Not so tasty. Crust & sauce were not yummy at all.
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.
This place gets it right!! They go above and beyond to make your pizza DELISH & SAFE!! Fresh gloves, food in separate containers so there is no cross contamination!! I would give them more stars if I could!!
Love this place. The pizza is awesome. when you go in just say gluten free allergy and they clean the counter, change gloves, and provide lots of toppings from a separate fridge. they place your pizza in a pan to go through the oven.
These guys went out of their way to prevent cross-contamination. The pizza was fantastic! I wish we had an Uncle Maddios near home. We will definitely be back!!
Excellent place to eat. Cleaned the surface before prepping my pizza and kept the toppings in separate containers. Tons of topping choices. Plus, great taste! My family loved the regular pizza too. And...not extra pricey! Will eat here again!
Very good pizza! That being said, this location, after asking if your dietary needs are allergy or preference, the staff will further press you for more details. As a diagnosed Celiac sufferer for many years, I understand the importance of these details, and I have an such an appreciation for it. However, I feel berated by the interrogation they put you through. There's often a long line and you might as well announce with a megaphone your medical conditions after the line of questioning they impose. The corporate office needs to train the staff to just go ahead and take all the appropriate precautions when someone says yes to the allergy question and no to it just being a matter of preference. I appreciate the diligence they're trying to put forth, but not everyone will feel comfortable putting the nuanced details of their medical diagnoses on display just to order a pizza when they've already expressed they need it to be made free of any cross-contamination.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place! If you ask for Gluten Free, specify if it needs to be "allergy" or "preference". They WILL gladly take it seriously, and their GF pizzas are SO excellent! Can't say enough, I'm very glad I live near this restaurant!!!
Great gluten free pizza!
Okay, St Pete, let's keep this place around! Delicious pizza, incredible topping choices, extensive sauce options. This is the first time I've not missed regular pizza! They are very careful with prep in a separate area and the two individual GF pizzas we got were amazing. Give them lots of business so they never leave us!
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.
