I got gluten free deep dish. Spoke with my server (Lori) about my severe wheat allergy. Asked for clean gloves and utensils along with fresh ingredients. She went back to the kitchen and told them, then came and told me what she told them. Server was amazing and assured me that they are very very cautious with allergies. Didnt get sick!

Lou’s now has gluten free deep dish crust as well as thin crust. They have a new, updated thin crust recipe and both products are excellent.

Best gluten free pizza! Crunchy crust, tastes like deep dish when you get extra sauce. They're very careful with allergies. Ask for pizza to be uncut. We never get sick.

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.

Tasted like a thin frozen pizza. I watch all my family eating the wonderful thick sausage filled pizzas and look at my sad little gf pizza and I don't even want to eat there!

The taste of the gluten free deep wish was ok, but I immediately got sick within the hour. They use the same tong to grab onto the pans while slicing for you and I doubt they clean it between each table. I think that’s what made me sick since I only had 1 slice from that corner. The person who took our pizzas after to be wrapped up to go also didn’t know what gluten was, so I just threw the entire thing away. Definitely stay away if you’re sensitive.

Literally so good. My only complaint is the edges are a bit hard but the flavor is amazing and it didn’t crumple so it’s a 10 in my book. I don’t love deep dish so I didn’t get it but I loved that I had the OPTION. I feel like that’s so rare. I would definitely come here again.

Gluten free options, yes. But the Chicago style gluten free deep dish pizza was mediocre at best. Toppings were delicious, however the crust was chewy and challenging to eat.
