We have eaten at Pizza Hut(Canada) many times without incident. My daughter (PA) has eaten the pizza, salads and dessert pizza.

Pizza Hut Canada - Just wanted to let you know that the new Cinnaring at Pizza Hut is also safe for PA/TNA individuals.
Here's the ingredients that Pizza Hut sent to me.
Dough: Salt, sugar, yeast (saccharomyces cerevisiae), wheat flour, monoglycerides (vegetable origin), diacetyl tartaric esters of mono-di glycerides of fatty acids (vegetable origin), ascorbic acid, fungal amylases (derived from A. niger and A. oryzae)
String Icing: Icing Sugar (contains corn starch), water, sugar, maltodextrin, modified corn starch, guar gum, citric acid, agar, potassium sorbate, ammonium alginate, calcium alginate, colour, artificial flavour.
Cinnamon Topping: Sugar, brown sugar, spice, hydrogenated soybean oil, caramel colour, molasses, flavour, maltodextrin, calcium silicate.
The dipping sauce, which comes in the middle of the ring, contains the following:
Carmel Topping:
Sugar/glucose-fructose, water, modified milk ingredients, corn starch, salt, disodium phosphate, potassium sorbate, mono and diglycerides, xanthan gum, artificial flavour, colour.
I didn't see anything in there that was a concern to me - except the length of the list - but that's a different issue!
They also told me that the only thing on their menu with PN or TN is the Turtle Cake, which comes frozen to the stores and has pecans in it.
Anyway, it all looks good to me [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

SF, excellent post! I'm really interested in seeing what further response you get from them. I have dealt with Pizza Hut in Stayner and Belleville, Ontario and both of them have assured me that they are PA safe. This is where the schools always order their pizzas
from for pizza day so Jesse has been able to partake in pizza day at school and because of this knowledge, I've stuck to Pizza Hut mostly for home consumption as well.
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

There is a thread somewhere about this. I am shellfish allergic, and I have had two minor reactions from Pizza Hut. There is a processed on warning (I believe it's that and not a may contain warning) on their website.
I am also sesame allergic, if that helps. I did post about this also on the Allergic Living website on their shellfish board, and you can see responses to my post there.

Yes, thanks to McCobbre's warning about shellfish cross-contamination of their sauce, I stopped getting their pizza. I knew I was having minor reactions, but couldn't believe it could be the pizza!
Under "Ingredients" their sauce did not say anything about the shellfish. But when you go to the "Allergy" section of the website, it lists Shellfish under the sauce. (I believe it's a "made in same facility as"-type problem.)
Good luck,

We ate at a Pizza Hut a few weeks ago & it was fine. In fact we've eaten at several in NJ & Pennsylvania; our PN son sticking to pizza (no salad bar). They do use soybean oil in their pizza. Not an issue for us but may be for some.

We safely ate it on a trip thru NY state. I read the ingredients on everything they make pizza with and spray the pans with. We did fine. I don't know how universal the Pizza Hut ingredients are...whether they get ingredients from same distributor,etc...so I will go thru the same process at each one we try. I hope it goes well.

I will say Pizza Hut has been hit and miss with me. I forgot about Pizza Hut and ate some pizza at work a few weeks ago and realized after two slices that I'd had problems with PH. But I didn't have problems that afternoon. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
But the two reactions I had--those were definitely attributed to the pizza. I had had nothing else. And when I saw their website, I wasn't surprised.
So it may not be a problem for you, or it might--depending on various factors. It is pizza that I do try to avoid--and will be more careful at work. It was a different PH--about 40 miles away from mine at home, so I don't know if that makes a difference.

Does Pizza Hut still serve their dessert pizzas that have nuts on them? We stopped using PHut years ago when they had these dessert pizzas -- cross contamination in ovens, counters, and cutting utensils.
Just a heads up to check on this first!

Fortunately, the Pizza Hut dessert pizzas in [b]Canada[/b] never contained nuts. I ate them many times in the past. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
