All the Maddio's I've been to have had great GF crust! And they always ask if it's just a preference, or health reasons.
I really wanted to love this place. We took our kids in while visiting Atlanta. It was awesome that they had gluten free kid sizes. However, the gentleman who was preparing our pizza left much to be desired. He didn't seem at all consistent in the proportions he used from pizza to pizza. It seemed like he used the same amount of toppings on the extra-large pizza as he did on the small pizza. The sauce was spread on really un-evenly (there wasn't even really a layer of sauce on 40% of it), and when our pizzas came out they were so lumpy in spots that those spots were burned black & crisp. The people working didn't seem interested in their customers either. The un-burnt crust itself was good, and the guy did ask if gluten free was allergy or preference. When I told him it was allergy for me he changed his gloves. Maybe they just had an off-day for us.
I love that they have a kids GF pizza. My daughter loved it and so did I (I got my own with more toppings than just cheese!)
Huge fan of Maddio's! I prefer the GF crust over regular. I ordered it consistently before I even knew I needed to be GF. You should take care with some toppings, but staff is friendly & well trained. New gloves & clean pans every time.
Love this place. They are the friendliest people ever. Always act happy to see me, change their gloves the minute I walk in. It's so nice not to feel like a burden for my special dietary needs!!
GF pizza was awesome! Super crispy crust and tasty toppings. Lots of good cheese!
If you like thin crust pizza then you will definitely like Maddios GF pizza crust. It was very thin and tastes like normal pizza. I found that it was difficult to cut with the dull knives in the dining room so I had to pick it up. Not my favorite, but I'm weird like that. I would definitely eat it again!
BEST PIZZA!!! My daughter is Celiac and they have fresh GF dough as a choice---as anyone with this problem knows it is VERY hard to find good tasting pizza---THEY HAVE HIT A HOMERUN!!!!! THANK YOU UNCLE MADDIO'S!!!!
Great gf pizza crust. I like thin crust so I enjoyed their crust!
We stopped here on a road trip through the area. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about their policies for avoiding cross contamination. My celiac three year old loved her pizza. It was one of the best gf crusts we've tried. This place was very family friendly. We would stop here again if back in the area.
I am a very sensitive Celiac and when I called ahead to see how they handled gluten free orders, I was impressed at their thoroughly described protocol. When we visited to actually eat there, I was also impressed. They're very careful, they understand cross-contamination and they take very seriously any "allergy" orders. I wasn't going to write a review until I knew how I reacted, but I didn't even get a hint of sickness from contamination or anything. This will probably be our family's go-to gluten free pizza option!
I am amazed I'm the first to rate this excellent place for celiacs! When I went, the young woman behind the counter was training someone. As soon as I ordered, she asked "allergy or choice?" And when I said allergy, she showed her trainee how to wipe down the counter, change his gloves and ensure nothing else was near my (delicious) GF Greek pizza. Lots of choices of toppings, dough made fresh daily (in a dedicated area), and the crust was actually nice and crispy, with no weird chewy texture like so many other places. I will definitely be back!
Rejoice my celiac friends ! As soon as you say gluten free they throw their gloves away, scrub up with soap to the elbow, wipe the whole counter down, pull out a separate gf crust (my non-celiac girlfriend claims it tastes like 'real' pizza), the toppings are kept separate, covered, under the counter. They let everyone know in the kitchen it's gf. The setup is similar to subway with the whole 'assembly line' pizza creation so you can see them make it the whole time ! Also they have no-bake cookies that are super good and gluten free. Seriously the only pizza place I trust to eat as a celiac !! Great pizza !!
The employees go out of their way to make sure that all GF dedicated ingredients are the only ones used on GF pizzas. They use brand new gloves for every GF pizza order and wipe down the workspace. However, they do cook both GF and non-GF pizzas together - celiac beware.
if you really want pizza its good. but the service a thumbs down, theres no communication between the employees and its messy. they didnt know they were out of pesto and had to make it for my order and then we had to ask for my pizza after everyone else was already half way done with theirs.
They have gluten free and vegan options! They also have all items listed in their website with the allergies they contain. In the store, they have a gluten free menu! Really tasty too!!!!
Gluten free friendly, the staff seemed knowledgable but there was a disclaimer on the bottom of the menu that Uncle Maddios was not recommended for celiacs. The sauce was kind of bland. Only 3 meats that were gluten free; chicken, steak, jerk chicken. OK, but I'm not sure I'll return again due to the disclaimer and limited meat options.
Best GF Pizza!! Love the Steak & Blue!
Staff very accommodating & knowledgeable .. Best gfree crust in the omaha area!! They changed gloves & wiped down area extra well prior to making my pizza.. They also pulled fresh toppings from cooler to avoid cross continuation.. I asked for my crust to be cooked a bit longer to eliminate the soggy crust that sometimes occurs with rice based crusts & it turned out flipping fantastic!! Finally found my go to pizza place.. Thumbs up guys great service & delicious food ❤️
This place is amazing. We don't live in Cola but have to be at the children's hospital often with my little boy. My husband has to run and find me gluten free food daily which is difficult. This pizza was amazing and they even sent me a free gluten free dessert when they learned we were in the hospital. Most importantly, it tasted great and I didn't get sick. They are very knowledgeable and careful. I will eat there again for sure!
Gluten free menu including pizza and salads. A lot of unique pizza toppings, and the place has you order and watch your pizza being made, so you can clearly see problems if they're going to happen.Employees knew about GF, changed gloves, notified all people behind the counter, and pulled dough and ingredients from the non-contaminated cooler. Cooked on a 2nd rack which appeared to be for GF only. They were extremely careful, well trained, and knowledgeable.Food was delicious.
Delicious pizza (even my non celiac boyfriend thought so!) They had gluten free crust, changed their gloves and had separate pizza sauce for the gluten pizzas to avoid cross contamination. I highly recommend this place. A fast and easy meal for celiacs!
GF Pizza and GF breadsticks are unbelievably delicious! Care is taken to share GF items and items they cannot "guarantee" because of distributor. The service is fantastic and the prices are phenomenally reasonable. Have paid 3 times the price at Dominos for a mediocre pizza. This has just become a favorite and regular stop on our way North to the mountains.
The gentleman who waited on us explained to me how they do things (they change their gloves, different pans, utensils, etc). When I told him I also have a dairy allergy he was able to let me know what else I couldn't have on my pizza. This is one of the few places I have been that I felt confident in the abilities of those who made my food. We live over an hour away but we will be back again!!
Very good pizza! That being said, this location, after asking if your dietary needs are allergy or preference, the staff will further press you for more details. As a diagnosed Celiac sufferer for many years, I understand the importance of these details, and I have an such an appreciation for it. However, I feel berated by the interrogation they put you through. There's often a long line and you might as well announce with a megaphone your medical conditions after the line of questioning they impose. The corporate office needs to train the staff to just go ahead and take all the appropriate precautions when someone says yes to the allergy question and no to it just being a matter of preference. I appreciate the diligence they're trying to put forth, but not everyone will feel comfortable putting the nuanced details of their medical diagnoses on display just to order a pizza when they've already expressed they need it to be made free of any cross-contamination.
GF pizzas, salads, dessert. Fresh-made pizza is assembled in front of you with new gloves, etc. with tons of fresh (most GF) topping choices. Service is outstanding; they are knowledgable and take GF seriously.
In theory, their GF pizza plan might work, but in reality, the are just to many chances of cross contamination. They use the same pizza pans the regular crusts are baked on and only scrape them instead of scrubbing them or having a separate GF pan. The guy slicing the pizza uses the same tray and blade on every pizza. He has no way of knowing if it's GF unless he looks at the order tag. I'd recommend this place for people with gluten intolerance, but not Celiacs. The pizzas are delicious (but not worth the risk).
