Got the Maui Waui last night. It was a really good and a nice size. Best part- didn’t get sick. Will enjoy my leftovers on the beach today!
Staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, I noticed the signs for GF pizza crust so we decided to check it out. They have 1 size (small), which is bigger than their personal size. I’m celiac and have had over 250 GF pizzas. This was the best GF pizza crust I’ve ever had (it’s thick like a garlic bread pizza crust). Easily could have fed 2 people. Very delicious and filling. Best part, I didn’t get sick. Decent value for the Hilton Hawaiian village (still about 75% more than you’d pay on the mainland).
Yesterday celebrated a baby shower in their private party room we reserved. Everyone in the entire crew went out of their way to make sure everything went perfectly!!!! From the service to the food, I can't describe how phenomenal these people are. It was so busy in the restaurant as a whole and yet they gave our party the utmost attention. I'm especially impressed on the crew being so understanding for my medical dietary needs. I have Celiacs disease and i get super nervous about eating out. They keep their salad bar so clean and the way it's set up has minimal potential for cross contamination because of how the ingredient line is set up (croutons at the end of the line) After eating the salad, so I was so grateful that the I was still feeling okay, I inquired about the Gluten Free crust they offer for their pizza! And boy was I happy, the manager Monica discussed the special preparation accommodations for allergy concerns and even double checked the ingredients (pepperoni) to make sure it would be safe. She offered to prepare the pizza herself so that it would have least likelihood of contamination. She even offered pulled toppings from the back bins! Can I tell you, I haven't been able to enjoy a pizza from a restaurant in FOREVER and I have not experienced any of my allergy outbreaks.Other restaurants often have workers that roll their eyes, scoff or whisper to each other about how frustrating it is that they have to clean surfaces or get mad when I ask if I can get toppings from "never been touched" supplies. Some places even get mad when I ask if they can please change their gloves. But not here! They were as careful as possible not to allow bread/crumbs to touch my food. She went above and beyond with every aspect of our celebration! There were several employees that made our visit so awesome and the pizza was delicious! Thank you!!!!!
Definitely not a celiac friendly restaurant. The employees have no training in gluten-free cooking or meal preparation. Yes, they're advertising a gf rice crust but there is no dedicated prep space and the toppings are not gf, according to the employee who helped us. I suspect she had no idea what gluten is and there may very well be plenty of gf toppings but I was too uncomfortable to place an order.
This is my favorite pizza and they finally have gluten free! The crust is made from rice flour. There is only one size offered- small. The crust was crispy and a bit overdone but still very tasty! It reminds me of their "skinny" crust. You can order it in any of their specialty pizzas or just the toppings you like. I got the Maui Zaui! SO GOOD! I hadn't eaten RT pizza in two years & I missed it. There are also different sauce options.
