives'. This despite the fact that a few months before I had been assured there were 'no nuts'. Needless to say, I have not eaten there since.
I hope this post does not cause any undue alarm - for all I know the situation could be completely different in the States. Also, I don't know why I didn't post sooner - but it's only just occurred to me. But I just thought I would bring it to yur attention.
Take care
Michelle

Thanks for the heads up. It certainly bears looking into.

We ran into this last night too! First night of the promotion. I was told that the promotion was scheduled to last until sometime mid October.

I just got off the phone with our local Dominoes and they said that they use separate pans and cutters for the Oreos pizzas and I asked him - isn't there for potential for them to accidentally use the wrong cutter - and he said they have different color handles. I think I was talking with the manager and he said he would look into the matter. As much as he tried to reassure me that everything would be kept separate and not touch - they do make the pizzas there and they are cooked in the same oven. I don't feel comfortable with that although some may.
Its good to hear the promotion only will last for a couple of months. Its one of the "safe" restaurants I felt comfortable ordering from up until now.
I guess we won't be ordering from there until the Oreo pizzas are gone. Bummer. I plan to call corporate on Monday.

I read another post recently that said Dominos often has promotional items that say 'may contain' and that they (the poster) call and ask if they've had any such promotions in the previous 30 days. What a pain! We have had Dominos with no trouble but I think for us, it'll be easier to just stick with Papa Johns. They say right on their website that they don't sell or make anything with peanuts or tree nuts. I hate calling places to ask because around here it seems like no one has ever heard of food allergies.
