    I had the thin rice crust pizza and it was great! I've resolved that I will never have a pizza experience like I did before I had to go gf so my expectations are different. I couldn't eat the cheese bc I'm also dairy free, so I loaded up with good toppings. I had sausage, garlic, spinach, black olives and mushrooms. It was literally the best gf pizza I've had since eating gf. Obviously, pizza with no cheese is lacking so I got some olive oil, sprinkled salt in it and dipped my pizza in and it was perfect! This restaurant is also highly recommend def by locals. The non-gf pizza is incredible says my pizza deprived husband! It is made deep dish and the sauce is on top of the impossibly long and tantalizing cheese. They may make the gf pizza like this too, I just don't know since I can't have dairy.

    First off, best crust ever in a gluten free pizza. So crunchy and I like its not a greasy type pizza. Try the "Lou" style on gluten free (I leave off the spinach and love it). The management at the Park Ridge location are fantastic and always accommodating. I love how they always remember last order and ask if you want that. makes the ordering so simple.

    This is my absolute favorite gf pizza! Amazing buttery crust. Just note that the small (which is the only size it comes in) is only big enough for one person. Awesome price too. Way cheaper than a lot of places.

    Love Lou's! Seriously wonderful pizza. While they do have a gluten free alternative, don't bother if you have Celiac's Disease. Cross-contamination is a very real concern here and if you react to that, resign yourself to not eating here.

    I have ordered their crustless pizza every Friday for the last year. We have pizza crust from Senza Bakery that we store in the freezer and put our Lou Malnati's pizza on. Not once, have we gotten sick.

    My friend and I had pizza on August 24, 2013 while each of us had separately come into Chicago. This pizzeria was recommended by a local and was so good. It's a really popular place, be sure to tell the person where you order it needs to be GF and also your server. I thought staff where knowledgeable and knew not to ask me if I wanted the house bread. The advance ordering before sitting down saves time, we were in and out within an hour.

    Their gluten free pizza is delicious. I ate it and didn't feel like I was missing out on anything. I am referring to the actual gluten free crust pizza and not the big sausage patty they use for a crust and was formerly known as the Atkins Diet option.

    Ask for the gluten free menu, there is a chicken dish, fish dish a GF dough pizza, a sausage party crust pizza (I had this and i didn't miss having a dough crust one bit, it was bursting with flavor and has that traditional Chicago sausage and pizza flavor) there were several salads to choose from, the house dressing made this my new favorite restaurant salad. Wait staff was knowledgable and made special care to prevent cross contamination.

    Fantastic GF pizza! It doesn't hold heavy toppings very well, though. But totally worth every penny- wish the delivered to where I live but I don't mind the drive to get it.

    They have a delicious Gf pizza but isn't something you can have too often! Instead of a normal bready crust there is a sausage crust. They just spread Italian sausage in the pan and then cover it in sauce and cheese and call it pizza. It is yummy but you can feel you arteries hard as you eat it.

    Lou Malnati's *finally* has a real GF crust -- not just the sausage "crust" they've been offering us for years. I tried it tonight and thought it was very good. The crusts are being sourced from Deerfield's bakery which I understand has a completely separate facility for making their GF baked goods. Once at Lou Malnati's, the pizzas are cooked in the same stove as all the other pizzas, but I spoke to staff and was assured that they are taking measures to keep things safe. After eating the pizza tonight, I am not noticing any contamination symptoms even though I am extremely sensitive. So far so good. Recommend!

    This review based on take out at Carol Stream location: Small is only size choice. It is very good GF crust. Maybe most close to original of any pizza place I've found. Price is also good -- small is under $10. BUT NOTE THAT IT IS SMALL. Not exactly deep dish and very light. When i pocked up my box I knew i was not carrying enough for two people. Two pizza will serve three people. I can eat a small by myself even if I shouldn't. Among the best GF pizza I've ever tasted. Just make sure you order enough.

    Choices are crustless pizzza with a sausage base or gluten free crust and your choice of toppings. Crust was very good. If ordering with no cheese ask for extra sauce. Very long wait but it was Friday and there is a convention in town as well as football fans. Husband had regular deepdish and was disappointed. Was concerned about contamination since it was ago busy but seems all is well.

    Crustless pizza is available. The "crust" is made from sausage. I loved it! I did have some slight discomfort from the cross contamination, but I would do it again! I am so glad to know that I don't have to give up my favorite pizza.
