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.)

Barraccos in evergreen Park's pizza kicks the poo out of any of these pizzas. Trust me.

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.

This location does a great job with GF pizza & we also love their spinach salad with pears & goat cheese.

Ordered my wife the GF pizza, she said it was the best GF pizza she's ever had. The crust looked handmade and tolled, not something straight out of a plastic bag/freezer. Very impressed!

I ordered a gluten-free pizza for lunch but forgot to ask for no croutons on my salad. The server had the presence of mind to bring me a salad with no croutons on it. impressed.

GF pizza that tastes great! I had cheese and sausage; enjoyed every bite. Buttery crust is fantastic and nothing like the standard frozen GF crust used by many pizza places. Only available in one size which is perfect for one happy GF person.

Best gf crust ever!! No problems with cross contamination in DT Naperville. Can't wait to go back, I have missed them. Now if you could make that skillet cookie GF, that would be amazing!!

This is my absolute favorite gf pizza! Amazing buttery crust. Just note that the small (which is the only size it comes in) is only big enough for one person. Awesome price too. Way cheaper than a lot of places.

Delicious. Have had the "no dough" option a few times, and now an actual GF crust! Best GF pizza I've had in the Chicagoland area!

This review based on take out at Carol Stream location: Small is only size choice. It is very good GF crust. Maybe most close to original of any pizza place I've found. Price is also good -- small is under $10. BUT NOTE THAT IT IS SMALL. Not exactly deep dish and very light. When i pocked up my box I knew i was not carrying enough for two people. Two pizza will serve three people. I can eat a small by myself even if I shouldn't. Among the best GF pizza I've ever tasted. Just make sure you order enough.

Crustless pizza is available. The "crust" is made from sausage. I loved it! I did have some slight discomfort from the cross contamination, but I would do it again! I am so glad to know that I don't have to give up my favorite pizza.

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.

The waitresses was very knowledgeable about gluten free and she took that into consideration when the pizza was being made. Did not get sick! I would call ahead to see how long the wait is, if there is one, place tends to get crowded!

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.

Staff were knowledgeable but pizza base was hard as rock. Toppings were yummy but I was disappointed by the hard, flavourless base. I had read great GF reviews and was left underwhelmed.

Great gluten free pizza crusts and several other options. The staff is familiar with gluten free and they take precautions when cooking pizzas to avoid cross contact. I’ve never gotten sick eating here.

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.

Gluten-free pizza came back POSITIVE for gluten via Nima sensor. Not recommended for Celiacs.

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.

Crust less was fantastic. They even served the pizza uncut to avoid cross contamination from cutter! Absolutely no reaction! I will be back!

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.

super awesome! they have a thin crust that you can put any of their pizza on, and a crust less sausage pizza. Lots of salads to choose from. 30 minutes for your pizza, and it is delicious. I had "the lou" and loved it.

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 know this review is the minority but we did not care for the gf pizza. The price was reasonable but neither my son nor myself cared for the crust. For me also, the crust left a unfavorable aftertaste.

Great sausage on the pizza. The crust was fairly good, a little chewy, but had good favor. The salad dressings are gluten free and quite a few salads are. The pizzas are made in a safe zone, but aren't cooked and cross contamination is likely.

The pizza was good and the servers are always really nice. They seem to be very careful about cross contamination.
