They had the best pizza I have had so far since starting my GF journey . I had the Chicago style GF pizza . It was fabulous! Very close to deep dish pizza and the crust tasted like regular pizza crust . They were friendly and very well informed about gluten free needs. Definitely will be my go to pizza for now on . No reaction what so ever.

Tasty pizzas, good crust. They’ve confirmed that all gluten free orders are made with dedicated/clean pizza pans and that there’s no cross contact

Waitress was knowledgeable and asked if it was allergy or choice. They did come out with a salad with croutons and Breadsticks although once reminded I was Celiac, they took salad back and made it again. Pizza was VERY good. Crust was tasty without tasting like cardboard.

I wanted to like this place so much. When I was younger and could have gluten, the location in Shawnee was good. But this time was not. I decided to order a gluten-free large pizza. The online ordering wasn’t working for me so I ordered over the phone. He repeated to me twice that it would be gluten-free. When I got it there was even a GF sticker on the box. The crust seemed different from normal pizza crust so I thought it was okay. It was definitely not. I have been feeling the effects since last night. I know for a fact the was the only thing I ate that could have even remotely had gluten in it, so it’s the culprit. I’m really upset too because their pizzas are like $20 for a “large” (it’s not as big as other larges), and also it’s $3 more for GF. I paid way too much to feel miserable. Just save yourself the money and trouble and steer clear of them.

Has always been my favorite pizza place even before I found out I have Celiac. Their gluten free pizza is pricy (like most) but definitely the best in Lawrence. Dedicated gluten free menu and have never been sick here.

I should preface this by saying that I have never had a good experience here. The first two times I ate here, I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt with regards to cross contamination. The lingering effects of a little bit of cc (namely, the GI upset that sets in within a day or so and sticks around for a while) are about the same as the effects of eating a greasy pizza.

The last time I ate here, I almost wound up in the hospital. That's how sick I was--my doctor recommended I be hospitalized. There were a bunch of mistakes with the order to begin with (my pizza was the wrong size, brought me the wrong beverage), but the crust didn't SEEM like a wheat crust, so I ate it. My conclusion, based on what happened, is that either it was a wheat crust, or it was severely mishandled. Both of which are pretty unacceptable.

I've never been to another Minsky's (so I don't know if they're usually this bad), but I sure stay clear of this one now, and I'm literally afraid to eat at any other pizza place since the training has clearly done absolutely nothing. If you're avoiding gluten for other reasons, you might risk it. But if you're celiac (or if you have bad reactions to gluten), get your pizza fix elsewhere.

After catching a K.U. basketball game in lawrence, stop in at minsky's Pizza, where chefs received training honors from the national Foundation of celiac awareness. the extensive gluten-free menu offers smart choices like hummus with cucumber slices to start, followed by creative pizza combinations. the "combo," for example, is topped with a mix of sausage, pepperoni and hamburger. and the mediterranean is a mix of lamb sausage, pesto, sundried tomatoes and feta.

I've given Minsky's numerous opportunities to prepare me a gluten free pizza. I work in KC and have been to 2 locations there, plus the one here in Lawrence. After about 15 or so visits, I've finally decided that it's not worth eating at Minsky's anymore. It's a shame, too, because I LOVE their pizza. I'm not a celiac (no bowel issues, etc.), but I do get migraines from gluten which is why I quit consuming it. I have a 0% success ratio at Minsky's. I've never been and not gotten glutened. That said, I've eaten pizza from Wheat State Pizza, Waldo's Pizza, Pizza 51, etc. and have never been glutened by any of those. That tells me that Minsky's just doesn't really care enough about their gluten free customers. And that's fine. I'll just spend my money elsewhere...

Sometimes the crust isn't quite crispy, but otherwise, one of my favorites for pizza. A little on the pricy side but well worth it.

Sadly every time I eat here I get sick. I quit going and I miss it so much. After three attempts, I gave up. Each time they assured me they would take precautions for safety and I still got sick. I just can’t trust this restaurant.

The BEST gluten free pizza I’ve had! For the most part Staff are very knowledgeable and well trained in Celiacs and preventing cross contamination. I did have one instance when we had a take out order, that I had ordered a side salad without croutons. When we got home the salad had croutons so I was unable to eat it.
