My wife was wanting some really good pizza but she has Celiacs disease and can’t process gluten. Then we found Marco’s Coal fired pizza about 8 months ago. This place takes gluten free very seriously by changing gloves, using a designated area and pizza peel. Along with using a really good quality 00 Gluten free pizza flour from Italy. If your gluten free and looking for great pizza this is the place to go but keep in mind this place isn’t cheap but well worth it.

The gluten free pizza is specially marked and is baked in a separate oven. I've eaten here many times and have never been "glutened." The wheat starch* in the crust is gluten free. If you can eat dairy, the panna cotta is a delicious dessert.

*(The starch is easily separated from the gluten- protein part of wheat and is even approved in the EU for celiac consumption.)

I loved Marco’s pizza: it is truly a delicious GF alternative and was going there a few times a month. The last time I went I received a regular pizza that was not gluten free. I am a regular there, have been Celiac for 15 years, professionally am a food scientist, and my husband is a chef. The diameter was wrong, the box was not labeled GF like it normally is, and the crust consistency was wrong, there were giant air bubbles like the regular pizza. This pizza was not GF. The manager only tried to convince me the pizza was GF, before even seeing any photos of the pizza or genuinely listening to my concerns. I can no longer trust that their staff is in knowledgeable enough to ensure your food is safe.

They take allergies very seriously here. Made sure no cross-contamination would occur and labeled everything to ensure the kitchen and staff knew it was a gluten-free item. Mostly, it was the best gluten-free pizza I’ve ever had. The dough was perfect!

I’ve eaten there many times and have had curb side delivered many times. They have a dedicated gluten free coal fired oven! They make the best Gluten Free pizza I’ve had outside of Italy and the only reason Italy’s GF pizza was better was because they used real truffles! They have a second location in downtown Denver, near the ballpark and the same applies to them. If you require gluten free like me you won’t be disappointed!

They can do most things gluten free, but I go for their pizza!

They do regular gluten pizza in a separate oven, separate pizza peel and separate pizza cutter! I have been going there for years and have never experienced a problem.

For the price and hype, I expected better. Crust is gluten free, but made with wheat starch, so if you are sensitive to wheat, go elsewhere. I got sick, will not be back.

This place is killer- the servers always make sure to tell the kitchen and the pizza crust is so good it genuinely makes me suspicious if it’s gluten free!! (But I know it is lol) they’ll also make you gf focaccia if you want (for extra but still a nice option)

The pizza has a slightly puffy crust and it’s delicious! Shockingly I have had GF take-out pizza from here, safely, several times! It’s awesome to have a pizza option! Full disclosure, they use a gluten-free wheat starch in their crust. That is something I never would have trusted if I had known before trying it but with my extreme sensitivity, and the fact that I have been safe many times, I am pretty confident that it is safe. Make sure to verify the toppings. Not all the specialty toppings are GF and the menu is not real clear about that, but the staff is well informed and happy to check.

Fantastic GF crust (but not ok for wheat allergy). Texture is very close to traditional pizza. Toppings & portion size are good, too. Plus it is dog-friendly. Only downside is price.

The gluten-free pizza crust contains gluten-free wheat starch. If gluten is the concern, then you should be okay. However, if you have issues with wheat, then know that this pizza crust contains it. I can have neither gluten nor wheat. I didn't even think to read the ingredients listed on the menu and paid the price. For gf pizza, it was delicious so I'm rating this place based on that and not my oversight.

Amazing gf and vegan pizza!!! Restaurant says Marcos on the door so was a bit confused, but Racca’s is written on the side door. Excellent staff who are knowledgeable and helpful. I must agree that this is the best gf pizza crust that I have had. GF dessert as well!! Outside seating if the day is warm, nice location! Will be back, especially when GF family are in town!!!! Love this website! They asked if we were celiac and said that if we were they would do the same as just gf, order is coded, there is a dedicated portion of the oven for allergies, clean tools are used and cross-contamination opportunities are monitored. Ask for Mandy - she was very friendly and helpful!! Enjoyed my gf/vegan pizza!!

I don't rave about GF pizza. Mainly because every time I read some reviewer write, "this is the absolute best gluten free pizza ever" I find the experience less than great. I'll make an exception for Racca's. This pizza is amazing. My wheat-normal wife didn't even notice I got the GF crust. If there was a Racca's in Michigan I'd be there every week!

So SO good. One of the best pizza crusts I've had in my 16 years as a celiac. No intake issue either. Note: only saw pizza and salad as GF options but there are a lot of toppings and combos.

We enjoyed our visit. They seemed to be on top of it with separate utensils and a separate oven! The crust is not your typical gluten-free thin crust pizza. It is flexible, fluffy, and foldable, just like its wheat counterpart and what you expect pizza to be.

Wow! This gluten free coal fired pizza was amazing! It was cooked in a dedicated oven and I didn't get sick at all. The crust was thin and the edges were perfectly blistered from the heat of the oven. We also enjoyed some craft cocktails and a Caesar salad. The salad was a bit dry and wasn't well seasoned so we asked for some additional dressing and fixed it right up. The staff was very nice and the the atmosphere was fun.

By the way...this restaurant is now called Racca's Coal Fired Pizza but it is the same restaurant, located in the same place with the same phone number.
