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.
Most amazing pizza they use separate ovens and hold the pizza up in the air to prevent cross contamination. They even are dairy free friendly and know all toppings that are gf. Wish they had one where I live I will be getting one on the way out!
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.
Although they changed their gloves for me, I had some concerns about cross-contamination (shared toppings, no dedicated prep area). Also, when I ordered gluten-free, the server asked, "Is that because of an intolerance, or a choice?" Which to me sounds like code for "How careful do we need to be?" Not to mention that it's really none of their business and it shouldn't matter to them. The pizza was good, but I have mixed feelings about going back.
Amazing place. Staff is very well trained in gluten allergies. They changed their gloves for me and used different utensils as well as a different crust & sauce. Also, they have two gluten free desserts! Definitely will go back again.
Very good GF crust and knowledgable staff! They were extremely kind and took the time to answer all my questions. Separate utensils are used and I felt very confident that my pizza would be prepared in a safe way. My husband also loved his non gf pizza! We'll be coming back. :)
do not have a gluten free area we have had problems with contamination. we no longer eat there.
Great thin gluten free pizza crust. Lots of organic ingredients and super fresh preparations. You watch as your food is prepared and staff is well trained in GF food prepping procedures. Super yum!
I loved this place. They had the best pizza in the Panama City beach area. I can't believe they closed. Please, somebody, tell me why. Really good, so sorry to see it close.
As others have said, gluten free allergy or preference asked when ordering. Been very pleased with their GF pizzas which have a separate prep area. They offer 3 free toppings. GF pizza option is 9" only which is plenty for my good appetite and I very rarely eat it all in one sitting. My favorite is chicken, spinach and ricotta. If you order online, you can repeat a previous order which saves us time. Friendly servers.
The gf crust was tasty and on the crispy side. And there are a variety of gluten free toppings so I cannot complain.
Our favorite place for GF pizza. They assemble the pizza in front of you using uncontaminated ingredient bins. They ask if your gluten free diet is an allergy or preference. Since we are celiac, we say "allergy". Not sure how they would prep the pizza differently is we said "preference". In any event this is the place for us for best crust and confidence.
Went here on a Saturday just after they opened to lessen any confusion. The guy making the pizzas, after I asked for GF, asked if it was for celiac! I was really impressed. he has a premade crust that was thin but tasted fine. the sauce and cheese was taken from the back of the toppings area so that lessened cross contamination issues. All the toppings I asked for were taken from containers stored in a separate location. I felt quite safe here. This was in Knoxville, TN.
Not the best pizza. But the folks who work there are super nice, well versed in cross contamination prevention, and genuinely concerned about allergy and intolerance issues. As soon as I asked for gluten free pizza, the lady who makes the pizza started clearing the counter and cleaning it. She also got clean utensils and unopened bags of the ingredients I asked for. And everybody was super cheerful about it all. Nobody treated my order like it was a hassle at all. When I need pizza out, this will definitely be my go to pizza place.
Love this place!!! Lots of gluten free options. Staff is highly knowledgable, accommodating, and friendly! Thank you!!! Be sure to alert them to any medical concerns regarding cross-contamination. They have a separate preparation area with safe ingredients. The only change that I would recommend would be clearly labeled take out boxes, though it is shown on the receipt, and they told us which boxes were the gluten free pizzas in our order. We will certainly be ordering again. Delicious! Highly recommended!!!
I have celiac disease and am quite sensitive and have been here at least 10 times with never a problem. They take care to wash hands, use clean gloves and don't put your Pizza in with the gluten ones. Not only that but their pizzas are positively delish! Not super expensive either. Recommend you check it out while you're visiting the world's best beaches.
Great place! My husband was diagnosed with Celiacs @ a month ago. We have gone to Maddios for a year, and have eaten gf, preference, off and on. Since diagnosis, responding "allergy" kicks them into alert and they take great care of my man. And now, they remember him every time too! Seriously. They see him coming and kick into gear. Our fav place since diagnosis.
Great place for a GF pizza! They have a separate dedicated area just for the GF pizza. They cook the pizza on a pan to prevent cross contamination as well. Kids meal with gf pizza with one topping and a drink cost $5. Menu clearly marks what is gf. Great customer service and the pizza was relish! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Just finished our dinner here and it was wonderful. Definitely Celiac feiendly! The guy asked if GF was allergy or choice & when we said allergy he immediately went to work...changed gloves, cleaned counter & on top of that all the veggies &topping for GF are separated!! Definitely will return.😊
Gloves are always replaced if specified allergen and counter tops are wiped they make sure to not place it in the oven next to any gluten filled items. I eat here often and have never had a reaction however keep in mind that the gluten filled pizza crust is made in the kitchen.
Fantastic gluten-free pizza!!! One of the best gf pizzas I've ever had. They had separate safe toppings and sauce, they wiped everything down, washed their hands, and put on new gloves. Oh, and they have separate utensils as well. I will be going there regularly!!
What a treat to find this place while traveling up the East Coast. So many gluten free toppings to choose from. The gluten free crusts are kept separate and staff is very knowledgeable. We also like that the pizzas can all be considered Personal pan so you can get what you like and get the toppings you desire and not have to share with anyone.
Their GF crust is the best!!! Plus they change their gloves and the staff is very knowledgeable as to what is GF and what isn't. Love how much they care and LOVE the taste!!
Good pizza, and they are very careful with GF. If you request GF they will ask you TWICE if it is "allergy or preference", and if you say "allergy", they have a special process that involves using gloves, taking the ingredients from special containers kept under the counter, and cleaning the grill. They ask you that question when you order GF in the cafeteria line, and they ask you again when you pay at the register, to make sure they got it right. When they bring it to your table, it arrives separately from any other pizza -- at least it has for us both times. My wife is the celiac and she says it tastes good. I can vouch for their non-GF pizza, it is good too.
Fantastic gluten free pizza!
I read several reviews for this restaurant regarding their gluten free crust. It seemed as if there was something special about this crust, but in reality it is the standard crust from the Food Service that everyone uses. The pizza was okay, but it certainly wasn't worth the drive to get to this place because it was just an average experience.
