Review of MacKenzie River Pizza Co.

4510 Skyline Crossing, Bismarck, ND 58503

Overall Rating


My family was traveling through Bismarck on our trip from Seattle to Baltimore. Being that three members of my family have celiac disease, I consulted Find Me Gluten Free and was excited that there was a pizza place just across from the hotel we were staying at that served GF pizza. My sons are 3 and 5 and very picky eaters, and adding the celiac thing to that makes eating out challenging.

My 5-year-old was so excited to get GF pizza and ordered a beautiful GF cheese pizza. When the waitress brought out the pizza, I was pleasantly surprised. It looked like real pizza. I couldn't believe my eyes, so I tried it. I was so shocked by how much like real pizza it looked and tasted (the texture was fantastic) that I verified with the waitress that it was in fact GF. She confirmed that it was; she even said, "It's really good, right?"

But it wasn't. My poor boy ate almost the entire pizza. And the next day, as we drove to Minneapolis, he had diarrhea the ENTIRE TIME. There were quite a few stops and some accidents. I had to put him in a diaper because bathrooms were not appearing as frequently as they were needed. He was so sick and embarrassed. I don't know if she brought the wrong pizza or if the GF pizza was coated in wheat flour, but there was definitely gluten in his food that night because everything else he had eaten that day I had provided. Celiacs beware.

Celiac friendly?
