They have a gluten free pizza - crust is sausage. Good but way too much meat. Unaware of separate kitchen area - so 4 stars as it’s not celiac friendly to avoid cross contamination.

Delicious! I asked the server to talk to the chef and manager and ensure that the meal was treated as an extreme wheat allergy, the food tasted great and I didn’t get sick. As far as the food goes, there was a perfect sauce to crust ratio, crust was harder/crunchier than expected but it didn’t take away from the delicious flavour. I would return.

Staff was very knowledgeable and assured me that precautions would be taken to prevent cross-contamination. I had pepperoni and it was the best GF pizza I’ve had! Ranch is GF too. They were very busy but managed to keep my meal safe!

Great service. Shared kitchen space. Gluten free pizza crust is a little yeasty, so next time I’ll go with the crustless pizza. Delicious, fresh toppings! Much better then Giordano’s!

This chain was recommended to us, but we were highly disappointed. We did not like the gf pizza at all—taste or texture—and we felt ill afterward. (Even the non-gf deep dish was not as good as other local spots according to those who could have it.)

Great staff and so friendly and accommodating however the 1 star remains for getting glutened. Celiac truly do not eat here. We went with friends who wanted to go but it’s really not safe. Took the gamble and unfortunately we lost we time. It’s so sad because our waiter was awesome and so kind. Although to be compared it was a gf cardboard pizza. Worst I’ve ever had which makes getting sick even that much worse.

Great gf pizza! If you are ordering in make sure to specify that you want your pizza uncut - otherwise they may use a pizza cutter that was used on gluten pizza.

GF pizza is cooked in same oven as regular pizzas, so cross-contamination is highly possible. However, the GF sausage-crust pizza is made in a separate deep dish pan so cross-contam. is unlikely in their ovens. We’ve had this many times with no issues. Sausage crust is not on the menu so you have to ask for it. Tell them you have the “allergy” and they will be careful.

The menu says right on that the gluten free crust is made in a sterile environment but it's finished in a unsafe environment. So I asked and she explained that the crust is from a gluten free bakery and then they cook it in the same oven as the gluten pizza. The gf crust is cooked on a pan though so it seemed ok. So far haven't gotten sick and usually I know within minutes if I got glutened so it's an ok from me!

Yes they do have gluten free pizza, but I don't understand why so many people are so excited about it. The crust tasted like a butter cracker, not appealing to me in a pizza crust. The Chicago-style pepperoni topping was nothing special. The only alternative to this was a crust made of Italian sausage, which was greasy and just plain nauseating. The best part of the meal was the bone-in chicken wing appetizers. Not worth the hour and a half wait to get in.

I've tried the GF pizza at this and other Lou Maintains locations and find the pizza crust to be very "doughy," difficult to eat (and cut into) and digest. The Malnati's salad is very good - I get it without the cheese and have not had any issues.

Crustless = sausage crust. Made me sick! Even disregarding the reaction, I ended up only eating the inside of the pizza because it's just too much sausage. Gluten eating friends thought their pizza was just ok.

They have a gluten free thin pizza listed invitee menu I got that with mushrooms and olives. The crust is hard and really pretty flavorless. I am guessing the pizza is cooked in the oven with the other regular pizza's because later that evening at the hotel I felt horrible and ended up taking some Benadryl. I would not recommend this location if you truly have celiac disease and are not just eating gluten free. Against the Grain frozen pizza's are way better tasting

Their thin crust is OK, nothing special, but their crust-less "meatza" is really good and satisfies that deep dish craving.

My husband is a Chicago native and was very much looking forward to a pizza from Lou Malnati's. Since I have Celiac Disease, my pizza nights are few and far between. I was very much looking forward to this pizza but was not only disappointed in the GF pizza itself but more importantly, it made me very sick. However, I tried the GF sausage ring pizza in 2008 (Wildwood location) and did not have any problems with it at all.

I love the gluten free pizza! Although it's not deep dish, the crust is crunchy like deep dish is, just thinner. Highly recommend.

When my office brings in pizza, they typically bring in Lou Malnati's. They've ordered the GF cheese pizza for me. Frankly, it sucks. The crust is so hard I've nearly broken a tooth on it. And crusts shouldn't create a squeaking noise when you bite into them. It was tasteless and, quite frankly, not worth the money. I only ate them because I had nothing else with me.
