The staff was so accommodating to allergies and preferences. The pizza was the best gluten-free pizza I have had and the toppings tasted fresh and good quality. I especially liked that you could see them prepping the pizza yourself.
Very knowledge about gluten. GF toppings are in separate containers. Requested aluminum foil on the pizza pans. Pizza was excellent. Best gf pizza yet!
I love going here for pizza! The price is great compared to other places with GF pizza. I've never run into any problems here and all of the employees have done a great job with taking care of my GF needs. I highly recommend this place!
In theory, their GF pizza plan might work, but in reality, the are just to many chances of cross contamination. They use the same pizza pans the regular crusts are baked on and only scrape them instead of scrubbing them or having a separate GF pan. The guy slicing the pizza uses the same tray and blade on every pizza. He has no way of knowing if it's GF unless he looks at the order tag. I'd recommend this place for people with gluten intolerance, but not Celiacs. The pizzas are delicious (but not worth the risk).
Dedicated bowls of sauce and toppings on gluten free dough that doesn't taste like cardboard.
Delicious gluten free pizza and fresh ingredients. Staff Immediately changed gloves and took measures to avoid cross contamination.
Best gluten free pizza I've had yet, and a very well trained and pleasant staff. When we told them we needed our food to be gluten free for allergy reasons (which seems to be the phrasing most likely to be understood by restaurants), the employee immediately changed his gloves, and explained to us about how everyone on the line would be using fresh ingredients and separate utensils to keep our pizza safe for us. What a pleasure that was! And the pizza was so good, with a thin crust that actually crunched, and really fresh tasting toppings, including the option of vegan cheese. If I lived here, I would absolutely be a regular.
I was so surprised when the server asked if I had a preference or an allergy when I ordered. When I stated allergy, she immediately changed her gloves and got my toppings from new containers. What a surprise! if I lived in the Tallahassee area, I would visit here very frequently.
Best pizza I've had since going gluten free! Clearly labeled menu so I could easily tell which toppings were safe. Once I told them I had an allergy they prepped it in a completely different section, did gloves changes and unlike the previous post said.. they did have all the toppings separated. They actually opened a brand new package of prosciutto for me too. I'm one happy camper!
It's nice to have a place that we can go to with friends or family where everyone can order their own individual pizzas..... and that my kids with celiac can NOT feel any different! Pizzas are good.... have nice variety of toppings! My kids haven't gotten sick here.... yet..... but BIG chance for cross contamination.
This place is great!! I have celiac disease and went to USC. Having Maddios across the street from my dorm was my saving grace (I got gluten the 3rd day I was in college from the dining hall!). They are very knowledgeable and incredibly safe. There's a lot of transparency because you can watch them make it. I'm extremely sensitive and this is one of the only pizza places I still trust!
Absolutely delicious! I'm from out of state and it's hard to find gluten free options at times - great find!!
We have been happy Maddio's customers for several years. They take great care when you let them know you have an allergy. But lately it seems more like you have to keep an eye on them, and this varies employee to employee. My son has Celiac. Recently, I was offered a free cookie because my online pizza order was overlooked. I asked about their cookies, my recollection being that none of them were gluten free. "Yes - all of our cookies are gluten free", this employee told me. I took the order home & before I gave my son the cookie & tested it in our Nima device. NOT gluten free. I went back to the store later & the manager confirmed that no, none of the cookies are gluten free. So you still have to be careful.
Celiac here! I was eating here with a colleague and I requested the gluten free crust and my colleague got a regular crust. The employee behind the counter said he was going to prep mine first to avoid CC as much as possible and immediately changed his gloves. He prepped my pizza on a newly sanitized tray rather than directly on the counter and used "allergy" toppings, which are kept under the counter in sealed containers so that flour particles don't get in them. The pizza was also baked on a separate tray. As an added benefit, this was easily the best gluten free pizza I've ever had - and I've tried them all! 10/10 highly recommend.- just wish there were one closer to home!
The pizza was excellent and the staff was incredibly attentive to GF needs. They even took the trouble to come outside and save us from paying for parking meters on a weekend afternoon (nothing to do with gluten, but a great indication of caring for customers as people--kudos for that). Separate GF stores of toppings for the pizza too.
Gluten Free Pizza is pretty good
Perfect for Celiacs who want pizza. They ask if it's for an allergy or choice!! Separate sauce which is located behind the other sauce so no dripping and cross contamination. They clean the counter and put on fresh gloves. They pull your topping choices from new containers in the cooler. They use separate utensils and I have never had cross contamination or been sick!!
Truly exceptional. This is one of the few pizza places I've felt comfortable eating. They are meticulous with handling your pizza. They ask you if you have an allergy, if so they wipe the work space clean, change their gloves and use separate ingredients. They also clean their cutting utensils. Your pizza never touches the oven surface. Pizza is crispy and good. Five stars.
Always my go-to for a quick meal and always very good. They also have vegan cheese for people who are lactose intolerant.
I loved this place. They had the best pizza in the Panama City beach area. I can't believe they closed. Please, somebody, tell me why. Really good, so sorry to see it close.
As others have said, gluten free allergy or preference asked when ordering. Been very pleased with their GF pizzas which have a separate prep area. They offer 3 free toppings. GF pizza option is 9" only which is plenty for my good appetite and I very rarely eat it all in one sitting. My favorite is chicken, spinach and ricotta. If you order online, you can repeat a previous order which saves us time. Friendly servers.
The gf crust was tasty and on the crispy side. And there are a variety of gluten free toppings so I cannot complain.
Our favorite place for GF pizza. They assemble the pizza in front of you using uncontaminated ingredient bins. They ask if your gluten free diet is an allergy or preference. Since we are celiac, we say "allergy". Not sure how they would prep the pizza differently is we said "preference". In any event this is the place for us for best crust and confidence.
Went here on a Saturday just after they opened to lessen any confusion. The guy making the pizzas, after I asked for GF, asked if it was for celiac! I was really impressed. he has a premade crust that was thin but tasted fine. the sauce and cheese was taken from the back of the toppings area so that lessened cross contamination issues. All the toppings I asked for were taken from containers stored in a separate location. I felt quite safe here. This was in Knoxville, TN.
Not the best pizza. But the folks who work there are super nice, well versed in cross contamination prevention, and genuinely concerned about allergy and intolerance issues. As soon as I asked for gluten free pizza, the lady who makes the pizza started clearing the counter and cleaning it. She also got clean utensils and unopened bags of the ingredients I asked for. And everybody was super cheerful about it all. Nobody treated my order like it was a hassle at all. When I need pizza out, this will definitely be my go to pizza place.
