I tried the thin crust first a few months ago. That was a miss. Very thin, like a cracker. I abandoned my very favorite pizza place with a tear in my eye. And the rest of my gluten-loving family was extremely sad because they knew this meant the end for them too.

But two weeks ago we discovered they had a true deep dish option. Not that “sausage patty as a crust” nonsense. And I tentatively ordered it. The heavens opened from above and shone down upon me. THIS! THIS IS IT! It’s not exactly the same as their famous deep dish, but it’s pretty close.

Is it expensive? Yes. Does it only come in small? Yes. Would I order it again! Yes yes and yes. I’ve had it twice now and haven’t gotten sick.

So yes, Virginia, there is a Lou Malnati’s GF option. And now I truly believe.

Not celiac safe. Pizza tasted so good; however, immediately after I knew I had been gluten’d. They said that it was allergen friendly but definitely was not (even had the manager check off and included it on the receipt). Would not eat the pizza here again

The offer gluten-free pizza but I do not believe it is certified or made in it’s own oven.

Pizza was very tasty and they had a great handle on food allergies in general including GF and how to avoid cross contamination. Would definitely recommend.

I have ordered their crustless pizza every Friday for the last year. We have pizza crust from Senza Bakery that we store in the freezer and put our Lou Malnati's pizza on. Not once, have we gotten sick.

Everytime I’m in Chicago I have to eat at Lou’s! Absolutely love their GF pizza and salad. I’ve been celiac for 10+ years and have not had any problems.

No separate oven, but they keep the gluten free pizzas in a separate pan. Crust is a bit hard, but still one of the better pizzas I have had
