Help with retrieving datetime field in PHP from MySQL

Hi, my MySQL table has a field called submitted_date that is a "datetime" type.  My problem is the web host's time is 1 hour ahead of our local time, so it's storing it one hour ahead of the time the user actually submitted it.  I called them and they said I can't do anything in terms of modifying a php.ini file to fix it.

In my PHP file, when the user submits the form, I set the "submitted_date" field to now() when it's inserted into MySQL.  I retrieve the date using this line:

SELECT name,  DATE_FORMAT(submitted_date, '%M %e  %l:%i%p') as newdate.....

It then shows the time as being 1 hour ahead of the actual submitted time.  I know there must be an easy way to fix this so it shows the true time it was submitted by the user, but I can't figure it out. Thank you.
