My 3 year old PA son has always enjoyed Pizza Hut Pizza and has never had any reactions until recently. The last two times we ate the pizza he developed hives on his cheeks and chin. I was wondering if any one else has experienced reactions with Pizza Hut. I have called their 800 number 2x in the last month and both times I was told that they have no nut products that could have contaminated the pizza as well as they haven't changed any ingredients either. I would love to hear from anyone positive or negative so that I can explore others reasons for his hives. thanks

Hi Melissa. My pa son and our family have eaten at Pizza Hut too many times to even count. He has never had a reaction of any kind. That's the problem with this allergy--you just never know! Deanna

Before eating at that Pizza Hut again (or any for that matter), ask them not only is the pizza nut-free but what veg. oil spray do they use on the pizza pans. My husband took my p.a. child to a Pizza Hut once and asked that very question. Their answer was normally we don't but we have used peanut oil spray before. Yikes! Needless, to say, they didn't eat there and we are so, so careful about ordering pizza. We prefer Papa John's Pizza because they have an ingredient list, mailed it to us, and even called to follow-up to be sure that we received it. We do not eat at a restaurant that has peanut oil in their kitchen.

I'm not sure if your son is allergic to anything else other than peanuts but I know the one near us also has a salad bar. I know they have sesame seeds on the salad bar. Maybe someone that handeled those also worked with your pizza. Who knows?

I haven't been to pizza hut in a long time, and never with my PA daughter (not on purpose, it has just turned out that way).
Anyway, don't a lot of them have an ice cream sundae bar too? That could have peanuts as well.

Thanks for your responses. I plan on calling the location this afternoon and asking about their sprays. This is a carry-out/delivery location only so they don't have salad/dessert bars. THANKS

Do you have the contact number for Papa John's? The local one says they do not know what is in their pizza that they get everything from a main place. We have never had their pizza.There is a new one near my daughter's school that gives "Deals" to the students for parties and such. I would love to be able to check it out.

Pizza Hut is our "home away from home"! We always eat or get take-out there with our PA daughter! We know the manager very well at our location and he is aware of her allergy and assures us there is no offending allergen. He said he would even "go the distance" and create a special pizza for anyone with allergies to anything. They also have a website with all ingredients of everything listed and we check that often. The website is:[url][/url].

Any Pizza place that offer the famous "chicken Pesto" leaves room for cross contamination with other red sauce pizzas. Although each time I order I MAKE A HUGE deal about this, you still just never know....a pan, a knife, or the same oven could have pesto residue. And well....Pesto was my favorite reaction causer....PROM night with PESTO = emergency room.

We just got back from a 3 day vacation. On
Saturday night we had Pizza Hut pizza
delivered to our hotel room. Our PA son, who
just turned 5, had some for the first time.
He ate almost a whole slice (had filled up
on snacks before!). No reaction at all.
Issa, if you called to ask about the spray,
what was their response?
Linda-Jo thanks for the website.
jdickson, does Pizza Hut have chicken pesto?
