I know many who love their gf pizza. I’m just not a fan. But glad that they offer this option to our community.

The gluten free pizza is great, but not all of the workers are trained to not cross-contaminate it.

Gramma’s serves Happy Joe’s gluten-free pizza crust and toppings. Decent option for gluten-free food if you’re passing through the World’s Largest Truck-stop along I-80

Happy Joe's offers all of their pizzas on a small gluten-free crust. Happy Joe's takes extra precautions to ensure the pizza does not come in contact with gluten. I have had Happy Joe's meat-lovers pizza numerous times with no issues. Highly recommend! Fairly inexpensive pizza too.

The pizza was delicious. I only gave it four stars because the size of the pizzas were even smaller than pizza ranch but for the same or more price. However, it was nice being able to enjoy their signature taco pizza!

Talked with the manager when we arrived. They were aware of cross contamination concerns and used separate toppings and sauce, as well as clean utensils and a clean prep area. Our daughter loved the gluten free crust. For ice cream, the server used a clean scoop on request and even let us see the ingredient label on the ice cream to ensure we felt comfortable. They acknowledge that there is gluten in the kitchen but seemed to take all steps to mitigate cross contamination. We had a very positive experience.

Used the same pizza cutter to cut my gluten-free pizza (was a glutened pizza cutter).

Happy Joe's has gluten free pizza and toppings. I love the meat and taco pizzas. Toppings are gluten free and so is the Jogurt. I have Celiac Disease and I done at Happy Joe’s frequently.

Meat,crust,spices are all not gluten free in most. Ask if it also a dedicated gluten free facility.

Udi's crust, small size only. Could eat a salad. Given the size of the town, I was happy. Would guess that cross sensitivity might be a problem, but my gluten sensitive spouse had no issues.

the pizza is excellent here, and I've never had a problem. I always get the taco joe, though I love that their pepperoni is a bit spicy as well! compared to the Grand Forks location, they make them here so much better. I'm guessing they have some GF crusts unthawed, instead of sending them in frozen. I was eating these weekly for a while, once I tried it...

Loved this place before knowing about my gluten allergy, pizza tastes and has consistency similar to their regular pizzas. Not the best gluten free pizza but good.

The staff of this restaurant is very friendly and they were really pleasant and patient about answering or questions about how they prepared the pizza. They have gluten free crusts, prepare the pizzas on a separate clean sheet of paper, change out the brushes for the sauce, and use a clean cutter. The pizza was very good and tasted like the standard Happy Joes's pizza. What more could we ask for?

Not safe for cross contamination reasons but if you don't have an allergy it doesn't taste bad!

Not cheep but was close to my pre celiac memory of the pizza. I called first and they were able to tell me their process with no hesitation.

Pizza was just okay. Gf crust tasted like cardboard. Was probably udi's. Mushrooms are from a can. Husband loved the wheat crust though. Better for those who can eat gluten!

If you have celiac diease Avoid. I've never been so sick before. No precautions taken. Cooks uses everything for same containers. Cross contamination nightmare.

Only gave 1 star because I could do less. Doesn't even deserve that. they use same pans they cook there non gluten-free pizzas on. No separate kitchen space. They use no precautions AVOID

Good pizza, never been sick. I only gave 4 stars because of the cost and their gluten free crust is always undercooked.

We visit Dubuque every other year, and going to Happy Joe's is a must!! I loved them before I went GF, so I was a little worried about their Gf crust. I have to say, the GF taco pizza tastes the same as the non-GF pizza! Yum! I can't wait to go back!

We called and asked a bunch of questions and it sounded like we might be able to eat there, but we found out they do not switch utensils and use the same ladle and sauce to put on every pizza gluten free or not. Due to cross contamination issues we were unable to eat there

I ordered their gluten free pizza, and verified that it was completely gluten free. Well after eating, I started to feel ill and had been glutened by their pizza. I later called and filed a complaint, they seemed to not really care that they messed up. All they offered was a 15% coupon on my next purchase, which I will never eat there again due to their non-caring attitude.

Any pizza you want on gluten free 9" crust. Just be careful of the toppings. And I saw the guy change gloves before handling my crust. All the toppings came from communal bins though so if you're really sensitive be careful.

The gf taco pizza is pretty tasty. First time trying them and it was better than Godfathers gluten free crust.

Gluten-free crust tasted great, similar in taste and texture to the regular crust. The crust is made in a GF facility but Happy Joe's is very up front that they cannot guarantee cross-contamination. there's even a notice taped to the box. $10.99 for a small, only size they offer gluten-free.

Their regular pizza is awesome but now that I am gluten intolerant I've been glutened each time I had their pizza. Won't chance it again.

Great crust, if you have more extreme intolerance I suggest to tell them to use a new sauce brush, but it is excellent!!
