    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.

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

Be sure to alert them to any medical concerns regarding cross-contamination. They have a separate preparation area with safe ingredients. The only change that I would recommend would be clearly labeled take out boxes, though it is shown on the receipt, and they told us which boxes were the gluten free pizzas in our order. We will certainly be ordering again. Delicious! Highly recommended!!!

They take care to wash hands, use clean gloves and don't put your Pizza in with the gluten ones. Not only that but their pizzas are positively delish! Not super expensive either.

Since diagnosis, responding "allergy" kicks them into alert and they take great care of my man. And now, they remember him every time too! Seriously. They see him coming and kick into gear.

    Gloves are always replaced if specified allergen and counter tops are wiped they make sure to not place it in the oven next to any gluten filled items. I eat here often and have never had a reaction however keep in mind that the gluten filled pizza crust is made in the kitchen.
