got soooo sick
I've eaten at PPC in the past, and enjoyed my experience. However, since learning I had Celiac's disease, I've really struggled to find places that I feel comfortable eating at. I attempted to come to PPC in West Jordan this evening, and while posted clearly that adding Gluten Free crust to the buffet cost an extra $2, they fail to mention that on top of that you have to pay for any pizza you want to order as well. This means I was actually going to be paying $16 (for a small personal pizza) on top of the price of the buffet (plus the $2 for gluten free charge which didn't seem to actually be getting me anything), which I was already paying for (and couldn't eat because of the gluten). So, instead of a nice evening enjoying pizza, I took my family elsewhere. I was severely disappointed that while offering a gluten free pizza, i could not enjoy more than just a personal pizza because of the outrageous amount for a small pizza. With clearly marked prices, I would have at least known what I was getting into. The girl at the counter was probably new, but hasn't been trained on how to handle the register yet, and really just not as polite as she ought to have been. Thank you for offering gluten free, but please fix your customer service and make it absolutely clear how the gluten free thing works with pricing. I can't justify paying for one little pizza for myself, for the price of three normal buffets. This location has lost my business for poor customer service and now knowing I need a lot of extra cash to eat here for just myself.
This location seriously sucks. There was so much grease on the pizza it was pooling and soaked through the crust. I couldn't bring myself to even touch it! The other location is amazing.
The food was ok. I did not get cross contaminated but have had better pizza. The salad bar was a mess and I had to have a worker come and clean it out so I could fix my salad.
Good gf pizza and pasta. The servers are very polite. Salad bar is a bit skimpy, but everything else is great. Best pizza I have had, outside making our own.
Cheap place to get GF pizza. Just add $2 per pizza to buffet price and get gluten free pasta. Plus salad bar.
Great GF pizza. Nice menu with a list of Gluten Free toppings and CERTIFIED GF toppings. This is a pizza buffet, but they brought us our own whole pizza. Plenty big enough for two people. I can't believe he rang the price up right... A gf pizza and two drinks for $6?! Good pizza, good service.
I was so excited when my friend told me about Pizza Pie Café. Her mom has Celiac's and she loves to eat there. It is now my favorite place to get pizza. You can either pizza to stay or to go. I'm not sure about the pasta, that may be available only if you stay at the restaurant. All the servers are very friendly. They even told me I can make my pizza half desert and half regular pizza. If you do stay, there is a bit of a wait for your pizza to arrive. It is always well worth it. I always grab a plate of salad at the buffet while I wait.
I was very pleased with this restaurant being a buffet style.. The staff was very helpful being my first time to visit. The pizza does cost $2 more but, it's worth it. They even told me I could make my pizza half dessert and half a normal pizza.. The cook your noodles separate from where they cook wheat noodles. The noodles, pizza, ect., everything that I could sample was great!
I was very pleased with my experience at Pizza Pie Cafe. There is a $2 up charge, which I find reasonable. You order your own pizza and bring it to your table. This is where my only complaint comes. They give you this little plaque to set on your table so they can find you but when bringing out the pizza, minimal effort was given to find my table. They ended up not giving me my pizza until I had to go ask for it and three pieces were eaten out of it. The food was very good and celiac friendly. I would just be sure to set your sign In an obvious place and watch for your pizza.
For ppl eating gf it is an extra $2 added to the buffet price. So you get the salad bar all you can eat and a personal gf pizza brought to your table. The gf pizza was decent, not the best ever but certainly not the worst. It's somewhere in the middle but it satisfied my pizza craving for sure. Friendly helpful staff with gf knowledge. Wahoo! Much cheaper than many other gf pizza joints and the rest of the fam can get other stuff since it's all you can eat! We will be back!
I had my first experience there the other day. I loved the pizza and I didn't get sick. It gets a 4 because the hostess said all they offer is GF pizza and I paid for the buffet. I was so disappointed. It was crowded, dirty and there were kids running around like it was a jungle gym
We were VERY impressed. The lady who took our order obviously cared. She left the station a few times and asked very specific questions for us. We enjoyed the gluten free pasta with marinara sauce. You can have marinara or meat marinara. They put on gloves and heated the noodles in a special hot pot just for gluten free pasta and they knew exactly what to do. Only downside is the wait when multiple GF people are there. This was VERY good. Had some asiago and parmesan cheese on it. The pizza was sooooooo much better than I expected. We liked it better cold from the freezer than in the restaurant but it was very good. We got a pizza, unlimited pasta and salad bar for two for just under $20. We'll be back in a heart beat. Absolutely the best gluten free experience so far.
Very happy with the experience. There is a up charge of $2 for gluten free; but with that you get a pizza that you choose the toppings from their gf menu, gluten free pasta (limited sauces), and salad bar. They cook the pasta in a separate water bath, and they use a good quality pasta (Schlar multigrain gf penne) - but it was overcooked (my only real complaint). You can take your pizza leftovers home. They appeared to take gf seriously with employees washing hands prior to preparing food and using separate areas for preparation. I will come back.
Love that they have gluten-free options! They are often very accommodating and friendly. The pasta is great, and the pizza is ok. The fact that it makes it possible for me to eat out with my family and friends without added stress makes it absolutely at the top of my list!!!
Normally a buffet-style pizza locale, for a nominal charge, they offer gluten free pizza. However, this charge gets you a large GF pizza all to yourself, and the even let you take it home. They also have gluten free pasta, sauces, and offer a salad bar. I believe they also offer take out.
Good food for a great price! The girl at the register almost ruined it, but we decided to stay and give it a chance. I'm glad we did. The rest of the staff was great! The past was decent, salad bar great and only 2$ for each gf pizza even dessert and cheese bread. went during happy hpur 2-4 so it was 6.00 plus I got a combo pizza and dessert pizza for barely 10.00 not to mention the all you can eat pasta and salad! That is half the price of just 1 pizza anywhere else. They definitely need to expand!
I only ate here once. I got terribly ill from cross contamination. I had both pizza and pasta so I'm not sure which it was that made me sick. Frankly though the pizza was awful. The texture of the crust was like sand in play-doh and I'm just not willing to risk my health again to see if the problem was the pasta. Even though it is cheap beyond compare, I wouldn't eat that pizza again if someone paid me it was so awful.
We decided to try Pizza Pie Café while on a little stop-over in Logan, based on this app. and reviews. I was pleasantly surprised. Ever since I found out I can't have gluten, I don't get too excited about going to new restaurants because I never know how much the staff is familiar with GF. Upon entering, we were greeted by the most friendly, up-beat manager, Oliver. He explained how the restaurant works (for non-GFers, they just pay and use the pizza, pasta, and salad bars, and for GFers, they pay $2 more and can get an entire GF pizza and a serving of GF pasta, plus the endless salad bar). He had a lot of knowledge about gluten, and knew which pizza toppings I could not have, even suggesting alternatives. I ended up getting 1/2 FIREFIGHTER pizza and 1/2 make-your-own. I was still skeptical. We headed to the pasta station, and my family got their food. We headed to the pizza station (which was pretty impressive with loads of regular and dessert pizzas) and my family got their food. We headed to the salad bar, where we all got our food. ALL their dressings are GF, according to the manager. Their Italian and poppyseed dressings were a bit too gooey, but the ranch was really yummy. I used ranch and some balsamic vinegar. I really liked that they had spinach for a green leafy option. Upon sitting down, my pizza was brought to me after about 5 minutes. It was hot, delicious, and a very thin crust. YUMMY. I enjoyed that pizza! I had to wait for quite a while for my pasta, which the manager cooked personally, and was very apologetic at how long it took. I got the sauce on the side (half pesto - YUM, and half marinara - YUM). The pasta wasn't quite cooked and could have probably used another minute or two, but I appreciated the effort. Also, with all the pizza I ate, I really wasn't interested in pasta. Overall, a great deal for the money, and I had NO REACTION to anything, which I consider a huge success. Will be trying out the Midvale location here, shortly, and will post my review on that as well. Obviously cross-contamination may be an issue if you are sensitive to such. My pizza was baked on a separate pan, and my pasta was cooked in it's own water in the back, not by the other noodles at the pasta station, so I believe the staff are doing their best to make sure no one gets sick. Thanks to Oliver in Logan. He helped make the experience wonderful for me and my family.
This place has good food for a good price!!! read on for a more detailed description/review... first the price= it is a buffet so you pay to get in $7.25 for lunch $8.25 for dinner. happy hour is 2-4:00p.m. Monday-Friday you get in for $6.00. You get all the gluten free pasta ( penne pasta ) & salad you can eat for that. you pay an extra $2.00 for every pizza. if you do the math, even if you only get one pizza your still paying less than the $15.00 average everywhere else. in the kitchen your crust is put on its own CLEAN aluminum pan & baked. menu & lists. of gluten free ingredients in on the front counter. you don't have a dedicated gluten free kitchen but the staff is extremely careful:-) I took my mom there yesterday for her birthday. we got two sodas. four salads, four portions of pasta & five pizzas all for about $30 (i think it was $31.00) their dessert pizzas are amazing. gluten free just can't eat the oreo or cookie dough.... the apple & peach cobbler are my favorite!!:-) also they have a frequent diner club. by 10 adult entrees get one free:-) the quality of all of their ingredients is very good also!!! only slight problem is its canned pineapple but even that is still very good!!:-)
I used to drive to Alpine for their pizza. It's a buffet style for those not GF, but you can order a regular GF pizza there. There is also a salad bar and GF pasta, while you wait for the pizza. There's a large variety of pizza toppings, including dessert pizza;
Awesome place. They brought me my own serving of pasta and a pizza made to order even though it's buffet style dining. I also took the leftovers with me. I will come back any chance I get. Love this place!
The Logan Pizza Pie Cafe is outstanding - their salad bar is one of the best in town, the GF pasta is cooked properly most of the time, and the pizza itself is delicious (thin crust but still slightly doughy). This is the best value for any GF meal, especially pizza, that I have found anywhere. The ingredients and dishes are quality, and they are prepared well. To get the GF meal, you pay $2 extra for a regular pizza buffet, which includes salad bar, pasta, and a pizza cooked-to-order (non-GF eaters simply pick slices off the buffet). Since Pizza Pie Cafe serves mostly traditional (wheat-based) pizza and pasta, it's obviously possible for cross-contamination to occur. However, I have never had any issues after eating there. It helps that the staff all are knowledgeable about which ingredients contain gluten. Overall I love this restaurant because it scratches my itch for good thin-crust pizza and pasta (plus a great salad).
The food is good, but I don't like how it takes so much longer than everyone else's. So by the time I get my food, everyone is already done eating.
Pasta was decent, pizza was good but I didn't feel like it was worth the money compared to other pizza places.
Excellent dining option and very affordable for GF. Ordered gf pasta and was happy to see the server change gloves and use a different pot of water to warm them. The GF pizza crust taste was a little off, but smother anything in pepperoni and it taste marvelous.
I have class 3 celiac so I'm really sensitive to any gluten. Every time I go here I can tell after I eat the food that it has some cross contamination. There is no way it's 100% gf. It doesn't make me super sick but I feel uneasy.
i was very happy to discover this place. They have a wide selection of toppings and pizza sauces. The gluten free crust is really good, much better than some other places i have been. And i like that the cook the gf pizzas on their own disposable pizza pan (to reduce risk of cross contamination). So far, we have only done take out. One day i will try the gf pasta and do a review on that.
Very accommodating on every level. They are a franchise, but well trained and understand all about cross contamination. Bring labels on anything, including root beer. My 11 yr old son keeps saying, "this pizza is amazing!". Best gf experience to date!
A good place to eat with the family, I can get my own GF pizza made how I want; even dessert pizza :) Really like the salad too, the people are always so kind!
