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
Had the GF pizza with sausage and mushroom. Very tasty, would definitely recommend. The Cabernet was also good.
Absolutely horrible. The entire restaurant is a disorganized disaster. Horrible. I have celiac disease and I went with a friend who has a gluten sensitivity. I am currently laying in bed in pain. Halfway through my meal I thought I would vomit. My friend is currently in the bathroom vomiting. We both had the "crustless gluten free pizza" I told the person I gave my order to that I had celiac disease. They are the most disorganized, unapologetic, careless restaurant I have been to in years. Also when we asked to split the bill we paid cash...afterward we were all given our change in a lump sum left for us to divide on our own. The processes and organization of this restaurant need serious reconstructing. The whole place is chaos and on top of that I'm now ill. Never ever again. Go somewhere else that is run like a DECENT restaurant because this place would be lucky to be considered decent
I had the crustless gluten free pizza. The "crust" was made of really tasty sausage. It was great!! I highly recommend this restaurant if you're in Chicago.
Decent pizza, the crust was pretty dry and flavorless. It could have used some garlic. The waitstaff was knowledgable. The Caesar salad was yummy. Overall a good experience.
Amazing deep dish gf pizza. Get it with the spinach topping!
Awesome GF pizza, however the wait was horribly long. It was over an hour before we got our pizza.
Very good crustless deep dish pizza!
Menu is clearly marked. Suggests what to order.
Choices are crustless pizzza with a sausage base or gluten free crust and your choice of toppings. Crust was very good. If ordering with no cheese ask for extra sauce. Very long wait but it was Friday and there is a convention in town as well as football fans. Husband had regular deepdish and was disappointed. Was concerned about contamination since it was ago busy but seems all is well.
i thought their gf pizza was great. They have a 9 " gf flour thin crust with your choice of toppings. i had onions, mushrooms and spinach. Absolutely delicious!! The crust stayed together and had a great mouth feel. i would definitely go back! Closest to real that i've had so far.
Pizza was GF but only bc there was no crust at all. The base of the pizza was sausage and rather overwhelming for this non- sausage eating gal!
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.
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.
Had the wings and pizza. The wings are baked they're not bad, nothing special in my opinion. I also had the GF pizza, it wasn't bad either didn't think it was anything special. I did get sick, I would say be very cautious and talk with your waiter because it sounds like the opportunity for cross contamination is very high. They do not have a separate prep area for gf foods. They also have wine and angry orchard to drink.
I went here when they first opened up by my house and the waitress told me a pizza was gluten free, brought it out, let me eat an entire huge piece of deep dish, and then came out and said 'oh that's the wrong pizza' and handed me another one. To which my mom asked if the one I ate was gluten free and she lied straight to our faces and said yes. I was sick for three days because she messed up and couldn't just check in with the chef. Their pizza isn't that good, honestly dominoes is better than this place and they don't lie. The service is also very slow.
Just ate the GF wings and they were possibly the best I've ever had. The combination of the baked wings, with a little crispy-ness to them, the slightly spicy buffalo sauce and what has to be homemade blue cheese was a home run or if your watching the Bears play, a touchdown!!! Waiting for the GF pizza next- more to come on that once I've put that down too. Ok- so I just ate the pizza. I can't believe it but they actually pulled off a tasty deep-dish GF crust. It was thin enough on the bottom while being thick enough around the crust. It was cooked just right and maintained an excellent and even texture. It tasted like a buttery crunchy crust but not too hard to where it hurts your mouth. It really was just right. I could only eat about 1/3 of it through because I was already getting full from the wings and this pizza really is filling. You could easily share it between two people and be full afterwards. The sauce is very fresh tasting with a little tangy kick and some chunky tomatoes. The ingredients were also very fresh and still a little crispy. The bell peppers and onion were cut into large chunks which added a unique texture even on top of the aforementioned. Overall- I would have to rate this the best Gluten Free pizza I've had. There was obviously a commitment to making this good and not just have a GF option available without regard to texture and or taste like most places. Great Job Lou!!!
Great food, great staff and great atmosphere. The gluten free option can either be a small size rice base which is big enough for two. Or you can get sausage patty base. They do not however have a gluten free starter but their brownie is gluten free is worth trying, very delicious. Make sure to book in advance as you can wait up to an hour for a table on any night.
I had the thin rice crust pizza and it was great! I've resolved that I will never have a pizza experience like I did before I had to go gf so my expectations are different. I couldn't eat the cheese bc I'm also dairy free, so I loaded up with good toppings. I had sausage, garlic, spinach, black olives and mushrooms. It was literally the best gf pizza I've had since eating gf. Obviously, pizza with no cheese is lacking so I got some olive oil, sprinkled salt in it and dipped my pizza in and it was perfect! This restaurant is also highly recommend def by locals. The non-gf pizza is incredible says my pizza deprived husband! It is made deep dish and the sauce is on top of the impossibly long and tantalizing cheese. They may make the gf pizza like this too, I just don't know since I can't have dairy.
First off, best crust ever in a gluten free pizza. So crunchy and I like its not a greasy type pizza. Try the "Lou" style on gluten free (I leave off the spinach and love it). The management at the Park Ridge location are fantastic and always accommodating. I love how they always remember last order and ask if you want that. makes the ordering so simple.
