Gluten Free pizza crust is ok. Specify clear for them to take precautions.

Updated review 4/7/19 I asked for a gluten free crust because of a gluten allergy and the employee changed gloves immediately, asked what toppings I wanted, and proceeded to get fresh toppings from under the counter. I watched as my pizza went through the oven and as it was coming out, a different employee placed my pizza on the same cutting board where a regular pizza had just been cut! He even cut it with the same cutter. I immediately told him that my pizza wasn’t safe because he contaminated it. He stated he was given no indication that my pizza was for an allergy. I’m so glad I watched the process or else I could’ve been very sick. Another employee immediately made me a new pizza. I make it a habit of watching pizza places like this one and Blaze to ensure they’re not contaminating me. I was just disappointed that this happened at Uncle Maddio’s since I’ve always had good experiences there.

Original review: My favorite pizza place! They do a wonderful job to prevent cross contamination and the pizzas are delicious! Staff is friendly and accommodating.

Great GF crust!! I think they use the same oven so maybe not celiac friendly.

I found a piece of charred pineapple with stuff on it from someone else's pizza under a slice when I picked it up. I had already eaten some before I found it, and I am still having pain from it. I would have said something, but this is the second time lately they have glutened me. I wish it hadn't happened because their pizza is so good! I don't know if they are under new management or what has happened, but be cautious if you eat here and have Celiac.

They are always willing to use ingredients from separate, unused containers. The only ingredient not gluten free is the meatballs. The best pizza with the best options on sauces and toppings!

They seemed knowledgeable but really unenthusiastic about helping. My asking questions was inconvenient. The pizza was “meh”. I don’t think I’ll be back.

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.

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!!!

I’d give 10 stars if I could. Every time I go, I make sure to thank the workers because out of all of the restaurants I’ve been to since being diagnosed, they make sure the food is 100% GF. They’re amazing at cleaning the prep area (there is not a designated GF area, but the shared space is cleaned very well), the gloves are changed, new toppings are used from the back, the GF pizza is placed in the oven by itself and all of the workers are in communication that the pizza is GF. It’s the protocol that should be used every where, but rarely is. These people do it with a smile. I’ve eaten here several times and have never been ill. We love this place and will continue to go back!
