This place is phenomenal and a personal favorite. The pizza is some of the best gluten free pizza I’ve ever had, and everyone I’ve shared it with has said the same thing. I’ve gone multiple times and never gotten sick and always felt very safe. Pro-tip: I recommend calling ahead and reserving a gluten free pizza dough in advance.

Outstanding gluten free pizza. It's so good the first time I had it, I was worried I had been given the wrong pizza. But no, it's just really that good. I've eaten here many times and never gotten sick.

Gluten-Free at Forno Rosso Pizzeria Napoletana
"Bufalina" added extra cheese. Would recommend just getting the reglular amt of cheese, better balance with the sauce ratio. But it was INCREDIBLE!

Unfortunately, the crust is made with wheat starch and not 100% gluten free

Run, don't walk to this fantastic and delicious pizza place! Although not labeled on the menu, they have gluten-free salads, some appetizers, and an amazing gluten-free pizza crust. Our server was very knowledge about celiac and what I could and could not have. He even told me about their pizza flour that they use and showed me where I could buy it to experience amazing crust at home. I ordered their award winning Caputo cup pizza and it was so delicious. I ate the entire thing, (no judgment). Our table also split a prosciutto and cheese board and one of the salads. They kept the bread on the side so I could enjoy. Please note that you should call ahead to reserve a gluten-free crust since they do run out. Also, the crust is not safe if you have a wheat allergy, it is gluten-free but the wheat starch they use would still give a wheat allergy person a bad reaction.

Called ahead for gluten free crust. They were very knowledgeable and the pizza was fricking amazing! The restaurant is authentic Italian. Highly recommend the espresso martini. Family business with excellent service.

Ever since living in Italy, I’ve been looking for a gluten free pizza that even comes close to comparing. Forno Rosso does that and more. Call ahead to reserve gluten free crusts in advance. No separate pizza oven, but me and another celiac went several times and never had any issues

Amazing. I’m still looking for an ACTUAL great pizza, that happens to be GF. (Not “great in comparison to my lower bar set for GF……”) Incredible! I got the bulafina pizza. I asked for extra cheese because I wanted more of a typical cheese pizza feel, and if you order regular, I looked like, from photos anyway, that the fresh cheese doesn’t fully cover the pie (that’s just the purposeful style of the pizza). Next time, I’d order it normally. I do love the cheese but I could tell if I got it made regularly, it’d be a better balance with the sauce. Sauce was amazing. Crust was crispy. After about 30-40 mins, the crust suffered, but didn’t affect me. Amazing!

UPDATE: owner told me that it isn’t possible for them to avoid cross contamination 100%. The surface the pizzas are cooked on is the same as the regular pizzas. I asked them to use foil, and they said it still wouldn’t be safe.

My stomach has never been affected from eating here multiple times, but I just found this information out.

Owner is a trash human and picked a fight like some roided out meat head. He belongs on the jersey shore. Pizzas not worth the money at all unless you want to cook it yourself. I feel bad for anyone who works for this ass.

One of the best gluten free pizzas I’ve had!

Fabulous gluten free pizza. Staff are great about making dairy free accommodations too. It is, however, cooked in the same oven so the highly sensitivity it won’t be a good option. Best to call ahead (even if it’s the same day) to reserve a crust. We always get great service!

They take gluten free seriously. It’s best to call ahead to reserve one of their gluten free crusts. Then when you order they make your gluten free pizza when there is a lull in the kitchen so there is little chance of cross contamination. I’m happy to wait to be sure that it’s gluten free.

This is my favorite gluten free pizza in Chicago.

The pizza is delicious but is almost never available. The restaurant asks that you call ahead to reserve crusts more than a day in advance. GF crusts are almost never available for delivery and are rarely available for walk-ins, in my experience. It’s a shame because the pizza tastes great

You have to (should) call ahead and reserve your GF dough! The crust was crispy and still soft. The staff asked right away about allergies. Fresh and delicious ingredients. It was easy to get off and on the highway too.

Most delicious GF pizza crust! In fact had to have my husband try it just to confirm that they didn’t make a mistake in the kitchen. However, I will mention that there is risk of cross contamination. I woke up the next day feeling a little bloated and off, but not sick like I have from eating GF at other pizza places. Our server forewarned me that while they do take many precautions, if I was highly sensitive/allergic I could have a reaction. I appreciated his honesty and concern for my health. Since I’m not celiac (just gluten intolerant) I would definitely return again just so I could enjoy such delicious pizza.

This place has the best gluten free pizza I've ever had... and I've tried a lot. They do a great job of making it feel like a neopolitan crust. Note that it is cooked in a shared oven, though they say they use a separate peel and wash down the area for the gluten feee pizza
