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!
Pretty good GF pizza, though they don't deliver. Protocol includes separate pans and utensils, and a glove change. No reaction from cross contamination, which can sometimes be difficult at a pizza place. Service was a little slow, so giving it four stars. They didn't have our online order ready, but quickly made it when we got there. Good tasting crust and lots of options for toppings.
Great tasting pizza and fun place to eat. Only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is because many of their toppings are not GF. For example the pepperoni is not GF. So just be warned to check topping GF list before building your pizza. Flagged as not celiac friendly because they did not appear to use different pizza trays or cooking space.
I am a frequent regular and only had one very minor incident where the back end used the wrong knife to cut the pizza. There was a lot of turn over at the time. When I informed the manager, he retained everyone right there in front of me! Also, make sure they disinfect the area. They usually keep my pizza airborne and use ingredients from other areas of the kitchen just in case of cross contamination issues. I go once a week and have been for a year now! Not bad!
Excellent GF pizza with staff who paid extra attention to the needs of someone with celiac, and took proper precautions to avoid cross-contamination. Pleasantly surprised me when they used totally separate toppings for the GF pizza! This is a new go-to pizza joint for us!
Maddio's pizza is some of the better GF pizza I have had. The ingredients are fresh. The best part is that the servers know how to prepare your pizza in as clean an environment as possible. They wash hands, change gloves, and even get the toppings from other dishes than are normally used for non-GF pizzas. It is a very kid-involved place, so it can be loud, busy, and sticky in the dining area. FYI.
Gluten Free Pizza
We love the Uncle Maddio's chain, and this brand new store in High Point did a great job for us. When we said we needed to be gluten free, we were asked if it was an allergy. We said yes, and the employee immediately got to work wiping down the prep area and changing his gloves. Meanwhile, the manager chatted with us about their procedure and how careful they are to avoid cross contamination. All the ingredients for our pizza were gotten from unopened containers under the counter. Our pizza was delicious, and we enjoyed it so much we ordered a second "take and bake" pizza to take home with us for the next day! We had no reactions at all. Highly recommended.
I've gone several times and have been impressed each time. They pizza is very good and they are very cautious when preparing it. They wipe down counters, change gloves, and use separate toppings (kept in sealed containers in a refrigerator under the counter) when they make gluten free pizza. There are lots of gf toppings for pizza. They also have gluten free salads. The staff is very nice and friendly, and take a lot of care when preparing gf food.
They have a whole procedure they teach all of their employees. Regardless of how long it takes; they change gloves, wipe down the counter, get new toppings, and announce that it's gf to prevent contamination. They also have daiya cheese for dairy allergies. Very impressed!
Very good pizza and used excellent gluten precautions - wiped down counters and changed gloves before making my gluten free pizza. Also took my topping from separate containers to avoid cross- contamination. They have lots of sauce and veggie options for the gluten free person, but the one draw back was very few meat options; no sausage or pepperoni. They do have steak, chicken, and grilled tofu. I was able to enjoy a tasty jerk chicken pineapple pizza.
Went there Tuesday best pizza I have had in North Carolina. They keep ingredients separate and have a special pan for the pizza. Loved it so much we brought friends last night, I ordered build your own salad. The lady changed her gloves ( they did that with the pizza too) and it is made in the back away from everything. Every one was very nice about it. Very impressed. Our friends liked it too
Summer staff?? Has not been properly trained to handle gluten free pizza. Staff member used the same ladle to spoon on sauce and spread onto non-gluten free dough returning ladle to the sauce container and immediately using the same utensil and sauce from the same container onto the "gluten free" pizza.
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.
